Van Raam Easy Rider sitting tricycle rated best in test by independent commission of the Norwegian government
An expert, independent commission in Norway has tested different types of special needs bicycles in connection with a multi-year public procurement. Several aspects were important for this tender. These were rated with a specific weighting coefficient. One of the categories focused on the sitting tricycles.
The sitting tricycles were evaluated on: Price, quality of the frame and the parts, quality and reliability of the motor and charger, the ability to customise the bike to suit individual needs, the bike's accessories, ease of use, reliability and overall impression. Of course the design of the bicycles was also an important factor.
Test winner: Easy Rider
In addition to the Easy Rider by Van Raam, several other bikes were tested in the sitting tricycle category, including the Cratos by Huka and the Slider by Draisin. In terms of overall quality, the Easy Rider by Van Raam did much better than the other bikes in the test
For example, the Easy Rider's quality was rated 2.5 times higher than the Cratos by Huka. Other bikes simply lacked many features, could not go in reverse, had a loud motor, had an unsafe, unguarded chain, and much poorer handling.
Despite cheaper tenders offered by other suppliers, the Easy Rider still had the highest overall score by far. This once again shows that quality and experience win it in the end.
Best electric pedal assistance
What stood out with this electric pedal assistance, were its power, individual customisation options, user-friendly app, the ability to reverse, its completely silent operation and simple controls. Van Raam's Silent electric motors were more than sufficiently distinctive and powerful to finish at the top of the list.
Highest test results for Van Raam bikes
Van Raam's products also had the highest test results in other categories. Traditional tricycles: In addition to the Easy Rider, the Mini, Midi and Maxi, the Fun2Go side-by-side tandem, the Twinny and Kivo three-wheel tandems were all assessed as best in their respective categories. We are very proud that this expert, independent commission rated the Van Raam Easy Rider as the best in its category.
