For businesses, this commercial grade electric tricycle is built with a large warehouse or industrial type environment in mind. The addition of a second 48V lithium-ion battery effectively extends the range of this electric trike up to 120km or more, per charge, while the powerful 500 watt motor allows extra towing capacity for cargo, tools or trailer. 4” Kenda fat tires provide additional cushion and durability when riding across any terrain from gravel to concrete and everything in between.
The Commercial etrike has a narrower rear wheelbase than most electric trikes.Coming in at 26 inches to the outer tire and 29 inches to the outer fenders, making for a smaller turning radius and easier maneuverability in tighter areas. Great for a busy industrial site or large commercial warehouse where there might be a lot of traffic, other machinery or equipment and personnel moving around in a restricted environment.
Combining an aluminum alloy frame, front and rear suspension, disc brakes and double wall aluminum rims with 4” rugged tires and a rear cargo rack measuring 26” wide by 19” deep and 15” high allows this electric tricycle to carry a maximum load of 120kgs, or approximately 270 pounds. The unique feature of the etrike is it’s “Tiltable” frame. By twisting a lever on the handle bars the front frame unlocks from the rear frame. Still connected through a ball joint the eTc Commercial will now sway and tilt allowing it to replicate the feel and motion of a regular two wheel bike or ebike. When cornering, the rider can lean into the corner for addition stability moving their centre of gravity to compensate for the sideways centrifugal force. At slower speeds the rider can once again activate the locking mechanism with a simple thumb lever on the handlebars and let the eTrike stand alone when dismounting.
Just because this electric trike is suitable for an industrial workplace does not mean that it can not be ridden in only those scenarios. This trike is also great for individual use as well. For personal riding, the dual 48v battery combined with 500W 48v motor on an extra rugged, tiltable aluminum frame and narrower width rear wheelbase makes this etrike quite suitable for longer rides, camping adventures or extended hunting trips. You can tow an optional trailer with ease, effectively adding to the already impressive cargo carrying capacity of this commercial electric tricycle. Taking off on a trip with your tent, camping gear and supplies, or packed up and ready to go for hunting season with a specialty hunting trailer, the Commercial etrike has the outdoor enthusiast in you covered. With the clarification of trail use for electric bikes in many provinces has come an increased interest in electric bikes and trikes for backcountry excursions.
