Why Do Customers Love The EWheels EW-29 Electric Tricycle for Adults?

With so many different electric trike options out there, how do you decide which one is the best adult tricycle for you? This E-Wheels Electric Trike Adult Tricycle EW-29 review will take a closer look at some of its best features to help you decide if this is the perfect option to fit your lifestyle.

Important EWheels EW-29 Electric Tricycle Features at a Glance:

High-Quality Construction, Stable 3 Wheel Design

The question we get asked most often on this trike is, Is it stable? And it makes sense. Most of our customers are later in life adults that want to ensure the utmost safety when enjoying their new trike.

We’re here to tell you with confidence, YES! E-Wheels designed the EW-29 tricycle with individuals just like you in mind. You can feel 100% comfortable knowing this trike if used properly, will keep you upright and safe during everyday use.

In addition to safety in overall design, E-Wheels outfitted this tricycle with high-quality braking and suspension systems.

A quality braking system is crucial to ensuring a high level of rider safety. Often times we see trikes poorly made with average, or even below average (. cringe), braking systems. It’s scary to think about potentially not stopping, right? That fear is completely removed with this trike. Safety is our #1 priority and we know it’s yours as well.

Plus, don’t forget your trike is only going to be ridden if it’s a comfortable ride. A trike with a poor suspension system is going to take the pleasure away from riding your new trike. I don’t know about you, but I prefer NOT to feel every bump in the road when I’m riding to the park. That’s something you don’t have to worry about with the E-wheels EW-29 Trike. They’ve taken the initiative to upgrade the suspension system so you can look forward to every ride you have on your new trike. Bumps not included!

Powerful 500-750 Watt Hub Motor

When you’re looking for a an electric tricycle, often times our customers aren’t too focused on the strength of the motor. We get it, it’s confusing to be honest. And like you, we think each trike should be made with a more than appropriate strength motor to get you from A to B, and everywhere in between.

However, if you take a look at the tricycles on the market and compare the watt strength of the motors, you’ll quickly see a lot of companies don’t put a premium on that aspect.

EWheels took this to heart with the EW-29 Adult Tricycle and outfitted this model with more than enough power to get you where you’re going.

With this tricycle you can reach speeds of up to 15 mph and have a range of up to 20 miles on a single charge. This is incredible speed and range for a recreational tricycle.

An inefficient and weak motor won’t take you that far that fast.

Not to mention, this motor is powerful. We’re talking pop curbs, climb hills and ride off road if necessary. That’s true value, packed in an electric adult tricycle.

Don’t get stuck with a heavy trike and a weak motor. You’ll regret it. Believe us, we hear it all the time at American Mobility Specialists, and it only makes us sad :-(.

Staggering 400 lb Weight Capacity

You’re probably buying this adult tricycle for more reasons than just a pleasurable ride around the neighborhood. Most of our customers envision this trike to be a fun way to get to the grocery store, the beach, the lake, a neighbor’s house, etc. And having space to put your groceries, beach gear, floats, and/or dish for the neighborhood potluck is incredibly important.

When E-Wheels designed this tricycle, they thought about that as well.

Outfitted with a large basket in the back and a small basket in the front, this tricycle can carry up to 400 lbs of weight (including you) to your destination. That means, unless you’re carrying a stack of bricks to the neighborhood get together, then you can most likely stash and take everything with you on your ride to the party!

Most people don’t think about this when buying a trike, but as you can see, it’s an incredibly important detail to consider!

100% Electric Throttle Power and/or Traditional Pedaling

To pedal or not to pedal, that is the question?

Both options sound good to us, so why have to choose? The EW-29 Electric Tricycle by EWheels is flexible. Allowing you to use the hand throttle for complete electric power in your ride or letting you use a combination of manual pedaling and electric throttle whenever you choose.

We know a lot of our customers like to have both options. There are days when you want to get a little exercise and have plenty of time to pedal your trike on an afternoon ride. And there are other days when you’re on a time limit or just don’t feel up to pedaling where the all electric option is just what you needed to get there.

