Stepping out of line.

LandRollers. With a name like a Japanese off-road vehicle these are apparently ‘the first major innovations in skating since Rollerblade popularized inline skates more than 25 years ago.’ Actually if you watch the videos they do look very cool. Even the corpulent and terminally lazy Ferret is tempted. Especially by the air-filled tyre, rough terrain option. $249.00 a pair.   LandRoller is truly a revolutionary skate that offers a smoother ride, improved stability, better braking, easier learning, off-road capability and dramatic styling…LandRollers have two large wheels…
