Lectric XP Trike launches for pre-order at low cost, folding electric trike
The Lectric XP Trike, which was unveiled with quite a fanfare last month, has now launched for pre-orders at a surprisingly affordable price. The electric trike claims to be the first folding, fully-assembled electric trike in the industry, and it looks set to shake things up for all types of riders.
Lectric XP Trike launches for pre-order
The Lectric XP Trike, which is priced at just 1,499, is built on a similar base as the company’s best-selling Lectric XP series of e-bikes.
It offers a powerful motor, folding design and an approachable price. But in this case, the XP Trike gains a third wheel, a differential rear axle, hydraulic disc brakes and a super-accessible design.
As the company described the new three-wheeler:
“The XP Trike accommodates a wide range of abilities and preferences with our lowest standover height ever of just 13.8 inches. As the industry’s first fully foldable and fully assembled electric tricycle, The XP Trike includes the award-winning features our XP series e-bikes demonstrate, plus a bigger battery, hydraulic brakes, and a third wheel. A sturdy rear hub motor setup with a differential axle provides a whopping 65NM of torque – accommodating even the heftiest of payloads without a problem.”
And they weren’t kidding about hefty loads, as the trike comes with a 415 lb (188 kg) payload rating for rider and cargo. That includes up to 330 lb (150 kg) riders, as well as a max rating of 75 lb (34 kg) on the rear rack and 35 lb (16 kg) on the front basket.
The bike even includes the front and rear baskets as part of a free cargo bundle, though it’s listed as “while supplies last.” The cargo package seems to be part of a launch promotion, so if you’re on the fence but really like the free front and rear cargo baskets, then you may want to consider pulling the trigger on this one before that option is gone.
The XP Trike itself weighs 69.5 lbs with the 48V 14Ah battery, though unlocking and removing the battery can probably get the trike down to around 60 lbs even. That battery is probably larger than most riders will even need, offering around 60 miles (96 km) of range on pedal assist, and probably at least 40 miles (65 km) on throttle-only riding considering the lower top speed of the trike.
The top speed of 14 mph (22.5 km) is obtainable under throttle or pedal assist, though only in the highest speed setting (level 5).
Lower speed levels can keep the trike from getting away from new riders while they get re-accustomed to being back on a bike (or trike).
The single-speed drivetrain means there is no shifter to deal with, though it also precludes having a lower gear to shift into on hills. But with two-wheel drive from a 500W motor that peaks at an actual 1,092W and puts out 65 Nm of torque, hills won’t be a problem.
And I’m not just saying that – I recently visited the company in Phoenix to test out the first XP Trike on a massive hill up the side of a small mountain. It was tough to walk up the road, which wasn’t even a public road, but rather sort of an access road to an antenna at the top of the mountain (I’m not sure public roads are allowed to be this steep). Even so, the XP Trike pulled me up just fine. I was blown away by how much torque it had, even when we added a pile of steel weights into the rear basket to drag up the hill with me. In fact, the road was so steep that I was thankful Lectric outfitted the trike with hydraulic disc brakes so I could make a confident descent. It’s also great to see the the XP Trike has a parking brake, in case you ever need to park on a hill.
Despite that impressive power, keeping the pedal assist in lower speed levels made the power gentle and manageable on startups so that it didn’t feel overwhelming.
I’ll have a complete first ride experience coming soon. But if you don’t mind spoilers, know that I’ll definitely be recommending this trike to those who are looking for an accessible three-wheeler that won’t break the bank. At just 1,499, this is a seriously good deal.
Top comment by tanker
I’m getting one for my in-laws (in their 80’s), likely they will never get 15 mph on their rides, but just having a trike with electric assist allows them to get out and try different things.
It’s been tough to get the older folks outdoors since COVID, they’ve got their indoor equipment to keep active, but just getting outdoors makes a difference.
Electric tricycles have become a growing category in the e-bike world and even a hot new battleground after Lectric eBikes followed Rad Power Bikes’ launch of the RadTrike with their own Lectric XP Trike announcement.
Other companies are also getting into the trike game, though these are definitely the two major players at the moment.
Having ridden both, I can say that the RadTrike felt a bit more stable with an extra wide rear end, though both were more than comfortable in turns and I had to go out of my way to try to get them up on two wheels. With Rad offering what is likely a more elegant ground up design and Lectric coming in with arguably more features (including that key fully-assembled delivery), both e-trikes have strong selling propositions.
I’m definitely excited about the future of electric trikes. Companies like these are pushing the industry forward, and that’s good for everyone.

Electric Tricycles: A Must-Read Guide on How to Ride One
An Electric Tricycle is an electric bike with three wheels for added safety and comfort. Like a traditional tricycle, one wheel is in the front, while the other two are parallel to each other in the back. This makes balancing on them much easier than bikes and scooters, while their motor makes it much easier for people to go far without over-exerting themselves.
