The Van Raam Fun2Go side by side tandem was part of this. Read more about the Fun2Go as a test winner in this article.

In addition to the price, the quality of the frame, the quality as well as the reliability of the bicycle, battery charger, and the possibilities to adapt the bicycle to the individual circumstances, the accessories used on the bicycle, the user-friendliness, the design of the bicycles and the overall impression were also evaluated.

In the category of duo bikes, in addition to the Van Raam Fun2Go, the Orthros by Huka, the Toogether E by Draisin and the DuoC by Pf mobility were tested.

Duo bike with the highest quality 

Van Raam's Fun2Go has received the best quality rating. The bike received 30% more points in quality than the duo bike Orthos from Huka and DuoC from Pf mobility. Although other suppliers offered lower prices, the Fun2Go is also the best duo-cycle in the overall ranking, considering the quality and price. This quality has been optimized over the years, as the Fun2Go has been in existence for many years. Read all about it in our article 'Van Raam duo bike Fun2Go over the years".

The individual adjustment possibilities of the Fun2Go duo bike for the saddle, handlebars and armrests make the bike unique for each individual user. The bike has a highly functional seat with a rotating function and foldable armrests that make it easy for cyclists to get on and off the bike. The Van Raam Fun2Go was also number one in the previous Tender.

"The Fun2Go meets the usage requirements very well and is the best of all products offered in this category."
Pedal support for the Fun2Go side by side tandem test winner

The best motor support

With the electric pedal support, the power, the individual adjustment possibilities, the easy user application, as well as the possibility to ride backwards, and the almost silent cycling with the Van Raam pedal supoort was striking. The electric motor from Van Raam was more than outstanding and powerful enough to be at the top. Where the motor systems of other suppliers did not make any progress, this was no problem for the electric parallel tandem Fun2Go by Van Raam, also due to the very good starting aid.
