Slow motion videos capture the beauty of riding a Trikke

Riding a Trikke carving vehicle is a beautiful and wondrous thing. It gives you a feeling like no other, allowing your body to move in ways only previously attainable in ours dreams. The range of motion is astonishing—part skiing, part rollerskating, part surfing, part dancing.

But perhaps the best way to truly understand what goes on while riding a Trikke is to view others riding in slow motion, as is the case in the following three videos, two recorded in 2012 by Trikke carvers in Southern California, and another where Trikke inventor Gildo Beleski shows just how versatile an electric Trikke can be.  As you can see, riding a Trikke is quite the dance!

  1. We just got 2 T78s all air tires. We haven’t come even close to “getting it” on how to ride these things. We watched quite a few “how to” video clips and damn,.. trying to ride them is seeming just too hard! I don’t know if changing the back tires to the poly would help make the learning process any easier or not. I’m frustrated, but I’m not giving up!

  2. Beverly, it’s important you put air into the tires. 75-85 psi for better performance.
    Usually poly wheels are recommended for beginners. But start slowly on a flat surface and you’ll see progress. As any other wheeled vehicle, there’s a learning curve. Once you find the sweet spot it’s a great ride. It’s more about rhythm than strength.
