Originally invented and patented by German engineer Alexander Boeck, Air-Trekkers are spring-loaded stilts that
you safely strap onto each leg.

Once strapped on, you stand 18" taller, with 3 foot long, space-age, carbon fiberglass springs attached to your legs, ready to send you into the air. By means of compression and deflection, similar to a trampoline or pogo stick, the spring accumulates, stores and returns the amount of energy you put into it. The harder you press down - the more energy you accumulate - the bigger the return.

Jumping stilts allow you how take your favorite jumping, big air, or parkour activities, and crank them up! The Air-Trekkers' ™ is proud to offer you the finest, patent protected, jumping stilts, at importer-direct prices. If you have questions, we have experts who will help.

The Air-Trekker brand of jumping stilts is the oldest and best selling brand of jumping stilts in the USA.  Through 12 years of USA distribution, Alpine learned what features professional entertainers and customers like you wanted upgraded and changed.   Air-Trekkers listened and has evolved into a ‘ONE OF A KIND MODEL’ jumping stilt.   We redesigned the leg attachment with a 4” wide padded calf cuff to maximize comfort, safety and ease of use.   We even doubled the width of our bindings for extra safety and security.

The Air-Trekker brand has been a trusted supplier many USA entertainment companies including Disney, Universal, Six Flags, Busch Gardens, Cirque De Soleil to name just a few.

The September  07 issue of “Shape” magazine states, “Plyometric moves like jumping aren’t just good for your bones; they may help you live longer.  Women who did exercises like stepping, running or jumping for 40 minutes three times a week for a year decreased their LDL (bad) cholesterol by 7%.” So start jumping today!

With Air-Trekkers, one size DOES NOT FIT ALL. Your weight, age and cahoonas determine what model and spring strength to purchase.  VIP: Buy size (L,M,S) IN you weight category! Our stilts bend super easy, yet shoot you up with power and speed. For Example: If your weight is 142 pounds you should buy the smalls. If your weight is 175
