This Schwinn Meridian Electric Cargo Tricycle offers the kind of stability and durability one would expect from best electric cargo bikes, with an aluminum frame and a large cushioned seat for comfort. Reviewers loved the 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, which allows for easy shifting, and the fact that it comes with a large mesh basket for the purposes of transporting groceries and other pieces of cargo.
Why We Like It – Schwinn Meridian Electric Cargo Tricycle
The Schwinn Meridian Electric Cargo Tricycle is a fantastic tricycle design that offers a stable ride, with a large comfortable saddle that absorbs bumps and a 7-speed Shimano drivetrain for easy and fuss-free shifting.
Durability & Build Quality
This is an adult tricycle Schwinn made with alloy step thru frame and pedal assist motor provides a comfortable ride. 26 inch wheel size will fit riders between 5’4” to 6’2” in height. The Meridian’s stylish three-wheeled design provides more stability than a bicycle. It’s single speed drivetrain will have you cruising around for errands or joyrides in style.
Performance (Speed & Acceleration)
Though this electric cargo tricycle is fully adjustable along a number of metrics, it does not accommodate riders taller than 6’2”, which could be an issue for some. Also, the maximum speed here is 16 miles per hour, which is on the lower end though still serviceable. While we’re focusing on the single speed in this review there is a more costly 7 speed that is otherwise exactly the same.
Range & Battery
Not taking the same battery as bikes like the Tern GSD S10 instead the Meridian takes the less popular 630-Watt battery that provides extended ranges when paired with the bike’s 350W Bafang Max Drive motor with unit assists up to 16 MPH.
As an adult trike it’s already safer than a normal cargo bike like the Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch, though some might think it being an electric tricycle makes it automatically more dangerous the single gear and max speed of 16mph will likely keep most injuries to a minimum.
While far more expensive then the Rad Power Bikes Radwagon the Free shipping and basket for it’s cargo makes halling the things you’ll need for the sports outdoors or just going to the gym far easier and safer than the standard E cargo bike.
Schwinn Meridian Electric Cargo Tricycle Wrap Up
That max speed definitely makes this an option for either the sidewalk or the bike lane as unlike other Ebikes it just can’t get the speed for it to be safe on the road, but other then that it’s a comfortable option and is most highly recommended for seniors who are more likely to be injured more seriously in they lose balance.
