ACTON RocketSkates are lightweight, remote-free electric skates. Just use your feet to kick off and you'll start rolling. Control the skates with your feet by tilting the skates forward to accelerate, and tilting back on your heel to apply the brakes. 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. Now Available for shipping.
