ERT-36 The folding adult electric recumbent tricycle
A recumbent electric tricycle is an electric tricycle that places the rider in a laid-back reclining position. Most recumbent riders choose this type of design for ergonomic reasons; the rider’s weight is distributed comfortably over a larger area, supported by back and buttocks. On a traditional upright tricycle, the body weight rests entirely on a small portion of the sitting bones, the feet, and the hands.
Most recumbent models also have an aerodynamic advantage; the reclined, legs-forward position of the rider’s body presents a smaller frontal profile.
Flag and cover are not included.
Your electric tricycle comes on a pallet, carefully packed, secured, insured and shipped to your door at no extra cost. Are You Ready to Ride?

The brake, ignition, battery level indicator are located by your fingertips on the handlebar.

Why should I consider buying an electric tricycle?
It is fun to ride, costs almost nothing to operate, gives you exercise (since you have the option to pedal it) and you will belong to the next generation who can think differently by reducing greenhouse gasses to save our Earth…just to name a few reasons.
How much does it cost to charge your electric tricycle?
It costs about a nickel per charge. We don’t recommend running the battery completely dead. You should charge it after every use.
How easy is to remove the battery?
It’s very simply juts pulling it out by the handles. You do not need to remove the battery to charge it, although you can charge it on and off the tricycle.
How far can your electric tricycle go?
It depends on many factors – terrain wind, tire inflation, weight of rider, riding style.
Hills are always a big power drain for any electric vehicle. We recommend that you assist by pedaling on hills. Depending on the steepness of the hills, this can double or triple your travel distance. You can also increase travel distance by starting off with a few cranks of he pedals to get you going. The power, distance per charge etc.. information on any electric tricycle are just estimated as they depend on may factors, some written above.
In what colors do these electric tricycles come?
We have them in red color.
Where can I get parts?
We supply parts for our tricycles. Also, many of these parts are interchangeable with any regular tricycles, such as tires, chain etc..
What if my battery dies while I am on a longer ride from my home?
Nothing special as you can use the tricycle as a regular tricycle to pedal home.
Does the tricycle have throttle for speed variation?
Yes, it does. It means that you can ride as slow as you want or as fast as about 20 m/h.
Are the distance per charge and the speed of the tricycle firm?
No. They depend on the weight of the rider, the terrain, the inflation of the tires, the wind etc…
How can I charge the battery?
The battery can be charged with the electronic charger that comes with the tricycle.
Can I adjust the trike to my own height?
Yes, and it’ s very simple. You can both adjust the seat and the handlebar to your specifications!
Can I pull my trailer with this tricycle?
Yes, you can attach any trailer to the back of this amazing trike.
Read Some of our Testimonials: “very pleased with this bike .if i had the money i would bye one more.”
“5 stars for the complete tricycle Nothing but praise!!! I took the basket off and put a child seat there so I can carry my grandson easily!
“Bought this for a relative who is 73 years old and looking for way get around local streets without waiting hours for bus. Driving is not ideal as he hasn’t driven for a while and parking is issue.”
“I searched for this item as I did not have any idea of products. I tried locally in NJ for a source. I no longer drive. I am dependent on family to shop, travel all on their valuable time . Unit was delivered on schedule and in prime condition. I had my grandson put the unit together. I then had a professional check out the unit . COMENT BY PROFESSIONAL “TOP QUALITY UNIT” It is NOT A POWER ADDED TRIKE AS MOST ARE I live in Point Pleasant Beach in Ocean county I now can shop on my own. the basket is a good size. I have used the unit with power. the charger works well. prefer the speed and length of charge. I ENCOURAGE ANYONE WHO HAS THE PROBLEM OF INDEPENDET LIVING TO CONSIDER THIS UNIT . If I can do the manual if needed. think Im 85 yrs. It would have been a breeze at 75. I AM FREE AGAIN”
“The throttle system is incredibly easy to use and the motor is very effective — and quick, especially good for crossing roads at green lights. Like another reviewer, I easily got the tricycle to the 15 to 18 mph range. You can pedal and just keep the throttle light, or let the thing zip about — I do the first just to ensure that I won’t run out of battery power. The seat easily adjusts to accomodate shorter people (like me). The cargo area in the back is actually a lot larger than it looks in the picture — you can easily put in a week’s groceries or other items, although I wouldn’t put anything fragile in there — the bike has no springs. No balancing required on regular surfaces (sidewalks, paved bike trails). (This tricycle will not run well on uneven surfaces and may topple.) I’d strongly recommend this as an alternative transportion for adults like me no longer able to drive or balance a bicycle or two wheeled scooter. It’s been great for me.”
“Love this bike it will take me anywhere I want to go. This is my transportation. The bike gets 2nd looks and “cool ride” everywhere i go. It is very powerful and will take me up any hill I have tried. recommend this for anyone.”
“I purchased this for my wife, she is handicapped she loves it she rides 15 to 20 miles a day.”
“This item is well-made and working great. This is one motorized item that does not require an operator’s license to ride on the streets of a small town; thus, it worked perfectly for my aging father who no longer has a license. This gave him back some independence, boosting his spirit. I recommend this product!”
