Backwards cycling with wheelchair bikes, tricycles and tricycle-tandems
More and more Van Raam bikes leave our factory with electrical assistance/ pedal support (e-bike). The electric pedal support increases the reach of the cyclist enormously. With wind or a hilly area the driver can easily cover large distances.
We notice that many people still do not know that with all our electric Van Raam bikes with three wheels you can also cycle backwards*.
The reverse mode is activated by pedalling backwards from a standing position. Within a few seconds the motor is activated and the tricycle cycles at a speed of about 2 km/h backwards (when you start to pedal backwards).
Cycling backwards is possible with all Van Raam electric tricycles, electric wheelchair bikes, electric tricyce tandems and the electric scooter bike*.
Van Raam wheelchair bike and tricycle: reverse parking
Reverse parking with a electric wheelchair bike, tricycle or side by side tandem is no problem!
The electric assist on Van Raam cycles provides the ability for the pilot to pedal backwards and have the cycle back up. The video below shows that feature on two models (the OPair wheelchair bike and the Easy Rider tricycle).
