Drift trikes are heavy-duty, big-wheel style trikes that have rotating wheels on the rear end. These trikes are a lot of fun for bigger kids who can control the main wheel better than smaller children. The pedals on the front of this trike are connected to a larger set wheel. The rear end swivels around behind your child as he or she rides. These trikes sit low to the ground. Consider if you are interested in a motor-powered trike which will make it go faster. Some drift trikes have a seat that can be adjusted for leg length; others do not. Check the trike’s brake setup to see if it comes with hand or pedal brakes. While these are fun for older kids and even teens, check the weight limits before purchase.
