Yipee! It’s a Hubless Skateboard!

Calling all ye skateboard enthusiasts to check out this lovely FreeRider SkateCycle (love the complex name!), a self propelled hubless skate that allows you to rule the flat ground and any skate park! The features include 9-inch polyurethane hubless wheels, weighs 7.3 lbs, easy folding system, solid aluminum frame, durable composite body parts, and two slip-resistant footboards. The wheels are connected via a double-jointed, twisting axle, which allows the rider to twist their body and move their feet inwards and outwards, to propel the board forwards.

Just because you loved this so much, the skateboard can be actually bought for $149.95. That’s right….it’s not a concept, but the real thing!

Designers: Antonio Meze & Brooklyn Workshop

    Why is everyone such a critic. This isn't suppose to take the place of a skateboard or even be anything like a skateboard (it was kind of their fault that they advertised it like that but what ever). This is more like for people who like to snowboard like me. Have the feeling of being strapped in and be able to practice in the summer without having to buy a snow-maker and all that stuff. Stop complaining about something that isn't going to affect you and let the people who like this kind of thing like it without having to defend it all the time. I plan to buy it when have the money.

    Are there any advantages or different feel to this over freeline skates, orbit wheels, or xliders (x-gliders)? Asking honestly, might get one if there is some difference. How hard is it to work uphill? It is pretty tough going uphill with freelines, is it easier with these?
