Product Description

The Orbitwheel is a new concept for wheeled sports and the idea is simple: two feet, two wheels…and you’re ready to go! A set of Orbitwheels is a cross between a skateboard and pair of inline skates - but with more freedom and simplicity than either. When you're ready to ride, simply put your foot in the wheel and away you’ll go. The wheels' large radii allow you to ride on a variety of different surfaces, and an all-new connecting band makes learning easier than ever! After you have mastered the wave-like propulsion, you can remove the band for amazing freedom of movement. With the Orbitwheels whirling around your feet, you’re capable of countless tricks and maneuvers that can be as complex and creative as your imagination! The Orbitwheel is, in a nutshell, a large wheel that rotates sideways around your foot. Better than skateboards, Orbitwheels are self-propelled by the rider's wave-like motion so the need to push off the ground every few feet to get moving is completely eliminated.

I wanted to learn the orbitwheels because it looks maneuverable, and the large wheels can roll over bumps more easily. I also like the hubless wheel design.

CONSTRUCTION

The Orbitwheels were heavier than I expected, though not too heavy. The wheels were polyurethane and the shape of its cross section is similar to that of inline skate wheels, with a narrow edge. The Orbitwheels were clipped together and had a strap, which made them easy to carry. It wasn't obvious how the Orbitwheels were clipped together. Good thing I didn't try to force them apart. Instead, I removed the footpads, then I saw the clip/strap that was holding them together, which I had to slide out. It would be nice if they could include a note on the package so that customers don't inadvertently break the clip by forcing the wheels apart. Since sliding the wheels into the strap isn't so quick, I found it easier to put one Orbitwheel over the other, in inverted positions. It is still easy to carry this way.

The footpads slide in and out of to the Orbitwheel frame with 4 thin grooves. They have good grip tape on them. You slide the footpads into position with 8 wider grooves (4 on each side). Once in position, a spring-loaded pin on the Orbitwheel frame locks them into position. On the newer Orbitwheel model, you release the footpad by pressing on a button on the bottom of the footpad, which button pushes the spring-loaded pin. While keeping the button pressed, you slide the footpad away. It took substantial effort to remove the footpad. I found it helped to put the wheel on the floor then to push down on the footpad with my weight. Inventist tech support said this effort was normal and it would be easier over time.

I read the reviews before buying this for my son and decided to make the leap. He's a pretty athletic child so I figured he'd learn how to master these eventually. We watched the video and we discussed how it would take time to master it and he would probably get frustrated. He's 12 and I limited him to about 20 minutes at a time. He took it step by step learning how to roll first by holding onto things, walls, chairs, in the basement. He worked on stopping and starting. He worked on really making his feet go in and out like in the video. It took the better part of a week (on break from school) and he was in the basement practicing 4 or 5 times a day. Setting little goals for himself helped, so he felt like he was improving. He could go further and further, then do it without holding on to anything, etc. He really enjoys them now and he's orbit-wheeling everywhere! He does have a low frustration tolerance so it was necessary for me to monitor and limit him while he learned so he didn't throw them out the window! The only little problem we had with the product was there are some plastic pieces underneath that don't seem particularly structural, but that broke off one of the numerous times he fell down in the beginning. Two little pieces broke off, but since he's mastered them, no more problems and it doesn't effect his ride at all, so I guess it's no big deal. Anyway, fun toy for the active child, fairly high learning curve, but it can be done!

when i got these my dad thought i could not learn how to ride these. He was wrong it only tok me about a couple of weeks because i am determined. i urge the begginers to wear helemets for first use because you will fall on your face more than once. these orbit wheels are great quality and ride smoothly.i must admit i do show off when i am riding them because they are so cool. people will continuely ask you what tose are and some want pictures. so be ready for the fame and glory. i really recommend these for everybody because they are so much fun to ride.

Let me start by saying ALL the people who gave this a one star are wieners, yes wieners.These are very hard to learn to ride, but to give something a bad review cause your weenie little eight year old can't ride them and you find it o.k. to let them give up probably after less than two hours of riding, but yes the product must be bad. No your kids suck.

I did give it a four star because the are exceptionally hard to learn how to ride, but now I shred at the skate park.

The skates are a solid design that can be made very compact, so much so, I always have mine in my car in case I want to ride. Have the green pair and are a bit flashy so you will be getting a lot of questions.

You will have to be extremely persistent with these, but you will be rewarded.

Side note: If you have Freeline's these might worth the investment. Ride these for fifteen minutes then switch to Freeline's and you will feel sturdier than ever. Also these in general are just a great strength, and balance trainer.

Kids love it, but it takes them a couple weeks to adapt to it. But it rides only along the sides. Easy to get on and off. and not too big to carry along.

My son spent three days in a row using these and while he definitely improved, he still has to hold onto something to use them. They're definitely challenging! However, he's still going to keep at it. They are structurally sturdy. The only issue was the connecting piece which popped off with a slight tug and didn't really do the job they were supposed to. Fixing it took a bit of doing, but now it holds them together much better. I suggest tying the rubber band more snugly before using it. Oh, and definitely wear padding! (Ouch!) Otherwise, all seems good!
