Why People Love The Compass

Innovation at its best. Compass is one of the only electric trikes on the market featuring a rear differential offering rear-wheel drive of both rear wheels for maximum stability and handling.

Never worry about range again, as the Compass offers 40 mile range by default and is dual-battery ready with a pre-installed battery dock and module, ready to double your range if needed.

Unparalleled performance that only a mid-drive motor can offer you combined with a throttle-on-demand so you can pedal as much or as little as you wish.

Three Wheels for Stability

The EVELO Compass is one of our best sellers, and has been successful due to its build quality, power, and EVELO's reputation for quality.

If you're not comfortable riding a two wheel bicycle, or just want as much cargo capacity as possible, an electric tricycle is a great choice.

Stability & Easy Access

Stability is important on a tricycle, so a sturdy frame is the first building block for the best trike possible. EVELO engineers have designed the Compass to offer the lowest point of entry possible, making it easy to get on and off the bike for both men and women.

Our step-through frame has additional reinforcements for the strongest and safest construction possible. Take your time, get comfortable on the saddle, and begin your journey.

Two Wheel Drive Differental

Traction is important on tricycles, since the weight of the rider is distributed between three wheels, there is less weight on each wheel. Front wheel drive trikes tend to peel out in loose terrain or wet roads, as do one wheel rear drive tricycles.

Read More

The Compass has true two wheel drive, with the power from the mid drive motor going equally to both rear wheels. This means more traction, safer turning, and a more stable ride overall.

Up to 80 Miles of Range

The Compass includes a large 48V 10.5AH battery which provides up to 40 miles of range, which is great for most riders. If you need more range or plan to utilize the throttle more often, you can purchase an additional battery to double your range.

Read More

The Compass is dual battery ready, so you can easily double your range to 80+ miles per charge. You can install and run them both batteries simultaneously for a seamless experience. No need to stop and swap batteries.

Note: Spare Compass batteries are currently out of stock and will ship as soon as they are availa

Mid Drive Motor & 3 Speed Shifter

The Compass features a powerful Mid Drive motor for as much power and climbing ability as one could ever need.

The power goes through the drivetrain and connects to the three speed hub, which then connects to the rear differential.

The Bafang BBS2 motor has been through the paces, and is the perfect power plant for the Compass tricycle, as it's simple, reliable, and powerful.

Handlebar Throttle, Fenders, & Lights

The Compass comes with a throttle on the handlebar, giving you power-on-demand anytime you need it. We also include full length fenders and integrated lighting right out of the box.

Read More

Our thumb throttle makes it easy to just push your finger to give you the extra power you need to motor up the hill, or accelerate from a stop.

It's gives you peace of mind that you can use the throttle to get home if you're ever too tired.

The Compass also comes with full fenders making them perfect for blocking the mud, water, and grime that you encounter while out riding.

The best part is the fenders are already installed. You don't need to buy them separately or even have to install them yourself.

"The Evelo Compass is far more fun and capable than we were initially imagining..."

"...the Compass is a great option for those who want to enjoy a picnic at the park and need to bring lunch and small dog with them! The motor was strong enough for us to climb all the hills we tested it on, and it was also decently quiet while doing so. With a ton of storage space, power, and stability, the Compass will go pretty much wherever you please...."

Common Questions & Videos

FAQs

Is the Compass Tricycle a good choice for me?

If you’re looking for the best electric assist tricycle on the market, look no further. The Compass has the most powerful motor, extended range battery, a step-through frame, comfortable upright riding position, two wheel drive, a 3 speed transmission, and a large basket. It’s got it all.

Does the Compass have enough power for my terrain?

Yes. While you may notice this model is rated at 500W vs. the 750W rating of other models, keep in mind that this specific model is geared very low, so in first gear the Compass can tackle the steepest hill with the largest riders and heaviest payloads. It’s designed with torque and power in mind, and not for top speed.

Will I fit properly on the Compass?

The Compass adult trike can be adjusted to fit a very large range of riders thanks to its unique frame and seatpost design. Take a closer look at our sizing chart and specifications on the product page. A great way to compare this to your existing bike is to measure your current saddle height straight down to the ground - this gives you a real number to compare to the specs on our website. If this measurement is over 30” - you will fit comfortably on the Compass tricycle.

I knew what I was buying...

I am happy with the purchase it is an ok smaller adult trike. I have been riding a T-326 Husky for sometime I am 6'2" almost 300# man, and I needed a industrial type 26" tire trike not only for weight (600# rated) but for comfort. I have been looking at the Evelo Compass for several years, and when the price hit 3k felt it was worth that price. I am modifying my T-326 for longer runs so I need a second trike for transportation, I can no longer drive for health reasons so is my only way around town. My goal was to have a trike I felt safe leaving town, even the 10 or 20 mile range, and returning. The Evelo Compass is not it, below is my review please remember my size, and to add this is a hilly open area (windy) in all the trike is well built, and probably would serve many very well.

1.) Putting the trike together was very easy, what they don't show is that you will have to air the tires, and charge the battery mine was at 62% tire pressure did not register but there was some. This is not uncommon in all delivered bikes. The pedal assist and or speedometer reader cable on the front fork pulls when the steering is almost full turn I'm a bit concerned this could be a problem in the future. I used wire cutters to cut wire ties etc. I chipped the powder coat on basket pretty easily.

