UNIQUE E-TRIKE DESIGN

Design

Our trikes have a uniquely low load platform for easier loading and safer handling. Our small front wheel is very robust and gives sweet handling with a tight turning circle.

Reliable last mile delivery e-trike

Chassis

Our trike is not designed traditionally. We have instead embraced proven automotive technology by making the cargo box an integral part of the chassis, this is called monocoque design.

Being designed specifically for the last-mile couriers the e-cargo trike is not a compromised multi-purpose vehicle.

Our chassis is very strong and simple but remains light as we use aircraft quality steel.

The lower coach-built panels are made from aluminium for lightness and each one is bonded and riveted for additional strength and rigidity.

Excellent build quality

Drivetrain

Iceni trikes weigh in as some of the lightest available. Being lighter the load on the drivetrain reduces which, in turn, increases the life of all components.

The lightweight wheels, tyres, hubs, and chains give fast acceleration by reducing any unnecessarily heavy rotating parts.

Putting the electric motor in the front wheel means it is only the rider’s force that drives the rear wheels so wear on the drivetrain is minimised. As the rider’s power goes through the differential the drive is split to each rear wheel, so wear is also halved on each final chain drive.

We use the best e-bike chains available, and all parts are selected to give the best performance with long service periods. The cost of ownership is low, and your local cycle shop or mobile mechanic can help to keep your trike on the road every day.

Ride Performance and Safety

The less weight the better. The low centre of gravity made possible by removal of the rear axle has allowed us to lower the cargo floor by 20cm.

This offers a significant improvement to the stability and rideability, resistance to tipping over in fast corners. It also lowers the cargo box roof by 20cm affording the rider a clear line of sight to the rear without compromising the 1.5 cubic meter of cargo space. Heavy goods placed in the lowered cargo bay make the trike even more ‘planted’ in corners.

A front 16” moped wheel with improved fork design enhances the manoeuvrability and affords greater control.

Cargo cage and ladder chassis provides the rider with greater side impact protection.
