E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
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 the best foldable e-trike for seniors over 60. And I have two riders over 60 who are going to demonstrate and ride it for us. Stick around.
All right, so today we're going to show you the best foldable e-trike for riders over 60. But before we do hit subscribe, stay in touch with us here at sixthreezero and be the first to know about all the new content we're putting out, giveaways we do, and of course, new product releases. So hit subscribe.
All right. Let's say you're in the market for an e-trike or any kind of, or electric tricycle. And maybe you want a folding edition because you want to bring it with you places, put it in your car or store it compactly in your house. I have the sixthreezero EasyTransit Folding electric trike right here. This is an awesome folding tricycle that can fold up small. It's also super easy to get on and off. You can see with the very low step-through. The other feature that I haven't seen in the marketplace is we have 16-inch tires here, which makes the step-through even lower than any of the other competitors in the market. And I'm going to show you how easy it is to ride and how fun it is to ride and how easy for our riders over 60 it will be to get going and move and maneuver and utilize it.
So just a quick rock through. It's a 750-watt front hub motor, and it also has a 10.4 amp hour battery. So in terms of range, you'll get anywhere from 15 to 50 miles. It's a broad range, but there are a lot of things that impact that, such as the rider's weight, what level of pedal assist you use, and also if you use the throttle. So this e-trike has a throttle, it also has a pedal assist, or you can turn them both off. So the throttle, you simply push and you'll go and we'll have them demonstrate that as well. You won't need to pedal at all, or you have pedal assist levels 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. So when you pedal, the trike will assist you and it's up to you. Or you can turn the motor off completely and ride it like a normal bicycle. It has seven gears, like a bicycle that you can ride and shift. It's good if you want to pick up some speed or you have some light hills to go on, you can downshift into first gear. It's going to make pedaling super, super easy.
In addition to that, front and rear disc brakes, you also have the front and rear baskets, and they are very easy to adjust. If you want to see more details on this, go to our YouTube channel and you can look up the EasyTransit or folding trike. You're going to see more videos where I take measurements. I'll show you the step through, and I'll go way more in-depth about this particular trike.
So let's get into our demonstration and see our riders. And as the first time, Jack's ridden an e-bike before, and Maria's ridden an e-bike before as well, but it's their first time getting on this trike. Have you ridden an electric trike before?
Maria: I have.
Dustin: Oh, you did. Okay. And Jack, did you?
Jack: I haven't.
Dustin: Okay. He hasn't. So we'll let Maria go first. So if you want to go ahead and get on. The other benefit is it's easily adjustable. Go ahead and sit down.
How does that seat feel to you, high or, okay?
Maria: Feels good.
Dustin: And handlebars?
Maria: Handlebars feel good.
Dustin: 'll show you guys one cool thing though. If she wants them higher, you can just pull right here. And they can come up higher or lower, but you liked where they were, right?
Maria: You could even go a little bit lower.
Dustin: Lower, okay. Right, right. It was here basically as low as they go.
Maria: Very nice.
Dustin: Okay. So we can lock that in. And the seat too is the same thing. It's adjustable, and you can also adjust these bolts here to fold the handlebars in and out. So that's cool if you want to get this adjusted perfectly to your body.
The other thing I'll have them demonstrate is we also have a reverse option, which is cool. So if you get into a tight space somewhere, you can put it in reverse and go backward. And so Maria, you said you're 63, right?
Maria: I'm 63.
Dustin: And you're five foot four?
Dustin: Okay, cool. And rode a trike before. Go ahead and power it on then. Push the middle.
Dustin: All right. So you're in pedal assist one. So if you want to just go ahead and take a little lap through here and around, and then you can demonstrate, show everyone how it goes.
So the 12-inch wheels are cool because it's going to keep the rider lower to the ground. The higher the wheels go, the higher you come off the ground. Also, you can go this way and you can go out there and make a loop. Now, show us the throttle if you want to do just the throttle, and you can steer back over there. And you can make another loop if you want to just do the throttle. Yeah, just, yep. There you go. And you can see you can turn on a dime. Actually, it's like a zero radius. You just have to make sure you negotiate the speeds in tight quarters. Pretty nimble, right?