2.) The battery would not charge past 95% I used the charger that came with it, and another that green lit as soon as I plugged it in. The first day I took it .9 of a mile with 2 hills, the lights were on, and it went to 86%, that spooked me a bit. I left the battery plugged in for 24 hrs. It green lit within an hr. and still stayed at 95%.

3.) I had to change seats (I'm a big guy) I prefer solid/single piece seat posts but this one is ok. I had left the battery inside, and checked charge was green lit still showed 95% I went 1.2 miles very flat, and level tried peddle assist (which I like) about half way on throttle. I did get up to full throttle approx. 18 mph for a short distance was at 88% when returned. Also a very calm day (wind really matters).

4.) The differential makes some noise, not bad noise yet it's there. The main reason I purchased this trike was for the differential, but unless you are very agile with the acceleration it makes little difference in the turns. I will leave my T-326 as a single wheel drive.

Summation: This is a very good trike my only complaint is the battery size, and life to include cost. I do have a second coming which will make me feel much more secure using it in town but I would not use it on long hill climbing rides. The motor is torquey it will lift the front wheel if you tap the throttle, but honestly not a whole lot better climbing than my front wheel direct drive which I don't have to worry about chain problems.

Update: I have gone as far as I feel comfortable on a full charge. The percentage jumps up, and down quite a bit, and zeroed at one point using the throttle. Using the throttle really takes a lot of power. It was at 4% when I stopped came back to 13% while I got my camera out. I have seen this in all ebike systems but not quite so much difference. As you can see along way from 20 miles on one battery, on pretty level ground minimal breeze if any. I would say I could probably get maybe 2 more miles but do not feel safe doing so. I will see what the second battery does when delivered it is on back order. Definitely an in town trike, would be great if not for the size, and cost of batteries.

Wings!

Now that we’ve had some decent weather I’ve been able to spend more time on the trike. Having the throttle is a real bonus when I find myself at the bottom of a hill. The Pedal Assist levels I’ve just started testing. I found that Level 3 was a bit fast initially. Having the rear differential makes it feel so stable when turning although I do keep the speed in check.
Recently I got myself in a pickle going down a trail to the beach and discovering there was no place to turn around. With some judicious use of the throttle I was eventually able to turn it around. Having a reverse gear would have been better. Now I just send my two wheeled friends to check things out.
I use the trike as my everyday driver. I have a waterproof container with a lid in the rear basket that I use for grocery shopping, carrying equipment for meetings, etc. I’m planning on propping the container up a bit so I can have two levels for goods. Then I will make a waterproof cover for the whole basket.
With the balance issues I have I would certainly recommend this trike. It’s very well built and always attracts lots of attention. My cat will be riding with me soon too.
During the process of getting the trike into Canada from Seattle I had exemplary service from all the people I spoke with at Evelo. And the missing cover was shipped at no cost right away. I had a good feeling about this company right from the start & so far I haven’t been disappointed. They will take care of you. I just wish they would export them to Canada. I did lots of research before choosing the Evelo Compass but couldn’t find anything in Canada that met my requirements. I would buy it again.🤓

2021 Compass Trike

Like several customers, you never have enough information to be 100% comfortable when spending this much money. It took me more than 6 months of research and reading reviews and multiple emails and phone calls to a few manufactures to even decide to say, yes I am buying a trike. Now, which one?
This is my first bicycle/tricycle in at least forty years. Additional I am not able to stay upright on two wheels an balance issues are my primary concern. Only one arm will work for steering. Will I be able to ride with my grandkids on bicycles rides?

When I picked up the trike from the dealer who assembled it and set it up, it was my second time on a trike. 4 minutes on a different manufacturer. The first thing I tried was tipping it over to see has easy it was. The other brand did.
Did I make a mistake?
No.
I am 200 lbs, 6 ft and, in my opinion, if I ever flip it over, it would be too fast and too tight a turn to make that happen. With power, think I could easily overturn at speed with a tight turn but speed is a problem for anything moving. It's the driver, not the machine.
The peddle pace is GREAT for me and touch the brakes and the motor cuts off. As others said, I suggest ride without power first for a bit before you use the power.
Delighted. Completely.
Very strong, great quality, and now, after a few weeks, my only complaint is that I waited too long to by it.

The team at Evelo are very knowledgeable, responsive, willing to take time to help me explain the questions so I get it.
Nothing I have connected to this purchase was anything but delightful. Thank you, guys.

BTW, the dealer team all were impressed and a few asked to ride it before loaded into my pickup.

Gave Me Ability to Get Around

I absolutely love my Evelo Compass electric trike! My husband and mother-in-law purchased it for me and it is truly the best gift EVER! I have had several hip and leg surgeries, which have made it physically impossible to walk very far. This trike has changed my life! I can now ride around our neighborhood lake on the bike trail with my husband and enjoy being outside again! The ability to use the electric motor as much or as little as possible is terrific! I can use the assist to get up steep hills and then coast down and peddle with light assistance when needed on flatter terrain! I did get two batteries and this has been great because I never run out of juice. I really can’t say enough about this trike! I would recommend this to anyone who has medical issues that make walking difficult!
