Must See Foldable E Trike for Short Riders: Short Women & Men Will Love this Electric Tricycle

A folding e-trike that can accommodate short riders.

Hey everyone, I'm Dustin. I have nearly 20 years of experience in the bike and e-bike industry. And today I'm going to show you a folding e-trike that can accommodate short riders. And today I've got Olivia with me, who's 5 foot 2 and has a 29-inch inseam. And she's never ridden a conventional tricycle as an adult. When I say conventional, I mean two wheels in the back. She just rode our reverse trike, which rides more like a two-wheel bike. So this is going to be her first time riding a three-wheel e-trike with two wheels in the back. All right, so first and foremost, we're going to show you how we can size this trike perfectly to Olivia because of a couple of cool features. This is a 750-watt front hub motor, so it actually can accommodate riders up to 350 pounds and get you uphill. It's got a throttle and pedal assist option. Battery can also take you up to 50 miles on a single charge. All right So let me show you a couple of things here. On the seat here, it's a double-seat post. So we can bring this seat way up to accommodate even riders up to 6'4", and 6'5". Now, Olivia's 5'2", so we don't need it this high. But just to demonstrate how low we can get it if need be. So let's go ahead and bring this down.

Dustin: Okay, go ahead and try sitting on that. Looks pretty good.

Olivia: Pretty perfect.

Dustin: And we could lower the seat down another two inches. So I've said that this can accommodate riders to about four foot 11. And again, Olivia has an inseam of 29 inches. Now, how do you feel about the handlebars? Too high, too low? Because we can lower them too.

Olivia: Yeah.

Dustin: Better?

Olivia: That's better.

Dustin: How about the angle?

Olivia: That feels perfect.

Dustin: Yeah? Yeah. So we do have two bolts up here as well, where we could tilt these either into the body more or farther away. You can see Olivia's in a good upright position and super relaxed like the bars come into her body, her elbows are relaxed. So you're able to accommodate a lot of rider heights and body types. Also, this does fold, so if you want to transport it, there's a folding mechanism down there. And now we're going to turn her around, and she's going to demonstrate taking her first electric tricycle ride ever. So we're going to get her all set up here. Okay, she's ready for her maiden voyage. So I walked her through a few things. One thing I want to show you, too, so go ahead. The power button's right here in the middle. Hold that down. Okay. Okay, now you're all geared up.

Dustin: Now, one thing... I want to show you also, go ahead and put your feet on the pedal. This has reverse. So go ahead and put your feet on the pedals and push the throttle just a little bit and start just a little ease into it. Go ahead and start pedaling backward.

Olivia: Oh, that's cool.

Dustin: Yeah. Okay. So you have the reverse option on this as well. Now you can flip that bucket button back to drive to do the D. So there's a D and an R and you have the seven speeds here as well. You can shift up by pushing here, down by pushing here. Same things, you're up and you're down, and your throttle. Now, you have to steer on a tricycle. The reason I say that is on the two-wheel bikes, you kinda lean a little more. On this one, you have to turn the handlebars where you wanna go, and just trust that it will stay balanced. It will balance, but a lot of people think it won't. So you have to psychologically tell yourself that it will.

Olivia: OK.

Dustin: So you can just pedal because you're in level one. Yeah. Yeah.

Olivia: Oh.

Dustin: Hit the brake. Hit the brake. Brake. Brake. OK. Tricycles, like when you ride them, Like, I've got to go like this. Okay, like actually turn it.

Olivia: Turn it.

Dustin: That's what I'm saying is like, don't worry, it'll stay balanced. But if you want to go this way, you have to turn. Doing this will do nothing. Okay, so this is a great, this is a great first example here. Olivia, like I said, has never been on a conventional trike. This is not uncommon. It’s your brain resort to thinking that you lean as you lean on a two-wheel bike. On a three-wheel trike, leaning does not move the bike. It can counterbalance the weight to help keep the wheels down, but it won't steer the bike, the trike. So hop on again. I'm going to stick with you this time. We'll go slower. And then keep one... fingers up there, yep. Okay, put your feet on the pedals. Go slow. Go ahead. Now practice steering yes there you go. Now slow down. Now make a full U-turn. Turn to the left. All the way trust it, trust it, trust it trust it yep there you go.

Olivia: Okay. Yeah, it's easy ones you know, but.

Dustin: Now make another, go over there, and make a U-turn. Trust it. Turn, turn, turn, turn. Harder, harder, harder. There you go. Can you go down a little farther you think? Turn to the left, turn to the left. Left, this left. Just stay away from the cones. There you go. Left, left, left, left, left. There you go.

Olivia: Ha! Total difference.

Dustin: This is, it's not uncommon. You have to retrain your brain. Yeah. Into how to ride. So we've taught Olivia how to ride a trike in under, and you can even, you can even turn it more. That's what I'm saying. Like there's this thing where people only turn, like you can turn it. And it's fine.

Olivia: And it's fine, used to the regular bikes. 

Dustin: Right. Like you don't have that zero turning radius. Do you feel confident enough to make it down there? I'm going to stick with you. Let's try. There you go. We'll go around the berm again. Just keep it at a casual pace. And practice pulling the brake too. There you go. Steer the wheels to the left. There you go. Start turning now. Yep. Harder, harder, harder, harder. Turn, turn, turn. Watch the back wheel. Watch the back wheel. Okay, you're good. You're good. There you go.

Olivia: Just a little practice.

Dustin: Try the throttle a little bit with your left thumb. Just a little. Don't pedal. Throttle. There you go. There you go. She did it.

Olivia: I did it.

Dustin: So I'll back you up a little bit or you can get off if you want to. What Olivia just experienced as her first ride is not uncommon. I've done hundreds of test rides for people riding an adult trike for the first time. So if you're looking at getting an adult trike, electric or non-electric, you may experience the same thing your first time out riding. Stick with it. Olivia, just literally, we've only been here the length of this video, under five minutes. You went from running into the cones the first time to doing it. And it'll get easier and better every time you do it. So keep that in mind.
