"With an industrial frame made in the USA and patent pending hinge, which allows the trike to fold or separate, it's easy to take anywhere!"

Aging and physical limitations shouldn't have to mean slowing down or that you can't enjoy cycling.

This built-in-the-USA electric trike with patent-pending design is ultra portable and can be driven effortlessly with the twist of a throttle or a little pedal power, allowing for more physical activity.

With a unique compact design, powerful hub motor, 360-degree turning radius and reverse function, it can maneuver in between small spaces, down hallways or aisles, turn on a dime and level steep hills.

The Electric Liberty Trike is the ultimate mobility solution that allows you to leave your car at home, get around effortlessly and become more active outdoors.

The Liberty Trike is for anyone who wants to ride, more often, with stability and assistance. It can be used in hundreds of scenarios to improve your lifestyle, whether you're at the beach, the park, in the city, around the house or anywhere else!

Liberty Trike gives adults the ability to be more active or to move effortlessly.

Using the electric drive system, riders can be outside more, doing more, moving more. 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.
