The Flaneurz clique thinks of a way to thank you and go further together now that we’ve reached the goal. Flaneurz slogan "L'élégance en mouvement" (Elegancy in movement) means the constant research of elegancy and customization. You, backers, are unique and we are looking forward to offer personalization possibilities so that On Wheelz will fit with your look and identity.

1 - How did we made it ?

After 2 years of research and development at the FabLab of our incubator (Arts et Métiers ParisTech), FlaneurZ has developed the mechanical system "On Wheelz".

Designed with laboratories of the French Institute of Chiropody and shoemaking trades, On Wheelz is an interface installed inside the shoe sole and on the chassis plate. It allows you to fix temporarily your favorite shoe on any quad skate plate.

 On Wheelz by Flaneurz is developed by experienced roller skaters : tested and approved by its community.

          "I can ride the city during my daily travel as I ride on playground"- Joris 'Karambowler' (Roller derby player)

          "You can basically match your On Wheelz with your wardrobe...it offers you lots of possibilities !" - Morgane (Fashion Blog) 

          "I'm back in the 80's with my On Wheelz : so vintage, so chic !" Clement (Graphic designer)

2 - Kinematics

In order to unclip the skate part from the shoe, the Flaneurz key is needed. We choose to use a external key to insure that users won't clip out without wanting it. This key can be attached to your key chain with your other keys, so that you're sure you won't lose it.

3 - Design

During the research & development process, we optimized all the system : design, weight, comfort, ergonomy, impermeability, industrial process,...

  •      Design : With 5 years of experience in the industry, Arnaud, our engineer meticulously designed and developed the product to offer you the best quality of product.
  •      Weight : Comparing to a traditional rollerskate, On Wheelz add between 250 and 350 grammes (depending on the size).
  •      Comfort : Our chiropody team has not only validated the On wheelz design, but developed specifically for the confort of users a dedicated innersole. You won't feel the mechanical system while walking or rolling.
  •      Ergonomy : As a ski fixation, the" clip-in clip-out" phases will last less than 10 sec. 
  •      Impermeability : In order to insure the best waterproofness of the shoes, specifics seals has been developed. By now, we manufacture those seal by 3D printing (flexible material) and aim to produce them throughinjection molding. For that, we need you, backers, to help us finance those molds !
  •      Industrial process : 7 different prototypes, 2 patterns and 6000km walking and rolling have been needed to calibrate the manufactured product. In order to guaranty the best quality, the adaptation of the On Wheelz system into the shoe, is made by FlaneurZ cobblers.

We have a passion for shoes, some call us sneakerheads, we made sure that shoes won't be damaged by the On Wheelz system, they will even last longer.

                       

Flaneurz is a sustainable project:

  • By doing a crowdfunding campaign we want our backers to be actors of our project.
  • On Wheelz is designed and assembled in France, some parts of it will be assembled in an "Help by Working Center" that employs people with disabilities.
  • By collaborating with "Mobile en Ville" (moving in the city) association that organises trips where people with disabilities are pushed by able-bodied skaters : for every On Wheelz rollerskates sold, one kilometer trip is offered by Flaneurz to "Mobile en Ville".
  • On Wheelz is made by skaters for you. On Wheelz is a new evolution of rollerskating that has more than 200 years of history.

Risks and challenges

We are really excited about launching the first clip on skates to any kind of shoes system. However, the most important aspect of this project is that we fulfill our promise to you, our backers!

We have put a lot of work into designing and building the product, but as a hardware project we are also aware that there will be challenges of manufacturing, production, normalization, shipping worldwide and more. Our promise is that we'll rise to meet all these challenges and more with the combined experience and passion our team brings to this project.

We've given an estimated schedule for our delivery dates. We are committed to keeping you informed of our progress both during and following our campaign. We assure you that we are all working very hard to produce a sensational product that not only arrives on time but is of optimum quality!

We are excited to get On Wheelz by Flaneurz on our backers feet!

Thank you,
The Flaneurz Clique