In short: Electric Tricycles are electric bikes, but safer. Their back two wheels add an extra layer of sturdiness, while their motors help folks with limited mobility.
Getting On an Electric Tricycle
When it comes to mounting an Electric Tricycle it is going to be much easier than mounting a normal two-wheeled bike, because it’s stable. You don’t have to worry about losing your balance; it’s going to be almost like sitting in a chair.
Two things to make sure of before mounting an Electric Tricycle:
- Make sure the motor is off, or at power level 0.
- Make sure you’re on level ground so the trike’s not going to roll in any direction
Next, you’re going to want to grip the left brake and step through, then sit on the Electric Tricycle’s seat. Make sure you have a model that doesn’t have a bulky motor that might get in the way.
In short: Make sure the motor is off and you’re on level ground. Grip the left brake, step through, and mount the bike. Take your time.
Turning With an Electric Tricycle
Turning corners is easier on an Electric Tricycle, but there is something to keep in mind: Electric Tricycles are wider than two-wheel bikes. This means you’re going to need more room to turn.
Practice your turns in your neighborhood before going on a longer ride. Be aware that you’ll need more space to turn.
Also, do not “lean” into your turns as you would a normal bike: keep your weight centered over the middle of the trike. Electric Tricycles are not meant to be ridden on “edge,” and if one of the rear wheels comes off the ground, the rider is at risk of tipping over.
In short: Leave more room for turns, and practice in your neighborhood. Keep your weight centered over the middle of the Electric Tricycle.
Using the Motor
Electric Tricycles use motors in the front wheel, or rear wheels of the trike to power forward, which means an Electric Tricycle will track infinitely better when compared to a normal bike or trike. For instance: riding up a hill on a normal bike is hard. With an Electric Tricycle, it’s easy.
Simply turn on your pedal-assist or full-throttle feature, and your Electric Tricycle will have no problems with hills. Adjust the power levels and your level of pedaling in your neighborhood to get used to how fast you’d like to go before going out into the world.
In short: The motor on an Electric Tricycle makes life way easier. Take your time learning how the motor works in your neighborhood.
Electric Tricycles are easier to learn how to ride than two-wheeled bikes. But when getting used to its wider base, we recommend riding down a quiet street or finding an empty parking lot to practice.
In terms of braking, you’re going to apply the same strategy used with a normal bike or trike: just grip the brakes. But because your Electric Tricycle is motorized, please give yourself more time to brake if you’re moving faster.
When you see obstacles, realize that you’re not as nimble on an Electric Tricycle as you are on a normal bike. You’re going to want to slow down and give yourself a wide berth when maneuvering.
Be aware of your larger footprint when riding. Your Electric Tricycle will take up more space when riding.- the rear wheels are likely wider than your shoulders.- so keep that in mind when riding around pedestrians or cars.
Finally: obey all cycling laws in your local jurisdiction, and wear a helmet.
In short: The motor on an Electric Tricycle makes life way easier. Take your time learning how the motor works in your neighborhood.
Electric Tricycle Benefits
Electric Tricycles are easy to learn and maintain, not requiring a license or formal training. They can be taken for rides on paved surfaces such as sidewalks, bike paths, golf courses, and parks, offering people a great way to get around and see their community.
Electric Tricycles offer freedom from traffic jams, and they’re eco-friendly because you don’t need gas. They make for a great hobby for folks who place a premium on feeling balanced, sturdy, and safe.
This is perhaps they’re greatest benefit: they’re safe for people of all abilities. Electric Tricycles offer a lot of advantages to people with certain disabilities and are great for senior citizens. Riders have to worry much less about falling off or over-exerting themselves in the face of strong headwinds, due to the balance provided by the back wheels and the added help of the motor.
There are also health benefits to cycling with an Electric Tricycle. It’s a great way for folks to stay in shape and exercise, while also staying engaged in their community. Getting from point A to point B becomes much easier when you’re on such a sturdy bike, and the electric motor makes it easier to ride up hills or flat terrain. You’re also engaging with your environment in a way that simply feels different than riding in a car. In addition to the physical benefits, this also provides a boost to your mental health, which becomes increasingly important as you age.
Although providing a great way to exercise, Electric Tricycles reduce unwanted physical strain because they don’t require as much effort from the rider when using them over long periods of time.
In short: Electric Tricycles offer many advantages for people with disabilities and seniors who want to ride without pain. Electric tricycles provide the added advantage of being powered by an electric motor that makes it easier to climb hills and go farther than traditional bikes over long periods of time.These motors also reduce physical strain because pedaling with them doesn’t require as much effort from the rider.
