Brooklyn Workshop, the brainchild of former attorney Alon Karpman, launched the Skatecycle in July 2010, but the idea for the company and the product had been in the works for nearly ten years. The first mass-produced, self-propelled hubless skate, the foldable, aluminum-framed Skatecycle is part bike, part skateboard, and weighs in at a lean 7.3 lbs. With a bronze medal from the 2010 IDEA Competition under its belt, the company is well prepped to forge ahead with its mission to bring riding innovations to the commercial marketplace.
Just one product in this sale: The innovative, award-winning Skatecycle, the latest tech toy to grab the attention of gear-loving gadget freaks. Part scooter, part skateboard, the self-propelled device boasts sturdy nine-inch wheels and at just 7.3 pounds, is light enough when folded to toss over your shoulder once you've reached your destination—though if you're looking for a conversation starter, you'll want to hold off until everyone's gotten a chance to see how you roll.
