You're going to want to be a part of that, so hit Subscribe. All right, so let's get into it. Let's talk about three-wheeled electric bikes for seniors. Now there's a lot of electric bikes on the market. There's a lot of questions about what's right for me. Are they safe for me? An electric three-wheeled bike, or a tricycle, is a great option for senior citizens.


Now, some people may be apprehensive about riding three wheels and a tricycle and this and that, but I have to say there are so many benefits to a three-wheeled electric bike. Number one, the balance. So if you're not comfortable getting back onto a standard two-wheel bike and you've been off a bike for a lot of years, the tricycle is a great option because you don't have to worry about balancing. It's set up in a way where the bike balances itself so you can just get on and start pedaling. Now, yes, you do have to steer, but there'll be nothing involved with keeping the momentum of the bike going. You can come to a complete stop. Don't worry about putting your feet on the ground because the bike is going to balance itself. So it eliminates a lot of the risk and a lot of things that can go wrong on a two-wheeled bike on a wheeled electric bicycle, so for senior citizens, it's really a great option.


The other benefit to the fact that you don't have to balance is you can also bring a lot of things with you. So if you're going to use the tricycle to go places or to ride in a community or to bring things with you, generally, like on our electric tricycles, you're going to have a big basket in the back. You can put things in there. If you're playing tennis, if you're going to the store, if you're going to the pool, you can put your towels in there. Take things with you. Now, not that you can't do that on bikes, but on a tricycle, you have a much bigger area. You have a big basket, you can fit lots of things in there, and the key, the weight distribution isn't going to affect the riding. Sometimes on a bicycle, if you have things on the racks and you're trying to balance on two wheels, putting all those things on there can make riding a little bit different. So a three-wheeled electric bike is a great option to bring things with you.


Now, the other thing too, you don't have to worry about with the electric power, now our electric tricycle comes with a 250-watt front motor. It's going to give you enough power to hit about 15, 16 miles an hour. Honestly, that is pretty fast on a bicycle. Even if you're on a two-wheel bike or a trike that's enough power. I wouldn't even suggest going that fast for most people. So if you're looking to get some speed, but want to be safe. Let's say you used to be a bike rider and now you're just not comfortable on two wheels anymore but you still want to get a little bit of speed. A tricycle is a great option because you don't have to worry about balancing like I said. You don't have to worry about breaking, stopping, getting off the bike. You can just stop while on the bike.


So the tricycle can give you some speed but safely you're balanced. It's a lot of fun and it's super, super easy to ride. I think that's the key. Lastly, with the three-wheeled electric tricycles is I'll say much safer than the two wheels. You don't have to worry about hitting curbs and falling over. Yeah, if you hit a curb it might jostle the bike but it's not going to tip you over. There's a lot more risk on a two-wheeled bike of tipping over, of falling, of falling off. On the electric tricycle, much, much less risk. So we're talking about a good bike for seniors. I believe a three-wheeled electric bike is a great option and it can provide so much freedom for whoever gets on it, whether you want to ride around for a few miles or several miles.


And the other thing I'll say is, even though with three wheels you're going to have a little more drag and resistance on the bike, you're going to have that motor. So if you want to go three, four, five, six, seven miles, no big deal because you can either use the throttle or use the pedal assist. So the benefit is if you have a throttle like on the sixthreezero electric bikes, you can kick that in on the electric tricycle and let the bike do all the work. So you don't have to limit yourself to short rides like half a mile, quarter-mile. You can do a mile, two miles, three miles, four miles, and let the motor do the work for you if you so choose. That's the beauty of it. Either use the motor or don't use the motor, the choice is totally up to you, or use the pedal assist, have it help a little. So it's a great option.
