Various types of the adult tricycle

Besides the traditional tricycles Maxi, and Midi which have two wheels in the back and one wheel in front, with a high seating, there are also tricycles with a low entry, where you can have both feet on the ground, at any given time. On the other side, an adult tricycle can also have two wheels in front and one wheel in the back. A comfortable adult tricycle with a low seating and entry position can also be found in the assortment by Van Raam. A special three in one mobility scooter bicycle from Van Raam can also be used without stepping. In order to give the best quality, Van Raam has since 2011 an own electrical pedal support called Silent System. The motor, battery, controller, the Smart Display and software are developed by Van Raam.

The traditional adult tricycle

A tricycle with-two wheels on the back side and one wheel in front that is who most people see as a ‘traditional tricycle'. The Maxi and Midi of Van Raam are examples of this type of custom bike. You pedal almost straight downwards and sit relatively high on the bike. With the frame of the tricycle — in contrast to the regular bicycle — you cannot bow in turns, riding a tricycle like this takes some time in order to get used to it. Children or people that have never ridden a two-wheel bike will have no trouble learning it. Experienced bikers can feel like they might tip over when they take their first turn. Because the tricycle has three wheels, this will of course not happen. For more information read our article on how to ride an adult tricycle. For adults who want a "traditional tricycle" but have trouble estimating the available width when riding, there is a tricycle with two wheels in front and one wheel behind. As a result, the cyclist can always assess whether he can go through or get by something.

Cycling on a tricycle for adults
Maxi Comfort adult tricycle Van-Raam

Adult tricycle with a low entry

The Maxi has also a special version, the Maxi Comfort. It has a low, wide entry and a different seating position. The seat is not located above the crank axle, but a little behind this in combination with a lower seating position you can always get both legs on the ground and still have optimal knee movement.

With Maxi comfort, stepping on the bike is different: you can pull the bike underneath you. Because the center of gravity is lower, this tricycle has a different comfort level. Because of this sitting position, your back, shoulders, neck and wrists are less stressed.
