***Latest News from Ridekick is that 2014 will be a year of manufacturing and redesign, so no Ridekick trailers will be available until further notice.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Ridekick is an electric boost for almost any bike, with the simplicity of attaching a bike trailer. And it also is a bike trailer -- with cargo space for up 100 pounds of your gear, groceries, or commuter stuff.
Unhitches quickly, and pulls as easily as wheeled luggage.
A 500 watt motor pushes you up to 19 mph, and puts you on good terms with your most dreaded hills.
The hitch plate attaches to most bikes, as long as the hitch plate is able to lay flat against the bike's dropout on the non-drive side. (See examples of incompatible bikes.)
Two Battery Options:
Available with a Sealed Lead-Acid (SLA) battery made from 60 - 80% recycled materials, or a Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery.
The Ridekick™ SLA battery packs themselves are recyclable.
The LiFePO4 batteries are more expensive up front, but have a longer life and lower operating cost overall. They don't need to be kept as diligently charged-up to maintain battery life.
