It's a world first! We now offer the Pashley Tri-1 tricycle with electric assist. No hill or headwind can stop you now!
Our electric assist motor and battery installed offers a speedy recharge, up to 60km in range, an accelerator boost and all the optional power you could ever wish for to make your outing easy.
The Tri-1 is a marriage of classic three-wheeled design with the very best modern componentry. It comes complete with wide ratio 7 speed gears, which means you can tackle even the steepest of hills and keep up with the pace of city traffic. Not only this but the dual braking system, comprising of a classic calliper brake and a powerful enclosed hub brake, gives you the control you need whilst the chrome riser handlebars puts you in an upright position for the best visibility and comfort imaginable.
There is even the option of a folding frame for easy transportation and storage, or a fixed gear model (with the benefit of a fully enclosed chaincase) for simple and worry-free riding. Add to this luxuries like the full mudguards and a sprung gel saddle and you have the perfect companion that can withstand the rigours of everyday riding, offering an unrivalled sense of stability that only a tricycle can provide.
We'll even give you a FREE cargo basket for your groceries or best little canine friend, and a free front handlebar basket for your water bottle or house keys.
Folding frame option: A useful feature to reduce overall length where storage or transport space is at a premium. This option also includes quick release fittings on the handlebar stem to allow easy lowering and positioning of the bars to achieve the most compact package. The option of the hinged frame allows the trike to be folded quickly for easy storage or transportation, with the folded trike fitting into most cars. A propstand is provided to keep the trike upright when folded. Approximate dimensions when folded: W=80cm, L=100cm, H= 68cm (17" frame) or 63cm (15" frame), with saddle removed.
Wide ranging 7-speed indexed derailleur gears: with easy-twist grip changer, they allow you to glide along flatter terrain with ease and climb inclines at a gentle pace.
Secure parking brake: with an easily accessible activation button on the brake lever, it keeps the tricycle stationary when parked so you don't need to worry about it rolling away!
Reflectors for added visibility: front, rear, and pedal reflectors all help to keep you safer on the road at night.
Effective front double-braking with hub and v-type brake combination: A powerful braking system that provides dependable stopping power time after time. Combines the all-weather dependability of a hub brake with the bite and power of a v-type rim brake.
