I could send you a photo, but it's a standard Luigino Z-Frame, available... everywhere. Better than a photo, maybe pick up a set to work with hands on. They're one of the least expensive speed frames around, you could…"
"Matt, your review is very valid - Thx! Sorry that I did not mention that I am the designer of this new brake. Believe me we spend some time and effort on this idea, which is now ready to share it with other people. For sure some features or…"
"First, you came in and on your first post you link to "a novel brake system" video... but no mention that you're actually a (the?) person involved in the design and/or sale of the product.
This doesn't give me the warm and…"
"Thanks also for your useful response! - Here are some answers (hopefully):
1) Weight --> the weight of approx. 60 grammes at the moment is not optimized yet, sure too heavy for speedskating competitions. But not for training / fitness or other…"
"Thanks you for useful response - here are some answers to you (hopefully):
1) However, still I do not understand exactly how it works. The video suggests that, as you bank the wheels, the mechanism kicks in --> the mechanism kicks in via a…"
"Yeah, so it brakes when there's lateral pressure on the wheels. As in, any time there's weight on the wheels at an angle. Which means I stop when I turn.
Not saying this isn't useful for some people, but like Mr. T…"
"I like the fact that the brake mechanism is located inside the wheel(s). This is arguably the best possible direction to go for a good braking system. However, still I do not understand exactly how it works. The video suggests that, as you bank the…"
"This video shows a novel brake system for inline skates. The brake mechanism supports efficient brake methods used in skiing and ice skating . The wheel brakes are activated by applying a lateral force on the wheels, which generates a controlled…"
