With the kit installed on the 24" Tri-Rider it can cruise at up to 15 mph.
A 26" or 700C bicycle wheel will allow for a slightly higher top speed depending upon terrain.
Generally, larger wheels give a higher top speed while the smaller wheels have more hill climbing ability.
You can pedal assist at any time and by pedal assisting the bike/trike will have a longer range.
Depending upon conditions, speed, pedal assistance and battery size you can travel from 10-30 miles with the rechargeable battery pack.
Some customers have ordered a second battery pack to double the range.
The twist throttle has a built in battery strength indicator to help you judge the battery condition while riding.
The included battery charger has a light indicator to let you know when it is fully recharged.
Recharging the battery pack usually takes several hours depending upon how drained they became.
The electric kits are street legal in almost all jurisdictions.
For battery power the switch must be on and the twist throttle opened.
For exercise the rider can pedal at any time whether you are using the electric motor or not.
Depening on your trike, under or in read basket are typical battery install locations.
