The electric hub kit (with sealed lead acid batteries) can be fitted to any model 20" or 24" Tri-Rider. With the kit installed in the 24" Tri-Rider it can cruise at up to 15 mph depending upon wheel size and terrain. The larger wheels give a higher top speed capability while the smaller wheels have more hill climbing ability. You can pedal assist at any time and by pedal assisting the trike will have a longer range. The kits are available in 24V, 36V and 48V versions. The most popular operate at 36V with batteries of 12Ah or 14Ah. Most people find this to provide the best compromise between performance and weight. Depending upon conditions, speed, pedal assistance and battery size you can travel from 10-15 miles with the rechargeable battery pack. Some clients have ordered a second battery pack to double the range. The twist throttle has a built in battery strength indicator to help you judge the battery condition while riding. The included battery charger has a light indicator to let you know when it is fully recharged. Recharging the battery pack usually takes several hours depending upon how drained they became. Street legal in most jurisdictions. For battery power the switch must be on and the twist throttle opened. For exercise the rider can pedal at any time whether you are using the electric motor or not.
The Comfort trikes pedals are more forward than the regular Tri-Rider which allows the seat height to be lower. The seat position allows for a lower center of gravity making it not only more comfortable but safer as well. The handlebars on the comfort trike are also positioned with comfort in mind and have a 14" rise. The handlebars can be adjusted up and down, and can be rotated and the stem can be reversed
