LandRoller’s radical wheel configuration outperforms inline skates on all surfaces with a smoother and more stable ride.
“Size does matter! The basic physics of bigger wheels has clear advantages. For years, skate companies have tried to capitalize on those advantages by putting larger wheels on skates to improve versatility and achieve a smoother glide.
Those attempts have failed because the skates were either dangerously high off the ground, as in the case of Rollerblades’ Coyote skates, or unmaneuverable because of a long wheelbase, as with the TrailSkate and Crosskate,” states LandRoller co-inventor Bert Lovitt.
