I have seen this question pop up multiple times, so today, let me answer it. Obviously, I’m not an elderly person, but we have sold many electric tricycles to senior riders. Additionally, I have done many test rides. There are also videos on our channel of other elderly people riding electric tricycles, so today I will give you my opinion. Now, we refer to it as a three-wheeled electric bike, also known as an electric tricycle or a trike, regardless of how you want to call it. It basically refers to a bicycle with three wheels.

Are 3 wheel bikes good for seniors

Now, it is difficult to give a general answer and say, yes, three-wheeled bikes are great for the elderly. It ultimately comes down to the needs of the rider. So, can three-wheeled bikes be great? Yes, of course. I will explain to you what I believe a typical rider, a senior rider, would be an excellent candidate for a three-wheeled electric bike.

Now, the benefit of having a three-wheeled electric bike is that you don’t have to worry about balancing. So, if you are a senior rider and are concerned about tipping over, falling, or just maintaining balance on a two-wheeled bike, then the beauty of a tricycle is that it is safer in that sense because you can keep moving without having to balance. You can sit here, start pedaling whenever you want, or in fact, you can just use the throttle.

So, it is a good option for senior riders who are concerned about balance. Now, apart from the elderly, this is great for anyone who cares about balancing issues, not just elderly people, but today, we are talking about senior riders here. Now, if you are a senior rider and balancing is not a problem for you, and you don’t care about that, then a two-wheeled bike is also a good option. However, if you also plan to carry a lot of weight, want to ride with your dog, or want to run errands, then a three-wheeled electric bike is great for senior riders who want to use it for tasks. It will be easier and more straightforward to haul things.

We actually just made another video where we were able to bring 845 pounds on this tricycle, despite the fact that it didn’t move very fast. But if you are a senior rider and you want to go grocery shopping, you want to use it as a practical mode of transportation, you ride in the city, pick up mail, buy groceries, whatever it may be, go to the swimming pool. You can put a lot of weight here, and the benefit is that it won’t affect your balance. On a two-wheeled bike, if the weight distribution leans in any direction, it becomes harder to balance.

With a three-wheeled bike, you can put it in the rear basket. You have two wheels, and you don’t have to worry about balancing at all. Additionally, you can have a front basket here to carry even more weight and more items on your rides. So, the beauty of it is that it doesn’t affect your balance. Now, if you add some weight, the bike may pull in any direction, but you can counter-steer. It’s really not a problem at all. So, if you are a senior rider who wants to run errands and use it as a means of transportation, a three-wheeled bike, a three-wheeled electric bike, is also a good choice if you have balance issues.

Another thing I want to mention is that if you are generally concerned about safety and as you age, falling becomes an issue, a three-wheeled electric bike is great for that. It will prevent falls or make them less likely because you will have three wheels and balancing becomes easier. Now, another benefit of having a three-wheeled electric bike, especially this one, is its comfort. It offers an ergonomic riding position. So, you can keep your back upright, have comfortable arm positions, and no tension in your back or shoulders. This will really relax your muscles, and there won’t be any pressure on your shoulders or wrists.

So, that’s another thing; you don’t want to be sore for days after riding a bike, and you don’t want to lean forward. The beauty of this three-wheeled electric bike is in its ergonomics. My arms feel comfortable, my back feels comfortable, and it’s easy to ride. Furthermore, it’s straightforward to mount and dismount with a step-through frame. You can also get it here even if you can’t swing your leg over. You can sit down, slide to the right. So, in my opinion, a three-wheeled electric bike may be a special choice for some elderly people.
