Raleigh Tristar iE Video Review - $2.6k Premium Electric Trike
The Raleigh Tristar iE is a purpose-built electric trike with integrated cables, a low mounted battery with a secondary slot to double your range, and a mid-drive motor that's powerful and efficient. Beautiful chrome fenders and a paint-matched chain cover keep you clean and dry, a large metal basket offers plenty of storage space, deep step-thru frame is easy to mount. Measuring ~31 inches wide, this e-trike can fit through most doorways and plastic axle caps help reduce damage if it bumps into walls, comfortable saddle, ergonomic grips, adjustable handlebar position. You have to bend down and reach around to turn the battery on, the bike doesn't come with a throttle and the aftermarket part isn't comfortable to use for me, more expensive than the majority of competing products.
