Eurobike Award 2019

The Eurobike Award is one of the leading international design awards for companies in the bicycle industry. New and innovative products are assessed and evaluated by an independent panel of expert jury members. The awards will be handed out at the Eurobike, the world’s largest international bike fair. Here you can immerse yourself in all the beautiful things bikes have to offer from 4 to 7 September 2019. Visit the Eurobike website for more information.
 
In 2019, the 15th edition of the Eurobike Award took place. Van Raam competed together with just under 400 other entries for one of the 43 coveted awards, of which the Gold Award is the highest achievable award. 
 
Because the award is given by a non-profit and independent panel of expert jury members, the award is an important tool during the consideration and buying process of consumers.

With the Eurobike Gold Award we get the confirmation that our rickshaw transport bike/ cargo bike Chat is of high quality in the field of product innovation, functionality, quality and durability. Of course we are very happy with this international recognition and it continues to encourage us to make valuable bicycles for people with disabilities!

Rickshaw transport bike Chat

The Van Raam rickshaw transport bike is suitable for a wide range of cyclists. This social bike allows young families to go out on a nice trip, for example during a holiday or a family weekend. In addition, the bicycle also serves as a tool against loneliness for the elderly. Together with an attendant they can still explore their area and feel the wind in their hair while “Chatting” with each other.
 
Besides the fact that the rickshaw bike looks nice, the Chat is also very comfortable to ride. This is partly due to the unique riding characteristics and ergonomic seat of the transport bike. Read more about it in the article ‘Unique riding characteristics of rickshaw transport bike Chat’.

The Chat is not the first bike in the Van Raam product range to be praised with a Eurobike Award. In 2011 we already received this beautiful prize with our bicycle taxi for children: the GoCab. With this bicycle taxi it is possible to transport 8 children in a safe and sustainable way. Read more about this in the article ‘GoCab pedicap Van Raam wins Eurobike Award’.
