1 Try-Cycle lets you ride on three wheels to a green world on Mon Sep 13, 2010 10:21 am
If even numbers, two and four, fail to be your lucky numbers, then why don’t you try you luck at the oddy three? Ah, a nasty line to introduce the new Try-cycle concept of individual transportation. Focusing on this three wheeler only, it seems to deliver a skewed kinda riding experience…..at least for those who aren’t comfortable with such a system. It is designed to displace the front wheel to incline the vehicle for changing direction, provoking new experiences of displacement. It is rightly said that this Try-cycle is ideal for anyone who expects new emotions on wheels! From what I understand, the user needs to be a pro at the act of balancing.
It’s as simple as a normal tri-cycle when you want to steer straight. But when you gotto change the direction, you need to press the button of turn control. This will modify the position of the arm that joins the steady wheel with the auxiliary wheel, displacing this one forward.
It’s at this point that you need to exercise your poise as the movement changes the support point in to the ground. Also you can be in command of the incline as it all depends on the button.
However I was just wondering as to why Humberto Jimenez, the industrial designer of this Try-cycle has termed it as ‘A friendly vehicle for friendly people’. I can only understand that its eco-friendly!
