Austin Trikke Services – Training and Sales

Training

With its stable tripod stance, the Trikke isn’t hard to get used to. It’s stable enough, though, for some riders to get overconfident and possibly get into trouble. Austin Trikke offers a full range of Trikke  Training, from basic movement to advanced techniques (including uphill climbing). We can also help you in deciding which Trikke Product is the right fit for you.

We generally break training down into a few different steps:

Level 1: Orientation

We’ll discuss safety issues and get you up to speed on the basics of how the Trikke moves and builds momentum.  We can spot the common problems that beginners usually run across, and help you correct them so you won’t have to unlearn any bad habits down the line (or get frustrated and just quit).

Level 2: Intermediate

This is where we refine your basic Trikke skills and start to look into other techniques to help improve your skills.  We have several Trikke “asanas” that can help improve your form and advance your skills and riding experience.  You’ll learn how to deal with situations that might come up once you’re out on the open road or trails, and we can repeat this class as many times as needed until you’re feeling safe and comfortable with the techniques we cover.

Level 3: Advanced

Now we’ll work on advanced “asanas” and you’ll get some experience with Trikke hill climbing and acceleration.  You’ll get sharper skills and keener instincts on the Trikke and get better with the fluid motion that’s at the core of Trikke technique.  Remember the phrase “Preservation of Angular Motion” – it’s very important!

The Trikke’s carving action comes intuitively for some people, but for others it takes a little getting used to.  Trikke dealers will about always have a couple of certified trainers on staff, and can help you get up to speed on your Trikke skills with a training session or two.  There’s also a safety issue, like with any vehicle; part of your training will also discuss that end of things.  At the very least, most Trikke dealers recommend basic safety equipment for all riders. Contract your Austin Trikke Dealer  at knguyen@bcs-ip.com, or (512) 695-2576. for more information on purchasing a Trikke Product.

About Us

Austin Trikke About Us

We started Austin Trikke with a vision for getting Austinites behind a new, fun idea. Trikkes are more than a somewhat odd-looking way to get around. They’re a great (fun!) way to get some exercise without your knees, ankles and hips taking a beating. They’re an ingenious feat of engineering. They’re a good way to take a car off the road, a car that you’d otherwise be using to get from A to B. And…they’re just plain exhilarating fun.

The Trikke is about the width of a downtown sidewalk, but it’s also a good fit for bike lanes on Austin streets. It comes in a number of different models, for riders of all ages, sizes and all skill levels. It’s lightweight, flexible, foldable (for storage) and fun. Imagine getting a good workout while you’re rolling at about 15 mph or so, and you’ve got an idea of the Trikke Lifestyle.

Austin Trikke’s Owner

Khang Nguyen saw his first Trikke several years ago and it immediately spiked his imagination. He saw the potential of the Trikke not only as a way to get around, but a way to keep fit and burn calories. As a physically-oriented guy himself, Khang saw how the Trikke had distinct advantages over skateboards, bicycles or scooters and felt compelled to get trained on one (“there’s a little more to it than you might think”).

Khang now owns several Trikkes and has started his young niece on one too (although she rides the Electric Hybrid model). “I hate driving,” Khang remarks. “I drive all the time for work, from one town to the next…if I need to go to the store or Wal-Mart and don’t want to drive, I take my Trikke.”

Austin Trikke Tips

1. Do wear a helmet. Even if you feel a little ridiculous, it’s better than a concussion.
2. Remember that a right turn means shifting your weight to your left foot, and vice versa.
This is one of the trickiest things for new riders to get used to.
3. Keep the handlebars parallel to your shoulders. When you’re first starting out, keep the handlebars low.
4. Don’t move the entire steering column to the left and right – turn only the handlebars.
5. Relax! Don’t be too stiff or inflexible on the Trikke. The motion needs to be fluid and almost intuitive.
6. Don’t pull back on the handlebars unless you’re also applying the brakes. This can land you flat on your back.
7. Don’t jerk forwards and backwards to try to get forward momentum.
8. Keep your body straight and relaxed. Don’t lean back or crouch forward on the Trikke.
9. If you’re having trouble getting momentum, kick with one foot as a push-off,
    but keep turning the handlebars right and left using your shoulders and upper body.
10. Don’t give up! For a lot of people, it takes a little while to get a mastery of riding the Trikke. Once you do, though, you’ll be fine.


 

Austin Trikke FAQ

1. How can I tell which model would be a good fit?
Answer: Talk to your Trikke dealer about your expectations, your fitness level and the type of riding you’re going to be doing, then come on down and try one out firsthand.

2. Can you climb hills on a Trikke?
Answer: But it does take training and practice. Keeping the forward momentum takes timing and technique. Watch the videos, then try it yourself and you’ll soon find out.

3. What kind of workout does the Trikke give you?
Answer: It’s no impact, just a lot of muscle and joint work, especially for the core and legs. It’s also a great way to burn calories and lose weight!

4. Is the Trikke safer than roller blades or skateboards?
Answer: Think about the balance issues of a skateboard, and the fact that you don’t have brakes…or the two-point stance of roller blades (and wheels strapped to your feet). The Trikke Technology has a three-point tripod stance that doesn’t even requite much balance, as well as hand brakes for the rear wheels.

5. Should I choose a Trikke over a bike?
Answer: Well, that’s your call. We’ll just say, though, that your butt will thank you if you go with a Trikke.

6. What maintenance is required?
Answer: There’s not much maintenance at all. Check the pressure in the tires and top them off as needed. There are also a couple of points on the Trikke that require periodic lubrication.

7. What is the warranty like?
Answer: Trikke models come with a 12 month warranty against manufacturer defects. Remember that modifying the Trikke will null the warranty.

8. How safe is the Trikke?
Answer: Any Trikke Product can be unsafe if you are reckless or aren’t careful. Know your limitations, wear a helmet, read the owner’s manual and get yourself trained before you get too far along on one.

9. Is the Trikke a good cardio workout?
Answer: It all depends on how hard you want to work it. and the lifestyle in which you use your Trikke. A moderate pace on the Trikke can get your cardiopulmonary system up to a safe level of exertion.

10. Are the rubber tires or solid polyurethane wheels better for a beginner?
Answer: That’s a subjective question that will depend on what kind of surface you’re going to ride on, how determined you are to move forward and what you’re expecting out of the Trikke Lifestyle.

What is a Trikke?

Trikke Inc. develops, manufactures and distributes lightweight personal transport devices called a Trikke. Trikke can be used for a variety of applications from casual recreation to endurance training.

Trikke Technology

Owner/Inventor:

Back in the late 80s, Brazilians Gildo Beleski and Osorio Trentini were sick of skateboards, bicycles and scooters. They were determined to create a body-powered three-wheeled downhill machine, with the stability of a tripod stance and a frame flexible enough for the rider to lean (or camber) into turns. They soon found out that leaning back and forth, to one side and then to the other, was enough to keep the Trikke’s momentum going, even on flat ground.

Trikke Tech Inc.

Company:

Over the years, the Trikke was tweaked and modified with ideas like inflatable tires, disk brakes, folding aluminum alloy frames and varying sizes and configurations. By 2002, TIME Magazine had named the Trikke one of the best new inventions of the year. In 2006, the Trikke SKKI was introduced and was soon a hit with snow-sports enthusiasts. Then by 2009, the Trikke Electric Hybrid was introduced, with a brushless electric motor on the front wheel for speeds up to 17 mph allowing riders to travel in cities and rural area with ease. The Trikke offers freedom of mobility to its riders in all facets of lifestyles.
