Powerisers 2008 Model Review

Powerisers have been around for a few years now, with the 2008 model recently released we thought we would give the now heavily tested (hopefully) Powerisers a go. After watching YouTube (an example shown below), we thought that it would be a piece of cake.

Powerisers are jumping stilts that claim to allow you to jump 6 feet high and this claim is substantiated by those flipping over cars on YouTube.

It turns out that its actually harder than it looks… a lot harder than it looks. However, after a few hours of hard, but enjoyable messing about on these bouncy stilts you start to get the hang of it, bouncing and running adequately.

There a lot of fun and I think well worth a purchase, we got ours from Skatehut.co.uk and they seem to work very well. At £199.95 they aren’t cheap, but we still think they are well worth a gamble!

    True, the video was used merely as a demonstration of the technology similar to that used in the Powerisers 08 model.

    Actually the Poweriser 2008 model is better than the earlier jumping stilts models.
