Furthermore these bicycles can be painted in almost any desired RAL-color. Read more about these low step through bikes here.

Balance: low step through bike

The Balance low step through bike by Van Raam is a comfort bike with a low step through and a uniquely designed frame. With the Balance bike you can always place both your feet on the ground without getting off the saddle and cycle with a comfortable movement of your legs. The great advantage of the Balance is the unique ergonomically designed seat. Wrists, shoulders and neck are hardly burdened while cycling. The more forward pedaling motion ensures that you use the power of your legs better than in case of conventional bikes. The lower center of gravity makes the cycling easier and more comfortable.

The Balance low entry bike has been a very comfortable and safe low entry bike for years. Read more about the Balance on the product page.

Maxi Comfort: low step bike with 3 wheels

The Maxi Comfort bike with low entry is a variation on the traditional tricycle. In addition to three wheels, the Maxi Comfort tricycle also has a low step through and a unique frame, allowing you to always have both feet on the ground and an ergonomic sitting position. With the Maxi Comfort, your wrists, neck and shoulders are hardly burdened.

You can easily get on and off, thanks to the low entry. When, due to balance problems or the fear of falling, you are no longer able and/or dare to ride a (standard) two-wheeler and/or need more support, stability and balance, a tricycle is a good choice.

You can read more about the Maxi Comfort on the product page.

I am Paula Brommer (47) and I live in Heerenveen, the Netherlands. I'm a mother of 2 children and work as a volunteer at Humanitas Thuisadministratie. I'm not really tall, namely 4.7 feet and I have asthma and fibromyalgia (a condition which you suffer from chronic pain in your muscles and connective tissue). Despite that, I would like to be active and not be classified as 'disabled', because you can't do much about it. In my spare time I like to cycle on my Balance low step through bike and enjoy the surroundings.

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.

Safe (electric) bike for elderly

In recent years, most deadly victims in traffic have been cyclists. Older cyclists on an electric bicycle are the main victims. Many of the articles in newspapers where these traffic accidents are named, point out the cause of these accidents: people often fall while getting on and off the bicycle, especially when sudden breaking is needed or when they need to come off the bike unexpectedly. An increased start speed or unexpected engine activity cause people to fall. Most accidents could have been prevented with a different type of electric bike, a type that does not cause difficulty when getting on and off and one of which the pedal support power assistance does not (de)activate unexpectedly. Van Raam manufactures the ideal bike for elderly: the (Tavara) Balance. Read more about the low step through bike Balance here.
