What is a Zike??

Here is a little about the company, from their web site.

Zike LLC is a revolutionary company with a passion for creating the next generation of revolutionary, new, human powered products. Zike’s new freestyle hybrid scooters are an innovative combination of both a scooter and a bicycle – unlike any other machine on the planet. Zike is dedicated to excellence and committed to providing well built, quality products. We hope to make a positive difference in people’s lives by combining fun and fitness with our environmentally friendly transportation. At Zike, our vision is not simply about a one hit wonder or a one product success, but rather a passion for continual, inventive steps to the future. We strive to “look at things a bit differently.”  Our goal is to consistently challenge the imagination and to constantly improve Zike’s products. We strive daily to be our own best competition!

 

When our Zike Z100s arrived in the mail and we opened the boxes, the first thing we noticed was the great quality of the product.  These scooters are reliable and well-built.  The Z100 has a heavy steel frame, air filled tires (making for a smoother ride), and textured/no-slip pedals.  The front stem is easily removed for taking your Zike along with you.

When you get your Zike, a little assembly is required.

Using the Allen wrench provided, you will need to assemble the handlebars and the pedals.  It’s also important to inflate the tires to 45 psi before riding.  The stem of the Zike slides in easily.  Now you are ready to fly!

 

The recommended age for the Z100 is 6-10, but we had children as young as 5 using it with no problems.  It’s maximum weight is 150 lbs, which means us mamas are enjoying the Zikes as well!!  They are great exercise.  Our children will be enjoying these for years to come.  A product with that kind of “shelf life” is worth the purchase.  We are hooked, and thinking of purchasing our own in the future.  The ride is smooth and our children were able to ride with stability and control.  My 6 year old son had it mastered on his first try.  Steep hills present a challenge to little legs and light weight bodies, but that did not take away from the fun at all.  They sure are going to get stronger using their Zikes!  We can’t say enough good things about this product.  They’ve been labeled as “amazing” by our children, who have been riding them every day.

Want to hear what our children really think of the Zike?
