Introducing the Bont Glow LED roller skate wheel. A hybrid indoor/outdoor wheel that uses LED lights that illuminate the tire as you cruise around. No batteries are required as the magnetic floating spacer powers the wheel's core to light up when they spin. All you have to do is roll and your wheels light up as you skate!
Available for PRE-SALE with shipping mid-February. The wheels come in four colors; Cherry Blossom Pink, Tickle Blue, Pearl White, and Misty Teal and have a glitter pearl finish. They look fancy during the day and even more spectacular at night with a bright luminous neon glow.
When you buy them they come in a pack of four, so for roller skates, you will need to buy two packs. The durometer is 83A and dimensions are 62mm x 35mm which makes it a great hybrid wheel for indoor/ outdoor skating. Perfect for an evening skate or show them off at the rink. The LED lights also serve as a safety feature when skating at night, illuminating your path of travel and announcing your position to oncoming traffic.
The size and hardness are the same for all colors, so you can mix and match easily and are easy to install. The wheels will go especially well with the Bont suede range of boots such as the Prostar and Parkstar.
After taking the wheels out of the plastic you'll notice there are these little magnetic spacers. There should be one spacer per wheel. The spacer is magnetic, so will hold itself in the wheel while you add your bearings on either side.
These magnetic spacers are what powers the LED lights in the tire that light up as the wheel spins. No batteries are required so all you have to do is roll.
The hardness and quality of urethane make for a smooth ride on any surface and I love the bright luminous neon effect. When skating you get a great consistent glow and unlike some of the other LED wheels that you see on the market.
Check out my review on the Bont YouTube channel which shows the Glow LED roller skate wheel in action! I skate on different outdoor surfaces and you'll see how bright and consistent the glow of the Led lights are and how smooth the ride is.
