How to Select the Best Trike E-Bike? (with examples)

Trike e-bikes attract a lot of people because they are the height of convenience. For one, they virtually remove the need to balance because of the extra tire. Secondly, most can be fully motor-run, thereby removing the need to pedal too much (some models even let you forgo pedaling completely). You get stability and handiness all in one.

Why have you decided to opt for an electric trike? Is it mainly because of the great stability they provide? Do you want comfort as much as possible or do you intend to use it for a more practical purpose? There may be trike e-bikes out there that can easily astound many experienced e-bike riders with how they are built and their specs, and they will definitely be mentioned here.

But that is just half of the equation in acquiring the best trike e-bike. Once you learn all the criteria you need to know, you will certainly know why.

Top criteria for the best trike e-Bike

What would be deemed as the best trike e-bike? It is a given that most electric trikes will be able to provide those two said fundamental qualities. This considered, we need to start looking at specific factors such as the battery, motor, weight, capacity, helpful features, price, and, more importantly, your preferences and purposes for using an electric trike.

The ones you can view in the table below pretty much tick those checkboxes. But, in the end, be sure not to overlook your preferences and reasons for buying an electric trike. It plays as much of an important role when buying an electric bike that is as specialized as this.

Also, take note that upright and recumbent electric trikes pretty much serve as the clear dividing line between casual and performance use in electric trikes. This is especially proven by the big-ticket recumbent models of such brands as Outrider and HP Velotechnok.

Once you opt for the latter, not only can you expect maximum speed and battery life in electric trikes but relatively more expensive price tags as well. However, that’s not to say that all recumbent electric trikes are heavy-duty and high-end because casual models do exist.

The best trike e-Bikes based on customer feedback

Riding range is all up to you; just make sure it doesn’t fall short

Yes, it does not hurt to have as much battery life as you can. But if you are just going to be traveling for very similar distances every day (like most commuters), then having an extremely high battery life will just be overkill.

Make no mistake, the riding range should, as much as possible, be high especially if you are the type of ride that does not want to pedal too much. Most casual, upright electric trikes noticeably do not offer as much range as their other e-bike counterparts. The comparatively heavier weight can be attributed to this, as well as the fact that these casual trikes are often just used for leisure riding or commuting.

If you are that type of rider, then make sure that the riding range will be sufficient for your traveling purposes. You may have to opt to pedal more to extend the battery life. Besides weight, pedal input, and battery capacity, other factors that impact the range are the terrain (you normally get lesser range when riding through inclines a lot), temperature, and speed.

It can be hard to calculate the riding range because of these variables. This is why the best trike e-bike, with its innate handicap weight-wise, should not disappoint in this regard. You also can’t blame people for choosing trikes with more riding range and faster-charging batteries because of this.

An e-trike should be able to compensate for its weight

Most users want to have lighter weight in electric trikes because of most models for an obvious reason. And that is saying a lot when it comes to electric bikes, which are naturally weighty enough as they are. The heftiness of the electric trike also plays a big role in how quickly you will be able to get the hang of riding it.

Cargo electric trike riders should also be extra mindful of the weight. If you will be using the trike for grocery shopping regularly, you will need to have a powerful motor and a battery with a decent range. This rings truer for riders who will be using solely full-motor mode for the entire ride and if there are hilly portions along the way.

Arguably, the weight only ever becomes a concern in electric trikes that do not have enough power or those built for casual use. If you will be using your electric trike for commuting, comfort riding, carrying passengers, and heavy items, then you better start considering options that can accommodate the extra weight and still manage to not be too cumbersome to the point that it greatly affects the overall riding experience.

E-trike motor should provide enough assistance

Considering the heavier weight of these e-bikes, you need to pay closer attention to the motor integrated. Plenty of cities also cap their motor power limit at 750W. If you are going to be using the electric trike for commuting alone, 500W and even 250W brushless motors will probably be enough because most are as silent as they are efficient.

For seniors, who often prefer electric trikes because of their stability, you probably can make do with motors that reach 14-16 mph top speeds. Most of these models are cheaper and can still impart satisfactory riding experiences every time.

However, if you will be hauling heavy things with it consistently, then you may want to have a more powerful motor. Assuming the electric trike has a 400-pound maximum weight capacity, opting for 500W or even 750W models might be necessary – and that is probably what the manufacturer will incorporate.

Comfort and safety should be boosted by other features

If you will be riding through muddy or unpaved roads often, then do not hesitate to go for models with fat tires; they are designed for that purpose, and they also add great support to rear-drive motors. If you are a frequent night-time rider, you will definitely need a powerful LED light.

Monitors and LCD displays are also some features worth having as they inform you regarding how much battery life or range is left and your current speed. For added visibility, you may also want those installed with rear and front lights.

