Blog - Flaneurz production path
The Flaneurz innovation, which enables you to go from walking to skating in a matter of seconds, is a hit with everyone who discovers it. The originality of the concept arouses enthusiasm that is sometimes tempered by the price tag.
Many of you have asked us about this, and we've decided, in the spirit of transparency, to take you into the manufacturing process, from your order to the delivery of your Flaneurz roller skates.
With this knowledge, we hope you'll be able to better understand the selling prices we're bound to apply, not only due to economic factors, but also to our desire to maintain an excellence in quality.
Flaneurz is committed to offering you high-quality detachable roller skates that combine performance and style. Our collaborations with shoe brands and other distributors ensure a diverse and trendy range. However, we can't control the dynamics of supply and demand: the most popular models are also the most expensive to source.
At the same time, we need to anticipate stock levels of all the materials required to manufacture the Flaneurz system. If we group together the parts for the shoe and those for the rolling part, we have a total of 30 parts designed and machined in France, all of which are made in France.
Patented in 2015, it consists of a female part housed in the sole of your shoes and a male part integrated into the chassis. Together, they form the Flaneurz innovation that enables you to go from walking to skating in a matter of seconds.A pair of Flaneurz skates requires many components. High-quality materials such as the chassis, trucks, cushions, wheels and bearings, stops, etc. ensure the durability, performance and longevity of your Flaneurz skates.
The Factory, our production line in Grenoble, France, is the hub of the Flaneurz roller skate manufacturing process. It's here that Flaneurz and Slades products take shape, through two key elements.
We assemble all the components we've chosen for their technicality and quality, build the chassis and transform the soles of your shoes.
