Q: What is a carving trike™ cambering vehicle ?
A: “Carving” means to curve. A carving trike™ cambering vehicle is a three-wheeled vehicle that uses “carving” to move forward. Carving trike™ cambering vehicle uses curved motion to convert body height into angular momentum. The rider leans to the inside of the turn and the vehicle travels in sinusoidal path. It can reach a speed of 15 mph.
It has been almost a century since the first cambering vehicle US patent was registered. With spreading of scooters in recent years, this century old sport revived. It is a great fitness and entertaining device for both children and adults.
Q: What is the difference between polyurethane and air-tire wheels?
A: Polyurethane tires are easier for beginners to learn cambering skills.
Air-tire wheels are safer on wet surface. They can last much longer. Air-tire wheels can also be used for relatively rough surfaces. It requires more skills and a lot more efforts. Air-tire wheels can absorb shocks and make rider's hands and shoulders more comfortable.
For beginners, it's easier to ride on smooth ground and should use polyurethane tires. After you learn the cambering skills, and want to get more exercises, you can replace the polyurethane tires with air-tire wheels.
Q: How to ride a carving trike™ cambering vehicle?
A: Firstly, It is especially important to establish a good riding posture that properly balances your weight between the front and rear wheels. The steering column is adjustable to allow you to arrive at a comfortable riding posture. It will greatly help you to maneuver the “cambering” and maintain the balance and stability of the vehicle. We recommend you push off like you would ride on a scooter and simply ride it around for a few minutes to get used to the feel and ride. Then, you should turn this initial motion into a curved one, be sure to tilt the trike accordingly, and lean you body to the inside of the turn. Lean to the left and right alternatively, and it will travel in sinusoidal path.
Don’t make sharp turns, manage the turn smoothly. Like any other sports, it takes some time to get good at it, so be patient. Usually, it will take about (15-30) minutes and you will begin to pickup speed but will peak at only a few miles an hour.
Actually, after you become good at it, you can start moving without touching your feet to the ground to gain an initial speed. You may refer to our online Owner’s Manual for more details.
