The concept of summer camp was apparently invented at the Chautaqua Institute, where they continue to offer day camp to this day. Cars are not used here; kids as young as four or five years old ride themselves to camp every morning on bicycles. This is one of several clusters of kids’ bikes parked at camp in the morning when everybody arrives.
If there is one thing we know at Wheeled Thing, it’s that when it comes to wheels, bigger is better. Big wheels roll over cracks or potholes that a smaller wheel will get stuck in. Big means they ride smoother that don’t have speed wobbles…
One of our biggest frustration with the Razor Scooter fad was the fact the wheels were way to small, and sent too many children to the hospital for facial reconstruction surgery.
Well, plastic surgeons of Ameraica… I’ve got great news for you – The Eon Scooter will soon be flinging kids off their scooters at speeds up to 45 mph!
The video on their Indigogo page is 1:30 in length. Of that time, only 20 seconds (with some of in slow motion), show the person riding the scooter. 35 seconds are shown with the owner dragging or charging the scooter. That’s right, expect to be dragging this thing around more than riding it.
Included Dork Mode
We urge you not to buy this rolling death trap… but our friends at Eon were kind enough to include a “folding mirror” which will help you to remove the gavel from your chin and repair your front teeth. At Starbucks they hate when you walk in with exposed face road rash.

“AeYO!” is the sound you’ll make when you hear the price 648 Euros or when you hit the ground in a heap after wiping out on this bike/skates combo that is neither a bike nor skates but something in between. Who thought it would be good to strap more restrictive things to your skates?