Maria: It's really quick.
Dustin: Yeah, it's a lot of fun. So let's demonstrate the reverse. So go ahead and flip that button.
Maria: The red butt?
Dustin: And just start pedaling backward. Oh, oh. Hit the throttle.
Dustin: There we go. All right. Now you can stop and then push the red button back and you can come back forward. There you go. You may hear a little bit of squeaking. Sometimes with that, with condensation, we've had a lot of moisture in California, or we have to do a little adjustment. It's not a big deal on a disc break at all, so we'll look into fixing that for the next video. Cool. So if you want to go ahead and hop off, we'll give Jack a little try here. All right. So maybe the seat is a little higher for you. So it's a dual-seat post.
Jack: [inaudible 00:06:18] can change it. Catch.
Dustin: Probably higher than that even, huh?
Jack: [inaudible 00:06:25] higher.
Dustin: Yeah, I think that one. Yeah, that's as high as that goes.
Jack: That'll work.
Dustin: Well here, let's pull this out. Okay. Okay. So you've got a double seat post, so we can get it up here.
Jack: Oh, wow. I've never seen that before.
Dustin: Yeah, so it's going to accommodate more rider heights. Okay. Go ahead. Try that. How's that better?
Dustin: And how about the handlebars for you?
Jack: Yeah, they're fine.
Dustin: Okay. So let's see. So yeah, you're in level one, so if you want to just kind of do the same lap and Jack's six-foot-one and he's 74. Just make sure you take the turn nice and slow. It's different from a bike.
Jack: I love it. It's so stable.
Dustin: Yeah, you can go ahead and make a big loop around there too. And if you want to try the throttle with your left thumb, you can. So getting used to a trike-
Jack: Takes you a while to get...
Dustin: Don't go down here. Don't go down in the dip. Yeah.
Jack: Okay. I get it.
Dustin: Yeah, you just don't have to turn the wheel. That's the difference.
Jack: Yes, that's, yeah. I'm used to leaning.
Dustin: Exactly. Exactly.
Jack: Let me take another lap.
Dustin: Yep. Just stay away from the dip here. There you go. Pretty nimble for a trike though, right?
Jack: Yeah, this is great. I love this.
Dustin: Cool. Jack did great for the first time. We've done a lot of first-time trike riders, and since he's an experienced e-bike rider, it handles differently, right?
Jack: Really different. You don't lean. You just turn the wheel.
Dustin: Exactly. So it's like counterintuitive to everything you've learned riding a regular bicycle. And it's hard when you learn to ride a bike at say, five years old and you get on a, or well, you start with a tricycle, but a lot of people that have been on a bike for 20, 30 years that transitioned to trikes, there's like, there's an hour or two learning period, then you get used to it. But did you guys feel stable, like secure when you were turning and riding?
Jack: Oh, yeah.
Maria: Oh, I felt a hundred percent stable. Yeah. And I loved how smooth it was with the stability.
Dustin: And you said powerful, right?
Maria: Powerful. I mean, really, if you had a lot of groceries, I think you wouldn't have any problems at all.
Jack: A lot of pickups.
Jack: Takes off.
Dustin: In the throttle here?
Jack: Yeah, I love it.
Dustin: Cool. Well, there you go. There's our foldable EasyTransit. We had our two riders over 60 demonstrate, you can see, it is easily adjustable, Jack six one. We could even adjust the seat higher for a rider up to 6’4”, 6’5”. And the handlebars can come up too, and Maria fits just fine. And you can see how easy it is to get on and off. And I'll just demonstrate really quickly before we go.
If you do want to fold it, you're going to unclip it right here and you would just simply pull that apart. And then from there, this can fold in half like that, and you can store it and the handlebars can drop down as well right here. And for the sake of the video though. So if you want to see more details about that, again, check out the other videos on our YouTube channel.
