Maximum Weight: 300 lbs. max payload (including rider and gear)
Hill Climbing:How well the Liberty Trike does on the hill greatly depends on the hill grade, rider weight, input, and momentum. The maximum torque of the Liberty Trike is 60N-m.
If the Liberty Trike is presented with an immovable situation the motor system will cut power to the motor temporarily to prevent damage to the system. Releasing the throttle for a second will allow the system to re-engage and the system will be ready again.
The Liberty Trike is very powerful but steep hills and inclines will require riders (especially riders over 225 lbs.) to assist the motor with pedal power. The Liberty Trike is not a solution for climbing steep hills without any effort by the rider.

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.
The Liberty Trike is $1498 ($40 shipping inside the Contiguous USA).
Electric-assisted speed is up to 12 mph 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.
The range for the Liberty Trike is 8-20 miles with the supplied 36v 8Ah Li-ion battery pack. The final range per full charge will ultimately depend on the total load (weight of rider, cargo, input, and terrain).
The charge time for the supplied battery pack with a 2.5 Amp charger is about 3 hrs 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.
The Liberty Trike is sold exclusively here atLibertyTrike.comand ships direct to your door. Rest assured assembly is easy out of the box.

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 the fact that the Liberty Trike is ultra-portable. You can take this trike anywhere with far less inconvenience than a conventional mobility scooter.
The 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 handlebar 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.
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 about convenience, portability, and power.
The Liberty Trike rear is 25in 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 2.5in wide tires provide added stability in consideration of the narrow rear.
This is a great question and the answer remains to be seen. The trike was designed to be agile indoors with the narrow 25in rear and can also do a full 360 degree turn forward or in reverse so if you're in a supermarket aisle and need to turn around you can do it. Whether or not they let you ride the aisles... we look forward to you letting us know!
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.
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 of weeks.
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.
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.
The Liberty Trike is designed with enough power to help pull a 300 lbs rider/cargo up an 18% grade incline with moderate input. For comparison, the standard wheelchair grade incline is 12.5%.
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.
The battery pack is a 36v 8Ah lithium battery with a 1-year warranty and expected 500-700 life cycles. Life cycles 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.
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 70 lbs. tricycle.
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.