The types of brake used, likewise, are equally important to consider. Disc brakes are often the gold standard in e-bikes simply because they are more efficient and make quick braking possible and easier.

If you are riding a high-performance, speedy recumbent trike, you will thank models that integrate dual front brakes like these because of their stellar stopping distance.

Make sure the price is always relative to features (and your purposes)

It goes without saying that you will probably not be buying an Outsider recumbent electric trike costing 14,000 if you will only be using it for brief, comfy trips around the neighborhood. That may seem like a glaring overstatement but plenty of buyers still make the mistake of instantly going for high-end models just because, well, they’re fancy or seems to have everything you need.

Need – that word has to be put in the spotlight every time you are buying an electric trike. If all you need is comfort, then start looking at features that ensure that such as the seating, position of the handlebar (higher is often more comfortable), and how long you can ride the trike without experiencing any pain or discomfort.

On the other hand, if you need more capacity, then make sure you find an electric trike with a bigger cargo load that can still support the extra weight you pile on it. If you need more range or speed, then start looking at the battery and motor more.

often than not, once you choose the trike e-bike that satisfied your primary need or purpose, it won’t be farfetched to say that it is the best trike e-bike for you. And, again, this is because most electric trikes are designed to fulfill those various, specific purposes.

If you keep this in mind, it will not be hard to find the best electric trike for you. It should, more or less, be outstanding in delivering what you need and still deliver balance when it comes to fulfilling other fundamental criteria. This way, you do not lose out on price and, of course, value for money.

Incidentally, if you get electric trikes with long warranty terms, sweet. That is a good sign of quality in most e-bikes. One- and two-year comprehensive warranties and five- or ten-year frame coverage are considered as decent to exceptional warranty terms. Be on the lookout for such models.

A few words in conclusion

One thing is certain in the facts about electric bikes mentioned above: your purposes should never come second to any other criteria. The sheer amount of models that you can choose from nowadays and the various subcategories of electric trikes make this nothing short of a necessity.

Otherwise, you will only end up paying more for features you will not be making the most out of. Even if it ends up satisfying all the other criteria, can you still consider it as the best trike e-bike for you?

Raleigh Tristar iE Electric Trike Review Part 1 – Pictures Specs

13 Комментарии и мнения владельцев

The Raleigh Tristar iE step thru trike is in for testing and review!

Comfortably cruising around the neighborhood with enough cargo capacity for running errands is what the Tristar iE is all about.

This eTrike features a 350 watt mid drive motor and a 48V 8.7ah lithium-ion battery with the option to add a second battery for double the range!

The Raleigh Tristar iE is priced at 2,599 USD.

In this first part of the review you will get a detailed look at this bike with a BUNCH of pictures and the specifications.

Part 2 of the Raleigh Tristar iE review will give you info on the ride characteristics, results from the range test, pros, cons, and overall thoughts on this eTrike.

Alright, let’s take a closer look at the Raleigh Tristar iE!

The Raleigh Tristar iE is ready for cruising around the neighborhood and running errands.

The 21″ x 14.5″ x 8″ metal cargo basket on the back can carry a lot of cargo. This is handy for getting groceries, carrying a daily commuter bag, etc. On the left side there is a place where a flag can be attached for additional visibility out on the road.

The Raleigh 6061 aluminum step thru frame has been designed with relaxed geometry that makes it very comfortable to ride. The step thru design makes it very easy to get on and off this eTrike.

This is a closer look at the mid drive motor area with a gusset for reinforcement and solid looking aluminum welds.

The Tristar iE is a pretty unique eTrike because it features a mid drive motor which helps it climb steeper hills by leveraging the gears of the trike. This is a 350 watt Currie Electro-Drive motor that provides assist up to 12.5 mph is pedal assist level 1 and up to 15 mph in pedal assist levels 2, 3, and 4. Upright trikes generally have a lower speed to provide stability when cornering.

A stylish chain guard does a good job of keeping your pant legs clean and the pedals have a grippy rubber surface.

This is a Class 1 electric bike that is pedal assist only (no throttle) and provides assist up to 15 mph.

This is a view of the Sturmey Archer 3 speed internally geared rear hub that is mounted near the back of the Tristar iE. The main chain from the mid drive motor drives the cog on the left side (of this picture) of the internally geared rear hub and the cog just to the right transmits the leveraged gear back to the rear wheels axle.

This angle shows the chain from the Sturmey Archer 3 speed internally geared rear hub to the rear wheels axle. The right rear wheel of the trike provides the power while the left side spins freely.

