I’m going to be completely honest with you: When it comes to “living on the edge,” I’m a total fraud. I’m all about the live dangerously situation if I can do it comfortably from my home while wearing sweatpants (Ya know, like how American Ninja Warrior is “going to the gym.”). My friend was all, “let’s go skydiving for my birthday!” and I’m quick to be like, “TOTALLY!” hoping that maybe there’s some sort of situation where we do tandem skydiving with an instructor that puts us at the end of the line, so that we don’t actually jump after everyone else and maybe there’s pizza.

I’d say that “stunt motorcycles” fits in to that dangerous living category, but man oh man would it be cool to drive one. Luckily, Maisto now has the Maisto Tech Cyklone360, which allows me to drive a stunt motorcycle from the comfort of my own living room. Best of both worlds!

This R/C vehicle performs easy 360-degree turns. And when I say easy, I mean it. It’s incredibly frustrating to have an R/C that can do really cool tricks, but only if you’re an expert driver. It does take a bit of getting used to—the spinning motion can throw off the accuracy of your turns at first—but kids ages 8 and up will be able to not only maneuver this baby, but also do the cool 360 spins.

The rear wheel also rotates and features LED lights that change colors as kids drive the vehicle, so that it truly looks extreme while in motion. They light up all different colors, which really adds a cool effect to the 360 spins. The sleek design of the vehicle itself is perfect for flying at high speed, and the pistol grip controller provides full-function R/C with very simple toggles.

R/C lovers will go crazy for the Cyklone360—it’s perfect for adding (just the right amount of) extreme to your life.
