It’s a fact that daily exercise and a healthy diet will improve your overall well-being, but sometimes finding the time to exercise can be tough. But what if excercising was fun? I’m all about innovative products that promote a healthy lifestyle, which is why I think the new Zike Hybrid BMX Scooter is a very unique and enjoyable way to get your daily exercise. It was even featured on a recent episode of The View.

The Zike Hybrid Scooter is the first product to successfully combine a scooter, bicycle, and stair-stepper all into one easy-to-ride machine. It comes in four different models, utilizes patent pending gravity-in-motion technology, and is designed to appeal to all ages:

The Hotshot Scooter
– Aimed at ages 5-8 with custom mag-type wheels, adjustable folding handlebars, and custom steel frame. The bottom bracket width is specially designed for the narrower stance of a younger child.

The Flyby Scooter – Targeted at ages 8 and up with a single speed, custom steel frame and folding handlebars.

The Slingshot Scooter
– Has an aluminum frame, disc brakes, folding handlebars and pneumatic tires designed for ages 9 and up.

The Saber Scooter
– Has a 7-speed group shift, heat-treated aluminum frame, pneumatic tires and V-brakes for pre-teens and adults.

All the models have custom grips, sealed bottom bracket bearings and wood laminate pedals like a skateboard.

Zike Hybrid Scooters seem to be geared more towards children, but the Saber model is designed for adults. “Zike-ing” looks like an awesome activity that the whole family can enjoy while staying in shape.
