PITCH: Leaux Racing Trikes
About the Company: The Leaux Racing Trike is new spin (pun intended) on an old favorite. With three wheels and a reclined seat, it's the classic tricycle platform, but the rear caster wheels and steering handle make it anything but ordinary. With just a flick of the handle the rider can take tight corners, drift, and even spin 360 degrees!
Leaux Trikes started out as a crowdfunding project when Tyler Hadzicki was just 17 years old. After raising almost $50,000 to produce the first units, it became a full fledged business. Leaux Trikes is on Sharktank with the hopes of bringing the trikes to a wide audience and raising capital to produce more inventory.
