This Nihola trike had a Promovec rear hub motor electric drive. The battery was old and tired and hard to source a replacement. Our solution was to repower it with a Pendix mid-drive electric motor. The rear axle of the Promovec is an unusual width so for now it is keeping the old hub motor wheel until we can build a new wheel.
The battery is removable in just a few seconds with a twist of the wrist. The system is very simple in operation, you choose from 3 levels of assistance by twisting a dial on the top of the battery. You can also connect your Android or Apple mobile phone via a Bluetooth app connection so you can monitor distance travelled, speed and change power settings. The advantage with a mid-drive system is that it allows you to use the motor power through the full range of gears on your bike so you will be able to power up hills.
