The original, classic Ridekick trailer system continues to be an economical favorite among Ridekick riders. It’s perfect for the 5 – 8 mile commute, a trip to the grocery store, or to meet up with friends for lunch. It effectively takes the edge off the ride when there is wind or a hill that would otherwise make you choose the car. It takes you beyond your limits!
The 12Ah sealed lead-acid (SLA) battery will take you about 8 – 10 miles on a charge. Distance estimates are based on industry standard variables: 160 lb rider, 20 lb cycle, flat terrain, 70 degree temperature, no wind, cycle tires inflated to maximum, and one non-stop path.
If that range isn’t enough for your trips, try adding a second SLA battery. It will extend your range to 16 – 20 miles on a charge. You can make that a seamless ride by adding a Y-cable to put your batteries in parallel (no need to stop and swap the depleted battery for the charged battery!)
Every Ridekick power trailer system comes complete with trailer, electric motor, controller, throttle and hitch plate, and the battery of your choice. It comes ready to assemble (10 minutes), install on your bike/trike (10 minutes) and hit the roads!
