FAQs

Who is it for?
The Liberty Trike is designed for anyone that wants to get around actively or effortlessly on 3 wheels. The compact design makes it portable for taking on trips and easy to navigate in confined spaces. The electrical system and powerful hub motor enable the Liberty Trike to travel over most terrains and up reasonable inclines with ease.
How much does it cost?
The Liberty Trike is $1498 plus $98 shipping inside the Contiguous USA Only.
How fast does it go?
Electric-assisted speed is up to 11.5MPH  with 5 levels of top speed controlled by + and - buttons on the LCD and will not have any resistance to natural pedal power above that top assisted speed.
How far does it go?
The range for the Liberty Trike is 18-30 miles with the supplied 36v10ah Li-ion battery pack. The final range per full charge will ultimately depend on the total load (weight of rider and cargo), input and terrain.
How long does it take to re-charge?
The charge time for the supplied battery pack with 2.5amp charger is about 3.5hrs from empty to full. Like a cell phone, the battery may be charged at any time and the charge time will depend on the present level of charge in the battery.
Where can I buy it? Do you have dealers?
The Liberty Trike is sold exclusively here at LibertyTrike.com and ships direct to your door. This sales model (AKA the Tesla model) keeps costs down. Rest assured assembly is easy our of the box. Your seat height should be the only adjustment you'll have to make. No tools are needed for assembly or adjusting your seat height. If you have a specific question call or email us and we'll make a video explanation just for you! TOLL FREE: +1 866.894.4620 or support@libertytrike.com
How is it different from medical scooters?
The biggest difference is the ability to be active. The Liberty Trike has pedals and pedaling is always encouraged; being more active and getting physical activity is a very good thing.
The other difference is in the cost, the battery, and in the fact that the Liberty Trike is ultra portable. You can take this trike anywhere with far less inconvenience than a conventional mobility scooter.
Why the special hinge on the frame?
The patent pending hinge allows the Liberty Trike to fold in half or to completely separate into two nearly equally weighted pieces. This feature along with a quick release handle bar and seat post make the Liberty Trike ultra portable and give a level of convenience not found with any other adult tricycle on the planet. See the dimensions of a folded and separated Liberty Trike here.
Why not get a regular adult trike?
Regular adult trikes are great but they don't come close for those that may want, or need, a bit of electric assistance. And the Liberty Trike is unmatched for an industrial strength adult tricycle with regard to convenience, portability and power.
Will it fit through the door of my house?
The Liberty Trike rear is 25" wide and was designed to be narrower than any conventional adult tricycle just for this purpose. Doorways are easily navigated, making the Liberty Trike ideal for indoor use. The 2.5" wide tires provide added stability in consideration of the narrow rear.
Can I ride it into the store?
This is a great question and the answer remains to be seen. The trike was designed to be agile indoors with the narrow 25" rear and can also do a full 360 degree turn forward or in reverse so if you're in a supermarket isle and need to turn around you can do it. Whether or not they let you ride the isles... we look forward to you letting us know!
Who can service it?
We can, and so can any local bike shop. The tricycle has parts familiar to bike mechanics and the electrical system was designed to be modular so any repairs or replacements will be easy and hassle free. In any case where the bike (or half the bike) may need to come back to our facility for repairs, the shipping hassle will be greatly reduced because of the compact size, modular component design and the patent pending hinge that allows for literally shipping just one half of the trike if necessary.
What kind of service will it need?
The components and motor on the trike are very durable. There is no ongoing service requirement outside of normal tricycle maintenance. The battery that powers the trike would be the one thing that requires an extra level of care. The battery must be charged regularly when in use, and does require regular maintenance charging during longer periods of storage. Proper maintenance in storage would be to charge the battery pack to full and then come back at least once every 45 days to "top off" the battery by charging to full and removing the charger. The charger should not be left on indefinitely but an overnight charge for cell balancing is a good idea every couple weeks.
Is it hard to learn to ride it?
It's not hard to ride but we would suggest taking some time initially to get comfortable with riding and the feel of the trike. Tricycles are not bicycles and as such it takes some getting used to riding on three wheels. The biggest difference is trusting the trike during braking. You shouldn't put your feet down and should instead use the front disc-brake and rear coaster brakes to stop. Otherwise you'll put your feet down to stop and likely run over your calves with the rear wheels. That tends to happen to almost everyone at least once while getting used to riding any trike.
Do I need a driver’s license?
No, the Liberty Trike system is well under the Federal regulations for a motorized vehicle and is as street legal as any conventional tricycle in most if not all states. Please check with your local DMV or regulatory authority if you are unsure.
Can it go up steep hills?
Yes, the Liberty Trike is designed with enough power to pull a 300lb load up an 18% grade incline with ease. For comparison the standard wheelchair grade incline is 12.5%.
What if it rains?
Rain is not an issue. All of the components, motor, battery and connectors are water-resistant to handle rain and wet conditions. With that said, we would not advise storing the Liberty Trike outside or leaving it out in the elements indefinitely as moisture over time will find its way into electronics.
How often do I need to replace the battery?
The battery pack is a 36v10ah lithium battery with a 1 year warranty and expected 500-700 lifecycles. Lifecycles are the number of times you can expect to discharge and recharge a rechargeable battery from full to empty. Regular use, proper care and charging will contribute to the final number of charges.
Can I pedal it to recharge the battery?
No, the Liberty Trike does not have regenerative braking or any sort of charging while in use. The concept of regenerative braking or pedaling makes more sense for heavier automobiles but not so much with a 70lb tricycle.
Do I need a special lift to take it someplace in a car?
One of the best features of the Liberty Trike is its compact design including the folding and separating hinge, quick release seat and quick release handlebars. These unique attributes make the Liberty Trike ultra portable and allow for many convenient options of transport. A special lift, like those required for conventional mobility scooters, is not something anyone should need to transport the Liberty Trike. See the dimensions of a folded and separated Liberty Trike here.

    Story

    Electric Bike Technologies has been in the electric bike business since 2008 making retrofit conversion systems that empower users to convert conventional bicycles and tricycles into electric. The Liberty Trike was created because of the many requests and suggestions we received from our tricycle conversion customers.

    With their encouragement, we transformed that feedback from concept into reality to develop the Liberty Trike electric adult tricycle. And, with your help, we brought concept to life through crowdfunding campaigns in 2015. Your support made the Liberty Trike possible and we are forever grateful. Thank you!

    Imagine all the freedom you could have on your own Liberty Trike.
