Easy Rider tricycle voted test winner

The Norwegian government's independent commission has tested Van Raam's Easy Rider tricycle in connection with the tender procedure for a multi-year tender. Among other things in the points, price, absolute quality and the possibilities to adapt the bike to individual circumstances, the available accessories on the bike and the user-friendliness were tested. The design of the bikes also played a role. In this article you can read why the Easy Rider test winner.

Double test winner: Easy Rider tricycle

In the category, tricycle, the Easy Rider from Van Raam, the Cortes by Huka, the Whistle Scoobo by PFAU tec and the Trigo Up by Hase were tested. The Easy Rider tricycle once again took the first place with the rear wheel motor and at the same time also took second place with the front wheel motor in the "Tricycle with seat, gearbox and auxiliary motor for school-age children, adolescents and adults" assessment of the quality of the Easy Rider was twice as high as with the Whistle Scoobo from PFAU tec.

Quality pays off 

It was particularly striking for the jury of the Tender Commission that the Easy Rider has very good adjustment options. The handlebar, the steering position, the seat and the backrest can be adjusted separately. The individually adjustable backrest is made of Velcro, which makes it easy to adjust the seating comfort to the individual user. This offers many possibilities to adjust the bike to the individual user, which is very positive for the end user. Furthermore, the seat height and the low entry height are ideal, that makes it easy for users with restricted freedom of movement and for people who cannot easily get on and off. The parking brake also ensures that the bike remains stable and the driver e.g. in case of balance problems can easily get on and off.

Van Raam electric pedal support: test winner

The Easy Rider has an individual pedal support with the best and most diverse application options of all competitors in this category. For example, many options were not possible with other bicycles, and couldn't ride backwards as with the reverse function of the Van Raam pedal support, the motor from other providers also produced too much noise. It was striking that the motor switched on quickly when pedalling and the Van Raam system offered good support. In 2019, this again led to Van Raams pedalling support winning the ExtraEnergy Test.
