What is a Trikke?

The Trikke is an innovative three-wheeled vehicle that takes the best of the popular vehicles of today and combines them into a completely new machine in form, function, and riding experience. The patented technology makes it possible for a rider to propel the Trikke forward without pushing or pedaling… just rock and roll!

How is it different?
Often mistaken as a scooter when seen for the first time, the Trikke immediately sets itself apart when a rider hops on and takes the first few turns. People often ask “What makes it move?”, “Where are the batteries?” 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!

“It’s like skiing or skating.
It’s great exercise. It gives
you a workout all the way
from your ankles up to your
shoulders and there’s no
jarring to your joints.”
Jimmy Carter

The Trikke was named “One of the coolest inventions of the year”
Time Magazine.

Trikke Carving Vehicle’s are available steel as high end aluminum and model’s. The Aluminum Models are The T12 Roadster, The Trikke Snow Skki, The all new T8 Sport, and the all new line of Hybrid electrics such as the T8H 36 Volt and 48 Volt Lithium powered. Your Steel options are the full T78 line up, The T67S and the T5WS. Plenty of options and price points for the whole family.

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-skater increases her velocity if she pulls in her arms (decreasing her radius) while she is spinning on the ice.

Because of the vehicle’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. Propulsion can be so effortless that it feels like magic, or as strenuous as a full-blown sprint. The choice is yours. change your life forever.
