We stand behind what we build.  Every Outrider is assembled by hand in Fletcher, NC by our highly skilled assembly team.  Before we bring a product to the market we prototype it extensively, and then take those prototypes and torture test them in the most grueling and brutal scenarios possible to make sure they're going to stand up to serious use.  And when we say warranty, we mean it - in the unlikely scenario you do need to warranty a part all you need to do is call us at 828-654-7555 where you'll immediately speak with one of our team members at the shop.  We'll pinpoint the issue, request proof of issue, and then do whatever needs to happen to fix that part and get you back out there riding.

These are important safety checks and very important to help prevent accidents, bodily injury to the rider, and shortened useful product life cycle of a Outrider USA bicycle or frameset. Failure to follow this warning may result in catastrophic failure of the component or tricycle, which may lead to serious personal injury or death.

If any provision is found unenforceable, only that provision shall be stricken and all others shall apply.

Not every component is designed for every conceivable use.  Broken parts resulting from riding performed on surfaces or locations not intended for the particular model can shorten the useful product life cycle of the trike and invalidate warranty of certain parts.  Broken parts resulting from performing jumps, tricks, riding down stairs, aggressive riding, riding in severe climate, riding with excessively heavy loads, commercial riding and all other types of nonstandard use will also shorted the useful product life cycle and invalidate warranty of certain parts.

Every Outrider ships fully assembled in a custom crate.  Within 5 business days or less.  Please be aware that this is shipping time, not including build time.  We customize each build per the customer's request, so this shipping time is in addition to current build times.  Most often, your Outrider will be shipped LTL "Less Than Truckload", which means it will arrive on an 18 wheeler.  If your delivery location is inaccessible by an 18 wheeler it is your responsibility to notify us prior to shipment so that we can make alternate delivery arrangements.  Scissors and/or wire cutters are recommended to disassmble the crate, and remove your Outrider from the crate. Customers are responsible for the cost of shipping.

It’s also a blast to ride. If you don’t think 40 mph sounds like much, consider that, that’s about how fast you’d be traveling after a five-story freefall. Riding the Alpha is probably about as visceral. - Ezra Dyer, Yahoo Autos, Popular Mechanics, etc.

 The only electric bike ever to receive a score of 100 out of 100. - Find the Best

"What can I say... these trikes are totally awesome. This counts as my favorite test ride of any production electric bike ever. This is also my longest and farthest test ride. Outrider trikes are so much fun to ride, that anyone spending a day on one in the right terrain on a good day will probably not forget that day for the rest of their life. Everyone should have one..." -
