​Experience with Falco eDrive - Don Auriemma

Short story of Don Auriemma and his experience of using Falco system in his own words.

I’ve been an avid cyclist all my adult life. I love every aspect of the sport; conditioning, mental and physical health, camaraderie, competition, and adventure.

As I approached my mid-seventies, a neuropathic condition began to degrade my balance capabilities. Fearing that I might injure myself and/or others I considered giving up my sport. My friends quickly convinced me to explore the purchase of a trike that would enable me to continue my cycling activities. I purchased a fantastic Catrike 529 about five years ago. It was great fun, but after a couple of years, I was having some difficulty keeping up with my friends on hills because of the weight and geometry of a trike.

That’s when I discovered the Falco eMotors ebike system. I retrofitted my Catrike with a Falco eMotor e-bike system, which consists of a hub motor, battery, console, +/- controller, wireless module, and throttle.

I could not be happier. My etrike allows me to extend my cycling enjoyment far into the future. I have total control over the power assist spectrum. I start most rides at zero, using only pedal power. As needed on hills, or if I get caught at a traffic light and need to close the gap to my friends, I can select the ideal power assist level needed with the touch of a button.At power level five, I can reach speeds of nearly 30mph on flats.

Riding my trike with a Falco eMotor’s ebike system is fun riding very similar to a traditional upright bicycle. Four members of my club have already “gone electric”, so I am rarely the only motorized member on a ride. My range is at least 100 miles, and the console provides me with my speed, odometer, assist level, and battery level.

The people at Falco are always ready, willing, and able to provide advice and technical support when needed, but that is quite rare.

See you on the road!
