Product Description

Amazon.com

Combining the look of a scooter with the feel of a skateboard or snowboard, the Trikke T8 Air three-wheel cambering vehicle offers a whole new way of propelling yourself on wheels.


The T8 Air propels forward as the rider leans into turns.
The T8 Air--Trikke's most popular model--is equipped with the company's patented 3CV technology, which provides a stable three-point platform for the rider. To go forward, simply lean (or carve) into the turn as you would on a bike or snowboard. The entire T8 Air will lean with you, creating enough momentum to cruise around the campsite, neighborhood, or pretty much anywhere else. Not only is it a blast, but it's also a great workout, too, keeping your legs and arms active with every movement.

The T8 Air's most distinguishing features are its air-filled tires, which are ideal for climbing hills or traveling over varied terrain. The tires provide improved traction to create a stickier, smoother feel while carving. The T8 Air offers a number of other high-quality features as well, including an aircraft-grade aluminum frame, independent rear brakes, and a height-adjustable handlebar. And when you've reached your destination, the T8 Air folds up for easy storage.

Specifications:

  • Weight limit: 250 pounds
  • Suggested height range: 5 feet 3 inches to 6 feet 5 inches
  • Recommended ages: 12-plus
  • Frame: 6061 T6 aluminum
  • Folding mechanism: Pull-twist lock pin on arm
  • Tire size: 8.5 x 2 inches
  • Wheel bearings: Abec5
  • Brake system: Dual rear independent, cable
  • Weight: 22 pounds
  • Warranty: 12 months, limited

Update : You can buy this Trikke at Costco now for around $269.....

The T8 is my second Trikke. I purchased a T78 back in September and I am totally hooked on Trikking. I am retired and ride my T78 about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours a day. It is an all body workout and is fun. There is a learning curve, but once you get past that you can really move on the Trikke. I have lost over 13 pounds since I started Trikking. It will do up to 17 mph on flat terrain and really fly down hills.

The T8 is the Top of the line Trikke in it's size category, which will work for someone up to 6'5" and 250 pounds. It folds up in a few seconds, weighs 20 pounds, and you can put it in your car trunk, carry it with you, and store it in the corner of a room standing on end when folded. The ride is great, and it handles like a sports car. If you want something that is fun, and to get in shape for the rest of your life, the Trikke will do it for you. You will actually become addicted to riding it.

Lately there have been reports on one of the forums of welds failing on both the T78 and T8 models where the leg attaches to the Trikke. The result could be an injury when this happens, so you should always check your Trikke before every ride. There have also been many reports of brand new Trikkes that have loose bearings in the steering column which require compressing the column even on a brand new Trikke, prior to riding it. If you are not mechanically inclined, this could be aggravating. I purchased a tool from one of the dealers to compress the column properly.

I got one of these for my birthday, two days ago. I have been out practicing on it for short intervals throughout the weekend. It has got easier, and I occasionally get into a rhythm with it and I just go. I know that soon I will become more naturalized with the trikke, and that rhythm will become second nature. I am really pleased with it.

I've had a Trikke 8 for about 4 years. I bought the T-8 when it was called the Convertible (it came with the hard plastic wheels but could be fitted with the inflatable tires it now comes standard with). After about a month I decided to buy the inflatable wheels--best thing I could have done. The Trikke does have a learning curve. At first I could not climb our driveway that barely had an incline. After a few months I finally figured out how to navigate a pretty decent slope. It was almost like a switch came on in my brain and it just worked.

I can't say that the Trikke offers the best full body workout that you can get, but it has got to be pretty close. I really don't know a single part of the body that isn't used. I can even target the upper body workout by changing the height of the handle bars. Once you get the hang of this thing you find yourself in a rhythm that is similar to skiing the slalom. The inflatable tires grip so well that you can really carve without the fear of a crash.

The Trikke is not the perfect vehicle for every location. It's really the most fun on relatively flat surfaces with little wind in the face. It also require a bit more lateral room than a bike does (tough to use on tight roadways without designated bike paths). I will actually wait until the afternoon winds die down and ride in the evenings on occasion. Early morning rides are also great--the workout will fuel you throughout the day. I went out and bought a Garmin GPS/Heart Rate monitor so I could maintain a good level of fat burning. It's easy...but I always want to go faster and faster.

The only drawback to the Trikke is that your riding will constantly be interrupted by curious strangers who want to know more about the crazy looking device.

This was my second Trikke. We also have a T78. I bought this on the recommendation of a trainer who pointed out that although the frame sizes are very similar, the T8 allows more room for movement when the handlebars are raised to the proper height for someone like myself. I'm about 5'10" and I usually ride the T8 and my wife who is 5'4" rides the T78 although sometimes we switch for a little variety. Although the two Trikkes are very similar, there is a definite step up in the design and construction of the T8 which justifies the price difference.

I have been looking for a low impact way to exercise. I am not a lover of riding a bike as it ends up hurting my back and neck from bending for so long, and I am scared of my knees getting shot from jogging. While looking on the web for different human powered vehicles (eg. recumbent bike) I ran into a video of this Trikke and at first it looked like just a big scooter, but then I noticed they never touched the ground. It was fascinating, so I did more research. It certainly has a strong following, as almost everyone that buys it loves it and uses it A LOT.

When it arrived I opened the box and have to be honest, was not expecting the quality of both product and packaging I found. Fantastic. Easy assembly, filled up the tires and I was off. Its not a natural motion and takes a lot of getting used to, but you literally become addicted to the feeling you get when it all goes right. I can see myself using this as my main exercise outlet. Its an entire body workout and I was huffing just going down my street.

I would recommend this to anyone with an ounce of coordination that wants a fun way to get in (or stay in) shape. It really is too much fun to even notice you are exercising. Go to the website which is www trike dot com and check out the videos etc. Have fun.
