Electric rickshaw bike Chat
The Chat is an electric rickshaw bike and comes standard with the Silent HT motor, this is the unique Van Raam pedal assist system. The motor, batteries, the controller, the software and the Smart display have all been developed by Van Raam. The pedal assist is easy to operate via the display. This display has an on/off button, assistance mode 1 (eco-mode), assistance mode 2 (comfort mode), assistance mode 3 (sport mode) and a starting aid (the button with the bicycle symbol). With the starting aid, the motor gives you extra support for up to 10 seconds so that you can easily cycle away from a standstill.
A unique feature of the pedal assist is that it is possible to cycle backwards when the assistance is switched on. This allows you to turn around easily and safely.
Van Raam E-Bike App
All Van Raam bicycles that have pedal assistance, including the Chat, can use the Van Raam E-Bike App. With this app, it is possible to change the settings of the support mode, send SOS messages and view bike data such as speed, battery capacity and distance.
