When I was a kid I was an avid roller-skater. In those days skates were not inline, they had four wheels attached to boots that had to be taken on and off when used. Although a lot of fun to ride, they were not a practical alternative for personal transportation.
So let's fast forward to the exciting world of electric vehicles today and talk about RocketSkates. RocketSkates are lightweight, hands-free, and tons of fun. The are a modern-day alternative transportation option that can be completely and easily fuelled by renewable energy.
They are equipped with four 50W DC brushless hub motors—two per skate. RocketSkates propel riders at speeds reaching up to 16 kph, can operate an estimated 90 minutes on a full charge giving you a range of up to 16 kilometres.
They have a quick, strap-in design, lithium-ion batteries, adjustable footplate, rear-wheel suspension, and electronic and mechanical braking systems. These amazing skates fuse technology and artistry to create a unique alternative transportation experience.
RocketSkates also boast Smart Technology in the form of an intuitive smart device app available for both IOS and Android. With the app you can track routes, distances, perform diagnostics on your skates, monitor battery status and interact with other skaters digitally. Yes you read it right, they have built in social media!
These skates are just way too cool. I am looking forward to adding a pair to each of our EV Life Magazine smart EDs to extend our range while shopping, playing and more! :-) If you have stories about alternative electric vehicles, we would love to hear them.
