Balance, low step through bike

The Balance low step through bike by Van Raam is a comfort bike with a low step through and a uniquely designed frame. With the Balance bike you can always place both your feet on the ground without getting off the saddle and cycle with a comfortable movement of your legs. The great advantage of the Balance is the unique ergonomically designed seat. Wrists, shoulders and neck are hardly burdened while cycling. The more forward pedaling motion ensures that you use the power of your legs better than in case of conventional bikes. The lower center of gravity makes the cycling easier and more comfortable.

The Balance low entry bike has been a very comfortable and safe low entry bike for years. Read more about the Balance on the product page.

Tricycle low step through bike Maxi Comfort by Van Raam

Maxi Comfort: low step bike with 3 wheels

The Maxi Comfort bike with low entry is a variation on the traditional tricycle. In addition to three wheels, the Maxi Comfort tricycle also has a low step through and a unique frame, allowing you to always have both feet on the ground and an ergonomic sitting position. With the Maxi Comfort, your wrists, neck and shoulders are hardly burdened.

You can easily get on and off, thanks to the low entry. When, due to balance problems or the fear of falling, you are no longer able and/or dare to ride a (standard) two-wheeler and/or need more support, stability and balance, a tricycle is a good choice.
