Balance Boards have been around since at least the 1950s. Today they're more popular than ever as a fun and effective way to develop and maintain coordination, core strength and of course, balance. But because they’re made of wood and hard plastics they can be dangerous to use for kids, novices and seniors and lack adjustability to match different skill levels, rider sizes and types of use. They're uncomfortable for uses besides standing and are too bulky for convenient transport and storage. We set out to solve these challenges by reimagining what balance boards are made of, what they can do and who they're for. Using rugged high-pressure inflatable technology and a patent-pending design we’ve created a friendly, versatile and portable balance board that adjusts to the skill level of the user and a wide variety of activities. We're launching on Kickstarter soon, sign up to our mailing list and be the first to know when we go live!
Friendly & Fun
Kumo is the Japanese word for Cloud. Like a cloud Kumo board is soft and user-friendly for all ages and ability levels. Ideal for indoor use and rugged enough for use outdoors on any type of smooth surface. From kids to adults and seniors, Kumo Board offers something for everyone.
Our complete set includes the board, roller and cushion, two deflator valve caps, two velcro carry straps that convert into a stretching strap and an instruction booklet. Each component can also be purchased separately. All components as well as most small inflation pumps (sold separately) roll up inside the board for convenient transport and storage.
Adjust & explore
Kumo board, roller and cushion inflate with a standard bike pump or electric air pump (sold separately). Increasing or decreasing the amount of air inside the board allows you to adjust the settings to match your skill level, rider weight and type of activity.
Portable & Packable
The board, roller and cushion deflate to a compact and portable size, making it easy to store when not in use or travel with when you're on the move. Included velcro straps secure all components inside the rolled up board (roller, cushion, resistance band, electric pump). Board strap converts into clever built-in carry handle.
Relax & Rehab
Kumo Board features built-in curve, or rocker, in the board. This provides positive feedback and engagement by rocking from side to side even when using just the board. Changing the amount of air pressure in the board provides infinite settings for use as a physical therapy rehab tool, yoga prop, standing cushion and a portable seat or table.
Fitness & Training
Placing Kumo Board on top of the Kumo Cushion adds instability and creates a user-friendly and challenging workout. Great for fitness routines and as a trainer to prepare for advanced settings involving the roller.
Rock & Roll
In this setting the board and roller are partially inflated and the board is placed on top of the roller with the curved ends down. While this is considered an advanced setting, it's a great way to get started with the roller because the curved ends of the board and the lower pressure combine to slow the roller down, and the ends of the board are only slightly off the ground. No other balance board offers this type of adjustability!
flow & speed
In this setting the board and roller are fully inflated. This provides the same experience as that found on conventional wooden and plastic balance boards with the added benefit of a rigid yet soft board and roller that are much more user-friendly.
