Pedal assistance on a Van Raam bicycle
Van Raam has its own electric pedal assistance system, the Silent system. In 2018-2019, this system was once again declared a winner in the ExtraEnergy test. All components of this system are specially developed for Van Raam adapted bicycles, including the powerful and silent electric motor. Pedal assistance is available on almost all Van Raam bicycles, except the City walking aid and Husky children's tricycle. Discover the benefits of pedal assistance in this article.
1. Less power and effort required
On a bike with pedal assistance you are exercising, but you need less strength and effort than on a bike without an electric motor. This makes cycling easier for people with physical and/or mental disabilities.
2. Starting aid
The Van Raam Silent system is equipped with a starting aid. When you turn on the start aid, you get support from the system without having to pedal. If desired, you can drive over a distance of about 10 meters about 6 km / h without cycling. This makes it easy to get going without having to apply any effort yourself. The start aid can be switched on via the easy-to-operate display on the handlebar. In addition, the starting aid can also be used as a 'booster' while cycling. When you use the starting aid while cycling, you get the maximum support, the force of the boost depends on the support mode.
