Commuting and Running Errands
Choose the Trikke EV because it is so sensible and efficient; keep using it every day because it's so fun.
It is uniquely stable and maneuverable so you can confidently flow past slower traffic or obstacles, and it's easy to park right at your destination (with no parking fees). You will avoid wrinkling or getting grease on your clothes thanks to Trikke's standing riding position. Carve side to side for Trikke's exhilarating skier's feeling, and get an enjoyable, low-impact workout on your way - and let the breeze keep you cool.
You'll wonder why so many commuters still insist on dragging 4000 to 6000 unnecessary lbs around with them to get from here to there - getting stuck in traffic and fighting for parking spaces (...so yesterday when there are solutions like Trikke EV today!). Plus, you will be saving thousands of dollars that otherwise would have been spent on gas, maintenance, insurance and parking.
We hear it over and over again: "This is like a magic carpet; I don’t want to get off!"
Hours can be easily spent zipping around on the Trikke EV - for the pure enjoyment of the ride. Our Austrian partners have coined a new word for the sensation: "spazierschweben" which basically translates into "walking-floating." Add to that top speeds of up to 17mph, and the ability to perform stable, carving turns at all speeds and you have an incredibly satisfying and unique experience that you will not easily duplicate or forget.
Hop on a Trikke EV because of its efficiency, and come home with the thrill of an adventure.
You'll be praising the pavement gods for filling your world with perfect "groomers" that can be carved and slalomed with abandon. Little side trails will beg to be explored. You will see things that you have never seen in your own town thanks to being up higher on Trikke's raised foot platforms, and just being out in the open air floating along at whatever speed you find appropriate.
And... this is an adventuring machine that can easily be tossed into the back of a car, bus, train, etc to adventure further and further. Please - share your adventures with us!
And yes, the low-impact fitness benefits from the Trikke EV are true. If you are not adept at propelling Trikke carving vehicles yet, not to worry. With the twist of the throttle you are up and rolling, and to engage your lower body you simply turn - getting into a nice rhythm - like a skier. Your legs will bend and extend naturally as your weight moves from side to side. If you want to engage your upper body, you must learn to drive the vehicle forward by punching the outside handlebar through each turn (only while using very little or no electric power, or while climbing steepish hills). If it is fitness you are after, you can find it on the Trikke EV, all while having a really fun time, and while you're getting somewhere. Great for multi-taskers.
