Hy-Pro International is celebrating the recent NPD results, as the firm's Street Gliders make a re-entry, becoming one of the top selling lines in the UK skates, skateboards and scooters sector.

According to Q2 NPD data 2013, the adjustable, two wheeled skates have seen a resurgence of interest and has seen strong sales since its launch in 2003.

Designed to attach to children's shoes, the Gliders have a rear breaking system and LED wheels that light up as the wheels move.

Hy-Pro is currently undertaking action to defend its property from possible imitation or replication, while developing a pro version launching SS14.

Hy-Pro commercial director, Simon Pickavance, said: "The new pro version of the glider will help develop sales further for our partners and will deliver a whole new age group into the craze of wheels for your heals.

"The Pro glider is set to capture some of the more aggressive trends in wheeled sports and will deliver on the street and in the skate parks."
