HOT NEWS !!! Razor’s Turbo Jetts e-skates are equal parts Heelys and hoverboard


this year razer manages to combine
personal transportation trends like razor scooters, heelys and hoverboards
into its new turbo jetts e-skates the hard plastic skates go over your existing
Footwear and will snap over shoe sizes youth 12 to adult 12 one of the skates
has a removable lithium ion battery which you’ll wear on your dominant foot
neither skate is particularly heavy and while not exactly petite they’re still
small enough to be stowed away in a bag or backpack for a day at the playground
or office the battery lasts for about 30 minutes though it’s really dependent on
the weight of the person wearing them smaller children might be able to
squeeze a few more minutes out of them while adults pushing the skates max
weight of 176 pounds will have to recharge a lot sooner
luckily the battery only takes one hour to power up fully it’s a pretty good
ratio between playtime and charge time one that ensures that kids won’t get too
frustrated waiting to use these again anyone who’s ever worn a pair of he’ll
eyes will find using the turbojet second-nature
it’s just a matter of pointing your toes up and letting the skates carry you
forward at speeds of about 10 miles per hour the motor activates when the state
comes in contact with the ground though I personally had trouble getting it
going consistently part of the problem is that I’ve never used heel eyes or
anything similar I found myself treating the turbo Jets
like regular rollerskates a lot as it was hard to overcome that muscle memory
it’s not going to work if you do that after pushing off from the non-dominant
foot do you really need to lean back and just let the power and scape pull you
forward keeping the non powered skate in the rear though the bulk of the skates
made it unlikely I’d fall backwards I still couldn’t shake the sense I was
going to fall on my butt the need to keep one skate in front will at least
keep you from falling flat on your face but I did end up performing a few
unwanted splits even after struggling with the turbo jets and taking a few
spills at Toy Fair I wasn’t ready to give them up luckily I don’t have long
to wait for my own pair they’re available now for $130 both online and
at Toys R Us stores
