Super Turtle ®
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s everyone’s favorite sit-skate scooter!
Introducing the new Super Flying Turtle! You love the Original Flying Turtle – now try our deluxe model.
Tell Me More:
With all the popular features of the Original Flying Turtle, we now offer upgraded handlebar features on the “Super” model. Zip along any hard, smooth surface indoors and out. No motor, no batteries, no pedaling. The Super Turtle has powder-coated, steel handlebars that feature a “rams-horn” design. This protects the hands of little riders. Two soft buffer wheels prevent contact between the riding surface and the handlebar, offering even more protection and long-life for your scooter. Long-wearing polyurethane wheels contain super-fast bearings. Superior quality means the Super Turtle is sturdy enough to hold 200 lbs. Great news for parents and kids alike, it comes completely assembled and with a one year warranty for Home Use. Sit on the heavy-duty molded seat, put your feet on the bar, and simply swing from side to side. You’re off and rolling! So compactly built, it turns on its own radius.
Originally designed by a retired Boeing engineer in the 1970’s…this grandfather used his engineering know-how and a tractor seat he found on his farm to create a prototype model for his grandson. Look closely and you can see how the Flying Turtle® seat of today resembles the shape of yesteryear’s tractor seat.
In Brentwood, Tennessee, American workers produce this very high quality product. We put a lot of love and care into every scooter and it shows. The Super Turtle is manufactured and warranted for home use only. It is a toy you can pass down to your grandchildren.
The Super Turtle can be ridden indoors on linoleum and hardwood floors as the polyurethane wheels are non-marring. Or take your scooter outdoors to ride on the sidewalk, driveway and patio on concrete or smooth asphalt.
It’s low to the ground and has no sharp edges or spokes. The Flying Turtle® is probably one of the safest ride-ons for ages 3 to 12. With an eye to safe riding guidelines, we recommend that riders wear shoes and a helmet. Always ride seated with feet on the handlebar. Responsibly refrain from riding on or near inclines, stairs, bodies of water or roadways.
What about the materials? We are CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008) approved and certified. Independent materials testing was conducted by St. Louis Testing Laboratories to make sure our product is SAFE and may I say it – we passed with “flying” colors!
The scientific formula is More Flying Turtles® = More Fun! Riders interact with each other, flying through obstacle courses, playing bumper cars, and racing to the finish line. It’s kid-tested, kid-approved, and kid-powered – AND makes kids hard to catch!
How’s It Go?
We’re still trying to figure this one out! The unique method of propulsion has made our scooter the subject of studies in Experimental Nonlinear Physics around the world.
The scientific explanation goes something like this:
“The front wheels of the machine are connected to the handlebars by a lever, in such a way that they are located behind the axis of rotation of the steering column. This means that a torque applied to the handlebars will cause a lateral friction force by the wheels on the ground, a force parallel to the axle and perpendicular to the direction the wheels are rolling. If a component of this force points to the back of the car, the reaction force of the ground on the car (by Newton’s “action/reaction” law) points partly forward and accelerates the car. This is the force that drives the car forward and it ultimately comes from the force you exert on the handlebars, magnified by the lever advantage, which is 2 or 3 for the Flying Turtle®”.
Now, can you repeat that?
In summary, kids put their hands and feet on the handlebars which pivot in relation to the seat and work the handlebars for propulsion by vectored torque thrust making the front wheels want to skate forward.
