Based on 23 reviews Write a review


The Fat-Tad Sun Tadpole Electric 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.

Front integrated suspension with 20mm travel
Independent Front Suspension

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

Rear Coil-Over Suspension with 30mm of travel
Rear Coil-Over Suspension

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

An easy-to-read, large color LCD
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 color LCD includes a battery meter, speed and trip distance readout, and programmable top speed limit.
A 24 speed drivetrain provides a wide range of gears
Versatile 3x8 Gearing
The Fat-Tad features a 24-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.
A SunRace 8 speed cassette and 500-100w e-trikekit
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.
A twist throttle and pedal-assit sensor
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 starting 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 Trike 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.

x-seam diagram

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.

SHIPS 100% FULLY ASSEMBLED from Our Warehouse in Bucks County, PA
The tricycle is enclosed in a heavy cardboard box and fastened to a custom-built shipping pallet. Shipping is by freight truck with liftgate service included.

We use a variety of freight carriers based on your shipping destination. When the trike ships you will receive an email from us with tracking information. The freight company will contact you before the final delivery is made in order to arrange the drop-off with you.

The electric tricycles we offer are high quality tricycles assembled by professionals with years of experience, and we stand behind each electric tricycle we build and ship. If, for any reason, after purchasing your electric trike, you are not 100% satisfied, simply contact customer service to discuss the return.

IMPORTANT: Buyers may return any undamaged and unused products (including fully assembled electric tricycles) within 30 days of delivery for a refund minus a 25% restocking fee (based on the condition of the returned item and at the sole discretion of EBT).
