What is a drift trike and drift triking?

Drift trikes are tricycles that have slick rear wheels, normally made from a hard plastic, often PVC...

Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control from entry to exit of a corner.

Drift Triking origins from small tricycles made for kids, but it wasn't long till some guys from New Zealand decided to strengthen the frame, put some sliding wheels into the back and started to drift while bombing hills.

From about 2009 the sport is gaining on popularity and spreads viral across the globe. YouTube has a lot to do with this.

Riders enjoy the controlled drifts while ridding down the hills and the freedom that comes with it.

Feeling during controlled drifts is what all the trikers are yearning for.
