Where an electric bike or conversion kit is defined as Street legal, it means the electric bike or trike is considered street legal Under Canadian and US Federal Electric Bike Regulations. Those products are viewed as bicycles, not motorized vehicles without need of insurance license plate or drivers’ license. It is important for you to check your province/ state, county, and local laws to ensure that you are riding legally and safely.
Please note Street Legal does not mean you can ride your electric bike or trike on any bicycle pathways; parks and trails may have their restrictions against use of electric assist bikes.
