Leave the car at home. This sleek looking eTrike for adults is the perfect solution for your environmentally considerate commute. Cheaper, Healthier and Greener riding this electric trike daily will become your first choice of transport even after the work day ends. You’ll find yourself coming up with excuses to grab your etrike rather than your car on weekends as well. With a large rear basket and zippered cooler bag you can easily stow your laptop, lunch, jacket and whatever else you may need at work. Large 4” Kenda tires absorb the bumps in the road or pavement and easily handle gravel or the occasional icy patch. With a powerful and efficient 500w mid drive motor any hills on your commute will be eaten up and a top speed of 32 kms an hour will find you arriving before many car drivers stuck in rush hour traffic.
The range on the eTc Commuter is conservatively 50 kms which covers most commutes. The battery is of course easily detachable and can be charged by plugging it into any 110v outlet by your desk. The battery will be completely recharged from empty in a normal 8 hour work day or overnight ready for your next ride.
You can also forget outrageously expensive parking stations. Simply find a safe spot for your eTrike and chain it up. The money you will save on gas and parking alone could easily pay for your electric trike in the first year. Remember as well that you don’t need a licence, expensive insurance or registration with an eTrike.
Then there’s your general well being to consider. How many people sit in their car for half an hour or more in each direction to work and then get home and don’t have time for exercise. Or even worse pay costly gym membership fees to run on a treadmill or sit on a stationary bike. Driving home in a car and then going to the gym to sit on a bike doesn’t make sense when the weather is fine. When you ride your electric trike to and from work your body, your heart and your lungs will love you for it. Don’t have a shower at work? So use the motor to a greater extent heading to work then on your commute home turn down the motor and gets some cardio done. You’ll save an enormous amount of time by converting commuting time into exercise time and despite what you may at first think you’ll be arriving home energised not exhausted after your work day. A bike ride home trumps the frustration of sitting in traffic any day.
With the cargo capacity of the eTc Commuter you can even stop by the store and do some grocery shopping on your way home. The solid basket on the front of the eTrike will come in handy for smaller parcels while the cooler bag in the bag easily hold a couple of grocery bags.
The eTc Commuter also comes with a rear axle trailer hitch so if you find you need extra carrying capacity talk to us about the range of cargo and recreational trailers on offer.
