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 with an additional battery, and run them both simultaneously for a seamless journey.

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.

awesome trikes

We have been lucky to be able to purchase 2 Compass Trikes. The first one when it first came out .Rode over a 1000 miles the first year. Then my husband also wanted one. So I ordered another one with the rear differential and that is awesome and of course I claimed it as mine.. Have put in another 1000 miles on the new one. Both working well and battery charges well to 100%. These trikes have done well for us especially with this pandemic. We were able to go out and enjoyed the outdoors going to grocery stores, bank , drive thru food chains and farmers market a lot or just to have fresh air and fun .Sometimes we raced on the trails when not busy. We get a lot of compliments from friends and strangers on our trikes.It kept us active and get the exercise we need.
My husband is 82years old and recently had a stroke that affected his balance and he worked hard and now riding his trike after 3 months of rehab. I'm 75 years old and I have been so afraid of falling since I fell off my regular bike . The trike made me enjoy life again after both knees replaced, rods and screws placed in my spine and a right total shoulder done. Hopefully that's the end of metal placed in my body but that dont stop me from going almost everyday weather permitting.
I can not forget to mention the excellent service that Evelo customer service have given us. Thank you very much to Thomas, Alex, David and Justin and others that have taken my calls and very willing to help.

Compass Trike = No Regrets

The best electric bike to own is the one you will actually USE. And I use my Evelo Compass all the time! It brings a smile to my face every time.
After a great deal of research, I purchased the EVELO trike, and I couldn't be more happy with my decision. I had a major allergic reaction to a medication several years ago that compromised nearly all of my tendons, causing me to tire easily after prolonged movement, and I wanted something that would permit me to move about with relative ease, while providing stability and ample power. Feeling safe from falling was very important to me, and my EVELO tricycle not only provided me with the ability to be mobile, but also gave me confidence that I would not fall when the tendons on my feet needed to rest. The pedal assist feature is extremely helpful, and when all else fails, I know that the throttle will take me up hills with relative ease--I just sit back and smile while my electric trike does all the work for me!😁
In addition to providing me with much needed balance and power, my trike (who I have named Evie) is beautifully constructed. She looks elegant, and I cannot tell you how many times complete strangers have stopped me while I am out and about just to compliment my ride and ask me about my riding experience. This bike makes me feel safe, is beautiful and functional, and is very comfortable to ride. I love the look and components used in its construction, and I absolutely love the back basket that comes with it--I can haul just about anything I want in it--my small dog incuded!
Last but not least, I feel it would be wrong of me not to include the TREMENDOUS customer service/support I received in my evaluation. From point of sale to delivery, the level of service I received from David, Alex, Maurice, and Justin and countless others, was second to none. They answered all of my questions (often same day) and, because they have a headquarter in the Seattle area, took the time to build and deliver my trike to me. The "white glove" service of building my trike was an option I definitely would recommend any trike customer (who may be directions/technically challenged!) consider. My husband and I had planned to pick it up from a local bike shop, but due to Covid 19 shipping complications, EVELO went out of there way to put my trike together (a service offered to trike owners, because it may be a bit more complicated to do) and then personally delivered it to me. A HUGE thank you to Justin for being so kind and generous in not only doing this for me, but in also spending about 45 minutes to answer my questions once my trike was delivered. Now that's customer service!!
It took me a great deal of time to decide to pull the trigger and purchase my trike from EVELO. I had locally test ridden a competitor's electric trike (Pedago), but found the riding experience (for me) to be a bit wobbley, so on a leap of faith (because Evelo bikes can only be purchased online), I purchased my trike after having read reviews from previous owners, independent bike reviews, and watching YouTube videos on their functionality and form. I highly recommend typing "Evelo tricycle" on YouTube and watching the reviews. It really helped me get a sense of what my trike can do. But knowing that if I was unhappy for any reason that I could return it with a refund on my purchase order, only sealed the deal. That let me know Evelo stands by its product, and it has faith that its customers will, too.
I would not hesitate to buy another Evelo electric bike in the future, and if you are looking for a well-made electric adult tricycle, I hope you consider giving this small company your business. This company sells an exceptional product, and is run by exceptionally good people.

Love it!

Rides nice, looks great, and a fine way to get exercise! I am so happy with my purchase, and the Evelo team is wonderful!


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.