What Situations are Electric Tricycles Best Suited For?
As mentioned, Electric Tricycles have three wheels: one in the front, two on the rear. This makes them significantly more stable than a bicycle.
Electric Tricycles are great for those whose ability to pedal is limited due to injuries or disabilities. It affords a great way to ride on bike paths, and if the Electric Tricycle has fat tires and the right motor, they can even be used to ride in conditions like snow or dirt paths. This means they’re perfect for people who are looking to get out more, but who want a safer ride than those provided by an electric bike or a standard bike.
A proper Electric Tricycle should have seats that can be adjusted so that you don’t have to bend over while riding them. Ergonomics are key, and for this reason, Electric Tricycles are best suited for those who value comfort in their ride.
In short: Electric Tricycles are far sturdier than bikes, electric bikes, and scooters. They provide a great way to ride on bike paths, paved surfaces, and even hills. In the case of Electric Tricycles with fat tires, they can even be used on dirt paths, beaches, and snow.
Commonly Asked Questions About Riding an Electric Tricycle
Here are the most commonly-asked questions about riding an Electric Tricycle:
How safe is the Electric Tricycle?
First and foremost, you need an Electric Tricycle that you feel secure on. That means feeling balanced, getting on and off, and being able to customize it if you have special needs (while not losing any of the Electric Tricycle’s sturdiness). Next, you need front and rear lights for safety. Finally, check to see that the Electric Tricycle has disc brakes.
How comfortable is it to mount and dismount?
Find an Electric Tricycle that’s easy to mount and dismount. Ideally, it’s one with a well placed motor and battery that makes getting on and off more comfortable. Its frame should have the rider in mind; it should have a low step through so it’s easy to step in and out.
How easy is it to set up?
From order to shipment to assembly, the process needs to be simple and safe. Look for companies that provide fast and free shipping, and that provide bikes that are mostly assembled already. If they have a white glove service option when the bike arrives, even better; someone can come help you make slight adjustments to customize the ride is key.
How easy is it to use once it’s set up?
It should take less than five minutes from the time you set up the bike to the time you’re riding. Anything more than that is too complicated.
Does the battery matter?
Yes, for a few reasons. Electric models can be powered by several types of batteries, but you want to look for one with a “Smart charger” so you don’t have to worry about over-charging it. You also want to be able to travel a long distance on a single charge.
What modes should it have?
Both full throttle and pedal-assist, so you can choose how much physical exertion you want to use.
What if I have issues with the bike after I start using it?
Look for a company that can provide service anywhere. They should be able to send someone to you to help with any simple fixes. You should also look for a company that offers a strong warranty.
In short: Know the answers to the questions above when purchasing an Electric Tricycle.

It has been said that people often select objects in colors that evoke certain moods or feelings. That said, will you choose orange based on a favorite sports team, yellow because it evokes happiness, or red, because the first bike you ever owned as a child was that color? Whatever the case is, have fun with it!

How you choose to ride your electric trikes, such as in full-electric mode or pedal-assist mode, will greatly impact how much battery you spend.
Pedal-assist will use up considerably less battery time than if you have it on full-electric mode for the entire duration of the ride. Good news is that it will take only about 3 hours to recharge from 0-100%!
Easy-To-Read Segment LCD
The Liberty Trike features an easy-to-read backlit display with large text mounted on the handlebars. This advanced segment LCD includes a battery meter, speed, and trip distance readout, and adjustable assist level.
LCD screen displays can be found on most high-end electric trikes which offer handy information including speed, battery usage, distance covered, and remaining battery life to its user.

Pedaling outside is not reserved only for fit young people and athletes with powerful legs and perfect balance. With an electric tricycle for adults like Pedego Trike, anyone can enjoy a spin around the town and get a good exercise.
This tricycle puts you in a comfortable upright riding position, and its low-step frame lets you get on and off with ease. Thus, it is very accessible.
- Powered by a 250W geared front hub motor with 30Nm of torque.
- The 396Wh (36V 11Ah) battery can take you up to 33 miles on 10 cents worth of electricity.
- Disc brakes front and back ensure the best possible braking performance.
- A 3-speed internal gear hub lets you shift at standstill.
- Comes with a spacious storage container that can carry all of your necessities.
Pedego Trike is a versatile three-wheeled machine that can help elderly people or riders with injuries reclaim their freedom. However, it can also be used by everyone else as a cargo hauler or just to have some fun.
Is it worth the money? Let us find out.
- MSRP: 2,995
- Class: Class 2
- Motor: 250W brushless geared hub, 30Nm
- Battery: 396Wh (36V 11Ah) with Panasonic cells
- Range: 25 to 30 miles (estimated)
- Read more on Pedegoelectricbikes.com
Pedego Trike is built around a low-step aluminum frame with a high tensile steel fork. The frame has a forward pedaling position, which puts the rider closer to the ground while giving them full leg extension. This provides more stability, and it makes it easier to hop on and off the saddle.
