Traditional tricycle
The traditional tricycle is a cycle with
two wheels behind and one wheel in
front, where the seat is placed above the
bottom bracket. You pedal virtually
downwards and sit relatively high on the
cycle. As the frame of a tricycle is not
inclined at the bend, it takes a little
getting used to for some people. With
one front wheel this type of cycle can be
manoeuvred more easily, this is also
because practically all Van Raam cycles
are equipped with a differential.
Van Raam has different sizes
for this type of tricycles.

Comfort
Low step through tricycle
Van Raam has a variant of the traditional tricycle. This has a low spacious step through
and easier sitting position. Instead of above the pedals, you sit a little behind them.
This gives you a lower sitting position, so you can always mount with both your legs
on the ground and have optimum space for knee movement. In this variant you do not
need to raise the legs high for mounting and can draw the seat underneath yourself
and then sit. With a lower centre of gravity this tricycle feels more comfortable than
the conventional ones. The lower sitting position places lesser burden on your back,
shoulders, neck and wrists. The Maxi Comfort is available with a smaller, standard and
extra high frame. Many people find this cycle easier to ride than a traditional tricycle.
There are many options available, such as gear lever, backrest, footrests and an
electric engine for power assist.

Tricycle with seating
Low step through and lower sitting position
There is a tricycle with a low step through, a seating with back support and a forward
pedalling position designed for people, who want to cycle in a comfortable and stable
manner. You sit at a lower height, which gives you a lower centre of gravity, thereby
boosting confidence and giving a feeling of safety.
Virtually anyone can ride without getting used it on this cycle. The comfort seat gives
your back support and adequate space for sitting. This completely different cycling
position lays hardly any burden on the back, neck, shoulders and wrists. As you are
practically sitting between the rear wheels, you also have fewer problems anticipating
the width. There is an adult and a junior variant of this type of tricycle. There is also a
sports model with under-steering.

You can easily decide which type of support you want during the cycle ride.
This cycle is quite compact and maneuverable and hence, also suitable to use for
shopping. The adjustable double suspension gives you a stable and comfortable
driving experience. There is no driving licence or any other driving ability certificate

Tricycle
With two wheels in front and one rear wheel
For people, who find it hard to anticipate the width of a tricycle, there is a tricycle with
two front-wheels and one rear wheel. This design helps the tricycle rider to always
be in a position to correctly judge whether he can pass through or along some place.
This type of cycle is also called a T-bike or a trike. The saddle of this type of tricycle is
placed above the pedals. You pedal virtually downwards and sit relatively high on the
cycle. Two wheels in front are somewhat heavier to control and have a greater turning
radius than one wheel in front

Wheelchair bikes
The Van Raam wheel-chair bikes are used to enable a wheelchair dependent person to
travel by cycle. Van Raam has two models of wheel-chair bikes: the VeloPlus
wheelchair transport bike and the OPair wheel-chair bike.
In the VeloPlus the passenger can keep sitting in his or her own wheelchair. Virtually
any hand-driven wheelchair can be driven and fixed easily on the tilted plateau of the
wheelchair by one person without transferring the passenger.
In the OPair the passenger sits in the seat on the front side of the cycle. The
standard seating can be adjusted in many ways. A separate seat can also be mounted,
if required. Optionally, the wheel-chair part can be detached from the cycle and used
independently as a wheelchair.
The wheelchair bikes have a number of advantages; they can be taken quite close to
the destination, there is social contact between both the persons riding it, one is less
dependent on a third person for transportation and they are environment-friendly.
The optional power assist makes it possible for virtually anyone and under almost any
circumstances to negotiate long distances.
29
OPair
Wheelchair bike
The OPair is a cycle, with which you can transport a wheelchair user. There is a
suspension wheelchair mounted on the front side of the bike. The rider has a good
view of and can watch over the passenger from behind. The front part can easily be
disconnected from the cycle part in the detachable variant so that it can be used as an
independent wheelchair anywhere. The universal tub can be adjusted in many ways
and optional be adjusted to the requirements for children. The cycle can be completely
customised using various options. Even a separate seating can be mounted on the
cycle.
The gradually sloping front wheels give the cycle extra comfort and stability while
riding. You may even use the optional electric engine for power assistance while
cycling. The OPair is mostly used for transporting the same person because the seat
has been adjusted for that person.

VeloPlus
Wheelchair transport bike
The VeloPlus is designed for transporting people, who can remain seated in their own
wheelchair, by cycle. The passenger is not required to be transferred between the
wheelchair and the cycle. The co-rider can be wheeled on to the plateau of the cycle
easily without having to be lifted.
The tilted ramp makes it easy to roll the wheelchair on to the wheel-chair bike and
fasten it properly with the wheelchair lock. The low positioning of the chair on the
cycle makes the ride easier and gives a lower centre of gravity.
The widely placed and extra steered front-wheels ensure a reduced turning radius and
hence, stability. The electric engine may be optionally used for power assist during
cycling. The VeloPlus is mostly used in institutions or homes for transporting various
persons.

