Reviews & Testimonials
by Oliver Carbonell
... When I hopped on it immediately felt intuitive and easy to control. It needed no explanation to operate.... Its function was more like a Stairmaster on wheels steered by a handlebar and the rider leaning in the direction of the turn, much like a bike. Each downward push with my feet propelled me forward; when I pumped faster I went faster. Stopping power was provided by a disc brake, which was effective and very smooth. The inflated wheels made for a comfy and enjoyable ride. There was something addicting about the repetitive stepping motion needed to propel the WingFlyer.
The verdict: Two thumbs up! This cute little vehicle is not only fun, but can actually be useful for practical transportation. Families will ‘fly together’ on pathways, kids will do tricks and get airborne at skate parks and commuters will zip to work on the WingFlyer. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone dared to ride across the country on one of these. Lastly, I like how the handlebar folds down to make the unit compact and easy to transport.

Family Focus Blog
A rave WingFlyer review from the Nashville-based Family Focus Blog was posted 8/15. The Flyer 50 blogger, Scarlet Paolicchi, made remarks such as: “I love my WingFlyer!! The WingFlyer looks like a scooter but has the ride of a bicycle and the motion of a stair stepper. The smooth pedal powered WingFlyer is really a great way to get in shape and have fun at the same time. Because it is an all new feel, I felt a little like a kid learning to ride a bike when I first tried it and I have to say that was kind of fun. We get so used to knowing what things will be like that something totally new like the WingFlyer makes you slow down and appreciate the fun of doing something new!” The complete review can be read at: http://familyfocusblog.com/wingflyer-review-and-giveaway/ She has also shared her review through her Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/momswearyourteesblog and Twitter at: http://twitter.com/#!/familyfocusblog.

Catherine Holecko, author of the blog, has a follow-up post on 8/12 detailing her daughter’s lost WingFlyer at a community pool party. Not only did the story have a happy ending as the WingFlyer was found safe and sound, Catherine raves about the WingFlyer as a option for adults stating “actually, I hesitate to call it a toy, since it is safe for many adults to use and delivers a true, calorie-burning workout.” Additionally, this review offers great insight on how consumers, kids and parents, are relating to and using the product. Catherine’s daughter looks forward to riding the WingFlyer to school in a few weeks and will be sure to lock it up properly. http://familyfitness.about.com/b/2011/08/12/new-review-wingflyer-z150.htm The original WingFlyer review was posted on 8/5 and can be found at: http://familyfitness.about.com/od/productsandequipment/gr/Wingflyer-Z150.htm
