The Adler will be a fully enclosed pedal powered tricycle with an electrical assist motor. Because the Adler is legally a bicycle, no license or insurance is required to operate. It can travel on bike paths, park on sidewalks and requires 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 can be used totally in electric mode without pedaling. Mileage varies 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.
The motor produces 750 watts, which is 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’s possible to use the Adler as a regular bicycle, but the Adler was designed to be electrically assisted.
