E-TrikeKit Adult Tricycle Conversion Kit with Heavy-Duty (Low Speed / High Torque) 500w Direct-Drive Hub Motor 48 Volt Li-ion Battery Pack and Charger.

The E-TrikeKit electric tricycle conversion kit with a 48v lithium 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 premium system with lithium battery gives a high-end performance and longer overall battery life.

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 a speed-limited reverse (30% of forwarding top speed).

The E-TrikeKit™ is designed specifically for adult tricycles.
Includes 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.

Li-ion batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge (unlike seal lead-acid where performance is diminished 1:1 as the pack is emptied). Li-ion batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The li-ion option costs more initially, but over time, the "cost-per-cycle" is about half the cost of lead-acid. Li-ion packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries MUST be properly cared for during storage.

Battery Choice: We offer 2 battery packs for this kit - the 9Ah li-ion shrink-wrapped battery is the lightest and smallest, at just 5.8lbs. The 20Ah li-Ion shrink-wrapped battery is the longest-lasting, with a 20-44 mile range.
