Recumbent Electric Bicycle vs. Trike

Outrider e-trikes also offer more power and control than a majority of recumbent electric bicycles. Each Outrider trike comes with both electric and pedal powered drive systems. You control your ride by choosing from three modes: pedal only, electric only, or a combination of pedal-electric. You control the amount of power coming from the electric motor system by a twist grip throttle.
