One Size Fits Most
Compact design for portability
Capable of countless maneuvers
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.aaaaaa.

I bought this for my 11 year old son who simply was... disappointed. However, I took it on myself to show him that this would be a lot of fun. After three hours of attempts over 3 days I was convinced that the product was a hoax and in fact impossible to use... but I didn't give up. I went to a mildly sloped sidewalk and pushed off and maintained a few meters of "sidewalk surfing" to my own surprise! I've now been practicing an hour a day for the last week and can sustain up to 100 meters of "sidewalk surfing" or "orbiting", as I call it, after which I need to walk for a while to loosen up my legs which get quite tense from this activity. Riding these draws a lot of attention and everybody is amazed at this new sport! I'm sure many of the people who asked me about these will be coming to Amazon to purchase them.
The Orbit Wheels are sturdy and well built. They are quite scuffed up now but still look good overall. I applied some oil to the inside of...
very long learning curve... but if you like a challenge they are great!
I'm an athletic guy, have strong legs, and am 20 years old. I ride pretty much everything with wheels, but these take way too much energy to ride any realistic distance. I'll admit, I had heard that before, and I was determined to build up the strength and balance because they seem so cool. Rather, after 4 months of long practices and being solid with the balance, I couldn't go any more than a hundred yards before my legs burned so much from the lactic acid.
