Risks and challenges

Every production scenario involves some unknowns. Unforeseen equipment failure or an act of God can occur without warning and suddenly a well honed timeline is compromised. We cannot claim immunity to these events. Our production schedule can be influenced by many factors, some of which are beyond our control.

However, with our extensive in-house skills and experience, from product engineering to supply chain management, we believe our team is well prepared to deal with whatever setbacks we may encounter. We've worked hard to establish a good working relationship with our suppliers overseas, utilizing our "man on the ground" project manager in China, and are confident our production plan is realistic. Our prototype is well tested, the BOM is complete, and we are ready to pull the trigger as soon as we're funded. After several years of fine-tuning Glo-Blades to be the solid product it is, this home stretch of bringing them to fruition will be our finest hour. Soon, the world will be Skating on Light!

FAQ

  • Yes, Glo-Blades readily attach to hockey, figure and most inline wheeled skates.

  • Yes, Glo-Blades readily attach to hockey, figure and most inline wheeled skates.

  • The current Glo-Blades model only fits ice and inline skates, however we may be offering a quad roller-skate product in the future, Stay tuned!

    Last updated:
  • The current model of Glo-Blades available for purchase is not wireless. Instead, it utilizes "touch capacitance" technology to provide for finger-tip touch control at the ankle strap (think touch lamp). Simply touching the ankle strap with your finger controls the lights. Wireless Glo-Blades are still under development.
