As a kid, pogo-sticks always looked like fun, but were inevitably disappointing to use. US-based Vurtego, however, designs pogo-sticks for adults and they’re a bit more on the extreme side. Its new V4 can launch users up to 10 ft (3 m) into the air and is ideal for a mid-life crisis. The V4 Pro is Vurtegopogo’s flagship pogo stick. They’ve spent the past five years playing around with different designs, and this is the result of thousands of hours of R&D. If you want the best pogo stick ever created, the V4 Pro is your best bet.
There are three versions of V4. A standard model is designed for most appeal, and which will offer “a soft, smooth bounce that resembles a portable trampoline.” The Pro model has a longer slide shaft for higher jumping and the Fit flavor is geared to exercise and performance training. As well as two color options, there are also small, medium and large sizes.
Designed to be be robust, the V4 comprises an aircraft aluminum casing, a shock absorber to soften impacts and a stainless steel slide-shaft. The V4 uses an air-spring that is adjustable for anyone over 75 lb (34 kg). Users add or release air to change the stiffness of the bounce. This means that people of radically different weights can use the same V4 by adjusting the internal air pressure accordingly and that the bounce-height can be adjusted to a user’s preference.