Often times we see tricycles that make you have to choose. And we think having the flexibility to use both options at once or back and forth is a great way to enjoy your trike even more.

So don’t get stuck with one of those one trick pony adult trikes, get the EW-29 and experience the greatness of both worlds!

Lectric XP Trike first ride: Testing the low-cost electric trike made for everyone

Lectric eBikes is know for two things – making affordable e-bikes and making a lot of them. The company’s main goal has been to look at the e-bike market, figure out what people want, and find a way to make it more affordable. They’v’e done it time and again with their other e-bikes and that’s exactly what they’ve done this time with the new Lectric XP Trike.

The company invited me out to see the new e-trike at their headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona. There I had the chance to hop aboard and get a sense of just what this 1,499 electric trike can do.

And the answer, it turns out, is a lot. It can haul. It can climb. It can fold. It’s a three-wheeled Swiss Army knife with a ridiculous amount of torque and seating for one.

I only spent a single day with the capable little trike, and so this isn’t a full review… yet. That’s still to come. But even with only a few hours in the saddle, I can already tell you that this is absolutely going to be a major hit… if they can keep it in stock.

Check out how the Lectric XP Trike performed in my first ride video below. Then keep reading for the nitty gritty details.

Lectric XP First Ride video

The Lectric XP Trike has a 500W motor that puts out 1,092 peak watts of power. It’s mounted in a mid-drive setup as the trike’s jackshaft, giving it the ability to power both of the rear wheels via an open differential axle.

It draws power from a 48V 14Ah battery with 672 Wh of capacity, which is enough for 60 miles (96 km) of range in the lowest power mode on pedal assist. But honestly, even on throttle at the trike’s top speed of 14 mph (22 km/h), you’ll probably still get a solid 30-40 miles (48-64 km).

The bike rolls on 20″ x 2.6″ tires, has a single speed drivetrain, and rocks hydraulic disc brakes on 180 mm discs. The brake levers each have a parking brake, which I’ve never seen before on hydraulic brakes.

The 69.5 lb (31.5 kg) e-bike folds to fit in tight spaces, and that folding trick allows it to arrive in fully-assembled form. You don’t have to bolt anything together, you just unfold it and ride. That’s going to be a major benefit for many riders, especially older ones that don’t want to be bent over a box lifting a 70 pound bike around.

Speaking of weight, it’s actually relatively lightweight for an electric trike. And the low step-through size makes it great for shorter riders down to 4’10” (147 cm). It’s apparently good for taller riders also, with a rating for folks up to 6’4″ (193 cm). I’m squarely in the middle of that range, so I can’t personally speak to the extremes, but it felt great to me in terms of sizing.

It can also fit a wide range of rider weights thanks to its maximum capacity of 330 lb (150 kg). In addition to the rider payload, the rear rack can carry 75 lb (34 kg), while the front basket can carry 35 lb (16 kg).

And as part of the launch, Lectric is including the cargo package consisting of the front and rear basket for free! Getting an entire trike plus the cargo package for just 1,499 is a hell of a deal.

So how does it ride?

Here’s the crazy part: Despite being nice and gentle when you keep it in the lower power modes, there’s some significant torque in the higher power modes that is great for hill climbing.

The Lectric team took me to a hill that looked like a small mountain, and I was able to ride the Lectric XP Trike right up the side of it. We even put a few dozen pounds of steel weight in the rear basket to give me a sense of what it’d be like if I was a heavier rider. The trike didn’t care – it just kept climbing like a machine.

Coming back down the side of the mountain helped me appreciate those hydraulic disc brakes, especially when I remembered how much steel weight I had in the back.

Moving to a park next, I did a combination of paved trail and off-road grass riding. The trike performed well at both. Tight donuts are even possible, though you have to be careful about going too tight. I could get the outer wheel to lift up in tight turns if I really tried, but it was something I had to make an effort to achieve. I never felt like I would tip in a normal turn.

Is it as stable as the RadTrike? Not quite. That one feels like the king of stable trikes to me. And the Lectric XP Trike is a tad narrower in the back and has a bit higher center of gravity with taller wheels and a higher cargo rack in back. But it still feels plenty stable, and I’d be comfortable putting my parents on it – if that puts things into perspective.

