Re engineered from the original Kick 'N Go scooter of the 1970s, the Pulse Xcelerator Kick 'N Go scooter provides a modern incarnation of the classic racing machine with a markedly faster and smoother ride.
Unlike traditional scooters that require constant pushing off the ground, the Pulse Kick 'N Go uses a unique chain driven kick lever propulsion system that allows you to accelerate and maintain speed without ever touching foot-to-ground.
Even beginning riders can hop on and execute tight turns while maintaining a balanced stance on the deck. It features a high-performance Chromoly steel frame with an ultra fine traction stripe on an ultra stiff, high tensile steel punch deck. You'll power the scooter with the single-action, dual sided, T-bar propulsion pedal at the back of the deck. After kicking it to power your ride, the T-bar comes back to its normal position within a few seconds for another propulsive kick.
The handlebar includes ally, two-finger brake levers, dual-density control grips, and an internal downtube folding mechanism. It's completed by upgradeable BSB ABEC 7 precision speed bearings and 92A urethane street racing wheels with reinforced nylon hubs.
***** As of 2012 - it looks like Pulse is no longer making these scooters. ******
In 2009 I wrote to the Pulse company about the Pulse Kick 'N Go. I was lucky enough to have them mail me out a brand new Pulse Kick 'N Go Xcelerator to give one a try. I must say they work very, very well. They are taller then the original and actually steer like the regular skooter. The brake is set up like a drum brake and stops very well. While they are a tad heavy, it allows users to save the originals while beating on something where parts can still be found. I have seen quite a few Pulse ones on Ebay but it appears Pulse has already killed these from their line up.
