Riders gather momentum through gravity, although some drift trikes have pedals.
Pedals are useful for slow speed riding, but are of no use at high speed. Drift trikes can reach speeds of up to 90km/h, but the normal operating speed is between 25 and 65km/h.
A drift trike consists of a tricycle with a pneumatic front wheel. The front wheel can have a freewheeling crank or foot pegs
