About Kickbike Australia
Here at Kickbike Australia we’re on a mission! We want the whole country to know the health and fitness benefits of our scooters. And just how much fun they are.
In fact, we say they’re the most fun you can have on two wheels, for adults and children!
Adventure sport enthusiast Bruce Cook (left) began selling Kickbike adult scooters in Australia in 2002 after the good folk at Kickbike in New Zealand sent him one to try.
Since then 2700 Aussies have joined him as devotees of the Finnish-designed adult scooters.
The more the merrier
Bruce is also dedicated to aiding and encouraging the vibrant Kickbike community in Australia. He helps connect enthusiasts Australia-wide so they can organise competitive events and social “kicks” or rides.
If you want to meet up with fellow Kickbikers in your area, simply flick us an email or give us a call to register your details and we’ll alert you when something’s happening nearby.
We can also pass on your contact details, to local Footbike event organisers, if you instruct us to. This would be events for other Footbikers as well. Remember that Kickbike is a brand of Footbike.
OK, now you know all about us we’ve gotta scoot. Hopefully you do too, so please check out our great Kickbike range.
Kickbike for Fun and Fitness in Australia
A KICKBIKE adult scooter is the most fun you can have on two wheels.
- If you want to improve your running power and strength, then incorporate Kickbiking into your training.
- If you are looking for a way to develop core strength while just having some fun, then get Kicking.
- If you have had to give up running, but want the workout that running gave you, then mount a Kickbike, you’ll love it.
- The Finnish-designed Kickbike has no greasy chain or complicated gears, so it’s much simpler to assemble and maintain.
- Its pump up bike-like wheels make them less prone to jagging on pebbles, sticks and cracks than common scooters do, which means they are safer to ride for adults and kids.
- And a vibrant and friendly community has sprung up around Kickbikes, with group “kicks” for the social rider and also Footbike competitions for the driven.
- You can even kick for Australia in overseas events.
- So, let’s kick it for fun and fitness! See the Kickbike in action.

In my 30 years as working as a Sports Physiotherapist in elite sport, I have come across many useful and not-souseful rehab tools. The Kickbike definitely falls into the ‘useful’ category. We used Kickbikes back in the early 2000’s at the Brisbane Lions AFL club as part of our rehab process for a number of injuries. The loading and motor patterning associated with riding the Kickbike had very useful stability and propulsion components: the stance leg load stimulated glut, core and spinal stability (in a functional posture), and the propulsive leg action activated glut, hamstring and calf muscles with minimal impact loading. p>
This combination of central stability; postural setting and control; limited impact glut, hamstring and calf activation and the capacity to vary the load/speed makes the Kickbike a great rehab tool in late stage rehab for any lower limb injury that affects these parameters. Obviously, the capability to add aerobic loading is also an extremely valuable component of using the Kickbike: both from a rehab and conditioning perspective. The Kickbike is an excellent conditioning advice for all but is extremely beneficial for people who can’t run (due to the shock/impact issues) or ride a bike (neck/low back posture issues) as it allows for conditioning and stability exercise in a posture and with an intensity that can be tolerated.