Just above the drivetrain and below the cargo basket is where the 48V 8.7ah lithium-ion battery is located. Another unique feature of the Raleigh Tristar iE is the extra battery option for double the range! As you can see in this picture the stock Tristar iE comes equipped with all the battery connection hardware; just slide in the extra battery pack and go. The extra battery adds 499 to the 2,599 base price.

There is a handle on the back of the battery that drops down for battery removal after the battery has been unlocked with the supplied key. The battery weighs 7.3 pounds.

Here’s a look at the battery pack after it has been removed from the trike and the charger plugged in. The charger is about the size of a laptop charger and it takes 4 to 6 hours to fully charge the battery. The battery can be charged on or off the trike.

Let’s take a look at the handlebars of the Raleigh Tristar iE. They have a swept back and upright position for a comfortable ride style. The handlebar stem height can be varied to fit your riding preferences.

On the left side of the handlebar is the front brake lever and Currie Electro-Drive control pad. The button with spring on the brake lever is a brake lock button for keeping the trike in position when you park it. To lock the brakes, squeeze the brake lever, push the button, and then release the brake lever. To unlock the brakes squeeze the brake lever and release and the button will unlock.

The control pad varies the pedal assist with the or – buttons. The button below that cycles through the different information (speed, trip distance, odometer, range) on the display and the button to the right of that is the on/off button.

In the center of the handlebar is the LCD display that shows the current pedal assist level (there are 4 different levels), the current battery level, speed, trip distance, odometer, and estimated range. The estimated range is a cool feature because it will estimate your range remaining based on the current battery level and what pedal assist level you are in.

select, best, trike, e-bike, examples

On the right side of the handlebars is the rear brake lever with the lock button and the Sturmey Archer 3 speed twist grip shifter.

On the front of the Raleigh Tristar iE is the 24″ wheel with steel fork and front steel fender.

A Promax V-brake is spec’ed on the front wheel.

The rear brake is a mechanical disc brake with 160 mm rotor that is attached to the Sturmey Archer 3 speed internally geared rear hub that then transmits the braking to the rear wheel via the chain and axle.

Here’s a look at the Innova 24″ x 1.95” front tire that has a good tread pattern for mostly road riding but it can also handle some off road conditions.

Slime tire sealant comes stock in all 3 wheels on the Raleigh Tristar iE. This is a very nice feature because the Slime sealant helps to prevent flats from thorns, glass, etc.

Here’s a look at the 20″ rear wheels with Innova tires (20″ x 1.95”) and steel fenders.

The rear steel fenders have built in reflectors for a clean look and additional visibility.

The Velo Comfort saddle has a wide profile with a center relief area for a comfortable ride.

I won’t be even thinking about buying one of these trikes…….Too expensive for one…….Too slow………I can buy a Recumbent trike from Utah Trikes for 200.00 less and get a better deal!!

I agree. I am planning on a world tour in 2018. This type of an electric trike is out of the question, but à recumbent tadpole, even à folding tadpole is à possibility.

I think you miss who this is for. An older woman or man who just wants a little exercise and might need help pedaling while going to the neighborhood store would be the target market for this trike. I helped put an electric hub motor on the front of a trike for a man in his eighties so he could get out and pedal a little or as much as he wanted while going to the store. This trike helps older people keep riding and provides transportation if they no longer drive a car.

Good point – this trike is not designed for the younger crowd like the recumbents are. I have ridden this trike and If anything, I think the 12.5 mph may be on the high side for it’s expected audience. This is the first center drive e-trike I have seen and as such it is a market leader.

Just looks like an old fashioned bike with old gears tin mud guards not moved with the times but for the the up to date price tag

And when tournee continue to Europe, we have tricycles already waiting for tourist. https://www.jorviktricycles.com/tricycles/electric.html

Expense?? People mention this about e-bikes all the time. A 2000 bike isnt expensive if you have looked around at the offerings in the pedal only arena that go way beyond it. Look for some of that price to go down as battery technology improves even better than it already is. I’m sure Raleigh did its marketing research to find out there is a customer base already waiting for this product. The first few commenters obviously arent in that group.

Great write up Pete! This is a much needed addition to a bike segment that has been historically underserved. I think there are many that will really enjoy this bike!

im glad to see a purpose built trike that considers the needs of people that require just such a machine. about to undergo a hip replacement revision i will be looking at scaling back my cycling activity. my eyes are drawn to my road bike, two mtn bikes and city bike as i know my needs and ability change. i appreciate ebike reports interest in all facits of the industry and to Raleigh for putting a product to market that will bridge the gap for many.

Great review as usual, Pete. Raleigh Electric changed its website’s domain, however, and your links on this and Part 2 now get “Error 404” messages. The new site is: https://raleighelectric.com/electric-bikes/utility/tristar-ie-e-trike
