Tricycles for Adults

Posted by , under EQUIPMENT

I like dangerous stuff as much as anyone but this makes me anxious in the adventure bone.

But these guys have taken it to the limit. THE LIMIT, I TELL YOU.

Sure, real-life Mario Kart looks like fun, and is just what the doctor ordered if you’re trying to recapture your toddler youth, but I’m not sure I could get down with this.

Oh, and to the guy who was barefoot: NOPE.

Should I try it? Would you do it?

    As I live and breathe and sit here with a broken ankle from thinking I could take my kids ice skating…DON’T DO IT!!! And should you decide to show off and do it anyway (which would be understandable coz it looks totally fun) DON’T DO IT BAREFOOT!!!

  4. YES. It’s so low to the ground that your possibility of flipping would be minimal. I’d love to go for a cruise on one of these.

  5. Dude. I would do it. You should do it. But I think this looks more insane:

    BTW, The guy who shot the video in your post is based in Utah and has an insane YouTube channel.

  6. Folks, you really need to come out and ride with us! We’ve designed and been manufacturing the High Roller Adult Size big wheel drift trikes. They are an absolute blast! Here’s a bunch of videos:

    Absolutely not. Way to risky. I however am not an adventure junky. Life is an adventure on its own thank you very much. My husband of course thinks this looks like great fun and is up for it immediately. In terrified of the day my kid comes home wanting to try this or skateboarding. Yikes.

  9. Mimi says:

    I’d try them. Not pulled behind a car or even on the road, but maybe on the sidewalk with my son on his trike.

    Looks like fun, but as an RN on a hospital orthopedic floor, I can’t help but see patients instead of guys having fun. :)

  11. John King says:

    I may do it, but not on a public road like that. Just asking to go under a van or something.

    Hey guys, I wanted to share this one with you too that my husband just showed me. I was like, “wait a sec…I think I’ve seen this on HowToBeADad” haha. So here’s another one. You’ve probably seen it already. http://cyrilhuzeblog.com/2013/02/13/trike-drifting-in-taiwan-fun/

    But I watched the one you posted and I have to say as the wife of a guy who used to race motorcycles, dirt bikes, quads and was drag racing champ as well as someone who rides a motorcycle to and from work (my hubby, not me) every single day I’ve known him – I was so nervous watching these guys speeding downhill without helmets and NO SHOES!! OMG! Where were their wives to kick their asses after they wrapped their shoot? LOL! Too dangerous! My husband has crashed while racing or testing more than once and when you’ve seen a motorcycle helmet that belongs to the love of your life and it has huge chunks taken out of it due to a really bad crash that would have been fatal had it not been for the helmut, you forgo the stupid stuff sans protective gear. Call me a square. haha.

    Oh and btw, he also customizes bikes and has taught a few people that you’ve probably heard of how to ride (or “appear” to know how to ride) for various photo shoots, commercials, TV’s, movies. So let me know if you are ever in need of a professional motorcycle guy to teach a “How To Look Cool On A Bike” dude class.

    Sorry, I like to brag about him. lol. He’s kinda rad.
