A: We consider our electric cycles a great investment, better than even a hybrid car! Here are four reasons why: Health, Cost, Environment, and Fun.

Health: Riding one of our electric trikes is better for your heath than driving a car. Cycling strengthens your heart and lungs without placing unnecessary stress on your joints. It naturally tones the body’s musculature, and remains one of the best cardiovascular exercises that one can do. Our tricycles have a low center of gravity, a wide wheelbase, and are designed to hold your body in a safe, comfortable and relaxed position while you ride.

Cost: When compared with the cost of maintaining a car, our trikes outperform standard automobiles. Our tricycles cost far less then a car to operate, traveling up to 40 miles on a single twelve-cent charge. Compared to the price of operating a car, where one might pay over three dollars a gallon for gasoline, traveling about half the distance, at thirty times the cost!  Our tricycles do not require automotive insurance or a driver’s license to operate. Just put on your helmet, and you’re ready to go!
