Over 70 Rider Loves Electric Trike Mobility Scooter! Perfect Electric Tricycle for Seniors

A mobility scooter that's also an electric trike bike?

I'm Dustin. I have nearly 20 years of experience in the bike and e-bike industry. Today, I'm going to show you this electric trike bike that's a mobility scooter. And I've got a special guest star here, my dad. He's 74 years old. And he's going to demonstrate how cool this can be as a mobility device to not only get exercise but also get around your neighborhood. Coincidentally, he lives in an over 55. So this could be an amazing mode of transportation for him. All right. This is the EasyGo Compact 5 electric trike from sixthreezero, 750 watt front hub motor. You can pedal, not pedal, or use the throttle. My dad's never sat on this thing in his life. He's never even tried it, so we're going to witness firsthand how this all goes down so feel free to come on board. Now, the cool thing is you can risk you can lift the armrest here. Just step through. Step through, nice and easy. Now, one thing we've already determined is in our production version, we have to get the seat to come forward a little bit. So to accommodate that in the interim, we're going to put a pillow behind you if you want it.

Dustin: How do you feel about the pedals? 

Dad: This is fine for me.

Dustin: Are you sure? Okay. All right. Is no pillow necessary? All right. Now, you can see we can get the handlebars right into the body. Comfortable, right?

Dad: It's perfect. Yeah.

Dustin: And right here is a very easily adjustable handlebar, so he can figure out what he likes best. Yeah, that's right. Okay, and then you just clamp it down and you're off and running. The other thing you can do right here is actually raise and lower, but I think you like that anyway, so we'll leave that. Okay, now from there, you can pedal without the motor, you can pedal with the motor, you have a twist throttle here. This is your kill switch. So if it's popped out, it doesn't work. If it's popped in, now this twist throttle can work, but everything's currently turned off. So nothing is working.

Dad: All manual, huh?

Dustin: All manual. So if you'd like, let's release the brakes here because of the parking brake. So just pull that brake in and it'll pop that out. There you go. Now you're off. So you can go ahead and try to pedal a little bit.

Dad: Boy does this pop.

Dustin: Do you want to get the pillow behind your back? Well, I think it's because it's too far out in front. Yeah, so I think my dad needs the seat just a little bit forward as well. There we go. He's rocking and rolling now.

Dad: Yeah, once you build up a little momentum, it goes up.

Dustin: Yeah. So it's an automatic hub on this one. We're going to switch to a seven-speed derailleur, which would give the rider a little bit more control and I think make it easier. Are you ready for a little power?

Dad: Yeah, let's try it.

Dustin: Okay. Why don't we get you turned straight when I give you the power? That way you can... Why don't you go up here, turn around, so you're facing this direction? Comfortable, right?

Dad: Yeah. The seat's very comfortable.

Dustin: Yeah. Okay. Power's right here. Okay. Oh, wait, sorry. Yeah, so the battery's got to be turned on down here. Okay. Now we'll turn you on right here. Okay. Okay, now you can see it's in level one. So when you're pedaling, you'll get assistance. If you want to use this, you push this in, and you just twist a little bit, just a little bit, start to ease it, and you'll feel it go.

Dad: Okay, so when I start pedaling now, will I get assistance automatically?

Dustin: Yes, you will automatically, yep. Make a full rotation. Okay. Why don't you use the throttle to get you going? Yep just a little now start pedaling once you get going. Good right and you can feel that assistance now.

Dad: Cool.

Dustin: Feels balanced and easy to steer. Yep. There you go. Keep one hand up by the brake just in case.

Dad: Well, but once you take your hand off the throttle, it slows down pretty fast.

Dustin: Kind of fun though, right? As a little... Do you think you could make a trip down there and make a loop? Sure. now one caveat we're not doing helmets because we're staying in a controlled environment. 

I got the approval of my dad here. Typically we'd always have helmets on, but it's very balanced.

Dad: Perfect. This secretly is very comfortable.

Dustin: And why don't you give me your thoughts? So the seat's comfortable?

Dad: The seat is very comfortable. I just need a cup holder, maybe. I'll put a cup holder on.

Dustin: How about steering and whatnot?

Dad: Steering is very, very easy. And it's very responsive, too. So if you point it in the right direction, it goes that way.

Dustin: It feels safe, right?

Dad: It is very safe, very safe.

Dustin: What do you think about others in your over-55 community? How do you think they would feel about this?

Dad: Well, I think they'd like it. I think they'd like it because, you know where we live, it's very hilly, as you know, and you can't you can't ride a regular bike. I've tried riding a regular bike. It's almost impossible. And the other thing is we're right across the street from Oso Creek Park, which is and there's a lovely place to ride your bikes, and it would be easy to bring this. You don't even have to cross the street. There's a tunnel you can go over Oso Creek Park and you could go all over the park and to the Senior Center, which is in Oso Creek Park. So this would be a good way to get around. Yeah.

Dustin: Yeah. And easy to get on and off.

Dad: Yeah. To step through is a big deal. I think that's a lot of people, neighbors would like to step through for sure. Yeah.

Dustin: Yeah. All right. Well, there you have it. My dad also named Roger, picked up to it with no problem. And just also Roger's about five foot seven. On a good day. On a good day. Maybe shorter at this point. We don't know. So keep in mind, that we're going to make some adjustments so we can get the seat just a little bit forward to accommodate riders closer to five feet. Right now, the goal is going to be five foot to six foot four riders with being able to slide the seat back and forth. Yeah, this was up about two inches further for me. It would probably be perfect. Yeah, okay.

It's okay, but yeah. Well, there you have it. This is why we do these rides, for the feedback. Any other questions at all, please reach out to us at, or call us, at 310-982-2877. Don't forget, you can test-ride your e-trike for the first 30 days. If you don't love it, send it back, no questions asked, no money out of your pocket. In addition to that, we're going to warranty everything for up to a year, and take care of everything, parts and labor, so you can always keep riding. Lastly, join our Facebook group, sixthreezero Pedalers. There are lots of riders in there, in particular over the age of 70. that have our trikes and our e-trikes, you can talk to them in advance of purchasing so you can get comfortable. Then when you have yours posting the group, make friends, it's tons of fun. So thanks for sticking around and don't forget, it's your journey, your experience. Dad, go ahead and enjoy the ride. Thank you very much.
