About

 

Blizwheel is the world's most portable electric vehicle. It is fun, fast, foldable and futuristic. It's the best way to effortlessly travel short to medium distances.

 

 

This isn't the same tech repackaged into a new box. If we did that, we'd have no way to reach our lofty goals of reinventing transportation the way we did, and certainly not in such a minimal package. We're a group of skaters and engineers with a mission: to combine all the best parts of the different e-vehicles and revolutionize the industry with an intuitive, accessible and truly portable way to get around. And we're really proud to finally introduce Blizwheel.

As we ourselves are skaters, we appreciate how much fun it is to roll around on rollerblades. We take the ability to use advanced techniques very seriously, and developed with those capabilities in mind. Wearing it, you can master the advanced techniques of one foot, scissor kick, S-lines, right angle turns and more.

 

Folds and unfolds intuitively and easily. Just turn the foot bar, unfold the heel bar, and put it on. To stow away, just do the opposite and put it in its thin case.

 

 

 


 

Setting up is simple. Just take it out of the bag, unfold it and put it on. Connect the buckles, adjust the binding straps and turn it on. That’s it, you’re ready to roll!

 

Blizwheel's premium kit comes with a finger controlled speed controller. We invented this smooth, intuitive method to control your acceleration and it's a whole lot of fun. The way it works is simple- just to bend your finger to accelerate and straighten your finger to slow down and stop.

The finger controls are available in the Pro kit. The other kits come with intuitive handheld controllers.

 

The Dashboard on the controller can show you the current speed, max speed, mileage and remaining battery life.

 

 

 

 

 

Built into this stunning casing is some of the most impressive transportation technology to date. Besides the powerful motor, there's the coil, battery pack, sensors, electric speed controller (ESC) and speed sensors. This type of innovation is never easy. In fact, our first seven prototypes failed to deliver the level of performance we wanted. And it took us more than a year to finalize all the relevant technologies and systems into our eighth prototype. Then industrial design elements were added to this finalized prototype V9.4. Now we are ready to deliver a product that works so well, it’s stable, and fun to ride.

Not a single inch wasted. All the components fit perfectly into each wheel.

 

Because of the two split wheels, blizwheel frees up your legs. While riding blizwheel, you can switch from skating to walking in no time. And you can enter the elevator hassle free.

 

The app takes all the data from your dashboard and displays them on your smartphone. Plus, you can see how you match up against other riders worldwide. 

 

Check out how Blizwheel compares with other personal E-Vehicles.

 

On a basic level, the experience will remind you of rollerblades, and learning to ride it is just as easy. Anyone with experience riding rollerblades, skateboards, unicycles and anything of that nature should be able to have full control in about 20 minutes or practice. If you are totally new to skating, it might take about 2 hours to pick up the basics of how to balance and ride with skates.

 

 

 

 

 

The Blizwheel Team consists of members in both the United States and China. Most of them are skaters, and they happen to be engineers and designers, with years of working experiences in Manufacturing, Mechanics, Electronics, Industrial Design, Supply Chain, Software, Project Management and Marketing. They are enthusiasts of innovation as well as skates. 

 

 

 

Developing Blizwheel was never an easy task, because it took so much creativity and passion. In order to invent a perfect product, our team had to “reinvent the wheel” many times. After more than a year of calculating, designing, testing, we finally got to this special and innovative design. Then we adjusted the design for mass production availability. In total, we’ve made 9 big versions and 19 small versions. The whole procedure took more than 2 years, and it required dedication, passion, and perseverance to arrive at a final product that we feel great about.
Our China team is located very close to the suppliers. So anytime we need to make adjustments to our manufacturing, we already have partner manufacturers lined up down the street.

 

The following video consists of raw materials during our testing of the start, acceleration, Smart Glove Controller and iOS APP. And they are all unedited.

Risks and challenges

We have team members in both the United States and China. And our China team has very strong backgrounds in manufacturing and supply chain. We've found all the suppliers for every single part. So the risk of manufacturing is somewhat very low. However, as it is a brand new product, there should be some problems during the molds making and mass production, which may lead to postpone of the delivery date. If such problems happen, our team will directly go to the factories on site to deal with them as soon as possible.

Another risk is the Legal issue. So please check your local law for whether it is legal to use in your city. As we mentioned in FAQs, generally if any one of Electric Skateboard, Segway, Self-balance hover-board or unicycle is legal in your city, blizwheel will be also legal.
