Built specifically for upright adult tricycles with heavy-duty motor designed for increased torque. Upgraded in 2015 to include LCD dashboard and 36v/48v 12FET controller giving the rider total control over top speeds and power output.
E-TrikeKit™ Adult Tricycle Conversion Kit
with Heavy-Duty (Low Speed / High Torque) 500w Direct-Drive Hub Motor
36 Volt 10 Amp Hour (AH) LiFePO4 Battery Pack and 2.5 Amp Charger
The E-TrikeKit electric tricycle conversion kit with 36v lithium battery pack is specifically made with increased pulling power for heavier adult tricycles. The direct-drive hub motor is designed to deliver more low-end torque and a lower top speed; important for safety on a 3-wheeler. This premium system with lithium battery gives high-end performance and longer overall battery life.
Who's it for? This kit is built specifically for upright adult tricycles. The heavy-duty direct-drive motor is designed for increased torque and a lower top speed. This kit also has speed-limited reverse (30% of forward top speed).
The E-TrikeKit™ is designed specifically for adult tricycles.
Upgraded in 2015 to include our LCD dashboard display, 36v/48v 12FET controller, speed-limited reverse function, and locking e-brake handles, the system is easy to install and operate and gives the rider total control over top speeds and power output. This trike specific conversion kit allows you to turn any conventional 3-wheel adult tricycle into an electric-assisted adult mobility tricycle.

Stealth Factor: Low
Li-ion batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge (unlike seal lead-acid where performance is diminished 1:1 as the pack is emptied). Li-ion batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The li-ion option costs more initially ,but over time, the "cost-per-cycle" is about half the cost of lead-acid. Li-ion packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries MUST be properly cared for during storage.
Choosing Your Wheel Size: You can find your wheel size written on your tire. Available size options for this conversion kit are: 20", 24", 26", 700c & 29er. Acceptable tire widths for the E-BikeKit rims: 1.15"(29mm) - 2.25"(57mm).
Front vs. Rear Wheel: Adult 3-wheel tricycles are typically a single front wheel and two rear wheels. The E-TrikeKit is also available in a single rear wheel by request for special applications (like front loaders); supplies are limited.
