Improved Easy Entry Electric Trike
Electric Trikes are a great confidence booster for riders who are balance-challenged or just require the stability of riding with three wheels.
They are also especially useful if you commonly carry a heavy load on your e-bike and would like to park up without the bike tipping over.
Wattwheels have updated their e-trike in 2019 with the following improvements:
Lower Step Frame
The frame has been re-designed to lower the step-through for easier entry, this makes getting on and off easier for riders who can't lift their foot very high off the ground. Wattwheels now has one of the lowest step through e-trikes on the NZ market.
Easier Gear Changing
The gears are within a Nexus internal hub on the rear wheel, so the chain is secure and cannot fall off. Gear changes are smoother and can be done while you are stationary, so you can start off in an easier gear.
Convenient Battery Placement
The battery is located under the rear basket where it can be charged in place, or you can slide it out. Now there is also a second mount for two batteries to be installed if you plan to do some larger km's or just like using the throttle a lot!
Adjust your power with the throttle
The Wattwheels e-trike has a thumb throttle on the left side if you want to boost your power or get tired of pedalling. The throttle's use is optional as the electric motor will still provide assistance when you pedal. Of course like all ebikes, you can turn the power off and still ride it like a normal pedal trike.
Your top range is up to 80 km on a single battery charge depending on your power level used, hilly or flat terrain, and the weight being carried on the e-trike. There is a programmable display to restrict speed or power if needed.
The Wattwheels e-trike has waterproof cabling and also a reverse gear.
Note: The Wattwheels e-Trike is available to buy online but must be collected from our Hawke's Bay Bike Shop. We have been unable to find a reasonably priced carrier in NZ for a fully built e-Trike. If you think you can arrange shipping through a NZ carrier please give us a call on 06 877 8477.
