For those that want something new than racing bikes, an athletic tricycle is the perfect fix. The tricycle works very differently than the ordinary trike as it's forward facing, light and controlled by very strange means.

Using tricycles for sport is not new but in Europe there is quite a big race that involves them. The competition happens every two years between schools and sees teams rolling out different trikes.

The trike is made out of lightweight carbon and features mounted knee pads to keep weight evenly distributed. The athletic tricycle is powered by a 14v screwdriver and can reach speeds of up to 30 km/h which given the fact that it's a tricycle is quite fast. This trike gives users a completely fresh experience in competitive racing.