The frame is pretty bulky and strong, though the company does not disclose what the maximum carrying capacity is. All we know is that they say ‘most’ of their bikes have a 250 lb. weight capacity, but that there are examples of heavier people riding without any issues.
The geometry puts the rider in a relaxed upright position, while the wide saddle with a padded backrest provides extra support.
Pedego Trike is heavy, but not extremely so. The total weight of this tricycle is around 80 lbs, with the battery included. That’s not bad at all, considering the size. There are even some electric bicycles that weigh the same.
Pedego Trike Motor and Battery
Pedego Trike is a Class 2 electric tricycle, which means it offers both pedal-assist and throttle functions.
The company chose to equip it with a 250W geared hub motor, placed inside the front hub. Due to the unique frame design, there was no room for the motor on the rear axle. With 30Nm of torque, this motor performs decently, but there is an occasional wheel spin when you use the throttle too hard. The reason is that most of the weight sits over the two rear wheels.
Pedego Trike’s battery capacity is not impressive, but the low maximum speed means that you can still get a manageable range out of it.
Pedego Trike is powered by a 396Wh removable battery that’s neatly integrated into the frame. capacity would certainly be nice, but a 30-mile range you get from it is far from negligible. Depending on how often and how far you ride, you’ll probably charge it once or twice a week. The battery comes with a lock and a battery charge indicator, so you can track how much farther you can go.
An important thing to point out is that Trike’s maximum speed is limited to 7 mph in throttle mode and 11 mph in pedal-assist mode. Tricycles are very stable when riding in a straight line, but they can flip over when cornering too fast. That’s why Pedego limited the top speed for safety reasons.
Pedego did a really good job when it comes to the components they chose to include on the Trike model.
Firstly, this tricycle has mechanical disc brakes on both front and rear wheels. That’s a big plus as it’s not very common; many similar trikes have rim brakes on the front wheel. This setup gives Trike great braking performance, especially when riding downhill with a heavy load.
Both brakes on Pedego Trike can also function as parking brakes, which will help you get on and off the saddle and load and unload the rear bucket.
Next, Pedego Trike drives with a 3-speed internal gear hub that requires no extra maintenance. It shifts smoothly, and the three gears provide enough range to pedal with ease on flats, downhills, and moderate climbs. Best of all, you can shift gears while standing still, so you can start pedaling from a full stop without stomping the pedals.
What’s also important to point out is that this trike rolls on 20″ wheels with Schwalbe Big Ben 2.15″ tires. They feature puncture protection and a slime inner tube sealant, so you don’t have to worry about flats.
Spacious Storage Container
Pedego Trike includes a massive, custom-built storage container mounted atop the rear wheels that can carry all of your necessities. It’s made of lightweight, but durable plastic, textured with an “orange peel” tread that masks any scratches.
The dimensions of the container are 20” W x 13” L; Overall Width: 30”. Pedego also included drainage holes on the bottom, so you can easily wash it and keep it clean.
The container is pretty large, so you can easily fit all of your weekly groceries inside or a large backpack with all of your necessities.
The good news is that the basket has a regular shape, so most of the space can be used. The bad news is that the container’s shell protrudes too far, so you can scrape your heels on it, especially if you have large feet. If this happens, I recommend just cutting off the part that protrudes since it’s there just for style, not for function.
Pedego Trike Assembly
Depending on where you buy it, you may receive your Pedego Trike fully or partially assembled. If you buy from one of Pedego’s local dealers, they will assemble the trike for you, adjust and tune all the components, and make it ready and safe to ride.
However, if you buy Pedego Trike on the company’s official website, you’ll receive it in a box, partially assembled. But don’t worry, you’ll receive all the tools necessary for assembly and detailed instructions on how to do the last few steps.
Pedego Trike is easy to assemble. It takes about 30 minutes or less, with just a few tools that come in the box, with the trike.
All you need to do is attach the stem to the frame using the 6mm Allen key and align the handlebar. Next, attach the pedals using the 15mm wrench, making sure to pay attention to the left and right size denomination. Finally, insert the battery in place, and lock it with the provided key.
After you check that everything else is in place and tightened up, you can take your Pedego Trike for its first real ride!

You can raise the saddle quite a bit, so riders taller than 6 feet can pedal comfortably as well. You can also raise the handlebar using the adjustable stem.
Unfortunately, Pedego does not provide any type of size chart for the Trike model, so we can’t recommend it to you based on your height. It’s advisable to visit a local Pedego dealer and try the Trike if possible, to see whether or not it fits you.
