The Adler will be a fully enclosed pedal powered tricycle with an electrical assist motor. Because the Adler will be legally a bicycle, no license or insurance will be required to operate. It’ll travel on bike paths, park on sidewalks. It’ll require no gas, license, registration or insurance.
Electric speed: 20 mph
Speed limits for power assisted bikes are often set by the individual states. In general, most states require that that the maximum speed not exceed 20 mph. For this reason, as well as safety we recommend that you do not exceed the local limits and in no event exceed 20 mph.
Electric range: 30+miles
The Adler could be used totally in electric mode without pedaling. Mileage will vary depending on terrain, person’s weight, and temperature.
Assist range: 40+ miles
You also can pedal with “electric assist”, which means that as the same time you pedal you twist the throttle of the electric motor to aid your pedaling. Pedaling will increase the range of your battery package.
It’ll have a 750 watts, which will be big enough to get you up and down hills and where you need to go with little or no sweat.
Use as a bicycle only
It’ll possible to use the Adler as a regular bicycle, but the Adler is being designed to be electrically assisted.
