The Easy Rider adaptive tricycle from Van Raam

When you don’t have the possibility to cycle on a standard two-wheel bike (anymore), you will look at the possibilities that do exist when you want to cycle: an adaptive tricycle. The Easy Rider is one of the adaptive tricycles in the Van Raam assortment. The tricycle has many satisfied users and is a popular bike. In this article, you can discover more about the Easy Rider adaptive trike from Van Raam.

Van Raam adaptive bikes

An adaptive bike is a bike that is specially made for your needs and is adjusted to your wishes. With the help of an adaptive bike, you can go on a bike ride on your own or together with someone else. This might be because you can cycle on your own again, or because someone else can cycle together with you. Van Raam produces different types of adaptive bikes. One of the bikes that Van Raam produces is the Easy Rider adaptive tricycle.

The Easy Rider adaptive tricycle

Van Raam’s Easy Rider is an adapted trike for adults. The bike has one wheel at the front and two rear wheels. This ensures that the bike is extra stable and makes it nearly impossible to fall over with the tricycle.

Because of the unique frame of the bike, the tricycle has a low entry and a low seating position. The Easy Rider provides a stable and safe feeling due to the combination of the low seating position, a comfortable seat with an individually adjustable backrest and the handlebar in front of you. This low seating position allows you to make a different pedaling movement while cycling than on a standard two-wheel bike, where you sit above the bottom bracket. You sit behind the bottom bracket on the Easy Rider and pedal forwards. This forward pedaling movement provides a lot of comfort while cycling.
Most Easy Rider users think it’s an easy tricycle to ride. This is partly due to the perfect riding comfort. The sitting position of the bike reduces the strain on your shoulders, back and neck. Read more in the article ‘Unique riding characteristics of the Easy Rider tricycle’.

See all the advantages and benefits of the Easy Rider below:

  • Comfortable seating with backrest support

  • Perfect riding comfort, cycles lightly

  • Short turning radius

  • Fits through a normal door

  • Provides a stable and secure feeling

  • Forward pedal movement

  • Favorite with many users
  • Cycles easily
