Fun new way to skate at night

From Sunset Skateboards out of California comes the Flare LED Skateboard Wheels with Light Emitting Diodes or LED’s inside the urethane wheels. While not a completely new concept to the market, which is clearly represented in the promo video with the terrible 80′s montage music and filming style and at $39.95 they are not that bad of a deal.

They are still kind of cool and I am sure there are going to be some cool applications for them such as long exposure photographysafety while bombing hills at night or while out for a late night cruise with your gang.  But if you are more like me and want just some good Ol’ fashion skate wheels and a new deck then in the words of Ron Burgundy- “Stay classy San Diego”.
