U.S. recumbent trike manufacturer TerraTrike has announced the release of the new Rambler E.V.O, an electric-assist recumbent trike.
Based around the Rambler model, the E.V.O. – short for Electric Vehicle Option – uses a 750-watt, five-phase motor made by Falco eMotors. Integrated into the rear wheel hub, the motor provides a boost to pedaling through an embedded torque sensor. The Falco design is lightweight, quiet and gives extended range.
“The beauty of this trike is that you simply turn it on and ride,” said TerraTrike marketing director Jeff Yonker. “We’ve figured out the ideal torque setting and assist level so that it’s very predictable and optimized for assistance and range – up to 60 miles on a charge. However, if you want to tweak the setup, the additional accessories will let you unlock even more capabilities.”
Offered in electric yellow and black paint finish, the E.V.O. will be available through all authorized TerraTrike dealers in late July.
