Electric Fat Tad CXs Tadpole

Fat Tad Recumbant by SunSeeker electric recumbent trike

This is the big, bad boy of recumbents! We were so excited when our first customer (to purchase the Tad) approached us and said he wanted to purchase the Fat Tad with a 48 volt, 20 amp hour battery. Since we install the electric kit on this bike, we knew we would have to take it out for a test ride, and that was exciting. The electric Fat Tad rides on air and rolls over about anything in your way. Ride it over a curb? No problem. Ride it on a trail? You bet! When we rode it around the complex by our shop, people literally stopped what they were doing to watch. We even had a man clap as we rode by (really). It’s just that awesome. For $100, you can also get the smooth tires for it, so you have your fall/winter nobby tires and your smooth spring/summer tires. And, we’ll change them for you each season.
