Hit subscribe so you can know all about it. All right, tricycles are a popular category for senior riders or over 50, over 60 riders. Also, those with balance issues or somebody that just wants to tow things around with them, bring stuff with them and not have to worry about balancing on a bike. I personally love tricycles. With the electric version coming out, they're seeing a resurgence in the marketplace.
So before me, I present the best electric tricycle for seniors and riders over 60, and I'm going to explain to you why that is. This is our every journey electric tricycle. Let me walk you through why this is the best electric tricycle for seniors and over 60 riders. Starting off, and by the way, I want to mention real quick before we get into it, we have several other videos of a demo of riders over 60 riding this exact tricycle, taking it uphill so you can see actual riders riding it, and you'll see how it performs for them and get their feedback as well. So go on our YouTube channel and check that out. Reason number one, step through. That's a big, big factor for a lot of riders that may struggle to mount or dismount a bike. I myself also deal with some arthritis in my toes and my knees, so sometimes lifting my leg if I'm stiff is challenging. So with an easy step-through like this, you can board and disboard, mount, and dismount the bike very easily. Great feature for senior over 60 riders.
In addition to that, this tricycle has four custom adjustment points. At sixthreezero, we take comfort and fit to your body very seriously, so we've equipped all of our bikes with four custom adjustment points, so you can get this bike dialed in for maximum comfort to your body. We also have another video detailing exactly how to do that on our YouTube. If you just search in our YouTube channel for fitting your bike to your body you'll find that video. But let me show you. Right here on the seat, we have a tilting point, so you can tilt the seat according to how you like it. We have a raise and a lower here. The seat can be tilted with a 14-millimeter wrench. The seat can be raised with as simple as a quick release. The handlebars is an Allen key. For right here, you can tilt the bars at the angle you see fit, or you can raise and lower them at the angle you see fit.
Why is this so important? Because we want to have maximum comfort for the rider. What this allows is a perfect ergonomic riding position dialed into your body. If you need the handlebars tilted up if you need them raised up. If you need the seat tilted back if you need the seat raised up. You're going to be able to find the best adjustments to take pressure off your back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, everything you name it. Especially as we get older we want to make sure we're relieving the pressure off the points that maybe we've had surgery on or dealing with issues. You can tell when I'm riding here, the bike is fairly well adjusted for me right now. So you can tell my back is totally upright, I'm in an ergonomic riding position. My elbows and my arms are relaxed. One reason for that also is the swooping handlebars that come into your body. You don't have to reach and extend, your arms can be relaxed. As opposed to something that's out here, where you may have to carry more tension in your arms and shoulders. Then you swoop in and go back to your body, providing maximum comfort while you ride.
Now, as I said, as you see fit, you can adjust and dial this inappropriately. Again, the easy mounting and dismounting. Now, the other benefit for seniors and over 60 is the fact that this tricycle can be ridden in three different modes. You can ride it as a normal tricycle with zero electric, you can use the pedal-assist or you can do full throttle, meaning you let the bike do all the work. Now, why is this so great? Many reasons. One, if you need to get exercise or you want to get exercise and you don't want the trike to do the work, you can ride this as a normal trike with no power. Let me show you. Right now there's nothing turned on, I have zero electricity and I can simply move. It doesn't even feel like I'm riding an electric tricycle right now. I'm not using any power and you can see how easy it still is to ride. The benefit is, is that if you so choose to ride this normal, that option is there. If you were to get a non-electric tricycle, you're not going to have the option of using the electric as you see fit.
A benefit to this is get the electric and use it if you want it or don't want it. Now, you have five levels of pedal assist, so one, two, three, four, five. Meaning when you pedal it's going to give you assistance at different one is the lowest output, two is the next highest, so on and so forth. Let's say you've been riding several miles you're tired, but you still want to pedal a little bit, kick on the pedal assist. The bike will help you, but you'll still be propelling the bike to some extent. It allows you to do a hybrid of riding and pedal assist. The benefit of this is if you start throwing things in the basket, and you're using this to get to the pool or around a community or the grocery store, and you start to put 10, 20, 30 pounds in here, the pedal-assist will allow it so that can bear some of the weight and the brunt of it, and you can take some of that off of your body. It's a huge benefit.
Now, thirdly, if you're exhausted from riding or you just want to zoom around somewhere and have a little fun, or you don't want to pedal at all and you want to turn this into a complete mode of transportation. Whether it be like I said in a community, around town, whatever it may be, this can literally now become your vehicle. With the throttle, I'll show you right now. I'm just going to do a little loop here. I just pushed the throttle and I'm off and running. You can hit top speeds of about 15, 16 miles an hour. Now, this has become more than just a tricycle, this has become possibly your primary mode of transportation. It's a great feature. So like I said, the top speed is going to be about 15, 16 miles an hour, depending on the weight of the rider. In terms of the range, if you're riding it in full throttle, you're going to get approximately 20 miles if you're not pedaling off.
If you're using the pedal assist, it's going to vary greatly depending on the rider, and also what level of pedal assist. If you were to stay in about a level three pedal assist, you're going to be able to get probably 30 to 50 miles of range, again depending on the terrain. It's going to provide you with ample range, also depending on how much weight do you have in the basket and things like that. Range is great and the power is great. It's going to do all those things you need it to do to basically turn this into a mode of transportation wherever you want to go. That pretty much sums it up, what we believe to be the best electric tricycle for seniors and over 60.
