What Are Powerisers?

Updated on February 10, 2018

Powerbocking

A poweriser is the ultimate jumping stilt. The sport of using jumping stilts has been around for a few years now. It is officially called Powerbocking after its German creator Alexander Böck. The machines for powerbocking have numerous names such as powerskips, air-trekkers, fly jumpers and power striders. These are all essentially different brands of jumping stilt.

A jumping stilt is simply a stilt with an attached spring that allows the user to ‘bounce’ or ‘spring’ high into the air. Like conventional stilts, jumping stilts are worn in pairs strapped to the legs. And as with normal stilts they require a slight adjustment to your sense of balance but are not too difficult to quickly get the hang of.

And so to return to the question posed in the title of this piece, a poweriser is the best and most sophisticated version of jumping stilt on the market. It is made by a Korean firm and it is a brand name for a jumping stilt.

Rather than labour through prose describing how incredible powerisers are, just watch the video below taken near the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

As you can see powerisers allow you to perform some really neat tricks such as back flips. You can jump a meter in the air and can get up to 20 miles an hour running with powerisers. Powerbocking is a great outdoor extreme sport that will no doubt appeal to people who like rollerblading, skateboarding and base jumping. Powerisers really come into their own in the urban environment because hard concrete is needed to make the most of the springs attached to powerisers.

Powerisers come in various sizes. The most popular size range is between 158 and 198 lbs. Powersiers are suitable for people in the 71 to 90 kg weight range. To buy a cheap powerisercosts around $300. Amazon has the some of the best prices available for powerisers on the net.

Finally, be sure to buy a helmet and knee pads when you buy a poweriser because until you get the hang of jumping around you are bound to have a few tumbles.
