More About Electric Assist on Recumbent Trikes

If you want to enjoy the experience of a recumbent trike but you have issues when it comes to keeping it going with your own leg power, electric assist may be precisely what you need. With an electric recumbent trike, you can enjoy longer rides and lengthen your workout times with a little boost from an electric motor. With electric assist, you can still enjoy all the benefits that a recumbent trike has to offer, but you don't have to miss out on conquering rough terrain, hills, or longer distances because you can get a boost when you need it.

As the name suggests, electric assist helps you out when you need a little extra power, but it doesn't use the electric motor all the time. You still have to use your own muscles and can still get a great workout. If you're getting older and haven't been able to ride in the same areas you did before, or you're having trouble keeping up to your group, an electric recumbent trike is a great solution. Electric assist lets you exert yourself as much as you'd like while making it easier to travel the routes and trails you choose. There's less stress on your body with an electric recumbent trike because you get to choose when to push harder and when to ease off and let the electric motor take over.
