As electric bikes take off and become a fun, enjoyable national phenomenon, many riders are also looking into the benefits of electric trikes. These rides offer the freedom of mobility, fun, and ease of riding an e-bike but with more stability. Adults who don’t feel comfortable on a bike can still enjoy an e-trike.
Fat tire e-trikes are also becoming popular. These electric trikes have thicker, tougher rubber wheels, and do well on rougher terrain, backwood trails, and uneven pavement. They’re perfect for urban or rural riding and are rugged, strong, and able to stand up to tougher conditions and bad weather. Let’s take a look at the best fat tire electric trikes, and see which one is best for you.
Daywins MEIGI MG1703
The Daywins MEIGI MG1703 is the perfect ride for city dwellers, and for busy urban workers who need to haul light groceries, supplies, and tools. At $4,600 this ride is beautiful, durable, and ready for anything your day can throw at you.
The 750-watt motor is built into the front wheel hub, protecting it from the elements, and giving you better torque and speed. Between the two rear wheels is a generous cargo compartment, perfect for hauling a backpack, commuter bag, or groceries. The MG 1703 will get you up to 45 miles on a single charge and is safe for riding in traffic, as well as on side roads and bike lanes.
Emojo Caddy Pro
The Emojo Caddy Pro is another great electric trike and is a bit lighter and nimbler than other models at just 70 lbs. It can get up to 35 miles on a charge and can go as fast as 20 miles per hour, making it a great option for commuting, or errands. The 500-watt hub motor gives you a simple, direct-drive ride, and helps to reduce the weight of the e-trike, too.
At $3,200, the Emojo is a slightly more economical ride that still delivers a safe, rugged, and reliable ride in town. It’s best for in-city riding and would work great as a way to commute to the office, or tool around town as you grab a cappuccino. It’s well-built, sleek, and perfect for the beginner as well as novice riders. The back support on the seat is another thoughtful touch, keeping you comfortable and supported as you ride.
Trivel e-Azteca 10.5
The Trivel e-Azteca is a truly well-built, premium e-trike. It comes with a built-in LCD screen, letting you gauge your speed, power assist mode, battery life, and trip distance with one glance. At $7,200, it’s a beautiful, high-tech, and well-built e-trike that can take you just about anywhere an electric mountain bike can go.
Go up to 43 miles on a single charge, and enjoy your e-Azteca right out of the box, as it ships to you fully assembled. It’s a rugged and thoughtfully designed ride, with a built-in cargo basket and a water bottle holder. The 500-watt motor will get you up to 15 miles per hour of speed, and the foldable design means that it can fit easily into most SUVs. It does great in-city as well as in the park and is a great blend of beautiful design, technology, and durability.
