frequently asked questions about van raam easy rider tricycle

1. What kind of tricycle is Van Raam's Easy Rider?

The Easy Rider is a tricycle with a seat for adults. The bike has a unique frame with a low entry and the center of gravity is lower. The forward pedal motion and suspension provides perfect comfort.  The bike is very maneuverable and has a small turning circle. In addition, the Easy Rider fits through a normal door and is therefore good to store in a shed. 

2. For whom is the Easy Rider suitable?

The Easy Rider is suitable for adults who no longer can or dare to ride a regular bicycle. The Easy Rider provides extra support and balance while cycling. This makes the bike popular among people with balance problems or who have a fear of falling. 

3. How do you cycle on an Easy Rider?

A tricycle cycles differently than a regular two-wheel bike. On a tricycle you have more stability for example. In addition, you steer differently on a tricycle than on a two-wheel bike. On the Easy Rider you sit up straight and you only steer with your arms. On a two-wheel bike you steer with your whole body, by hanging sideways in a curve for example. Read in the article 'Cycling on a tricycle for adults' tips for cycling on a tricycle.
