The Kivo Plus in the tender of Norway

In the category tricycle tandem bikes rear and support motor for children, teenagers and adults, besides the Kivo Plus from Van Raam, the Kaptein Duo from Draisin and the Copilot 3 from Huka were tested. A child can sit on the front of the Kivo Plus tandem so that he/she can see the surroundings well and an adult sits on the back of the tandem where he/she has a good view of the child and the surroundings. Outstanding, according to the Commission in the tandem bicycle test was also that the parent child tandem Kivo Plus has small handlebars, which is best suited to teenagers and children of the user group. A special handlebar for your adapted bike can help to adjust the bike to your needs and increase the riding comfort.
This means that the Kivo Plus is safe, stable and easy to use and does not have a high risk of rollover. The bike is equipped with two rear wheels, which ensure that the user remains firmly seated without tipping over when riding around corners. Among other things, these features put the Kivo Plus in second place and therefore in the tender after the Kaptein Duo. This was originally developed in cooperation with us by Van Raam.

Adaptable, safe and stable parent child tandem

The Norwegian Government finds that the bicycle has good saddle and steering adjustments, as these can be done without tools. This makes it easy to adjust the bicycle to different riders and passengers. According to the Tender Commission, taking part in bicycle traffic is also safe and easy, as the three-position gear hub with a twist grip is located directly on the handlebars and is easy to operate.
A lot of safety and stability is provided by the parking brake, which is easy to operate with the lever on the handlebars, this and the two wheels at the back of the bike ensure that the bike remains stable when getting on and off. Furthermore, the two wheels at the back of the bike give the rider a stable and secure feeling even during the ride. The passenger sits securely and stably during the ride on a suspended saddle with a suspension system, which further enhances the seating comfort.
