What is a TRIKKE?
(pronounced trike with long i)
Trikke is a unique three wheel scooter or preferably a 3-point
cambering (leaning) vehicle that allow the frame to lean into turns while keeping
three wheels on the ground. The unmatched stability of this patented platform, combined
with Trikke's durable, lightweight, folding frame provides superior solutions for
no-impact fitness and re-creation.
Trikke's three-wheeled cambering vehicles utilize Trikke Tech
patented 3CV technology to allow a rider to propel a chainless, pedal-less device
forward without ever touching foot to ground. This elegantly simple construct provides
a stable 3-point platform that leans into the turn with the rider while all three
wheels remain in contact with the ground. A rider may reach speeds of up to 18 mph
on flat ground, ride 50 miles in one day, and climb the steepest of hills (with
Trikke's design allows the rider to naturally engage his entire
body throughout the ride. Legs are active for balancing and shock-absorption and
arms punch for power-thrusts and hang on for stability and control. The Trikke 3-wheeler
allows you, the rider, to feel the miracle of your own body and mind working in
graceful unison. The bi-products of the ride are joy, health, fitness and a renewed
appreciation for yourself and your life.
How the Trikke works
Often mistaken as a simple scooter when seen for the first time,
the Trikke immediately sets itself apart from other wheeled sports when you see
a rider hop on and take the first few turns gracefully carving around without touching
the ground.Trikke's movement has the
rhythm of in-line skating, surfing, snowboarding, or skiing on pavement because
the entire vehicle leans in unison due to its finely coordinated (and patented)
cambering mechanism. Rhythmic weight transfer from one leg to another is the key
to propelling the Trikke forward. It's fun to ride and it feels great!
Trikke cambering vehicles allow a rider to utilize a fundamental
physics principle known as the Conservation of Angular Momentum. While traveling
on a slalom-like path, a rider moves his center of gravity (his mass) from left
to right (for example) while leaning the vehicle into a right turn; this movement
of the rider's mass is towards the center of the turn, thus decreasing the radius
of an imaginary circle which is formed around the center point of the rider's turn.
This movement of mass to the center of the circle acts in the same way that an ice-skaters
increase their velocity if they pull in their arms (decreasing the radius) while
spinning on the ice.
Because of the Trikke's design, a rider can learn to maximize
the velocity generated from making each turn and then transfer that momentum into
the next turn, and so on and so on. Propulsion can be so effortless that it feels
like magic, or as strenuous as a full-blown sprint. Your choice. Because of the
three-wheeled stance, the Trikke cambering scooter is extraordinarily stable. Dual
rear brakes in all models provide superb braking power. Independently controlled,
the brakes also allow for unusual lateral control for trick riding.
How to ride a Trikke
In the simplest of terms, yourock & rollto make a cambering
vehicle go. An experienced rider uses the entire body in a gracefully coordinated
motion that leans the vehicle into each turn and transfers the momentum of each
forward thrust into the next turn and the next. A trikke ride combines the utility
of human powered transportation with the thrill of carving deep surf and ski style
turns. Like in other carving sports, everyone develops their own unique, individual
riding style. Each ride becomes a personal expression session.
A myth relating to Trikke cambering vehicles is that the necessity
for carving creates a less than hospitable situation on crowded bike paths or boardwalks.
Quite the contrary. Because Trikke cambering vehicles is so unusually quick and
maneuverable, you can easily navigate the most crowded of environments with total
control. Unlike bicycles that have limited maneuverability and skateboards, blades,
or scooters that have little or no braking capability in sudden situations, cambering
vehicles can quickly dodge or brake.
Which model is best for me?
Take note that TRIKKE cambering vehicles come in several different configurations
to suit almost every rider's size and riding style. Trikke constantly refines and improves its vehicles' designs for maximum carving propulsion, ergonomics and performance. Trikke's standing, "active riding" platform can now be enjoyed by nearly everyone for a variety of purposes: fitness and weight loss, green transportation and mobility, or pure exhilaration. Family rides, Fitness, Transportation,
Freestyle and Tricks, Pro and Sport Racing. Wheel size, Frame size, and Weight capacity
are determining factors.
