Drift trikes are otherwise known as tricycles that have big rear wheels made for sliding or otherwise known as slicks, and are usually made from plastic (PVC). They are built intentionally to have a loss of grip on the back wheels, to enable counter steering round corners. Riders often like to experience the same slides down hills and steep turns like those longboarders enjoy.
