Electrify Your New Year's Resolution: How an Electric Tricycle Can Help You Get Healthy When Living With Balance or Mobility Issues

It's that time of year when many people set new goals to improve their lifestile and overall health. Here are 5 great ways an e-trike can help achieve those goals.

  1. Improved cardiovascular health: Using an electric tricycle for adults can help improve your cardiovascular health by providing a low-impact form of exercise. Because the electric motor assists with pedaling, it can be easier on your joints and muscles, making it a good option for people with balance or mobility issues.

  2. Increased strength and mobility: Riding an electric tricycle can help increase muscle strength in your legs, core, and upper body. It can also help improve your balance and coordination, which can be beneficial for individuals with mobility issues.

  3. Enhanced mental health: Exercise has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health and using an electric tricycle can provide an enjoyable way to get moving. It can help reduce stress, improve mood, and boost self-esteem.

  4. Improved flexibility: Riding an electric tricycle can help improve flexibility in your legs, hips, and lower back. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with balance or mobility issues who may have limited range of motion in these areas.

  5. Convenience: An electric tricycle for adults can be a convenient option for individuals with balance or mobility issues, as it allows you to get outside and get some exercise without having to worry about the physical demands of traditional cycling. It can also be a good option for people who live in hilly or uneven areas, as the electric motor can assist with climbing steep inclines.

  • An e-trike is also excellent choice for grocery shopping, the more weight you put in the rear
    the more stable it gets. It is also way more comfortable than a bicycle, most have a back
    support or a lumbar support so you can go for longer trips.
    It is also possible to add a removable shell as an enclosure to protect you from the elements

  • Rear wheel motor is a challenge when combined with a differential and Nexus gear system. Our mid drive Commuter is an alternative to a front hub. Studded or chains for the tires are also an option (and a good idea if you are doing a lot of winter riding and are worried about traction).

  • Good idea to have a rear wheel drive version, for uphill on snow or ice it is a must-have, front wheel drive will spin out very easily and gives no traction, also in curves front wheel drive will not follow the direction well and will slip sideways.
