Catrike 5.5.9

Catrike's latest offering is a folding touring trike, designed to take you wherever you want to go. Experience high performance and spirited long-distance rides with extraordinary comfort. Standard color: Atomic Orange; other colors can be ordered. Check with Basically Bicycles about color availability.

A BionX Electric Motor Kit makes your Catrike 5.5.9 recumbent trike even more convenient and fun. This wonderful upgrade offers both a traditional throttle and power-assist technology along with extended range for the ideal balance of pedaling and power. With BionX's proportional assist, you just set the power level on the easy-to-use backlit console and start pedaling. The harder you pedal, the more power the motor adds so you go faster and further with less effort. Or you can use the throttle for an instant burst of speed anytime. And, when the time comes to head downhill, BionX's regenerative braking uses the motor to help slow you down while recharging the battery for a sweet energy-efficient bonus!
