Manuals & Documentation

 User Instructions Before using the Orbitwheels, read through these instructions completely. © 2013 Inventist Inc. Safety Guidelines for Continued Use: An important message to all users This manual contains important safety information. For your child's safety, it is your responsibility to review this information with your child and make sure that your child understands all warnings, cautions, instructions and safety topics. We recommend that you periodically review and reinforce the information in this manual with younger riders. Remember, you are required to inspect and maintain your child's product to insure their safety. Any type of wheeled activity can be hazardous. Wheels can, and are intended to move and it is therefore possible to get into dangerous situations and/or lose control and/or fall off. If such things occur you can be seriously injured or die. • Always wear proper protective equipment, such as an ANSI, SNELL, CPSC or ASTM approved helmet and elbow and knee pads and wrist guards. Long sleeve shirts, gloves, long pants, closed-­‐toe shoes (lace-­‐up with rubber soles is best), and elbow and knee pads are mandatory. Keep shoe laces out of the way of the wheel. • Young children should not ride the Orbitwheels. Use your judgment about whether a child has the necessary coordination and maturity to use the Orbitwheels. We recommend that only children 10 years old or older be permitted to use the Orbitwheels. • Never ride in traffic. Watch your surroundings for pedestrians, bikes, roller skaters, skateboard and scooter riders. Use the Orbitwheels in areas free from fixed or moving hazards, such as poles, curbs, hydrants, walls, and parked cars. Avoid holes, grooves, curbs, steps and other obstacles. Avoid riding over loose objects or materials such as small branches, litter, gravel, sand or small stones. • Avoid riding on slippery surfaces such as snow, ice, wet floors, wet grass, or any other surface that might cause slipping. • Avoid sharp turns and riding over any surface where the foot platforms may scrape the ground. • Use caution when riding over any terrain change such as pavement to grass, over a threshold or speed bump. When in doubt, avoid the bumps. • Do not ride at night when visibility is poor and you cannot see your surroundings clearly. • Check local laws and regulations to see where and how you may use your Orbitwheels legally. Understand that no safety gear can fully protect users. Only the user can reduce the risks of using the Orbithweels by using it safely and with control at all times. FAILURE TO USE COMMON SENSE AND GOOD JUDGMENT AND HEED THESE WARNINGS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND WITH APPROPRIATE AND SERIOUS ATTENTION TO SAFE OPERATION. USE CAUTION AT ALL TIMES. By using the Orbitwheels, you accept the inherent risks of using this product. The idea behind the Orbitwheel’s design and function is simple: capture the excitement of a skateboard, the transportation qualities of a long board and the fun of inline skates and combine them together to invent a brand new concept for wheeled sports. The Orbitwheel is, in a nutshell, a large wheel that rotates sideways around your foot. With the Orbitwheel's minimalistic design, fun and transportation have never been so portable and convenient. The Orbitwheel is self-­‐propelled by the rider’s sideways and front and back motion so the need to push off the ground every few feet to get moving is eliminated. Setting Up the Orbitwheels
Your Orbitwheels are packaged with the foot platforms laid flat. This is an easy way to store or transport them. 1 Snap out the platform from the middle of the wheel.
2
Fit the bottom of the platform on the base inside the wheel. Push down until it clicks into place. Storing the Orbitwheels
1
Press both buttons under the platform and pull the platform off the base.

3
Line up the grooves on both ends of the platform with the notches inside the wheel. Push down. Connecting Band
To help you learn to use the Orbitwheels, you may want to use the included connecting band. This band will help you to keep the wheels closer together as you learn the Orbitwheel technique. To fit the band to the Orbitwheels, first fit the circular bump into the screw hole located in the frame of the Orbitwheel. Using the screw provided, secure the screw in place with a Philips screwdriver. Operating the Orbitwheels
Position the Orbitwheels on the ground in front of your feet. Step onto the platforms with your toes touching the ground. Push off with your back foot and glide. For beginners, it may be easier to push off a wall or other stable object with your hands. Get used to balancing and gliding in a straight line before going on to step 2. 1
2
To propel yourself, start by turning your toes inward. Then push your leading foot in front of you while at the same time pushing your back foot behind you. 3
4
Next, turn your toes outward. Push your leading food back and your trailing foot forward. Try to make long, fluid movements instead of short, quick ones. Your feet will make an “S” or wave-­‐
like motion Continue alternating steps 2 and 3: toes in, toes out, toes in, etc. Swinging your arms and twisting your body might help you coordinate the motion. If you feel like you are losing your balance, just step off the platforms onto the ground. Visit www.orbitwheel.com for tips and demonstration videos! Basic Care
Before each use, inspect the Orbitwheel foot platforms and other hardware to make sure they are in good condition. NOTE: Worn or broken parts must be replaced before use to avoid personal injury, or damage to the Orbitwheels. If your Orbitwheels need cleaning, use mild detergent and wipe clean with a damp cloth. You may see people on TV or the Internet, and maybe even people you know, doing tricks and stunts. These are very experienced users. Don't try to do anything you are not ready for. Avoid steep inclines and don't ride too fast – you can lose control and fall. Remember to be aware of your surroundings. Return Policy
