Product Overview

TRIKKE Carving Vehicle T78 Convertible

TRIKKE T78 Convertible
No Pedaling, No Pushing... Just Rock n'Roll!


AllegroMedical.com presents the TRIKKE T78 Convertible Carving Vehicle. The TRIKKE™ T78 Convertible is so named because of the combination of both polyurethane wheels and aluminum rims with high pressure pneumatic tires on the same steel frame. This is the new mid-teen to adult ride for comfort and deep carving fun. 7" Polyurethane wheels on the rear are generally better to learn on, so if you are more or less a beginner, this is a great place to start. The 8" Air tire on the front means improved traction and a sticky-er and smoother feel while carving. Once you've mastered the carving and you want to expand your riding to rougher pavement, just order up a pair of 8" air wheels and swap them out! 7" poly, 8" poly and 8" air tires can be mounted on the TRIKKE™ T78.

The strong steel frame provides the durability for park and trick riding. Suggested Weight Limit 250lbs

What's a TRIKKE™ (pronounced trike with long i)
or a Cambering Vehicle?

Trikke three-wheeled cambering vehicles are human powered machines that utilize Trikke Tech’s 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 practice!).

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 it works

Often mistaken as a 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. "What makes it move?" and "Where are the Batteries?" are usually the first words to come out of a first timer viewer's mouth. 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-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 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 vehicle is extraordinarily stable. Dual rear brakes provide superb braking power. Independently controlled, the brakes also allow for unusual lateral control for trick riding.

How to ride

In the simplest of terms, you rock & roll to 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. Many a collision has been avoided by TRIKKE™ riders on the densest boardwalk on earth --- Venice Beach, CA. Cambering vehicles blend harmoniously with the masses.

Great Product at the SET price

Pros:
Quick on smooth pavement. Handles Well. Durable. Lightweight.
Cons:
Rougher than all air.
Best Uses:
Trail riding. Exercise. Fun.
Describe Yourself:
Casual/ Recreational.

I agree with Bob from Atlanta, Great Product, though if you want a smoother ride for pavement that is not that smooth, consider an all air tire model, like the T8 Air... The price is actually set by Trikke Tech, so you should not see any amount cheaper somewhere else where AllegoMedical would have to match it like the guarantee says - It is not really a savings over a list price at all (that part is misleading), but it is a decent set price for as much as you will likely use the product once you get the hang of carving and get addicted!

Big fun

Pros:
Handles Well. Durable. Lightweight. Smooth Ride. Stable. Good Value.
Best Uses:
First Learning.
Describe Yourself:
Casual/ Recreational. Exercise.

This is the first time I can say that I look forward to exercise and work to find time to do it. Trikke riding is challenging and lots of fun. There are a number of videos on YouTube to provide helpful tips to get started, and the Trikke itself comes with an excellent video instruction manual. Highly recommended!

Answer:
Yes but with only with the good foot and you would be going in circles. Torn tendons require medical attention, and rest until it repairs itself. You asked on July, six months ago so if you are now healed, you should be enjoying a Trikke right now. The Trikk-e (with battery power) is a Trikke where carving is optional, so the answer is YES!
