Orbitwheel in Action
Easy to Use
The idea's that helped to inspire the design and function of the Orbitwheel was simple. Capture the excitement of a skateboard, the transportation qualities of a long board and the fun of inline skates and combine them together to invent a brand new concept for wheeled sports. So the Orbitwheel was born! The Orbitwheel is, in a nutshell, a large wheel that rotates sideways around your foot. Better than a skateboard, the Orbitwheel is self-propelled by the riders sideways and front and back motion so the need to push off the ground every few feet to get moving is eliminated.
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 Orbitwheel 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. Ride them to work, on college campuses, to the store or carry them with you onto the train or subway.
