All right. Today, I'm going to share with you the top five things you must know about electric trikes in 2022. But before I do, hit that subscribe button below, stay in touch with us here at sixthreezero. Be the first to know about all the new content we put out, new product releases, and, of course, the giveaways and contests we do for bikes, eBikes, and accessories. You will want to be a part of it.
All right. Electric trikes are a lot of fun. Trikes in general are fun. You have three wheels. You don't have to worry about balance and it just is another form of transportation. I like to have a trike in addition to my bikes to do errands, to bring things places. I love them. They're so much fun.
What are the top five things you must know? Well, number one, no balance is required. Now, seems like an obvious one, but it's true. On a tricycle and an E-tricycle, you don't need to balance at all. Now, in the sixthreezero EVRYjourney electric trike 250W, you can see the beautiful colors we have here. No balance is required. Just go on up. You can sit here and the bike just kind of sits. You can really also dictate with the pedals. If you go forward, use your brakes. You don't have to move even. Getting off, you just hit the brakes. It's super easy.
In conjunction with no balance required, electric trikes are just very easy. That's one and two right there. What I mean by easy is, number one, it's easy to get on and off. Well, especially if you have a step-through. But you just get right on, push on the pedal and you're up, and moving is even easier. Let me go ahead and just strap on my helmet to make sure I'm safe. Now, when I say easy, it's truly that easy. To ride, just start pedaling. No need to balance. No need to do anything. But we're talking about electric trikes here, they're even easier. Right now, I just kick in my pedal assist. I'm barely doing a thing, let me tell you.
If you want to see how even easier it is, I have a throttle here. Just pull that. I'm doing nothing and I'm moving. I'm not balancing. I'm not concerned about balance. The number one thing you must know about electric trikes, no balance is required. Number two, they are super easy. Easy to brake, right here. Pull the brake and you stop and getting off super easy also. What else is easy about an electric trike? Well, powering on and off your motor right here. Also, charging it is very easy. Let me show you. You can, right here, take the battery off. Your charging port is... Sorry, let me put that right here. Your charging port is right here. You just plug that into a normal outlet at home.
What else is easy? Pull your seat out on this model and you can just pop your battery right off. Just like that. See how easy that is. You can just click that back on, put your seat back on and you're off and running. If you want to bring the battery to your house to charge or if you drive to work, you can bring the battery up to work and charge it while you are working.
Number three. Power is not always what you need on a tricycle. This is a 250 Watt tricycle, which is going to give you more than enough power. But sometimes more power on electric tricycles can be dangerous in some aspects. Because of the three wheels, sometimes you just have to learn to get your weight going in the correct direction. But with the three wheels, safety becomes a little bit more of an issue just because, on the two wheels, you can go a lot faster and it's conducive to being upright with the two wheels going. You can steer and turn much easier.
Now, in a tricycle, it's easy. You just have to learn to get used to the weight rotation as you turn. But more power is not always the answer. Again, this is a 250 Watt motor. I'm a 220-pound man. You can see when I push the throttle, it gets me going with no problem. Now, having a 750 Watt or 500 Watt motor on an eBike really depends on the type of riding you're going to do. It's not just more power for the sake of more power. If you're doing around the community riding, casual riding, short rides, 250 Watts is more than enough power. This goes for all eBikes, more power is not always the answer. Just because a car can go 200 miles an hour doesn't make it better, it just means it can go faster. We like the 250 Watt on a trike because it'll still carry things up hills. It'll still get people up hills. You can actually look on our channel. We have video of this very trike going up a hill, with some over 60 riders taking it uphill. Number three, more power is not always the answer.
Number four. Turning on a trike is different than turning on a bicycle. Turning on an electric trike is different than turning on a regular trike. When I say turning, I mean turning, not turning on. On a tricycle, when you turn, you always want to shift your upper body but keep your rear planted on the seat and that's just going to help keep the wheels in the back balanced. You're shifting this way. You're leaning this way. Your butt is planted and your upper body is shifting. The important thing to remember though, on E-trike, is why it's different than a regular trike, ideally, you don't accelerate into the turn. You accelerate out of the turn. That's going to help manage the balancing.
Come into the turn, you want to back off, then you turn through it, then you turn. That's really important with managing the acceleration. You turn into it, then you accelerate. Riding a trike is definitely different than riding a bicycle. For some people, it does take some getting used to because most people have never ridden a trike or a lot of people have never ridden a trike, or the last time they rode a trike was when they were very little. A lot of people are trained specifically on how to ride a two-wheel bike. That's what we learn to do when we're younger. Nobody really shows us the proper way on how to ride a trike or, for that matter, an electric trike. You can also check out our videos. I do some videos showing how to turn on an electric trike, also how to ride a regular trike. Those are super helpful.
All right. The number five thing you should know about electric trikes 2022, no surprise, they are so much fun. Now, maybe you were expecting something different for number five, but I say that because they really are a lot of fun. They're so much different than bicycles, and there's so much you can do with them. How much you can carry back here, how much stuff you can put in there. It's so simple and fun. Again, you can have your regular bike or your regular eBike, but these trikes are just a different kind of experience where you really don't have to think about anything and the bike will do all the work and all the balancing. Especially on this one, you can hit top speeds of 20 miles an hour in pedal-assist or 15 with the throttle.
It's hard to describe. I always have a smile on my face and I would just say, if you're on the fence about it, do it. Get an electric trike because it is so much fun. There you have it.
