Electrical pedal support by Van Raam
The Chat transport bike comes standard with Van Raam's Silent HT electrical pedal support. Van Raam has had its own electric pedal support system since 2011, called the Silent System. This means that the motors, the batteries, the controller, the Smart display and the software have been developed by and for Van Raam.
The pedal suport by Van Raam has some useful benefits. For example, the pedal support is easy to operate and allows you to cycle both forwards and backwards. The reverse cycle is very pleasant, because you can stay on your cargo bike with, for example, reverse parking. The very powerful electric motors also have the advantage that they are as good as silent, so you can hear the birds singing in the forest!
Do you have trouble to start cycling with your bike? The pedal support by Van Raam is also equipped with a starting aid (see video below). By pressing the starting aid for a few seconds (the pedal support must, of course, be switched on) you will notice that the cargo bike automatically moves forward for a few meters. The rider can then continue pedaling and thus easily cycles away at an intersection or traffic light.
