Enjoy additional ease with its incorporated bike and electronic bike functions as well as the electric drive function. Numerous other models and tricycle types are also available, all of which are designed and manufactured by Van Raam in Varsseveld, The Netherlands. 
 

Which single person tricycle is the best?

At Van Raam we produce single person tricycles with one wheel in front and two at the rear, seated tricycles, recumbent tricycles and tricycles with two wheels at the front and one at the rear. All Van Raam tricycles, with the exception of the smaller trikes, can be supplied with (electric) pedal support power assistance. Retrofitting a motor is also possible at Van Raam.

Selecting the right tricycle depends on personal preference. It’s advisable to test different models before you purchase one in order to see which one best suits your needs.

Students and the perfect tricycle

What should a tricycle for children between 12 and 16 actually look like? This pivotal question was central in the tricycle project for HAVO/VWO Technasium students from the Ulenhof College in Doetinchem. Close to 300 students visited Van Raam recently where they were busy brainstorming on what a tricycle aimed for a younger audience should look like and which accessories and gadgets it must be equipped with. As a starting point, they were allowed to choose between three different Van Raam tricycles:

  • Maxi: a conventional and balanced tricycle with 1 wheel in front and 2 at the rear, the seat is situated right above the crankshaft.       
  • Easy Rider: a comfortable tricycle with a deluxe seat and uniquely designed frame. Forward pedalling is attained as a result of its low centre of gravity. 
  • Easy Sport: a sporty recumbent tricycle with handlebars situated on either side of the seat.

During the visit to Van Raam, students were given a tour on the factory floor and were able to try and test various tricycle models as well as other Van Raam bicycles. With the help of self-composed mood boards, they conveyed their ideas for the perfect tricycle to Technical Director Jan-Willem Boezel , Research & Development manager Jolien Heeman and Design Engineer Oliver Davina 

Almost all students unanimously agreed on 1 thing; the need for separate tricycles for boys and girls. Particular attention was also paid to details such as distinctive bike handles, trim and colour. Colour usage too must be strictly distinguishable, one for boys and another for girls.

Luckily, Van Raam bicycles are available in nearly all RAL-colours so everyone can choose his or her favourite.  

Numerous other useful ideas were presented such as additional baskets/crates on the bike and gadgets like remote controlled bike locks. As a company, it’s always inspiring to hear what 300 students think about our products and their vision on what a tricycle should look like!

Tricycles for seniors and the elderly

Van Raam also had the pleasure of having seniors from the KBO (Katholieke Bond van Ouderen) from Aalten over for a visit. This Catholic union for the elderly is an association for senior citizens aged 50 and above.

An amiable and engaged group, they took a tour of the Van Raam factory and had their turn trying out different bikes and tricycles. At this age, the Easy Go scooter trike is a perfect fit with its electric functions allowing you to stay mobile even without pedalling!
