Electric Power Assist: Less effort, greater range
Think of our T-250 trike as a T-150 on steroids. The same great pedaling performance and ride of the T-150, plus a supplemental 37 volt electric motor and battery pack that give new meaning to the word “zip”. The T-250 is truly versatile. You can start out on your ride pedaling, then decide half way to let the motor share the work with you with a mere twist of the electric twist grip. With repeated use, your strength, stamina, and fitness will improve, so you might find yourself using the electric assist less and less. Or, you can forgo pedaling altogether and go all-electric. With a lot of battery juice neatly tucked under the seat, performance is sprightly and the average cruising range is 30 miles or more.
Ti-Trikes is the first company in the world to design, develop, and build a power-assisted recumbent tricycle. We did this for one simple reason; to make cycling accessible to a broader range of people. With electric propulsion, riders of all ages, shapes, sizes, and ability levels can now be out on the roads riding along with their friends and family. The T-250’s stable trike design combined with power assist make it ideal for people with physical disabilities, including MS, Cerebral Palsy, stroke, and TBI. Ti-Trikes can also help customize your trike with adaptive fittings and accessories, if needed. And Ti-Trikes is one of the few tricycle manufacturers to use expensive NASA foam for its seats. Originally developed by NASA for the space program, NASA foam contains millions of open cells that mold to each person’s body to evenly distribute pressure. The result: dramatically reduced back and backside pain….and a lot more comfort.
The T-250 shares many of the same great comfort and performance features with its other Ti-Trike siblings, including a tadpole design, lightweight yet robust titanium frame, smooth running gear system, excellent brakes, and outstanding handling. Steering is stable and responsive at all speeds. The T-250 is available in two different frame sizes (40″ – 42″ wheelbase) to suit almost any sized rider.
