Low step through bikes for older men

The Balance bicycle and the Maxi Comfort tricycle are Van Raam's low step through bikes. Besides a low entry, these bicycles have a unique frame. Because of this frame, you do not sit above the crankshaft, but slightly behind it. You can therefore always reach the ground with both feet, while still sitting on the saddle. You also make a forward pedal movement, which enables you to give a lot of power. Neck, shoulders, back and wrists are less stressed because of the ergonomic sitting position. The Maxi Comfort tricycle is also very stable thanks to its three wheels. Read more about these two models in the article 'Men's low step bike by Van Raam'.

Bike with three wheels for old man

You opt for a tricycle if you need more balance when cycling and if you can no longer cycle on a bike with two wheels. Van Raam has various types of tricycles that allow you to cycle safely and get (back) on the road:

  • Traditional tricycle: This type of tricycle has a high seating position where you can get on and off easily.

  • Low step through tricycle: low entry and unique frame so you can always reach the ground with both feet.

  • Comfortable tricycle: with a seat, low entry and a forward pedaling movement, which takes away the unsafe and unstable feeling of a tricycle.

  • Tricycle with two front wheels and one rear wheel: these tricycles are especially for people who have difficulty estimating the width of the bicycle and whether it can go through or past somewhere.

What is the difference with a bicycle for younger people?

Van Raam looks at the height of the cyclist and listens to the needs and wishes. Van Raam's bikes are therefore not specifically designed for women or men, or for older or younger people. With a colour of your choice and various options and accessories, you can customise your own Van Raam bicycle for an older gentleman or woman.

User experience low step through bike Tavara Balance - Albert Smit
Until 2006 Van Raam made the Tavara Balance, the forerunner of the current Balance low step through two-wheeler bike. The Tavara Balance is also a low step through bike where the rider can always stand with two feet on the ground. Meanwhile, the Tavara Balance is replaced by the Balance bike, but people are still cycling around on this safe and comfortable bike. Among these Tavara bicycle users is Albert Smit. Albert Smit is 78 years old and has been using his Balance Tavara for over a decade. Read more about his experiences below.
