7 biggest differences between the Fun2Go 2 and Fun2Go 1 duo bikes

1. Ergonomics

Extensive research has been carried out among our customers, Van Raam dealers, and our own staff to improve the ergonomics of the duo bike. The position of the handlebars has been optimized, and the seat has been adapted to a seat whose sitting position and seat depth are adjustable. This gives cyclists a more stable and comfortable riding experience.

2. Design

Another notable difference between the Fun2Go 1 and Fun2Go 2 is the design. The Fun2Go 2 has a modern and sleek design with a fresh look. This duo bike has the standard color (RAL 5018) turquoise blue matt and has several optional colors. There are many black accents, such as the hub, rims, and handlebars.

The chain guard and other rotating parts are shielded. This not only makes the bike safer but also attractive to look at. The Van Raam Fun2Go 2 duo bike also has wide bicycle tires. These are sturdy tires with a good anti-leak rating.

3. Seat

The Fun2Go 2 duo bike has an improved seat compared to the two types of seats of the Fun2Go 1. The seats of the Fun2Go 2 are ergonomically designed and offer more comfort and support while cycling. Moreover, the seat and seat depth of the Fun2Go 2 are adjustable, so they can be adapted to the individual needs of the driver and passenger. The seat is water-repellent and can withstand different weather conditions.

The comfortable backrest of the Fun2Go 2 is made of nylon mesh, making it breathable and water-resistant. In addition, the backrest supports the entire back.

4. Basket

The Fun2Go 2 comes standard with a basket at the front of the bike. This gives you a good view of your groceries and other valuables. When it's time for a short break while cycling, you can stay seated and grab your lunch and drink from the basket. The volume of the basket on the Fun2Go 2 is the same as the volume of the basket on the Fun2Go 1, which is located on the rear of the bike.

It is optional to have a luggage frame for a bicycle bag installed at the rear of the duo bike.

5. Drive system

Standaard is de Fun2Go 2 duo fiets uitgerust met 8 versnellingen voor zowel de bestuurder en de bijrijder, waardoor ze samen in dezelfde versnelling kunnen fietsen. Dit is een verbetering ten opzichte van de Fun2Go 1, waarbij de bestuurder standaard 8 versnellingen heeft en de bijrijder in een vaste versnelling moet fietsen (vrijloop). 

Daarnaast is het nog mogelijk om bij de Fun2Go 2 te kiezen voor een dubbele 8 versnellingsnaaf of een schakelnaaf. Lees hier meer over in het artikel ‘Aandrijving van de Van Raam Fun2Go duofiets’. Ook kan er gekozen worden voor bergverzet.

The Fun2Go 2 has a number of new options and accessories, such as a rear bumper, fixation vest, and a seat cushion. Another new addition is a universal insertion adapter at the back of the Fun2Go. Thanks to this adapter, you can easily switch between different options, such as a walker holder preparation or a holder for a foldable walker.

7. Optional pedal assistance

Just like with the Fun2Go 1, it is also possible to choose an electric duo bike with pedal assistance for the Fun2Go 2. With the Fun2Go 2, the battery is removable from the back. Additionally, a Fun2Go 2 with pedal assistance comes standard with a different, improved Silent smart display. With this, you can easily operate the pedal assistance through the information screen on your handlebars with two buttons and the button module on your handlebar with four buttons. An external charging point can be chosen in the backrest to charge the battery. This way, the battery can be charged via an easily accessible charging point without having to remove the battery from the duo bike.
