Compass Electric Tricycle Features

Stable frame that's easy to get on and off

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.

Safer turning with true two wheel drive

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. 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.

Quick charge times and up to a 40 mile range

Go the extra mile with EVELO’s top-tier Li-ion cell technology. Our large semi-integrated frame battery offers extended range, and is easily removed for charging on or off your bicycle. With short charge times and up to 40 miles of range for your average rider, you can ride and explore more, and spend less time worrying about when to head back home. The Compass is also Dual Battery ready, so you can easily double your range to 80+ miles per charge when you purchase an additional battery, and run them both simultaneously for a seamless journey.

EVELO Compass - Trike

Ordered the Compass/Trike for my wife, and she loves it. We rented another brand trike, and it was not built as well. Trikes take some getting used to, as different from a bike, but once she got used to it, we ride together almost everyday. It is a lot safer as lowers risk of falling over. The only down side is no local dealer to go to for repairs, but the online response for any issues/problems has been great. They coordinated with a local repair shop to do the warranty work, and paid for it. We get a lot of compliments on the bike, it looks really nice. It comes with one battery, and we ride on flat trails, with a medium/small sized woman on the bike. With the battery fully charged, we ride for about 2-2.5 hours over a 20 mile trail and use about 80% of the battery. So its good for about 25 miles max on paved flat trails for a 135 lb. person. Yes, we can get a second battery, but they are not cheap.

This is the greatest company online or off that I have ever dealt with. They are totally customer friendly.
I have the compass and love it. I ordered one for my wife and due to delivery problems did not receive
her compass until November which in Wisconsin is not bike weather.
I asked if we could start the warranty April 15 and they agreed. I pushed the crate into a corner of the garage and never opened it.
Well to make long story short my wife has stage 4 stomach cancer. I asked if I could return the trike and there was no hesitation.
The answer was yes. I don't know what our full future is but should good thinghs happen and my wife gets better I would not hesitate to order her a new Compass. This is a great company

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?
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.

Satissfied Repeat Ower

This is my second time I buy an EVELO bike. My first was a folding bike which I have been pleased to use for a few years and recently sold it for a reasonable price. My second is an EVELO Compass which I bought after searching comprables and reviews. Quality and reliablitiy were the main factors why I choose EVELO. For the short time I have been using the Compass, I can say I am equally satissfied as my first experience, it came almost fully assembled and ready to ride in no time. In brief, you get what you pay for. Another reason for my safissfaction is the EVELO Team, they stay in touch with you after the sale to make sure you are fully comfortable with what you bought.


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 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.