While there’s no suspension on the trike, you’re never really going fast enough to feel like it’s critical. Suspension is more important to me at higher speeds where I hit obstacles with more force and where I have less time to avoid them. At a maximum speed of 14 mph, you see things coming up in slow motion and can easily wiggle around them.

As you can see in the video above, I even took the Lectric XP Trike over some seriously rugged terrain in a washed out dry riverbed. I was truly surprised how well it handled such rough off-road conditions.

That being said, the three wheels takes some getting used to when avoiding obstacles. You have to learn how to put the pot holes or rocks between two of the three wheels or take a wide berth around them.

It’s something that new trike riders will take a few days to get used to, but quickly becomes second nature.

Top comment by tanker

I think this Lectric Trike is an industry disruptor; at 1499, no other manufacturer is offering so many features on an e-trike. Either other manufacturers will lower the of their trikes, or Lectric is going to raise the price of its trikes soon after the first production run sells out.

FWD trikes are simply not able to compete with the performance of RWD trikes.

Rear differential mass centralization of putting the motor battery in the middles of all three wheels is key to stability of a trike.

At its price, can probably resell it quick if the performance is not what’s expected.

I’m tempted to buy two of them just to have one trike per in-law so they won’t fight to ride.

Yes, tadpole recumbent trikes may be faster, more stable in corners, but not many elders have the flexibility to bend down near ground level and hoist themselves onto the low seating of a recumbent.

Getting off a recumbent after a good ride? good luck with those tired legs/knees.

It may not seem difficult for those who have the flexibility strength to get in out of a low seating recumbent, but for older folks that might as well be getting in out of a DeLorean.

Lectric has done their homework with this trike; I hope they keep the price low and sell a ton of these trikes.

At just 1,499, this is a smoking hot deal, and it follows Lectric’s playbook of bringing popular e-bikes at affordable to the masses.

How long will the bike last? I have no idea. I only spent a day with it.

But the trike felt solid so far, and I also saw a room full of customer service representatives sitting in Lectric’s Phoenix headquarters waiting to help anyone should they have an issue in the future, which gives me good confidence on the customer support side.

For the thousands of people aging into electric trike territory every day, I’m excited to see options like this hitting the market. And once I get even more time on the XP Trike than just a fun day in the sun, I’m sure I’ll like it even more.

Welcome to the Liberty Trike Unboxing and Assembly video. We’re going to show you how easy it is to take your Liberty Trike out of the box once it’s delivered and put it together yourself.

For this you are going to need zero tools. In fact the hardest thing about it, will probably be taking, all the packaging off, you’ll see once we open this box. So without further adieu, let’s get right into it.

Okay, like I said, the hardest thing about unboxing and assembling the Liberty Trike is taking all that packaging off all the parts. Now that we have all the parts laid out, I’m going to show you how to put this together.

So, the largest part is obviously the rear of the trike. Now you have this stand and this stand is going to help you with this I want you to pick up the rear of the trike and place this stand right under here, in the front of the frame there, before the hinge, okay. And that’s going to give you a nice three point stance, on the rear of your frame, keeping it in place. Now you have a clevis pin in here,you are going to pull that out of the rear of the frame, we are going to set that aside for a second. We are going ahead to grab the front half of your Liberty Trike frame, put that up here. We are going to get this out of the way, okay.

And what we are going to do is, lining up here, on the front half with there rear half, okay. And once I have that lined up, I’m going to be able to take that clevis pin and put that right in the top. When you get that side of the hinge lined up, you get that in half way. Now at this point, you can remove the stand and put it over here.

Now you want to keep this out of the way, for the folding, but this clevis pin has to go through the bottom hole as well. I want to put my hand underneath, I’m going to push and I’m going to push down on the pin where you are going to get the pin all the way in, you should be able to see that on the bottom as well.

