Electric tricycle for seniors

As you get older, your sense of balance may deteriorate, you may have less strength and you may be afraid of falling when cycling on a regular bike with two wheels. Fortunately, more and more seniors are discovering the solution to staying mobile and opting for an electric tricycle for seniors with pedal support. Read more about electric tricycles for seniors here and read the story of Gunda Krauss and her Easy Rider.

Gunda Krauss and her Easy Rider

Chiemgau Tourismus (in Germany) was at Van Raam dealer TOUR-ME in Chieming am Chiemsee for an interview with Reinhard Schuster (Managing Director at TOUR-ME) and Gunda Krauss. Gunda Krauss has been riding an Easy Rider tricycle for a long time. In Chiemgau there are endless possibilities for cycling. For sporty riders, young and old, there is the right tour for everyone. Even seniors and people with a disability who don't feel so confident on bikes with two wheels can cycle on a tricycle.
 
Gunda Krauss came all the way from Munich to Chieming (in Germany) to pick up her electric tricycle Easy Rider. Gunda got a more powerful Silent HT motor from Van Raam installed in the electric tricycle because she cycles about 6,000 kilometres per year. A few years ago, Gunda Krauss cycled from Munich to Rügen on her Easy Rider electric tricycle. Senior Gunda loves her tricycle. After all, she wouldn't be as mobile without it. Gunda cycles with the Easy Rider 2.

Electric tricycle for seniors Easy Rider

The Easy Rider tricycle is clearly different from other tricycles. The unique frame of this tricycle has a low entry and a stable lower seating position. This gives you a lower centre of gravity which gives you security and stability. This safe and secure feeling is also supported by the fact that you sit on a seat with backrest instead of a saddle and you have the handlebars in front of you. Van Raam has completely renewed the Easy Rider in 2021: the Easy Rider 3.
 
The forward pedalling movement and frame suspension ensure perfect riding comfort. The Easy Rider has a comfortable seat with adjustable back support, lower back support, and raised edges on the side for better sitting comfort and lateral support. The seat is easily adjustable.
 
Do you want the Easy Rider to be an electric tricycle? Pedal support can help you if you don't have enough strength yourself or if you want to cover longer distances. Van Raam has developed its own pedal support system. The Silent System is a unique and award-winning system and is characterised by its easy use, the possibility of riding backwards and the possibility of individually programming the support.
