For years since its creation, electric trikes were seen as practical alternative modes of transportation. Nowadays, it’s becoming more and more recognized as useful aids to those with special needs.
Aging and physical limitations shouldn’t slow someone down, or mean that they can’t live their lives’ full potential. It is a good thing that innovations like etrikes are now made more accessible. In this blog, you will find out how this reliable mobility equipment can help enhance one’s lifestyle and recreation.
Just like the traditional tricycle, it has two rear wheels and one front wheel. This electric ride is known for its comfort, ease, and speed. It is also a very popular mobility option among elders and those with disabilities. With its ergonomic design, the e-ride has seen a surge in its patrons and is becoming more essential in the electric ride-able industry.
The Liberty Trike has some features that a traditional tricycle doesn’t have. First of all, it runs on electric power. This means that it is easier to operate compared to a manual trike. It can be driven effortlessly just by a twist of the throttle, or light pedaling.
All of these features make it a user-friendly option for seniors and the disabled alike. There are more convenient qualities to a Liberty Trike, too.
Much like an e-bike, these etrikes have smart features that make them worth the purchase. Aside from their unique built and designs, let’s take a look at other features and functions that make them a crowd favorite.
Easy-To-Read Segment LCD – The Liberty Trike features an easy-to-read backlit display with large text mounted on the handlebars. This advanced segment LCD includes a battery meter, speed, and trip distance readout, and adjustable assist level.
