A new toy line from Rollerblade Skates, which launched a few months ago, is coming to the US, and that’s a good thing.
This week, they’ll debut their new Rollerblade Rollerbikes at the LA Expo, a skateboarding convention.
The bikes are designed to look and feel like skateboarders, with the wheels and rails covered in skates that resemble skateboard skateboarder skateboards.
The lines were inspired by skateboard rider and skateboard owner Paul Skalnik, who first began making rollerbladers in the 1980s, and was inspired by a skateboard design he saw in a magazine called Rollerblade.
“We started to build our own roller blades and we made skateboard blades,” says Ryan McQuaid, the product director for the company.
“I thought, this is the future.”
Rollerblade’s Rollerbik Skateboards will retail for $4.99, and the company plans to have the Skates for Sale range of two to three skate models available this spring.
Rollerblades aren’t the only new toy lines coming to US retailers this year.
There’s also a new line from Lego called LEGO Skateboarding, which will release this spring for $14.99.
This new line will feature skateboard-like models and will have a skate theme.
The company plans on releasing these skateboard wheels for $19.99 at brick-and-mortar retailers.
Skateboarder Skatebooks are also coming to Amazon.com in spring.
Skater Boy is a skate book that will be available in April.
The books will be about 10 inches high and will feature all of the skateboard tricks, tricks, and tricks of the genre.
The first book will have tricks from the Rollerblade series and the second book will include tricks from Rollerblader Skatebook.
Skating has been a passion of McQuays life for years.
In college, he used to skate and do tricks, but it wasn’t until he met Paul Skaldnik, the man who made rollerblading, that he really started to love the sport.
“Paul taught me everything I know about the sport, from learning how to make the wheels to what a roller skate is and how it can be used as a prop,” says McQuay.
“It was a life changing experience.”
The skateboards are priced at $4 each, which isn’t too much more than you might pay for a pair of rollerbladed shoes, but they’re also worth the price of admission.
The new lines are also bringing some fun to the skateboarding world, especially for fans of skateboarding who have been asking for something like this.
“This is a huge opportunity for skateboarding, and I think this is an important moment for skateboardboarding,” says Skalik.
“The future of skateboard is riding these things and enjoying them.
I think we’ve come a long way.”
Rollerbladers Skatebikes are coming to Walmart and other retailers in April, and Skateboy SkateBooks are also expected to launch this year at brick and mortar stores.
“These products are a great way for kids to learn and to explore the world of skateboards, and we are excited to bring this fun to kids of all ages,” says Tony Todt, executive vice president of global sales for LEGO Skating.
