The Toy Fair is coming and Dick got a sneak peak of Turbo Jetts electric motorized heel wheels! Heel wheels aren't skates because they just power your heel with two real wheels. An unpowered version has been around for a while, but the Turbo Jetts add an 80-watt, geared-drive motor to provide a one-of-a-kind boost to any pair of sneakers. There's no remote and only one skate is powered. The Turbo Jetts use an integrated, pressure-sensitive, power control system to help you ride comfortably at speeds up to 10 mph (16 km/h) for up to 30 minutes of continuous use. Simply step into the heavy-duty polymer quick click frame and tighten the hook-and-loop strap for a secure fit. They're designed for U.S. sneaker size “youth 12 to adult 12” (European youth 42 through adult 45). The battery is a 12V lithium-ion pack, with quick-change, which takes 30 minutes for a recharge. And yes, battery charger is included. But wait, there's more. You can add 'sparking fire effects' as you skate if you want. (See the company video, link below.) Age: 9+ Max Rider Weight: 176 lb (80 kg). U.S. MSRP: $129.99. They'll be available February/March 2018 at ToyRUs first, then in wider distribution.
