Trike

A pledge of US$1,560 will put you in line for a Verrado, with Local Motors hoping to begin...

Since originating in New Zealand in 2009, the sport of trike drifting has slowly but surely spread to hilly regions all around the globe. From the United States to Puerto Rico, adrenaline junkies are mounting customized three-wheeled machines to drift and spin their way along switchbacks and steep downhill descents. Now, Arizona-based Local Motors has developed an electric-powered drift trike dubbed Verrado, which aims to extend this form of recreation to residents in flatter parts of the globe.  Read More

The Horizon can be pedaled with the hands or feet or driven solely by electric motor power

For the past few years, Outrider has been earning praise and breaking records with its pedal-assisted electric trikes, but its latest design is gearing up to be its most rewarding endeavor yet. The Horizon is a modular adaptive trike designed to get paraplegics, quadriplegics and others with disabilities wheeling over pavement and dirt. Outrider's goal is to develop a production trike that can be pedaled with the legs or hands or powered entirely with an electric hub motor.  Read More

The design of the Rungu was inspired by trying to transport surfboards across the sand

With their huge, soft tires that allow them to "float" over snow and sand, fatbikes have experienced a surge in popularity over the past few years. Last December, British adventurer Maria Leijerstam took things a step further, using a custom fat trike to ride to the South Pole. Now, California-based Standard Bearer Machines is offering a fat-trike of its own, known as the Rungu.  Read More

The team behind the bicymple may have simplified the humble bicycle with their minimalist design, but Mihail Klenov and Martin Angelov have gone even further with their aptly-named Halfbike. Aimed at inner-city individuals in need of something to go distances of 5 km (3 mi) or less, they've created a compact three wheeler that ditches the traditional seat and handlebars.  Read More

The Odyssey electric trike from Milwaukee-based inventors Dustin Herte and Ryan Bass

The top motor-only speed of an electric bike can be limited by law to 20 mph (32 km/h), but those taking their rides off-road or to the streets of more lenient jurisdictions may push their vehicles that little bit further. Looking to allow even more scope for performance are Milwaukee-based inventors Dustin Herte and Ryan Bass, whose Odyssey electric trike, fitted with a 4 kW motor, can reach speeds of up to 50 mph (80 km/h).  Read More

Maria Leijerstam is in the midst of attempting a trip to the South Pole on a custom-built ...

Last winter, polar explorer Eric Larsen attempted to become the first person to cycle to the South Pole. Continually stymied by deep, unrideable snow, Larsen fell behind schedule and was forced to abandon the attempt. This year, several others are taking up the challenge. Thirty-five year-old British adventurer Maria Leijerstam is hoping the ticket to success is a fat-tired recumbent trike built to task.  Read More

The DiamondBack leans into turns, thanks to a unique pneumatic system

There's nothing quite like leaning into a turn on a motorcycle. That said, there's also nothing quite like wiping out on one. For people who like the former but are wary of the latter, leaning trikes were invented. One of the latest to catch our attention is the snazzy-looking DiamondBack, which may hopefully soon be entering production.  Read More

Double the battery, double the range

In addition to a new off-road model, German trike manufacturer HP Velotechnik plans to launch a new dual-battery option on its entire e-trike line next month. Double the battery will mean double the range.  Read More

The Noomad with hard trolley

The Noomad, from Spanish outfit Polo De Innovacion Garaia, is designed to transform a traditional bicycle into a stable, three-wheeled workhorse equipped for hauling groceries, luggage, babies and more. The Noomad is essentially a simple metal panel connected to dual 18- or 20-inch wheels that swap in for your front bicycle wheel. To ensure a nimbler ride, the Noomad's wheels are connected to a tilting system that allows the rider to lean through corners.  Read More

The Electromobile City Scooter demonstrator vehicle, on display in Hannover

While electric scooters are considerably cheaper and easier to park than electric cars, many people are still put off by the idea of having to balance on two wheels. Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering is addressing that problem, with its leaning three-wheeled Electromobile City Scooter.  Read More
