JR Drift Trikes was founded by Joe Rackley (JR, get it?) With a long history of collecting and building custom bikes along with a lifetime passion for going sideways - 25 years’ skateboarding, 20 years’ snowboarding and countless hours “getting it sideways” in various rear wheel drive cars - it was only a matter of time before drift triking became the next obsession.
After teaming up with bike nut Mark Meadows (owner of MilkBikes and general human encyclopaedia of all things bike) the two formed the perfect partnership to bring drift triking to a whole new level.
Since first discovering drift triking on You Tube (like most people’s introduction to the sport), we wanted in! At the time, with only a handful of companies worldwide and no real UK brands we decided we had to make our own.
We wanted to bring this relatively cheap and extremely fun sport to the masses, so set about launching the JR Drift Trikes brand with this in mind. After knocking out a few different trike designs we soon realised there was a huge amount of unchartered territory and room for improvement and innovation on what was already out there. We weren’t satisfied with entering the market with a run-of-the-mill model, so proceeded to spend countless hours developing and testing until we felt we were ready to drop a bomb on the already rapidly-growing industry.
Now, over a year since we started on this journey we’ve put together the most complete, technically advanced, forward-thinking drift trike the world has ever seen.
Get ready for the future….
