Rethinking the old KP design is very interesting but so far no one came up with anything better, This is true not only for quad skates but for skateboarding too.

And this design has been used for more than a century now.

So if you think it's easy to do better, chances are you are wrong.

But still a very good challenge, and probably someday someone will come with something better. Hope so
I'm waiting for anti-gravity devices, thinking the skateboard in back to the future.
