Mom Always Finds Out received the Sbyke P20 for our Sbyke Scooter Review. All opinions expressed are my own. #Sbyke
What do you get when you cross a scooter, skateboard and a bike? Read on and I’ll tell you all about it!
I was reading a recent issue of FamilyFun magazine when this photo of a cool scooter/skateboard/bike thing caught my eye. I did not know what I was looking at – all I knew was that it looked really awesome! A quick caption search told me that this was the Sbyke P20. Now that I knew what it was called, I knew that I HAD to get one for my bike-riding, scooter-loving son.
The Sbyke is a cool scooter-skateboard-bike hybrid that was recently honored with FamilyFun’s 2013 Boredom Buster Award!
The people at Sbyke were generously willing to let me review (and giveaway!) an Sbyke here at Mom Always Finds Out. We don’t have a skate park nearby, but my son loves to try new tricks on an Sbyke out on our neighborhood streets and sidewalks. He’s working on learning to jump it. The Sbyke is also perfect for riding the paved trails in our community.
The Sbyke isn’t just for kids – it holds adults up to 220 pounds. That was good news for my husband because he has been spotted riding the Sbyke around our neighborhood now, too. I have even gone for a few spins and think the Sbyke is really fun. I personally like riding the Sbyke better than scooters. I have a lot more control and it’s easier for me to balance on an Sbyke than a scooter. The Sbyke is really responsive to the way you are leaning so it is easy to steer.
Direct quote from my son, Logan: The Sbyke is way better than my bike AND my scooter. (If you knew how much he loves riding his bike and his scooter – you’d know that this statement really means a lot!) Logan also says his favorite thing about the Sbyke is how he can do sharp turns on it.
We shot a quick video of Logan (9 going on 10 years old) learning to ride the Sbyke.
Every Sbyke comes with a short and a long stem so you can adjust the height as your child grows. We put the shorter stem on ours so it would fit Logan. And just in case you were wondering, the assembly was simple and took less than 15 minutes. The directions and tools you need come in the box, along with cool logo stickers in boy and girl colors. Just be sure to have a bike tire pump handy because you will need to inflate the tire before you can ride your Sbyke for the first time.
I really like one of the official Sbyke videos by Sbyke inventor Brad Wernli. I watched it before we got our Sbyke and it explains all the ways you can experience the Sbyke whether you are 6 years old or 60! It’s sure to get you really excited about your first Sbyke ride. Take a look:
