Mechanical Mobility Augmentaion Wearable?

Human mobility is awful in terms of top speed and biomechanical efficiency since a bicycle is capable of making a human go 4x as fast with the same power input, however a bicycle doesnt allow for wall-running or jumping or other parkour techniques, restricting us to a horizontal plane.
I tried walking in different ways, engaging different muscles and across different surfaces noting that some were much more tiring.
this is enough evidence to tell that a passive device that among other things would increase the elasticity of momentum transfer & that occurs with each step in order to increase the power of the reaction force that pushes the body forward & optimize the angle at which the transfer happens, this would effectively be a spring complex that attaches to the body, which would also act as an impulse dampener, maximizing the drop a human could take and augmenting vertical mobility.

however there are many more complexities to creating such a device which i'm unaware of and i'm also sure this post is poorly formatted as takes me this long to get to the question.

what would be the various complexities one would have to overcome when designing such a device?

I assume it would work similar to ones in sci-fi movement shooters like Titanfall, however I might be completely wrong as my understanding of physics is limited. as ar as i know a device capable of similar feats might have to be passive and incorporate pistons which expand with explosions of fuel/gas mixture or some other powerful source of linear mechanical energy.
