A year or two ago is when I first started seeing these Electric Air Compressors pop up throughout the community. After a bit of skepticism, I gave one a chance and absolutely loved it. After pogoing for Fifteen years and riding a Vurtego for the majority of that, I grow tired of constantly pumping my Vurtego up to my jumping pressure, only for it to inevitably leak back out because I forgot to tighten something, you get the idea. The cycle is endless. So when I saw these electric pumps I knew I had to get one. After a bit of research, I found a brand I liked online and went for it.
There are a few brands out there currently. I went with the Avid Power model, but I’m sure the Ryobi pump is great, especially if you have other Ryobi tools in your household. An obvious benefit to all of them is of course, that you can pump up tires with it as well. I am a cheapskate who only buys used tires so I am a frequent user of the free Wawa Air pumps. -> (Read More) ->
The Motostik is a historic pogo stick that emerged in 2004, the same year as the Flybar 1200, and was used primarily by many riders in the mid 2000’s. The Flybar 1200 was the very first “Big Air” pogo stick that was released into the market, and the Motostik was almost like a hybrid between a Tech stick and a Big Air stick. A lot of pogoers then were obviously still used to jumping on spring pogo sticks, so the Motostik was a great transition stick into Big Air. We at AllPogo happened to snag an interview with Marc Matson, the mastermind behind the Motostik – a pogo stick that helped propel not only some of the greats of pogo forward, but the sport itself.
