Tricycle for teens and elderly
Van Raam has plenty of choice when it comes to tricycles for people of all ages. Our tricycle for toddlers is the colorful Husky. For elderly or people who no longer have the strength to pedal, Van Raam manufactures the Easy Go miniscooter/tricycle, on which you can bike (with and without electric pedal support) or drive around like on a miniscooter. Van Raam in Varsseveld designs and manufactures a wide range of tricycles.
Which single-person tricycle is the best?
Van Raam manufactures single-person tricycles with one wheel at the front and two wheels at the back, recumbent tricycles, semi recumbent tricycles and tricycles with one rear wheel and two front wheels. All of Van Raam’s tricycles (except for the smallest tricycle) are available with engine (electric pedal support). It is also possible to have it build in afterwards.
The model or type you choose is very personal. It is important to try out several tricycles prior to your purchase so you can see which one you like best. Would you like to go for a test ride or would you like additional information on several of our tricycles? Contact us and make an appointment at our showroom. Additionally, our dealers throughout the Netherlands have bicycles available for you to try. View Van Raam dealer page for more information.
Options and accessories for your tricycle
Not one person is the same and everyone has their own wishes. That is why all of Van Raam’s tricycles are custom made for every individual customer. All tricycles can be equipped with dozens of options. You can put your bicycle together however you like. You can choose the color of the frame, add an engine for electric pedal support and choose between many accessories such as: mirrors, baskets, footrests, cane holder, different seats, armrests etc. The process of putting your bicycle together is fairly easy with Van Raam’s online configurator.
Students and their ideal tricycle
What is a tricycle for children between the ages of 12 and 16 supposed to look like? This was the central question for a project on tricycles at the Ulenhof College high school from Doetinchem. Close to 300 students paid a visit to Van Raam, manufacturer of special needs bicycles.
These students have been working in small groups to determine what tricycle for teenagers should be like and what options, accessories and special gadgets should come with it. As starting point they had to choose between three different types of Van Raam’s tricycles:
Maxi: a traditional, stable tricycle with one front wheel and 2 rear wheels. The cyclist is right above the crank shaft.
Easy Rider: Comfortable tricycle with luxurious seat and unique frame that allows for a forward pedaling motion due to a lower center of gravity.
Easy Sport: sporty recumbent tricycle with lowered handlebars.
