For those wanting to travel fast, in style and with a compact package they can carry with them with ease, RocketSkates give you foot-controlled battery-powered skates with a surprising range and a speed of almost 20km/h.
Remote controllers? We don't need remote controls! Your hands are now free for interpretive dance moves as you cruise about town- your feet control the skates.
Each skate has two hub motors controlled by an on-board microprocessor, and are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The skates communicate with each other so they maintain the same speed and behavior.
RocketSkates connect to smartphone via the ACTON App. You can monitor your skates and their performance. Route tracking, skate diagnosis, battery status, games, and social interactivity; the app keeps you in touch with other RocketSkaters.
