Orbitwheels – mono wheeled rollerblades

Fun & Games


@NYC Toy Fair 2009Inventist’s Orbitwheels are a blast and I want a pair – the inventor of them is also the maker behind the AquaSkipper.

Like a cross between a skateboard and inline skates, but with more freedom and simplicity than either, the Orbitwheel is a brand new concept for wheeled sports.

The design is simple: two feet, two wheels… and you’re ready to go. The Orbitwheel’s concept is basic, but with the wheels whirling around your feet, you are capable of countless tricks and maneuvers that can be as complex and creative as you can come up with.

With the Orbitwheel’s minimalistic design, fun and transportation have never been so portable and convenient. The large wheel radius enables you to enjoy the Wheelblazer on a variety of different surfaces. The two thin, light wheels require no folding down or taking apart, making them easy to slip into a backpack or carry in your hand. And when you’re ready to get going again, you don’t need to fuss with buckles and flaps – just step into the hoops and take off.
