This question already has an answer here:

Suppose I'd attach N flash-sticks to an USB-hub and configure them using soft-RAID level 0 [striping].

Is this configuration likely to provide better throughput than a single flash-stick?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

My guess (if it was even possible) is that it would be slower. The OS (or whatever) is doing the striping would need to break a single write into multiple ones. Because of communication overhead and the hub design of USB I think it would be slower.
