Cycling together with a child

In addition to the single-person bicycles for children, Van Raam also offers bicycles in which, for example, a parent, another family member or a therapist can cycle with the child. Our Kivo Tandem and Kivo Plus three-wheel tandem, as well as the OPair wheelchair bike or the Fun2Go double rider cycle are suitable for this. Read more about these bikes below.

Tandem bike Kivo by Van Raam

Kivo tandem

The Kivo is a child-parent tandem with a grown-up sitting behind and a child sitting in front. The child can get a good view of the environment. The rider sitting behind can always keep a good watch on the child. The Kivo has a low step through and therefore, is easier to use. You can order the Kivo tandem with various options. Normally the Kivo has 8 gears and a freewheel switch. You can use the switchable freewheel to determine with 3 positions whether and how the passenger pedals.

This are the three positions:

  1. This is a function with a continuous movement of the pedal and the co-driver must pedal along.
  2. The pedals of the co-driver move independently of the pedals of the main driver. The pedals run freely and the co-driver cannot cycle.
  3. In this position, the pedals of the co-driver move independently of the pedals of the main driver. The co-driver can cycle along.
