Video tandems for children and adults
A tandem or a twin is a form of bicycle/tricycle designed to be ridden by more than one person. The term tandem refers to the seating arrangement (fore to aft, not side by side). A tandem is a suitable alternative for people who cannot cycle or participate in traffic alone. In this article we will introduce you to an instructional video with various Van Raam tandems.
Tandems for adults and parent-child tandems
The Van Raam tandems are used to enjoy cycling together. Van Raam has various types of tandems where driver and passenger sitting behind one another.
- Twinny: Two-wheel tandem suitable for adults.
- Twinny Plus: three-wheel tandem suitable for adults.
- Kivo: Two-wheel tandem with a child in front and an adult behind. (the adult/supervisor sit’s in the back instead of in front, enabling to keep an eye on the child/passenger).
- Kivo Plus: Three-wheel tandem with a child in front of an adult and an adult. the adult/supervisor sit’s in the back instead of in front, enabling to keep an eye on the child/passenger).
All Van Raam tandems are available with pedal support / electric motor so that cycling is even easier.
In addition to the above-mentioned tandems, sitting behind together, we also produce a bike with two riders side by side, also called a sociable. Watch the instructionalvideo of the Fun2Go side-by-side tandem here.