Tandems
The Van Raam tandems are used to enjoy cycling together. Van Raam has various
types of tandems: the tandem, in which two adults sit one behind the other:
the Twinny; a tandem, in which a child and an accompanying adult, sit one behind the
other: the Kivo
The Twinny and the Kivo are also available as a tricycle variant with two rear wheels.
Besides, there is a Fun2Go double rider cycle, in which two adults or an adult and a
child can sit next to each other. There is also a trailer available for the Fun2Go, the
Funtrain, with which four people can cycle together.
With the low step through or no step through and the various options available, the
tandems are widely used by people, who can no longer cycle by themselves anymore.
The smooth-running tandems can be adjusted using the (optional) freewheel switch
in such a way that you can pedal at speeds independent of each other, with equal
speed, or the passenger does not pedal at all. The Twinny tandem is also available as
detachable, which facilitates transporting it behind the car using a bike carrier.
Various options
The Van Raam tandems are also available in electric versions with electric power
assistance. There are various options possible to make the tandem suitable for
any type of use. We produce every tandem uniquely. Thus, for example, we can
personalise the tandems with front or rear control, as required.
35
Twinny
Tandem
It is easy to get on and off the Twinny. This is owed to the spacious low step through.
It is designed with more space between the saddle of the front rider and the handle
of the co-rider, thus avoiding the two riders sitting too close to each other. You can
decide on your own how to cycle together, so you may pedal independently of each
other using the double freewheel. The optional freewheel switch is used to decide,
whether both the riders pedal at independent speeds, with the same speed or the
passenger does not have to pedal at all.
Many options are available for this cycle, including a detachable variant. You may
even opt for a steering handle to be assembled at the rear. As every bike is produced
uniquely, you can get the frame height adjusted in front and at the back as per your
requirement. An electric engine can be used for a comfortable power assist to make
cycling on this tandem much easier.

Fun2Go
Double rider cycle
The Fun2Go is a double rider cycle, a three-wheel tandem, in which the users sit
beside each other. One person steers, both can pedal. The two persons have a good
view and can communicate well with each other due to the seats being next to each
other. The riders can get on without having to step through and the seats can be
easily adjusted to the required distance with a lever.
The Fun2Go is enormous manoeuvrable, with two wheels completely in the rear and
one fore-wheel it can be rotated round its own axis. The optional freewheel switch
can be turned on or off to determine whether the rider (if mandatory) would pedal
along. There is an optional electric engine to give power assist to help you cycle under
any circumstances easily.
Furthermore, many other options can be used to make the Fun2Go complete. There is
also a double rider trailer, the Funtrain, on which a total of three passengers and an
attendant can safely ride.

Funtrain
Double rider trailer
The Funtrain is an automatic, hydraulic braked double rider cycle trailer, which can
be attached behind an existing or new Fun2Go side by side bike. In this manner an
attendant can safely ride with three co-riders or usually with one co-rider on the
Fun2Go itself.
A tow bar is simply fitted on the existing Fun2Go. The Funtrain has a safety lock which
cannot come off on its own and an automatic, hydraulic, overrun brake. The driver of
the front double rider bike thus has 100% control over the Funtrain and Fun2Go.
The driver is the only one who steers and brakes, all the four riders can pedal along.
Optionally, it can also be determined for the co-riders individually whether they must
pedal, with the same speed or different speed or need not pedal at all. The Funtrain
itself has a foldable support wheel to move the detachable double rider bike trailer
easily.
You can even attach two Funtrains behind a Fun2Go so that six people can cycle
together.

Other
Van Raam cycles
Van Raam also produces a comfortable low step through bike, a balance bike and a
bike taxi for eight children.
Apart from this Van Raam also makes frames for others and special bikes totally
custom-made for people with a disability. Thus, we make unique bikes, for example,
for people of short stature (dwarfs). Another example is a bike for someone with no
arms, the person steers with the back and changes gears with the feet.
47
Balance
Comfortable low step through bike
The Balance low step through bike by Van Raam is a comfort bike with a low step
through and a uniquely designed frame. With the Balance bike you can always
place both your feet on the ground without getting off the saddle and cycle with a
comfortable movement of your legs. The great advantage of the Balance is the unique
ergonomically designed seat. Wrists, shoulders and neck are hardly burdened while
cycling.
The more forward pedalling motion ensures that you use the power of your legs
better than in case of conventional bikes. The lower centre of gravity makes the
cycling easier and more comfortable. This bike is, thus, much more than a low step
through bike, it is much safer because you do not have to get on and off the saddle at
a stop. The Balance is also available with an electric engine for power assist and many
other options.
Suitable for:
Senior citizens, people having difficulty getting on and off a bike, people with neck,
shoulder and wrist pains and people with slight balancing problems.

