Trikes are recommended for people who need more space for cargo or help with balancing.
The electric-assist is great as a backup for when you get tired or when you need help getting up a hill. Think of it as a hybrid; you have pedals plus an electric motor, so you get to exercise when you want, or sit back and let the trike do the work. We have trikes manufactured with electric-assist. In addition, we can convert any trike to an electric trike by installing an E-BikeKit. With a trike-specific kit from E-BikeKit (the E-TrikeKit) you can use the motor to go in reverse.
