Van Raam footrests adapted bikes

Van Raam footrests

On almost all Van Raam bikes you have the possibility to have one or more footrests mounted on the pedals as an option. This gives you more stability and safety while cycling. With a simple ratchet strap you can easily tighten the Van Raam footrest. For people who do not (yet) need this extra fixation, the straps can also be pushed backwards or forwards. If more support is needed, the lower leg fixation is also an option. This is adjustable in height, so that it is adapted to the lower leg of the rider. The lower leg shell is also rounded to avoid pressure points on the leg. Van Raam has 2 sizes in the assortment, Fix 20 and Fix 25.

  • Fix 20 is suitable for shoe sizes 22 -36 (EU) with a minimum shoe width of 6,5 cm and a maximum shoe width of 9 cm and
  • Fix 25 is suitable for shoe sizes 37-48 (EU) with a minimum shoe width of 8,5 cm and a maximum shoe width of 13 cm.

At Van Raam there are different types of dealers where you can order and buy a Van Raam bicycle. You can take a test ride at some dealers or Van Raam itself.
