eTrike – electric power assist all terrain wheelchair
The latest product from the Mountain Trike company and recently added to the range, ideal for those who are looking for some assistance to travel off road or for active users who want to go further, faster or tackle more challenging terrain. The eTrike is designed with all the same components found on the Mountain Trike, but is fitted with a motor hub. The eTrike offers flexible riding – the user can propel manually by pushing the drive levers and add power assist when required by twisting the throttle, or it can be ridden by combining pushing the drive levers and twisting the throttle simultaneously. The throttle is operated from the lever drive with an easy to twist grip or thumb lever with 5 power settings displayed on a LCD screen. The 250w hub motor powered by a 36v 12Ah Li-ion battery has an excellent range and is powerful enough to cope with rough surfaces and hill climbs alike. The battery can be charged whilst fitted to the eTrike or removed to be charged indoors.
