Acton RocketSkates seeks to revolutionize personal transportation with its signature rocket skates. Strap these electric-powered skates onto your feet to zip around town.
Acton RocketSkates are the motorized electric roller skates that propel a wearer at up to 12 mph.

Supporting riders up to 250 lbs., each skate’s twin 6”-diam. Wheels have a 55-watt motor integrated into its fiber-reinforced nylon frame.
Tilting forward on the toes accelerates while tilting back on the heel gently brakes. The footplates also pivot down to put your foot in contact with the ground for walking or going upstairs. Each skate has a removable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 70 minutes of continuous power (up to 8 miles/70 min. range), ideal for travel across a school campus, to a local cafe, or while roaming a neighborhood festival. Batteries recharge in 2 hours using the included AC adapter. Model R8 Silver.
