Features

The Fat-Tad Sun Tadpole Trike is a beast on trails and can conquer almost any terrain. With fat 4" wide tires, rear coil-over suspension and integrated front suspension the Fat-Tad climbs over obstacles with ease and keeps you stable.

Independent Front Suspension

The Fat-Tad features independent, fork-integrated front suspension on each front wheel in addition to rear coil-over suspension. Combined with the massive 4" tires, this trike can really soak up the bumps!

Rear Coil-Over Suspension

The rear coil-over suspension adds cusion right where it is needed, under the rider's seat. The suspension bushing and swingarm design allows the rear wheel to articulate independently from the front wheels, for the smoothest ride possible.

Easy-To-Read Segment Display
The Electric Fat-Tad features an easy-to-read backlit display with large text on an articulating mount. This advanced segment LCD includes a battery meter, speed and trip distance readout, and programmable top speed limit.
Versatile 3x8 Gearing
The Fat-Tad features a 21-speed drivetrain, providing you with a wide range of gears to help you tackle anything that might come your way, from hills to straightaways, you'll be prepared to keep on pedaling.
500-1000 Watt Geared Hub Motor
The 500-1000w Electric Bike Technologies fat bike rear geared hub motor features impressive 84Nm torque and a USA handbuilt wheel with single-butted 12-13 gauge spokes for durability.
Thumb Throttle
The easy to use twist throttle allows you to engage the motor whenever you need it. Use the throttle to get a boost when startng from a stop or to help get up to cruising speed. The Fat-Tad also features a pedal-assist sensor (PAS) for operation.

How to Measure Your X-Seam

At Electric Bike Store, we like to use the X-Seam Measurement to fit riders on recumbent trikes, and inseam to fit riders on upright trikes (like the Sun Traditional).

We use this measurement to adjust your trike to fit you out-of-the-box, but it's simple to adjust your trike later to suit your preferences. This is just a rough measurement to make things easier for you.

Alternatively, if you like reading and diagrams...

To measure your X-seam, you'll need a tape measure, a sturdy board (like a piece of plywood or an ironing board), and an assistant to help you. If you currently ride a recumbent bike, you can use that to take the measurement instead of the board.