Now, you want to lock this hinge in place, at this place it’s folding you want to take, this quick-release, work that up and down and get that in like that and then lock it into place like that. The next part is, you want to make sure that the wheel is straight. Now your wheel is straight if your fender is pointing to the back here like this, so make sure your wheel is on straight.

You want to take your handlebar, pick that up and we’re going to insert right here in the front. You want to make sure your brake cable and mechanical cable is bowed out and nothing is impeding that and then you have your electrical cable, I’ll show you what to do with but just get your handlebar in there and then go ahead there’s a quick-release here, you can go ahead and close that.

We’ll do the final adjustments on the wheel in a second. So now you have that done, we’re going to make our connection on electrical. So you have an electrical connection here andthis is for your components in the front, which would be your brake, your throttle and your LCD. Okay, you want to take a look down there, make sure none of the pins are bent. You want to line up your arrows and you want to push this together, very snug. Make sure there’s no daylight.

Now you are done with the front of the trike. Now the next thing is going to be your seat, so you can go ahead and pick up your seat. We are goingto take that, we’re going to place that into the seatpost into the stem and then we are going to lock that up and we can do final adjustments later.

The next part is, you are going to take your basket. Your basket goes on in the back here and you have a couple of wing nuts and washers, you want to remove those, counterclockwise. Once you remove those, you can put your basket lay that on top and find those threaded holes underneath, line them up. Now you are going to take, a wing nut and a washer, you are going to put that on your wing nut and carefully find the threading and turn that clockwise to tighten it up. You’ll do that with both, hand tight, you don’t need to over do it and that should secure your basket.

You can go on and do final adjustments meaning your seat height and your handlebar height and make sure your handlebar is aligned with your front tire. So you can go do that with these quick-release. That’s pretty much it.

In a separate video, we will show youhow to turn your trike on and some of the initial operations.

One more thing here we want to do is, once you have your trike together, we want to come down to the bottom we want to connect your power, okay. So we have one connection down here. This is a thread connection. So you want to look at it, line up arrows, make sure you are putting it in the right way, there’s only one way to do it and then turn that little thread, the aluminum threads, lock that into place, that goes underneath your trike frame.

You have a cable in the back here and that’s going to plug into your battery face. Push that in snug. Now your Liberty Trike is together, it’s ready to go.

ewheels, ew-29, electric, tricycle, adults, score

The next part, we’ll show you how to turn this on, how put the key in and get riding.

Hi, this is a Liberty Trike. It’s a great way to get around, enjoy the outdoors, it’s easy, and it’s fun, and I’m going to show you how to get going on your very first ride.

So before your first ride, you want to check a few things. You want to make sure your brakes are working, obviously, go ahead and test those out. You want to make sure your are seated properly, all your adjustments are done, and that your tires are inflated to around 35 PSIs; also, don’t forget to bring your helmet.

One of the first things that you want to do is make sure that your key is in the ON position, that it’s parallel to the ground. Okay, now that you have done your safety checks and your ready to ride, the position on the bike you got it fit for you.

The seat is where it needs to be; you got your helmet on, we checked our brakes and our tires, you are ready to get going here. The first thing you are going to do is power ON the trike. To power on your trike, you are going to the i button on the left-hand side of the handlebar, and you are going to hold that i button down for a couple of seconds. Doing that is going to power on the LCD screen in front of you. And what you are going to see first is the twenty-five flashing. That twenty-five is an indicator, it’s telling you that your brake may be on. If that’s the case, grab your brake lever of the left-hand side and you are going to release that brake lever, andthat will go away.

Before you ride, it’s very important that you know how to stop. So stopping your Liberty Trike, you going to do that in two ways. You have a front brake,which is here on the left side. You are going to grab that with your left hand and pull on the lever towards you. That’s going to actuate your front disc brake. Now the other brake you have is in the rear. So if you go to pedalbackward, that’s going to stop that. That’s like an old-school coaster brake, right we’re all familiar with that. Now one key tip in this area is when you goto stop, I don’t want you to put your feet down. I need you to trust the brakes on the trike, go slow, trust the brakes, DO NOT put your feet down. If you putyour feet down, let’s show them what’s going to happen. Put your feet down and your rolling, and you can run over your calves that way. So insider tip, don’t put your feet down when you are stopping. Make sure you use the brakes; good idea to use both the rear coaster brake by pushing backward and your left front hand there; using them in tandem is a great thing to do.

