Heinzmann engine(till 2014)
On older bicycles from Van Raam you can find a different type of engine, in many cases this will be a Heinzmann engine. There are two types of the Heinzmann engine: the pas vario and the gas handle edition. With the pas vario, you are always obliged to pedal. With the gas handle edition you can reach a speed of 5 miles per hour without pedaling, above 5 miles per hour you need to pedal along and you will get electric pedal support. The throttle is your controller for the pedal support.

Heinzman and Silent system (until June 2016)
Van Raam has a uniquely designed electric power assissit system, the Silent system. Motor housing, batteries, controller, software and display are specially designed and developed for and by Van Raam. You have to always pedal alongside this type of system. It is a so called Pedelec On the Easy Go scooter bikes, you can also ride with 100% electric assist.
The noise-free Silent system is normally equipped with a starting aid: if required, you can ride at a speed of up to about 5 km/per hour without having to pedal for a distance of about 10 m using an extra pushbutton on the display. Thereafter, you have to pedal yourself. In case of tricycles you can even cycle in reverse with the electric assist switched on.
The Silent motors of Van Raam are equipped with traction control. This means that the motor does not slip on a slippery surface.
There is a standard Silent motor and a Silent HT. The Silent HT gives about one-and-a-half times the output of the standard Silent motor. This HT motor is particularly intended for the heavier bikes, for use in hilly areas or in the case of low pedalling capacity of (both) the cyclists.
The motion sensor, the force sensor in the pedals and the unique software system ensure an optimum support and efficient energy consumption. Thus the power assist will be gradually built up and broken down. This prevents sudden actions of the engine.
Through the unique controller and software each motor can be individually adapted to the desired support for the user. So your special bike has a unique tuned motor system exactly programmed to your needs.
The Silent system of Van Raam has already been crowned with international prizes. This is owing to the fact that Van Raam has already attained many years of experience with the designing of electric bikes, which can take on really heavy loads.
The Silent System emerged twice as a global “Test Sieger” in a test in Germany in 2014, 2013 and in March 2012.
