Jumping stilts are not toys, but are designed for both the professional entertainer and the novice sports enthusiast.

It could even be argued that by using “Power Risers Jumping Stilts” one is in the act of performing superhuman feats, giving them the feeling that they are “Superman” or the “Power Rangers”! Haste will give them the mental image that they are involved in some kind of “superhuman” adventure. Mr. Alexander Boeck is the name of our inventor from Germany and a question for you is… Was Boeck thinking outside the BOX when he assembled his grip style in 1996?

Your foot will be securely attached to a foot pad attached to the aluminum frame. The bent spring stores energy according to the amount of tension applied to it. When force is applied to the spring, it flexes to a point equal to the force applied to it, and then returns to its original position. This is where we get propulsion or launch and the ability to take flight.
