Hilton Head Outfitters Island Adventure Blog

Zike bikesHilton Head Island is perfect for leisurely biking. Why? Because it’s flat as a board. We like that. That means you can pedal all over the place without too much effort. Hilton Head is also known for its 80 miles of paved bike trails and beach biking. The experts at Hilton Head Outfitters at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort can fix you and your family up with the perfect sets of wheels for beach biking or trail riding.

Taking the area by storm is Hilton Head Outfitters’ new fleet of Zikes. The new transport looks like a collision of a stair-stepper and a bicycle. You use the motion of stair-stepping to propel a bicycle, but they call them hybrid scooters. Give it a try here at Hilton Head Outfitters.

We have two models for available for rent:

  • The Zike Slingshot is ideal for kids older than age 10 who weigh less than 150 pounds. The freestyle hybrid scooter has double chains for faster speeds and better handling. Its acceleration will leave biking buddies in the dust. Slingshots are also available for sale.
  • The Zike Saber is a BMX-style hybrid scooter with large tires, seven gears and a weight limit of 200 pounds.

Also arriving is Hilton Head Outfitters’ new crop of fat-tire beach cruisers. They’re perfect for the beach and can ride on any surface, including soft sand. We’ve got all sorts of lovely colors like kiwi, pink and blue.

Whether you’re a biking traditionalist or want to try a Zike, we’ve got you covered. We also offer kids’ bikes, children’s seats, kiddie carts and tag-a-longs, so children of any age can cruise around with you.

So pick out your set of wheels and reserve them here online early (we sometimes sell out during busy times) and hit the trails!
