Support levels

You can set the desired level of support on a Van Raam bicycle. The electrical system has 3 levels. You can change the support level by using the plus and minus button close to the handle of your bike. 

  • Plus button: Allows you to raise the assistance level by one step to a maximum of assistance level 3.
  • Minus button: Allows you to lower the assistance level by one step to minimum assistance level 1.
The higher the level, the more assistance you get. This also requires more energy from your battery, so you can cycle fewer kilometres. The number of kilometres you can cycle also strongly depends on other factors. Read more about this in the article 'How many kilometers does a Van Raam e-bike battery last?'.

Starting aid

Van Raam's Silent electric system is equipped with a starting aid. This button can be found on the button module at the handle of the bike and can be recognised by the bicycle icon. When you keep this button pressed while cycling away, you get extra support so you don't have to exert as much force yourself when cycling away.
