E-TrikeKit™ Adult Tricycle Conversion Kit
with Low Speed / High Torque 500w Direct-Drive Hub Motor
36 Volt 12 Amp Hour (AH) Lead-Acid Battery Pack and 2 Amp Charger
The E-TrikeKit™ is designed specifically for adult tricycles. With an LED battery indicator, reverse function, locking left e-brake handle and 36v 9FET controller, the system is easy to install and operate. The E-TrikeKit is the only tricycle specific conversion kit of its kind with unique features including alternate speed limited reverse! In reverse the top speed is limited to 4MPH. This trike specific kit allows you to turn any conventional 3-wheeler into an electric-assisted adult mobility tricycle. With electric trikes, 9ah-20ah is typical, but larger battery packs are an option considering trikes can carry more weight.
Who’s it for? Built specifically for upright adult tricycles, this system with lead-acid battery offers seniors and those with mobility needs an affordable and stable mobility solution. Equipped with speed-limited reverse, a lower top speed and a heavy-duty direct-drive motor, this system is perfect for getting around town effortlessly on an adult 3-wheel tricycle.

Sealed Lead-Acid (often referred to as “SLA”) batteries provide a reliable battery option at a low price point. SLA battery packs are the most affordable option but they are also the heaviest option. Lead-Acid batteries have a much lower weight to power ratio than lithium-based batteries and far less the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The performance of lead-acid is low; as the pack is spent, the performance is lessened. The lead-acid battery costs less initially, but over time, the “cost-per-cycle” is almost double the cost of li-ion. SLA packs should be charged immediately after each use.
