This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Default Gripspeeder skates

I have been wanting to build 5 wheel skates similar to these for about a year now but just came across this design today.

My design, with the intention of building custom frames, would not likely be rockered like this one however.

I just want the bigger wheel(s) mainly in the front for better handling of debris and imperfections on surfaces.

A large back wheel is also reasonable for maintaining speed and coping with imperfections as well I'm guessing.

The 3 smaller wheels would be there for extra grip and lower skate height, same as the grip speeders.
