E-TrikeKit™ Adult Tricycle Conversion Kit
with Heavy-Duty (Low Speed / High Torque) 500w Direct-Drive Hub Motor
36 Volt 9 Amp Hour (AH) Lead-Acid Battery Pack and 2 Amp Charger
The E-TrikeKit electric tricycle conversion kit with 36v lead-acid battery pack is specifically made with increased pulling power for heavier adult tricycles.
Who's it for? This kit is built specifically for upright adult tricycles. The heavy-duty direct-drive motor is designed for increased torque and a lower top speed. This kit also has speed-limited reverse (30% of forward top speed). Paired here with a more affordable lead-acid battery pack, this trike conversion system offers an economical option for those seeking moderate performance for shorter distances.
The E-TrikeKit™ is designed specifically for adult tricycles.
Upgraded in 2015 to include our LCD dashboard display, 36v/48v 12FET controller, speed-limited reverse function, and locking e-brake handles, the system is easy to install and operate and gives the rider total control over top speeds and power output. This trike specific conversion kit allows you to turn any conventional 3-wheel adult tricycle into an electric-assisted adult mobility tricycle.

Sealed Lead-Acid (often referred to as "SLA") batteries provide a reliable battery option at a low price point. SLA battery packs are the most affordable option but they are also the heaviest option. Lead-Acid batteries have a much lower weight to power ratio than lithium batteries and far less the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The performance of lead-acid is low; as the pack is spent, the performance is lessened. The lead-acid battery costs less initially, but over time, the "cost-per-cycle" is almost double the cost of lithium. SLA packs should be charged immediately after each use.
Choosing Your Wheel Size: You can find your wheel size written on your tire. Available size options for this conversion kit are: 16", 20", 24", 26", 700c & 29er. Acceptable tire widths for the E-BikeKit rims: 1.15"(29mm) - 2.25"(57mm).
Note: our kits include parts to fit a wide variety of bikes, but do not fit every bike without modification or extra parts. Our representatives are available to help with compatibility questions and make recommendations on additional parts that you may need.

*Please note that SLA battery packs are rated for 150-250 charge cycles. This means that their normal lifespan can be from 5-9 months or regular use. Irregular charging, deep discharges, and storage without maintenance charging can limit the life of an SLA battery. Even within the 6-month warranty period, SLA batteries that have been used heavily are not eligible for warranty.
