Leaux Trike's on Shark Tank

appearing on the
Shark Tank Show this Friday night
The entrepreneur who invented this radical new design for Leaux Racing Trike's is Tyler Hadzicki, who'll be appearing with his dad Joe Hadzicki on the next Shark Tank Show. While Tyler was only 19 years old when he pitched to the Sharks earlier this year, He was only 16 years old when first envisioning this brand new (and fun) form of new transportation. Having a great idea for a new product is one thing, but building a functioning prototype from scratch is quite the other.
Fortunately, Tyler had a secret weapon when it comes to taking some of his ideas at an early age and making them a reality, His dad Joe who's been an engineer and entrepreneur for over 30 years. The Hadzicki's are the owners of the RevKites.com Quad-line Revolution Kites that fly's more like a helicopter than a kite. Joe's re-invention of how kites fly is "almost" as impressive as Tyler's reinvention of the three-wheeled trikes.
Tyler and Joe took the Leaux Racing Trikes to Kickstarter and successfully raised over $46,000.00 on May 5, 2015. At that time, the tricycle was named ONDA Cycle during the campaign, and to be honest, I couldn't figure out what the heck "ONDA" meant. Fortunately, I happened to ask my youngest son to watch that video and get his opinion about the Leaux Racing Trikes. Without hesitation when looking at the campaign name he said, "On-Da-Cycle. that's a cool name". I still didn't get it.
Leaux Racing Trike's Reviews before Shark Tank Episode 714One of the best ways learning about entrepreneurs after they've successfully raised funds for a new project is the comment section on the crowdfunding page. In Leaux Racing Trike's (Onda Cycle) case, Tyler did an exceptional job answering questions and keeping everyone up-to-date with the manufacturing process.
The Leaux Racing Trike's are available on the site for only $350.00 each and available in the colors black, blue and red. The site is a little basic and could sure use a few more videos showing all the tricks the Leaux Racing Trike's are capable of pulling off. The main thing is if the site can handle all the traffic the Shark Tank Effect will bring its way this Friday night. As far as Leaux Trike's getting a deal on the Shark Tank Show, well there's one piece of the puzzle missing as evidenced on their FaceBook page. It doesn't mean a deal wasn't done during of the taping of the Shark Tank, but it suggests (at least to me) that Leaux Racing Trike's didn't complete a deal with the Sharks.
Congratulations Tyler, deal or no deal you're certainly headed down the right path!
