What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

MOTORIZED DRIFT - TRICYCLE | ADAPT THE NEW WAY TO DRIVE

Ever want to drift like Ken Block, but you haven’t got the cash / or the skills? Not a problem! 

The Drift-Tricycle is here! Whether on a small parking-lot or in your own back yard, the Drift-Tricycle offers anybody the possibility of drifting with ease.

Due to the low sitting position and the powerful four-stroke engine with semi-automatic 4-speed transmission, drifting becomes effortless! 

The Drift-Tricycle is equipped with an electric self-starter and an alternator, which charges the batteries permanently, making recharging unnecessary after a fun day out. Additionally, the installed ignition lock prevents unauthorized use.

After a few drawbacks, we have managed to optimize the Drift-Tricycle, to now meeting our expectations. 

Our main requirements for the construction of the Drift-Tricycle were and are: Easy handling, a low demand of maintenance and most importantly, convenient transportation.

Nothing is more annoying than having to transport a vehicle with a trailer.

 The Drift-Tricycle can be comfortably fitted into an estate car by dismounting the two back tires and folding back the handle bars. Moreover, if necessary the axle can be taken off within 5 minute, as it is only fixed with 4 bolts.

Now we would like to share!

However, due to the low number of orders/requests, the production is momentarily not economical. In order to make this project feasible, we need to invest into special welding equipment. 

In order to keep the price of the Drift-Tricycle within our target range, we need to order greater amounts of starting material from our local supplier. 

If this project is funded, we will be able to create an employment positions for the batch production of the frame work, herby ensuring a high quality product to an excellent price.

The whole tricycle is designed and will be produced in germany with highest standards.

Risks and challenges

We have worked hard during the last months organizing our business, developing the design and setting up the production. As of today we have solved the initial problems concerning the substance and the right tooling equipment for building the Drift-Tricycles

However, there are always some issues when a business is growing and you can never be safe that evertything works as intended. We currently plan to start shipping in March/April have a little margin in case of unscheduled Problems.
