Electrical Pedaling Assistance


The electric pedal support provides additional support when the legs and arms do not have enough strength to perform the natural pedalling movement.

The weight of our tricycles increases by 19.2 pounds thanks to the electric staircase support. As a result, our tricycles, including the electric pedal support, still weigh less than 66 pounds.

The electric pedal support will begin to provide support as soon as the handles start moving. In the case of the EasyLegs, the electrical support will start as soon as the throttle is turned on the handle bars.

The BerkelBike pedalling support system has a self-drive feature. This can be used to cycle at low speed without using the arms and is often used to get started or to climb a slope. The combination of the first gear with the top-level pedaling support allows the user to easily climb hills without any problem.

Review by Mieke van de Louw – Hemiplegia

“I’m Mieke van de Louw. Three years ago, in the beautiful month of May, something happened that nobody could be prepared for- I suffered a stroke. A stroke with left-sided paralysis, which suddenly prevented me from walking. During my rehabilitation, it became clear that I would not recover again. And so I had to make a choice: a scooter or a tricycle.

My husband encouraged me to choose a tricycle; the EasyLegs. It allows me to be very independent in life. I can do the shopping myself and go to my therapy. I feel wonderfully free and independent when I’m cycling. I can’t imagine living without it.”

Adding the PEDALING SUPPORT system

The engine for the pedaling support is installed on the frame, which means it does not cause any additional resistance, and can be added on at any time. The BerkelBike Pro, Connect and EasyLegs can be equipped with the electric pedaling support.


The engine does not require maintenance and is powered by a lightweight battery. The battery can easily be disconnected for transport or to recharge indoors. It can also be easily replaced by a spare battery while away on the road. We also have a larger battery for people who want an even longer use time.

How does it work?

The pedalling support system drives the pedals and not the wheel, which allows for a more natural leg movement. The system guarantees 360-degree support of the pedalling motion, with focus on critical positions. Moreover, because the system doesn’t drive the wheels directly, the user can still use all 8 (or 11) gears of the bike.

The electric pedalling support system lets the user decide how much of their own strength they want to use while cycling. 6 levels are available to the user; the higher the level, the more support is provided. The levels range from barely any support to full support (like a mobility scooter). The interplay between the chosen support level, the chosen gear, and the user’s own power output will determine the cycling speed.
