Discerning customers who appreciate quality and true benefits will love this new 48V model: Here are its main features and benefits
Step Through height is only 20cm at the lowest point
Many of our clients want a minimum step through height. Not just a step through. Compare our tricycle to others and see the position of the bottom bar It is well below the chain wheel centre. This requires a more expensive Aircraft grade Aluminium frame. Our frame has a total loading maximum of 185Kg
Strong, double walled, machined face aircraft grade aluminium wheels
People bring cheap brand tricycle wheels to us with severe buckling. We repair them with better quality rims that can handle the sideways thrust exerted when turning a tricycle. We chose to fit top quality wheels to The i-TRi Euro 48.
Shimano Nexus Internal gears
In our opinion Internal gears are a major benefit for tricycles. They require almost no maintenance, are simple to shift (if you can work the switch on a ceiling fan you can operate these gears) and can be changed while the tricycle is stationary. Imagine that you have pulled up to a sudden stop and are in a high gear. Simply select gear 1 and off you go again. You cannot do this with derailleur or external gears.
The three stage PAS (pedal activation system) is like a cruise control for a tricycle. When you pedal the motor operates in 3 separate speed/power modes. Throttle control is only legal in Australia on 200W motor electric bikes and tricycles. Our motors are High torque 250W so a start assist/walking throttle feature replaces the throttle with a maximum speed of 6 Kph.
48V 10Ah Battery 480Wh
The battery is a Samsung Lithium Ion 48V 10Ah and will give you approximately 50km to 70Km of assisted riding, yet only Weighs 3.3Kg. We upgraded to 48V to aid hill climbing and complimented it with a max torque 45Nm Bafang motor. This is plenty for most customers and is as far as we can go within the legal requirements for electrically assisted cycles.
We selected Tektro hydraulic disc brakes for the front wheel and Shimano Roller Brake for the rear these provide smooth efficient braking in all conditions and require little to no adjustment and maintenance.
Our supplier is a Chinese manufacturer but their customer base is European. This is good for us because all the hard work is done. They understand the European fanatical attention to quality and durability above price. At Blind Freddy we place quality and customer satisfaction well ahead of price. After nine years it must be working because we are still here and our business is growing.
Try before you buy
We prefer that our customers come and try before they buy, particularly for a tricycle because they are not as easy to ride as you may think. If you cannot come to our Brendale shop please talk to us first about the differences between tricycles and bicycles.
If then you decide that a Tricycle is for you we can deliver it to you for free within 40km of our shop or you can collect it
Eighty percent assembled
Most people including bicycle shops hate assembling tricycles. We can ship the i-TRi Euro 48V 80% Assembled
All that is required is to fit the head stem, front wheel, front mudguard and basket.
