Electric-Powered Adult Tricycles Recalled For Defective Rear Axle

June 21, 2012 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

A popular brand of adult tricycles has been recalled due to a defect in the rear axle that may allow it to break, causing a rear wheel to separate and leading to a fall risk, reports PRNewswire.

Around 2,100 of Tricruiser’s Electric-Powered Adult Tricycles, sold at independent bicycle shops and electric bicycle shops across the United States, as well as online at Walmart.com, from March 2007 to March 2012 for a price ranging from $850 to $1120 have been recalled due to a defect in the rear axle. The axle has a tendency to break, leading to a rear tire becoming detached from the vehicle, posing a fall hazard to the rider.

The tricycles, manufactured in China by Acetrikes Industrial Co., Ltd., have so far led to six accidents, five of which ended in bruises and scrapes for the driver.

The affected tricycles are battery operated, and have a basket between the rear wheels, sized at 24″. The brand name eZip or iZip is located on the sides of the bike, as well as above the front wheel.
