Unique riding characteristics of the Van Raam Maxi tricycle

People who are no longer able to cycle on a regular bicycle are looking for a good and safe alternative. A Van Raam tricycle is especially for people who want extra support and stability while cycling.

Van Raam's adult tricycle Maxi is a tricycle with one front wheel and two rear wheels. View 5 unique riding characteristics of Van Raam's Maxi adult tricycle here.

Unique riding characteristics Van Raam Maxi tricycle - stability and safety

1. Stability and safety

The three wheels of the Maxi tricycle ensure stability and balance and that you don't fall over, as you don't have to keep your balance yourself. This gives you a feeling of safety while cycling. Read more about cycling with a tricycle in the article 'Cycling on a tricycle for adults'.

The Van Raam Maxi is a traditional tricycle. You have a high seating position, just like on a regular bicycle. This high seating position provides a good overview of the road, which in turn contributes to safe cycling.

2. Easy to get on

The Maxi has a very accessible entry, which helps when getting on and off the tricycle. Thanks to the three wheels on the Maxi, you won't fall over easily, so you can sit down comfortably on the bike. All Van Raam tricycles have a parking brake. If you put the Van Raam Maxi tricycle on the parking brake, you can get on and off safely, without the tricycle rolling away.

Optionally, you can choose an extra low and wide entry, which makes getting on and off even easier.

Unique riding characteristics Van Raam Maxi tricycle - light cycling and agile

3. Light, smooth cycling and agile

With the Maxi tricycle for adults you cycle and steer very lightly, which makes cycling with a disability easier. As an option, you can choose gears with, for example, a freewheel or back-pedal brake.

In addition, Van Raam's Maxi tricycle is quite manoeuvrable because of the single front wheel and because Van Raam's bicycles are equipped with a differential.

Unique riding characteristics Van Raam Maxi tricycle - developed model

4. Developed model

Van Raam manufactures and develops almost all of its bicycles in-house. We try to do this as efficiently and well as possible. We are always innovating, improving and optimizing our bicycles and work processes. We do this in our modern factory in Varsseveld.

The Maxi tricycle is a trendy designed bicycle that has been further developed over the years. The model was given a new and modern design in 2021. Several parts of the Maxi have a fresh new colour. In addition, the chain cases are injection-moulded instead of vacuum-formed. This injection-moulded material is strong and discolours less quickly. Read more about this in the article 'New design for the Maxi and Midi tricycles'.

Unique riding characteristics Van Raam Maxi tricycle - pedal support and smart e-bike

5. Pedal support and Smart E-Bike

The Van Raam Maxi tricycle is optionally available with pedal support. If you opt for an electric tricycle, you'll get an electric tricycle with the unique Van Raam Silent System. This pedal support system was specially developed for and by Van Raam.

Cycling on the Maxi tricycle is even easier with pedal support. Some of the advantages of the Van Raam Silent System and an electric tricycle are:

  • Easy to operate system

  • 3 settings + personal adjustable support

  • Starting aid

  • Cycling forwards and backwards with pedal support

  • An almost noiseless motor

From July 2020, all Van Raam bicycles that are equipped with pedal support will be delivered as Smart E-Bikes. This is a 'smart bike' that is connected to the internet and communicates via the battery. This smart electric bicycle has a smart battery, which has the advantage that you can remotely view a lot of information about your bicycle and its battery(ies) via the app on your phone.
