Unique riding characteristics of the Van Raam Maxi Comfort

The Maxi Comfort is a tricycle with 1 wheel at the front and 2 wheels at the back. This provides more stability while cycling than two-wheel bikes, which is an important advantage for people with balance problems.

1. Low step through

The Maxi Comfort is a variation on Van Raam's traditional tricycle. Thanks to its unique frame, the tricycle has an extra low and wide step through. This makes getting on and off the tricycle very easy. Because of the unique frame of the Maxi Comfort, you sit just behind the crankshaft. The seating position is therefore slightly lower, allowing you to keep both feet on the ground and still make an optimal knee movement. In addition, you can use more power while pedaling.

2. Ergonomic sitting position

The unique frame also provides an ergonomic seating position whereby back, shoulders, mind and wrists are less stressed. The lower seating position ensures that the center of gravity is lower, which makes cycling more comfortable.

3. Good overview

The Maxi Comfort has a semi-high sitting position. This gives you a good overview of traffic and surroundings, which contributes to a safe bike ride.

Maxi Comfort tricycle

"I used to cycle on a normal e-bike, but I couldn't get on and off anymore. This made me feel insecure and I hadn't cycled in a while, so my husband and I went in search of a special needs bike."
