TRIOBIKE TAXI: AN ELECTRIC COUCH ON WHEELS!
Urban mobility is not only for young and dynamic people living in cities, for trioBike mobility has no age.
TRIOBIKE designed the new taxi to fulfill the dream of Cycling Without Age, which is the right for everyone to feel the wind through your hair. We contribute to the leading international movement where volunteer pilots offer bike rides for the elderly. Since 2012, this has given all ages the opportunity to enjoy the sense of freedom, the wind rush through your hair and to enhance quality of life in ways only a bike ride can offer.

The new trioBike taxi is easy to ride, steer and comfortable for rider and passenger. It is designed to be practical and stylish at the same time. It’s primarily designed to carry adults, especially elderly people but also anyone with mobility issues. With 90 cm of inner width, the passenger seat is among the most spacious on the market. Its ergonomic design ensures a very relaxed sitting position as well.
ACCESSIBILITY FOR EVERYONE
Furthermore, the box-module also has an easy and ergonomic access. The removable middle plate allows people with walking difficulties to sit down easily on the seat without having to lift their feet, securing a safe entry and exit.
DANISH DESIGN & QUALITY
TRIOBIKE taxi is not a simple taxi bike, it’s a couch on wheels. We designed it focusing on the comfort of the passengers, inspired by some of the most iconic Scandinavian furniture. The front box is made in bent plywood by our German supplier, the same of famous design furniture such as Hans Jørgen Wegner, Ray & Charles Eames and Tadao Ando. Furthermore, the seat is manufactured in Denmark by the same company producing the cushion for Arne Jacobsen’s Egg and Swan. Therefore, you can expect a soft and comfortable seat, which is easy to clean and maintain.
SPACE FOR YOUR THINGS
The new TRIOBIKE taxi also has a big and spacious storage box beneath the seat with a volume of 70 litres.
SUNNY OR RAINY, IT DOESN’T MATTER
The hood is permanently attached on the bike. It’s easy to fold when the sun is shining and fast to unfold if the weather is changing.
The many windows ensure a great view when the hood is unfolded. The fabric is water resistant and color steady.
SAFETY FIRST AND FOREMOST
Safety is guaranteed by the presence of two seat belts, one per passenger. The seat belts can be plugged together to carry one person, sitting in the centre of the seat.
HEAVY LOAD, LIGHT EFFORT
There are two options for the power unit.
One is a hub based system from the Danish company Promovec, a Danish e-power system manufacturer acknowledged for being one of the best and most reliable e-system on the market. The 250w 43Nm system is tested in extreme conditions, both under hot and cold weather, which makes it extremely usable in any weather.
There is also the option of mid drive Brose Drive S system. This 250w 90Nm system offers a higher torque output and is ideal for areas with steeper hills, or for heavier loads. It comes with a 13.4Ah battery with an optional extended range option
Both versions come with a Shimano 9 speed rear derailleur, and a single front chainring.
