E-TrikeKit™ Adult Tricycle Conversion Kit
with Heavy-Duty (Low Speed / High Torque) 500w Direct-Drive Hub Motor
The E-TrikeKit electric tricycle conversion kit without battery pack is specifically made with increased pulling power for heavier adult tricycles. The direct-drive hub motor is designed to deliver more low-end torque and a lower top speed; important for safety on a 3-wheeler. This kit without battery gives you the option of supplying your own 36 or 48 volt battery pack. The E-TrikeKit is also available in a single rear wheel by request for special applications; supplies are limited.
Who's it for? This kit is built specifically for upright adult tricycles. The heavy-duty direct-drive motor is designed for increased torque and a lower top speed. This kit also has speed-limited reverse (30% of forward top speed).
The E-TrikeKit™ is designed specifically for adult tricycles.
Upgraded in 2015 to include our LCD dashboard display, 36v/48v 12FET controller, speed-limited reverse function, and locking e-brake handles, the system is easy to install and operate and gives the rider total control over top speeds and power output. This trike specific conversion kit allows you to turn any conventional 3-wheel adult tricycle into an electric-assisted adult mobility tricycle.
Conversion Kit Specs:
Watts (Nominal/Peak): 500-1000w (EBK 22amp controller)
Top Speed: Approx. 14 MPH @36v in 26" wheel & 20 MPH @48v in 26" wheel (add this kit and any 48v battery to cart separately for this combination)
Range: Depends on battery capacity(AH), total load, rider input and terrain
Stealth Factor: Low
Battery: Not Included
Charger: Not Included
Any battery chemistry (Li-ion, LiFePO4, Lithium Manganese, Lead-Acid, etc.) is acceptable, as long as the voltage is 36v or 48v AND the battery is capable of 22Amp continuous discharge. The Amp Hour (AH) battery specification is an indication of a battery's capacity. A battery capacity of 10ah will typically deliver 20 miles / 32kms range.
Choosing Your Wheel Size: You can find your wheel size written on your tire. Available size options for this conversion kit are: 20", 24", 26", 700c & 29er. Acceptable tire widths for the E-BikeKit rims: 1.15"(29mm) - 2.25"(57mm).
Front vs. Rear Wheel:
We recommend rears for most conversions.
A common misconception is that front wheel conversions are easier.
It is our professional opinion that there are two legitimate reasons to use a front wheel hub motor:
1) You want true two-wheeled drive
2) You have an internal rear hub shifter
If neither applies to your conversion, a rear wheel conversion is likely a better choice.
