StepSkooter is the first and only exercise riding stepper that brings together the fitness benefits of a stair stepper and the fun of a scooter.
Intended for kids and adults alike, StepSkooter is a combination of a regular kick scooter and an exercise stepper that can be used indoors and outdoors. In a step-pedal motion, StepSkooter delivers fun everywhere: neighborhood sidewalks, parks and even your own living room (used with the stationary stand).
StepSkooter provides the rider with great outdoor exercise when the weather permits. When the weather is not favorable, bring it indoors to use with the stationary support. Riding StepSkooter provides a low-impact workout, toning one’s quads, calves, hamstrings & glutes while improving overall balance.
Interchangeable wheels adjust the speed of the scooter, allowing years of enjoyment as your children grow. Another unique feature of the StepSkooter is its push pedals, which always stay parallel to the ground and work the same muscles as a stair stepper.
Childhood obesity has become an epidemic. Children will want to ride this for the fun of riding a scooter, not realizing the health benefits they're receiving of a lower body workout, cardio and muscle-toning exercise. It’s suitable for both adults and children at any level of fitness. Anyone struggling with finding an enjoyable workout will love getting active with this unique piece of equipment!
StepSkooter is very easy to ride, kids as young as 4 can learn in less than 5 minutes.
To start riding, put one foot on a pedal and push forward with your other leg, then just start pedaling. It's that easy! StepSkooter is powered by both feet, but the rider can also coast, just like riding a regular kick scooter. Variable speed is dependent upon the amount of force and the frequency the rider pushes, with a maximum speed of 10 mph (using larger size wheels).
A fold-up design, StepSkooter is lightweight and convenient to carry. At less than 20 lbs, the StepSkooter is easy to pack for your next getaway.
What makes StepSkooter different from other scooters?
StepSkooter is based on a unique, patented design. There is no other scooter/stepper that is propelled with pedals parallel to the ground. The wheels can easily be changed to add speed or to be used by different age groups, making StepSkooter ultra versatile. It can be used in a stationary position, as an exercise Stepper, or as a regular scooter, giving you 3 options in 1. Other self propelled scooters and bikes in the market use different types of pedals, requiring the riders to pedal at an angle to the ground and making it difficult to ride.
The StepSkooter is available in 2 sizes and a choice of 5 colors: red, gray, pink, blue, and green.

Risks and challenges
Delivering the highest quality product to our backers on time is our #1 priority.
Dozens of prototypes have been tested and we have already fabricated many parts.
Final assembly and some part fabrication will take place at our own facilities in Elmsford, NY. This will minimize risks and challenges, and will allow us to keep a close eye on quality.
Preliminary agreements with multiple parts suppliers are already negotiated.
We have the knowledge and business experience to build the most awesome scooter ever made. Despite our detailed planning, development and manufacturing can always experience unforeseen circumstances. Although we have multiple suppliers for each component, we cannot control problems with customs or freight logistics. We have done our homework and feel confident that if any problems do occur it will have minimum manufacturing disruptions as we keep a large inventory of parts.
Currently, we cannot predict anything that would jeopardize the project. We will be sure to keep you informed and work to resolve any unforeseen issues. We love our Stepskooter and we think that everybody should get the chance to ride, exercise and have fun with one. Your support will help us to make our dream of having a Stepskooter in every household a reality.
