Default VNO Quads - detachable shoe skates anyone?

Came across these prototype quad wheel plate thingees on youtube.... see http://vnoquads.com/

Interesting that they use staggered wheels and a type of custom suspension.

Both detachable and solid built in versions.

Default Interesting

Those look very interesting. I would like to try some to see how they perform.

I wonder how long their research and development will take.

Default That link would not come up for me but......

I do know someone who skates them. She skates fast shuffle at a reasonable pace.

Saw a second person in the rink in these. Yea thereís no edging, canít really imagine backwards skating in them.

I am bothered with what they show you, and what they don't show you. Oh, look..... fast. Oh, look, one second to put on. All a little too convenient. They don't show much turning. No real world skating aside from a 50 fi straight line. Makes me suspicious.

As a comparison, I think this:
https://www.cardiffskate.com/pages/how-it-works

would work better.
Has some seemingly good characteristics. Long wheelbase, great for outdoor, great turning potential after lifting the toe. (pivot around the two mid wheels)
And a pretty decent looking length and strap adjustments.

I guess that would make it a decent go straight skate. Bike path or board walk. Not much on stopping technique though.

I will admit, it presents nice, and looks cool.

Didn't someone else do something like this? Less clean, straps, spring suspension, and a bit of wheel turning action. Scorpion perhaps, was the name?

Yep, Skorpions. The Quadline is the street skate. Works quite well. The springs are part of the steering action, the equivalent of cushions on quads.

Ah, there you go. Not as sexy as the OP ones, but likely work a bit better.

I decided to track down more Cardiff Skates videos. That would likely be my choice for some outdoor skating. It actually matches my skating style: Pick up a toe, push from the opposite heel. 90 and 100mm wheels for the adult large, nice long wheelbase for outdoor, but turn on a dime once you lift the toe wheel. And only $119 online. Decent skating at a bargain price.
