First VELOKS MK3 in the USA

Configured with 5.1 kWh battery, Mid motor, and Rohloff Speedhub Gear. The Trike was sent via ocean freight packaged in a wooden crate. I expect this to mark the start for more VELOKS trikes in the USA.

The VELOKS homepage has been refreshed / rewritten / extended. Many new and informative pages with detailed information and pictures of our trikes has been added. Have a look: www.veloks.com

New VELOKS MK3 Models

During these Covid-19 times, we are busy developing 3 new VELOKS MK3 models. These will be ready during the next 3 months.

(1)   VELOKS MK3-RWD

This model has a new rear hub-based drive system using the GMAC 10T geared hub motor (standard speed version). Available with either 1000 watt or 2000 watt of motor power. Max. speed is 45 km/h. Only chain gears are supported.

This model is well suited for leisure trips and commuting, and will require less maintenance than the MID model version, as there is no motor chain to maintain. Noise levels are also lower that the MID version. Torque is still quite good, and the trike will happily drive up a 10-degree incline without overheating. Can be driven using only the hand throttle from standstill.

(2)   VELOKS MK3-FWD

This model has a two front hub motors and is using the GRIN-fst direct drive 20 mm through axle hub motor (fast version). Available with either 2 x 1000 watt or 2 x 2000 watt of motor power. Max. speed 60 km/h. Comes with special 2.4 kWh high current battery which will deliver up to 120 A continuously. All gear types supported.

This model suited most types of trips, and like the RWD version will require less maintenance than the MID model version. Noise levels are also lower than the MID version. Traction is much higher than the MID and RWD versions, as 70% of the weight are on the front wheels. Torque is high and the trike will happily drive up a 30-degree incline without overheating. Can be driven using only the hand throttle from standstill.

(3)   VELOKS MK3-AWD 

This model is quite extreme and probably unique in the world.. It has a two front hub motors, using the GRIN-fst direct drive 20 mm through axle hub motor (fast version), and one GMAC 8T rear hub motor (fast version). Available with either 3 x 1000 watt or 3 x 2000 watt of motor power. Max. speed is 60 km/h. Comes standard with special 2.4 kWh high current battery which will deliver up to 120 A continuously. Only chain gears are supported.

This model suited all situations, and like the RWD version will require less maintenance the MID model version. Noise levels are also lower that the MID version. With 3 powerful motors, traction and acceleration are extreme. Torque is also extreme and the trike will happily drive up a 35-degree incline without overheating. Can be driven using only the hand throttle from standstill.