The next part of what you are going to do here is your going to want to put this in what’s called Level One. Now level one is easy to get into; it’s going to be on your screen; you can see right here we have zero. one, two, three, four, five. That indicator is your Level Assist; it’s really a percentage of your top speed. Think about it like this, twenty, forty, sixty, eighty percentage of one hundred. So we got zero, which is nothing. We got one, two, three, four, five, twenty, forty, sixty, eighty, one-hundred percent, the top speed.

Now that we are ready to go, we are going to get ourselves into level one. So you are going to look at the top right-hand corner of this LCD that you are looking at right now, and with the plus and minus, you are going to take that up or down; you want to land on one. Once you get there, the lowest kind of starting speed assist, you are going to have on the Liberty Trike.

Now you are in level one; you want to make sure your left hand, front disc brake is off; your feet are up, and now you are ready to go. The way you are going to go is by turning the throttle here, which is controlled by your righthand. You are going to turn that throttle with your two front fingers and your thumb like a motorcycle. REV. REV.

You are going to turn it in towards you by bending your wrist. That’s a variable throttle; the more you twist, the more power that you are going tohave and the faster that you are going to go. A lot of our riders, from a dead stop they, want to use that throttle to get going, and then they can start to pedal as well.

It’s always a good idea to pedal on your first ride; pedaling will actually help you balance your Liberty Trike. So you are going to do that, grab your throttle, to get you going as well. Again we are in level one for safety, and that’s where you are going to do this until you get more familiar with your riding your trike.

There’s one more aspect of this that we need to let you know before you go on your first ride. On that throttle, on the right-hand side, you do have a little red button there, as part as that throttle. It is popped out; you cansee it’s protruding from the throttle, and that means you are in forward.

So when you twist that throttle, the Liberty Trike’s motor is going to go in a forward motion. Now if you hit that button and press it in, it will stay collapsed and that is reverse. The reverse function on the Liberty Trike is 3 mph, speed limited. So if you ever want to go in reverse, come to a complete stop, push that button in so you are in the reverse mode, and twist that throttlein the same way, pulling towards you, and that will give you reverse mode. Now one safety feature here is if you hit that (red button) while riding, the trikewill unresponsive until you come to a complete stop, and then it will find its way, depending on the button, forward or reverse. So you want to be aware of that as well.

So now you know how to control your trike, you know how to get going on your first, off-the-line start here, with the throttle and the pedal combination or whatever is comfortable for you.

Why don’t we try that? Remember to push back here for your brake for your rear, and up here is your front coaster; stay in level one for safety, take turns very slow, very important, and don’t put your feet down.

Ready? Ready! Alright, let’s see you go!

[Jason Kraft, CEO of Electric Bike Technologies, Inc.] Electric Bike Technologies started in 2008. We started off as a conversion kit company and our first brand was the E-BikeKit.

The Liberty Trike behind me, especially is something that’s really taken off in the past few years. This was developed as an alternative to a mobility scooter, and we have a lot of senior riders. They have really embraced the idea of the Liberty Trike they love it.

[Donna F., Liberty Trike Owner] I’ve always been a cyclist and a motorcyclist, and I just had so much fun the first couple of times. I was out on the trike it was amazing. It was so, stable, and so easy to ride. My husband and I ride together, and we have several routes to take, to just enjoy the day.

The Liberty Trike has a couple of key features, that other electric trikes don’t have and that’s what makes it unique. One of them and the most important is, that it folds, and not only does it fold, but it separates completely into two pieces this makes it easy to transport. The Liberty Trike will fit in most vehicles.

The Liberty Trike has a 36-volt 10 Amp battery. This battery will take the average person of 150 to 200 pounds up to 24 miles and the range of the Liberty Trike will pull a 300 pound rider up a wheelchair ramp with no pedaling. We feel like, we’re part of something really special, to be able to give seniors this ability, to be more active, and to be more mobile, and enjoy the outdoors more and enjoy cycling more.

