propelled by leaning side to side, the ‘sidewinding circular skates’ by hammacher schlemmer, drives riders forward in a serpentine motion similar to longboard skateboarding. however, unlike the longboard, the skates work without having to push off the ground. simply placing their feet on the two platforms which can support up to 200 lbs in weight, users can easily perform 720° spins as the wheels are not connected. an extendable rod can be joined to both, providing stability to novices and making the learning period faster. the ‘sidewinding circular skates’ are suitable for the ages of eight years old and above and can even be used on short grass, thanks to its 10-inch rubber wheel diameter.
