When you were a kid didn’t you wish your roller skates had jet power. You know, little jet engines on the back of the skate that would let you go faster than everyone else? Did you ever stroll around the mall in your heelie shoes and think, “forget this, I want to go faster?”.
Well thanks to Razor, the company that made the scooter a household product for millions and millions of kids, you can now experience Turbo Jetts.
Turbo Jetts are heel skates with an electric motor that will have you cruising down the road, the sidewalk and just about anywhere at speeds up to 10mph (16 km.h). The stylish looking heel skates ride just like heelies with an extra powerful kick. They’re the ultimate cruising technology to get from point a to point b and as you get more comfortable there are a whole lot of stunts you can do in Turbo Jetts (just make sure you wear protective gear).
Turbo Jetts feature proprietary 50mm urethane wheels with sealed bearings for an extra comfortable and smooth ride. The rechargeable 12v lithium ion battery packs give riders up to 30 minutes of riding time at speeds of 10mph. One of the best parts is that patent pending Turbo Jetts are designed for people wearing shoes from size youth 12 to adult 12 so kids and adults can enjoy riding Turbo Jetts together.
While our 10 year old reporter Tatum admits to Razor’s VP of Design and Development, Ian Desberg, that she prefers the good ole manual Razor Scooter, the Turbo Jetts are the newest addition to their line of electric outdoor toys. In fact Razor is the leader in outdoor toys. But with Turbo Jetts fitting comfortably for children and adults they aren’t just a toy, they would make a great last mile vehicle as well. Imagine hopping off the bus or the subway and cruising in your suit and Turbo Jetts to your Law Office or Medical Practice, you would have “bad ass” written all over you.
Turbo Jetts will be available at Toys R Us and other fine retailers in the next couple of months and at $129 they’re definitely not going to break the bank. Find out more here at razor.com
