Infento Rides Provides Kids With Transformable Transportation To Assemble As They Grow

child-with-father

You buy your kid a tricycle, only to realize a couple years later that he’s outgrown the thing and now needs a small bike. Fast forward a couple more years, and the same thing happens again. It’s normal, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Infento Rides offers a completely different approach to this reality: completely reconfigurable and transformable rides that your kids can assemble themselves as they outgrow their current model. Think of it like a Meccano set that your offspring, ages 0-13, gets to ride. “With just a hex key and a couple of hours, an adult and child can make a sledge, a recumbent bike, a trike with a cargo box, and more.” Unlike other similar offerings, Infento provides your child with a huge assortment of builds ranging in assemblage complexity from a few minutes up to six hours. It’s a great activity to do with your kid, and it’ll teach him valuable skills in the process. Prices start at $299, and go up to $599 for the Master Creator Kit, with which you can make up to 11 different rides; this works out to around $55 per ride, so as expensive as it is, you’re still getting plenty of value.

If Drifting Is Your Thing, The Verrado Trike Will Blow You Away

drift-trike

When it comes to wheeled vehicles it’s easy to become obsessed with acceleration and power figures. But at the end of the day the important thing is how much fun you’re having while driving. To that end, the Verrado Electric Drift Trike by Local Motors might have a thing or two on its four-wheeled cousins, the cars. You might have heard of downhill drift tricking already, but this drift trike trades gravity assistance for an electric engine. Gone are the days where you have to ask your buddy with a pickup truck to haul you back up the hill. This vehicle “combines a BMX fork with a 20” heavy duty front wheel featuring an aluminum casting around the brushless hub motors, two rear karting wheels lined with PVC pipe, a strong disc brake and a powerful programmable electric motor.” A 3 hour charge will give you 45 minutes of fun or up to 12 miles of travel if all you end up doing is going in a straight line. But let’s face it, if you’re going to pledge $1,560 for one of these, you’re really looking to be going sideways around a track, and that’s more than ok.
