Based on its patented articulating camber technology, the Trikke is designed for most groomed runs to fresh powder. It requires no bindings or special boots. The rider simply leans with the steering column and the three skis carve the turn. For those interested we recommend viewing the educational video before the use of the Trikke. Most beginners find it fun and exhilarating on the very first run.
Feel the control of skiing with handlebars. Feel the freedom of riding without bindings. Feel something really new and really fun!
To ride the Trikke users simply place one foot on the elongated foot bed, push off, and place the other in the opposing bed. The handlebars control the amount of turn and lean, and by steering left and right it causes all three skis to rise up on their edge. The frame articulates as well, allowing riders to camber or carve into any turn at while all three skis remain on the ground. Therefore, each leg will flex & extend independently, just like when carving a ski or snowboard. While the edging experience is very similar, there are a few major differences to traditional on-snow equipment: There are no bindings, the rider is not strapped in, and the vehicle is designed to encourage a sense of comfort while experiencing the thrill of gliding on the snow just as skiers and snowboarders.
