Looks quite cool, but i think it’s a project for product design? for university / higher education, as that board behind looks like the sort of presentation you would do for that. Albeit, it’s a very good one!
Hello! This is the presentation for a final project for design master courses.
With this project I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. :)
It’s a study of history of rollerblading, an analytical and comparative study of almost all models on the market and my vision about a pair of skates. (a usable one)
In the near future I’ll post more details about it. (pictures and stuff)
Good day to all!
Looks most like an open-shell Carbon to me, which would be a pretty good idea. Remz made the OS model to use less material, and make a more affordable skate to get people to try them out. Not to mention, there was an advantage to using the OS models, since they are lighter…… an open-carbon would bring alot more customers to USD. I thought about trying out carbons, but I could never justify the price tag. So even if this really is a “college project”, USD or even some other company should purchase the design, because it seems to be a genuinely good idea. Also, I like the strap design. Instead of a simple toe strap, it goes diagonally across the foot into a toe strap. Looks alot more sturdy than my Remz Os, or the Xsjado normal toe design. I’d love to see clearer pics
Thanks for the appreciations! (for those who are open minded and appreciate a project) and thanks Danielson. This skates are the first prototype, that doesn’t make them perfect. After testing them I can now what changes to make. And beside they are in the memory of one of the best romanian rollerblader Mircea Mocanu – Bobo, who died in 2009 (RIP).
I hope this leads somewhere, we need some decent EU made boots again if your work goes somewhere please dont produce them in China or sell the Concept to a US Company, Rollerblading needs something durable again like Roces used to be.
Wow this like a Roman sandal with wheels n also an awesome project! I wish it can be support by some local investors n will be the pride of the nation (so far I know, Romania was the manufacture for Salomon n Xsjado). Keep it going homie, mad support from Indonesian rollerblading scene…
@ Andrei….. You’re welcome. I think you did a really good job, and honestly, I’d like to try them. I would buy a pair with my own money. Unfortunately, alot of skaters on this site only know how to talk shit. Most real companies can’t put out designs this good/ interesting, so If you did this for a school project, than I think you did a damn good job and deserve all the credit in the world.
