Guide Review - Orbit Wheels - A New Inline Skating Sport Concept

Don't get rid of your real inline skates, but if you want to try skating on a cross between a skateboard and inline skates and don't mind rolling sideways, these Orbit Wheels may be fun for you.

These skates are simple. Just slip your feet through the stirrup with your shoes on, and you can glide around sideways. The Orbit Wheel concept is basic, and as the wheels whirl around your feet, it's up to you to invent tricks and maneuvers for this new type of skate.

Orbit Wheels provide fun and alternative wheeled transportation in portable, convenient skates.
