What influences the range of a Van Raam E-Bike?

The range of the batteries, so how many kilometres the battery of an electric bike will last, depends on several factors. Check out this Video.

Van Raam E bike batteries

Van Raam has three different types of e-bike batteries that all use lithium-ion and are also all made in the Netherlands. Why does Van Raam has three different types of batteries? This is because all types of bikes are different and therefore also need different batteries. So how many kilometers an e bike battery lasts depends on the batterie model.

The two-wheeled tandems Kivo and Twinny, the low-entry bike Balance as well as the wheelchair bikes, the rickshaw bike Chat and the T-bikes Viktor and Viktoria have a slim lithium-ion battery.
The Van Raam tricycles are all equipped with a Cube lithium-ion battery. The heavy-ion battery can also be selected, the difference between the cube batteries is that the heavy-ion battery has a higher capacity. Learn more about the technical data on the page of the pedal support.

How many kilometers does a Van Raam E bike battery last?

The range of the batteries, i.e. how many kilometers an e-bike battery holds, depends on many different factors. Therefore, only a royal assessment of the range can be given.The average range of a standard battery is between 50 - 70 km. The most important factors that determine how many kilometers a battery lasts are the capacity of the battery and the bike type.

See the average range for each bike with a standard battery in the chart below, this data was collected by field measurements from app users. On the product page of a bike, you can also find the minimum and maximum range at the technical specifications.

Furthermore, the power you use yourself when pedaling and the selected level of support also has an affect on the range of your battery. We have explained some factors further below.

On the basis of the LED lights on the display you can see an indication whether the battery is fully charged (all lights are on), it is already about half empty (half of the lights are on) or almost empty.

Total weight, including rider

The weight of the bike and the person play a role. If you now ride with two people or one person, the battery is used differently. If you drive alone instead, the battery is less loaded and you can drive longer.

Condition of the tires

For example, if you have not properly inflated your tires, cycling will be much more difficult. So make sure that you have inflated the tires correctly! Then you also have a smaller chance of getting a flat tire and the tires last longer, which is also better for the environment. The recommended tire pressure is usually on the side of the outer tires.

Road surface condition

It matters a lot whether you have to cycle on flat roads or cycle up and down in the mountains.

Weather factors

Rain, wind and temperature, everything affects how much electricity your e-bike uses. You are lucky with a tailwind and it rolls easily, but with headwind it takes more energy to get ahead, of course. In cold temperatures, the energy flows through the system less easily.

Sustainable bike gearshifting

Unfortunately, one does not always have an influence on the situation, as in the points described above. However, if you want to get as far as possible with your electric bike with a full battery, it is important to switch your bike gearsin a sustainable and logical manner. So at a traffic light, switch back to first gear so that you can just start driving again.
