What makes the Compass different?

Most adult tricycles are one wheel drive. This can cause loss of traction when you need it most. The Compass features a rear differential offering rear wheel drive of both rear wheels.

The Compass includes a single battery with ample range, and also includes an additional pre-installed battery dock and dual battery module, ready to double your range if needed.

Mid Drive motors are the most powerful and efficient drive systems for ebikes. The Compass has low gearing for maximum climbing ability, and can tackle any hill with little or no pedaling.

Ready, Set, Ride… Enjoy The Fun

The Compass is a amazing fun bike for those who might need more balance while enjoying all of the benefits of a bicycle. While you pedal you enjoy the fun of self power, power assist or full EV power. Plus have room for a picnic basket or … as you ride off to your favorite spot. 🤩

Riding on a crowned street.

IVe had to get used to riding on a crowned residential street. A bike stays vertical,
a trike is set to the angle of the street. It makes me feel a little concerned about tipping to the side. I try to stay centered without traffic. I need a side view mirror.
I love the trike.

So far, so good ...

My new trike!!

After much e-trike research, I am so happy I found the Evelo Compass. Incredible engineering and quality. Smaller frame for this 5' tall senior. Finding a trike with this level of well designed safety features means I can still ride with my balance issues. The rear differential and two wheel drive makes this a very stable trike. I LOVE this trike. The tech support is unbelievable and their support of established customers on future purchases is unrivaled. My Open Box Compass arrived as described with six miles on it. I look forward to a really fun Spring 2023. We have already invested in an Omega to round out the fleet!!

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 addirtional 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


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.
