Chariot Skates were created by an avid roller skater to “to increase the Fun Factor”.
You’ve got to admit that they do look a lot more fun than their ancient time’s namesakes, huh?
These are not your ordinary inline skates. Instead of having wheels right beneath your feet, Chariot Skates place them on outer sides of your feet. With such leg support, it eliminates strain on the ankles.
At the heart of this interesting concept lie tires. As you would know, inline skates use PU (polyurethane) wheels that have this smooth sticky surface.
The Chariot Skates, however, run on regular bike tires. Among other advantages, regular tires ensure that you get traction while riding in the rain.
Chariot Skates are still in development, but there are plans to build different models that prioritize speed, maneuverability, or comfort.
