The current prototype has a 5 x 80mm wheel frame. On the left skate, it has 5 wheels; on the right side, it has 2 + 2 wheels with the center wheel replaced by the brake (top drawing).

This scheme can be modified for various types of users and applications. The "City" model has a 4 wheel frame with 4 wheels on one side, and 3 wheels plus the brake on the other. This compact construction reduces overall length and makes transportation easier (middle).

The "High Performance" model might have 4 large wheels on both sides, with a gap in the center to make room for the brake. The drawing (bottom) shows 110mm rear wheels and 100mm front wheels.