[Liberty Trike Theme Music Fading]

Hi, my name is Jason Kraft. I’m the CEO of Electric Bike Technologies in Pennsylvania and I want to give you some quick tips on safety around your lithium-ion batteries, whether for e-bikes or anything else, these safety tips apply.

We’re going to run down a quick list. There’s a PDF we’re going to provide, probably share a link to that wherever we share this video, you’ll be able to take that with you and study that.

Okay safety guidelines for lithium-ion batteries number one. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions, seems pretty simple but read that book no matter what you get, whether it’s from Electric Bike Technologies or not. Make sure you’re following that manual and all of those safety instructions around proper use, care, charging, and storage of your lithium-ion batteries.

Always plug into lithium-ion battery directly to a wall outlet. This one gets overlooked a lot. No stacking, no putting these into a strip, give it its own outlet, okay. That’s the safe way to do it.

Don’t use extension cords, don’t use power strips. Always charge at room temperature. Lithium-ion batteries like to live the way you like to live, so those temperature are good if you’re cold it’s cold. Don’t charge it if you’re hot; it’s hot. Don’t charge it you want these basically at room temperature. You don’t want to charge, a nice cold frozen battery and you don’t want to charge a battery that’s boiling already.

Always charge your battery in a well-ventilated area with a fire detection system. Okay, this is a battery safety thing. You want to make sure you’re charging this somewhere where if gas does escape or something like that, that it’s not going to cause a bigger problem.

Always monitor the battery when you’re charging. This is kind of interesting for e-bikes because a lot of manufacturers, do recommend a balancing chargeonce in a while. If you have a battery with multiple cells but for the most part you want to be attentive.

You don’t want to leave a battery charging unattended. You don’t want to do it overnight while you’re sleeping. Those are dangerous situations, you want to make sure that you’re able to act if there is a problem.

Occasionally for those balancing recommendations you want to do an extended charge, that’s fine but you want to pay attention, do not leave your lithium battery unattended while charging.

Do not stack or cluster lithium-ion batteries. So if you have a bunch of stuff, whether it’s an e-bike battery or whether it’s a smaller lithium-ion battery, you don’t want to stack these things together. You create excessiveheat the more you put them together, so don’t do that. Let them have fresh air flow.

Do not use the battery or charger if it has been damaged. Okay, if it’s been wet, if it’s been punctured if it’s been dropped. If you dumped your bike, donot do that. If something has been physically damaged, you want to stop, assess the situation. Get some professional help if you need it.

Don’t charge that battery, if it’s been dented or something like that. Never block your exit from the home while charging your lithium-ion battery. Againfire safety stuff, they want to make sure you can get out of the room if something goes wrong. So make sure you have an exit plan.

You never try to modify or service your e-bike or trike battery system. You don’t want to do that you’re not a professional. You didn’t design these. Don’t get in there messing around. That is one sure way to cause a problem. Get professional help, if you need to service your batteries. Don’t try to do that yourself.

Never use a battery if it shows signs of physical damage. Again it’s just so important that if you drop your battery or if you crack your charger or anything like that, you do not want to use those products. So, when you getthem tested out, make sure they’re good before you use them, or you want to replace them.

Never place lithium-ion batteries in the trash, recycling bin. This is very important this environmental aspect of all this. We’re putting a lot of batteries out there, these large lithium-ion batteries you don’t want to justthrow these in the trash. You need to contact your local Waste Management Service company, or you can look online there are companies that specialize in the disposal of lithium-ion batteries.

We want to do that right. We have a great industry. It’s a fun industry, electric bikes. We don’t want to mess this up, we don’t want to mess our planet up, we don’t want to mess ourselves up. So do the right thing and dispose of your batteries properly.

I hope these tips are helpful, hope you find it useful. Again this is a general outline for battery safety when it comes to lithium-ion batteries, we all need to take care.

I hope this helps you have a good day.
