Adaptive bicycle with pedal support
Since 2011, Van Raam has been using their own electric pedal support system. This system, which consists of the motors, batteries, controllers, a Smart display and software, has all been developed by Van Raam self.
With the Chat transport bike and the scooter bike Easy Go, the pedal support comes standard with the bike. With the other bikes, pedal support is an optional choice. The most unique features of the pedal support is, that you can also cycle backwards.
If you have a pedal support your lighting is also powered via the electrical system, find out how the lighting works in our article 'Lighting via the Van Raam electrical system'. With the starting aid you get extra support to start riding,
