TerraTrike, the leading U.S. recumbent trike manufacturer, announced the release of the new Rambler E.V.O., a revolutionary electric-assist recumbent trike. Just as the TerraTrike Rover transformed the industry in 2010 and became the largest selling recumbent trike in the world, the E.V.O.’s functionality, ease of use and price is poised to set a new benchmark for all electric-assist trikes.

Based off the popular Rambler model, the E.V.O. (short for Electric Vehicle Option) uses a 750-watt, 5-phase motor – a first in the recumbent industry – made by Falco eMotors. Integrated into the rear wheel hub, the motor provides a seamless boost to pedaling through an embedded torque sensor. Falco design is light weight, whisper quiet, and gives extended range, high power, efficiency and torque.

“The beauty of this trike is that you simply turn it on and ride,” said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike. “We’ve figured out the ideal torque setting and assist level so that it’s very predictable and optimized for assistance and range – up to 60 miles on a charge. However, if you want to tweak the setup, the additional accessories will let you unlock even more capabilities.”

Additional accessories – the console, throttle, and plus-minus switch – allow the rider to adjust assistance levels, put the motor into a regenerative mode to charge the battery during long descents, or activate the “crawl” function – also a first in the industry – which is intended to get the trike rolling from a stop and engage a reverse gear for backing up. An Android-compatible app is currently available to customize the motor setup from your smartphone. The iOS app will be released soon.

“We’ve been working on this for over two years with the Falco team,” said Yonker, “and we couldn’t be happier with the result. The E.V.O. represents the next step for recumbents – getting our customers out for longer rides, taking the overall triking experience to a new level.”

Offered in a bold electric yellow and black paint finish, the E.V.O. ($2999 MSRP) will be available through all authorized TerraTrike dealers in late July. More information can be found on the TerraTrike website at www.TerraTrike.com.
