Take It Indoors!

Tackle the Steepest Hills!

Operating the Liberty Trike is easy. Simply press the power button to turn the electrical system on. Then choose your level of throttle-on-demand power (1-5). You can then twist the throttle and off you go. Pedaling is always encouraged but not required. As an active mobility solution the Liberty Trike gives you the option to get some physical activity when you want it. This is one of the biggest benefits of the Liberty Trike when compared to a conventional mobility scooter.

Don’t forget, if you get into a tight spot, this electric trike has a speed-limited reverse function. There is a red button on the throttle. When you push it, it will stay depressed down and in this position you’ll be in reverse gear. Twist the throttle and you’ll go backwards; the reverse is “speed-limited”, meaning in reverse the speed is much slower for safety. There is also a parking brake for easily mounting your Liberty Trike and keeping it in place and a large LCD readout with speed controls and battery indicator.

  • Average Consumption: 200watts-300watts @ 11mph / 19wh-28wh per mile
  • Max Torque: 60N-m
  • Torque at cruising speed – max efficiency: 2.8N-m - 4.28N-m

The Liberty Trike is for everyone who wants to ride more often, ride stable and ride with assistance and stability. It can be used in hundreds of scenarios to improve your lifestyle, like at the beach, in big cities, in parks, around the house and anywhere else!

The Liberty Trike is quick at 11.5MPH and it's super tough. It's fun for riders of any age and it's power makes it a workhorse for getting things done; think gathering firewood at a campsite or hauling heavy bags of cement on a job site.

Grandmas can get out and be more active!

Hipsters can style and profile in the city!

 The Liberty Trike is about 95% finished and we say that because we still have some design features we will be adding to make it even better before final production starts. There are a few changes in the frame design and some minor changes to the electrical system that we know backers will appreciate. We plan on sharing those improvements with backers of the campaign as they happen.

The great thing about the Liberty Trike first run is that the frame is being made by Worksman Cycles and any changes to the frame can easily happen in a short amount of time. Also, the final painting happens close to home so getting backers the correct colors (you’ll have 5 colors to choose from), will be easily managed.

The other thing to consider about production and delivery is that Electric Bike Technologies has been making systems and distributing e-bike products since 2008. This is not a direct from China to end user project. This is an experienced electric bike company in the USA taking a lot of pride in producing their first complete electric bike (in this case a trike), and then beating your expectations for delivery, service and after-sale support.

Please consider backing our campaign and improving someone else’s life and your own; The Liberty Trike is the Ultimate GIFT!

Let’s show the world that there are better, smarter, more active options for moving. We appreciate any and all contributions and ask everyone to help us raise awareness. Please share our project by simply telling your friends, sharing on social media and using the Kickstarter share tools.

Thank you for your continued support and for believing in us!

WHY KICKSTARTER?

We are bringing the Liberty Trike to Kickstarter (after a successful crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo) to further prove that the market for electric tricycles is viable, and we’re giving early adopters the exclusive opportunity to reserve one of the very first Liberty Trikes to be produced in the USA with some aggressive savings incentives.

We know we can get it done with your help. We know we can make it last and your support will make a difference!

All of the funds raised during the campaign will be used to increase staff and further leverage existing buying power with suppliers. We have already invested in the research and development and we’ve already produced several Liberty Trikes. There is no question whether we can make the bikes and make them well. The challenge, and where you will be helping us in our efforts by backing our project, is in proving the demand for quality electric adult tricycles backed by a solid warranty and first-class customer service.

The people who back this campaign will be proving to the electric bike industry, and to the biggest producers of adult tricycles, where the real demand is and where the focus should be. This is not your grandfather’s mobility scooter, this is a new approach to mobility and it’s one that individuals of every age and riding ability can use to improve their lives.

We know that the average tricycle rider will be older and, as such, they may not be familiar with Kickstarter. That said, the Liberty Trike would make an awesome gift for the parent or grandparent you want to keep moving!

Electric Bike Technologies has been providing the highest level of customer service and after-sale support since the company started. Today we have expert staff in place supporting our existing conversion system customers. This same staff will be supporting Liberty Trike owners. The Liberty Trike website has LiveChat support.

Risks and challenges

There are always unforeseen obstacles when bringing a new product to market; usually the longer delays come with actual production and then it would be shipping holds as the next likely cause for delays.

Regarding production delays and risks; production of the first run of Liberty Trikes has already started. We know what we have to do and we’ve placed a limit on ourselves for the first run of Liberty Trikes to be certain we can meet the expectations we’re setting. We’ve worked very hard for our reputation over the years for delivering on promises and we don’t expect to start breaking any promises now. We need your help to get the Liberty Trike rolling now but once that process is underway we’ll be using everything we have to make it happen.

We see shipping as a possible risk of course but not one with a long delay time and again, we’ve given ourselves enough room in the timeline to ensure they won’t affect the delivery dates. The other shipping consideration/risk relates to the shipping of hazardous materials, which most e-bike batteries are. This risk has influenced our decision to limit this first run of Liberty Trikes to delivery addresses only inside the contiguous United States. Shipping hazardous outside of the US is much more complicated than receiving and shipping within the US.

We’ve had our fair share of experiences with shipping lithium batteries over the years and it has taught us very well what to do and what not to do. The Liberty Trike LiFePO4 battery pack is UN 38.3 Certified and will be shipped in full compliance with all associated regulations and requirements.
