IRIS eTrike® Black – hyperfast, supersafe, long range cycling
SUPER FAST – IRIS eTrike® has been developed to be a consumer friendly version of the world’s fastest, human powered bike concepts. The body design is inspired by aerodynamic helmets used for velodrome bike racing. Classified as a pedelec electric tricycle (EAPC road legal with no license or insurance required for age 14+), IRIS includes as standard a restricted 250 watt pedal assist motor that starts as soon as pedalling is detected. High gearing gives the rider extra momentum to continue pedalling from 15.5mph to 30mph. Other motor options are available at checkout for different territories or off-road use (up to 1000 watt).
EXTRA SAFE – Chest height, high level profile attracts attention from other road users. Next generation Quantum Foam EPP body material protects rider (similar to crash helmet tech used for skiing). Three wheel trike format makes riding safer in all weather. LED headlamps, indicator-repeaters & brake lights aid visibility.
CARGO – Lockable rear compartment can carry up to 50 litres. Ideal for personal shopping or business use e.g. Paramedics, express couriers (Fedex®, UPS®, DHL®, DPD®) or food delivery (Amazon Prime®, UberEATS®, Deliveroo®, Foodora®). Custom design body skins available (ideal for company fleet purchase).
EASY TO USE – exceptionally agile hybrid vehicle with go-kart like handling. Trike design means no balancing required. Hub motor automatically starts when pedalling is detected (no throttle required). Cabin includes a universal smartphone dock for GPS, music playback and calory count etc. IRIS includes a built-in rear view camera which streams real-time video to the riders docked iPhone® or Android® device.
ULTRA EFFICIENT – uses approximately 5p of electricity for 50km. 250+ watt hub motor is ultra-efficient using regenerative braking. Low maintenance, 8-speed race bike gearing. Twin hydraulic disc brakes provide max stopping power. Note: discounts of around 42% through Cycle-to-work and other eco initiatives available in some territories (typically £97 per month over 24 months).
WEATHER PROOF – Hinged aviation acrylic canopy protects rider from weather elements. Built-in air vents channel air inside cabin, to keep rider cool through anti-pollution charcoal air filters.
COMFORT – High level upright bucket seat is part of body moulding and has been designed using metric data from proven ergonomic chair layouts. IRIS eTrike® keeps you warm and dry.