City
Walking support
The City walking support is suitable for people who have difficulty in walking or
prolonged standing. A wheelchair is not yet required and you do not prefer a walker.
Your body weight is borne by the seat of the walking support, thus relieving your leg
joints. Walking takes less effort, hence you can travel over longer distances. Besides,
the walking support is foldable and light-weight, so you can easily carry it along in a
car, bus, train or plane.

children safely. The GoCab is particularly suited for childcare and after-school care
organisations. With the electric pedal assist it becomes very easy to cycle on the
GoCab. You can even cycle in reverse using electric assist. Due to the single front
wheel the cycle has a very short turning radius and can be easily manoeuvred.
The GoCab can be ridden without a driver’s licence or special insurance. The bike taxi
has already won many prizes: the international Eurobike Award, a GIO recognition,
an Award in the Dutch design week and the Innovation Award of the Amsterdam Rai.

Options
of Van Raam cycles
Every Van Raam cycle is available with many options, such as: baskets, mirrors, walker
and walking stick holders, lower leg and foot fixation, foot straps, belts, arm and back
support, direction indicators, special handles, foot plates, hydraulic brakes, one-hand
operation, a gear lever to easily control the speed, different gear systems, kilometre
counter and special crank or frame adjustments. There are unique options for every
type of bike. You can view these on the website by the specific Van Raam bike.
Using an eccentric crank the two legs can make different rotations so that you can
easily cycle, even with a knee with a bending limitation. A crank shortener can help
in compensating the difference in the lengths of the legs and other limitations in the
legs. One can even cycle with one leg using a stationary crank.
As Van Raam produces every cycle uniquely, making special frame adjustments
is no problem. We make the cycles completely uniquely as per your requirements.
Therefore, we make frames for exceptional lengths, weight or other bodily limitations.

Van Raam has a uniquely designed electric power assist system, the Silent system.
Motor housing, batteries, controller, software and display are specially designed and
developed for and by Van Raam. You have to always pedal alongside this type of
system. On the Easy Go scooter bikes, you can also ride with 100% electric assist.
The noise-free Silent system is normally equipped with a starting aid: if required, you
can ride at a speed of up to about 5 km/per hour without having to pedal for a distance
of about 10 m using an extra pushbutton on the display. Thereafter, you have to pedal
yourself.
In case of tricycles you can even cycle in reverse with the electric assist switched on.
The Silent motors of Van Raam are equipped with traction control. This means that the
motor does not slip on a slippery surface.
There is a standard Silent motor and a Silent HT. The Silent HT gives about
one-and-a-half times the output of the standard Silent motor. This HT motor is
particularly intended for the heavier bikes, for use in hilly areas or in the case of low
pedalling capacity of (both) the cyclists.
The motion sensor, the force sensor in the pedals and the unique software system
ensure an optimum support and efficient energy consumption. Thus the power assist
will be gradually built up and broken down. This prevents sudden actions of the
engine.

Silent System
The Silent system of Van Raam
has already been crowned with
international prizes. This is owing to
the fact that Van Raam has already
attained many years of experience
with the designing of electric bikes,
which can take on really heavy loads.

Batteries
Van Raam uses Lithium ion cobalt batteries with 11.2, 12.4 or 24.8 amp per hour
and 36 volt. Thus a capacity of 1.785 Watt hour (WH) can be reached.
The batteries and the special software are manufactured in Germany. In practically
all cycles, two battery packs can be optionally installed. The batteries are easy to
remove from the bike and can be charged on the bike or at home.

Dealers
Van Raam bicycles
The Van Raam cycles are internationally available with the dealers, whose details
are available on the website. There are various types of dealers: dealers who provide
service to Van Raam cycles, dealers who keep a few model cycles for test ride and
dealers who keep (virtually) all the models. These dealers deliver the cycle to you,
make adjustments on them and provide you the after-sales service.
The cycles can also be ordered via any cycle dealer, they can also provide the regular
service. We have a showroom with all the models at our factory at Varsseveld. Here,
you can have arrangements to test ride the cycles. However, you cannot purchase any
cycles here. That can be done later via a dealer or cycle dealer.
The images of cycles shown may contain options or accessories not available with the standard model. Minor modifications
may also be brought about on the cycle. Press-work and printing errors reserved. Always read the user’s manual thoroughly
before using our cycles.
