The Trikke - Three-Wheeled Fun

Looking for a new ride? Discover the fun of three-wheeled transportation with the Trikke cambering vehicle.

Trikke - What Is It?

A Trikke is a three-wheeled scooter vehicle with handlebars, hand brakes and a frame that can lean while keeping all three wheels on the ground at all times. The 3-wheeled stance gives riders excellent stability and makes the vehicle easier to control than a scooter or inline skates. What makes this vehicle most unique is the way it's powered. Riders use a combo of leaning and turning in a serpentine motion (for those of you who aren't "A" English students, that means "moving like a serpent") to power the Trikke. The motion is pretty similar to the used by a skier carving down a hill, except that the motions are used to propel the Trikke, rather than control its downhill speed.

Trikke - How's The Ride?

One of the first things you'll notice when stepping on the Trikke is how stable it is - it's much steadier that stepping on a scooter or a skateboard. But it takes a while to get the hang of the leaning and turning motions you need to use to get the Trikke moving. The motion seems really awkward at first, but don't get frustrated, stick with it. You don't need to push the Trikke like a scooter, all you need to do is lean and turn. The Trikke has a very solid braking system so you'll have no problems stopping. Once you get a hang of how to ride the Trikke, there are some great possibilities. You can use it as a mode of transportation. You can use it to go big in a halfpipe or try any other kind of freestyle maneuvers. If you're just beginning you might want to try out the Trikke 5. If you're looking for something more suited to freestyle riding, take a look at the Trikke 6.

Trikke Safety

The Trikke is a safe and stable ride but, like any wheeled vehicle, you should always wear a helmet when you ride. It's also not a bad idea to slap some knee and elbow pads on, especially if you're a beginner.

    Trikkes - Hot or Not? Vote!

    • Super hot - sweet three-wheeled transportation.
    • Not - skateboards and inline skates are much better.
    • I'm not sure. I'd have to test a Trikke out first.
