SKIMOTION SCOOTER:AN INNOVATIVE DESIGN TO TAKE PEOPLE’S ATTENTION

Accepting the fact that there are so many scooters or bicycles in which manual power is used to drive yourself where ever you want to go but none of them has such a perfect design in which your upper body muscles can also play a vital role as in the creation of ski motion and you will see later on in the video a very unique motion and the creators called it as butterfly motion

HOW TO USE

SkiMotion is a scooter with two individual legs that are independently linked to the front tube and while driving it people propel themselves down a path by opening and closing their legs.You extend your two legs outward, and the swivel-mounted wheels transform that energy into forward motion. The four-point pivot hub up front allows you to get your upper body involved, powering into turns and carving up hills. That is how they move this scooter just like as we Do Kegel exercises.

EXERCISES

The SkiMotion allows for five different styles of motion and exercise: butterfly, cambering, skating, ski motion and cross country ski training.

TOP SPEED

Its listed top speed is 17 mph (27.4 km/h)

The SkiMotion uses sturdy steel construction. Its 200-mm (7.9-in) front wheel is about double the size of each rear wheel, a design that SkiMotion says is aimed at stability and control. The bike is equipped with cantilever brakes on each wheel and includes two adjustable brake levers.

AVAILABILITY

The SkiMotion is already available in Asia. It will launch in the United States in October. The adult version, which weighs 26.5 pounds (12 kg) and supports riders up to 200 pounds (90 kg) will retail for US$289. A smaller child’s version (up to 155 lbs/70 kg) will also be available for $239. That price includes an optional set of LED rear wheels.
