Today we're answering the question, can an electric trike go off-road?
All right, I'm here with a sixthreezero EVRYjourney Electric Trike. It has a 250-watt motor. And we're going to see if we can take it off-road. We have this hill here. First, I'll go down, and then I'll show you how easy or difficult it is to get back up. And we'll try that in pedal assist and using only the throttle. Let's go.
All right, we're going to head uphill now using only pedal assist. I have it set to five. So, let's go. Oh, pretty easy, actually. I'm in second gear. Yeah, no difficulty here. But I weigh about 115. So, of course, your results may differ depending on your weight. And we have not quite a full battery, maybe about 80%, but that was pretty easy using level five pedal assist.
All right, I'm going to head downhill, and actually, I'm going to just turn the motor off. I don't think I'll need it. Gravity will take me there. Let's go. Okay, so it's pretty uneven, so I do have to lean, which is something to be mindful of if you plan on taking your e-trike off-road but made it down. All right, let's turn around.
Okay, now let's take it up using only throttle. Right now, I'm set to level five. So, full power. Let's see how it does. Oh, I might have to pedal. Oh, no, I don't need to pedal at all. It's slow and steady. I'm at about three miles per hour. Going uphill is a lot easier than going downhill on a trike, I think, as long as your motor is working. Oh, it's pretty steep here. Let's see if I can make it all the way up. I don't think so. Okay. So, in that last steep section, I did have to pedal.
All right, so I guess that answers our question, can you go off-roading with an electric trike? Using pedal assist, yes, in most cases, and using only throttle for the most part, but you may have to pedal a little bit. One thing to be mindful of is that you will have to shift your weight if you have uneven terrain. So keep that in mind. But it's a lot of fun, and it's cool to be able to e-trike in a different environment than you normally would.
