Unique riding characteristics of a front tricycle
Van Raam has two one-person bicycles in its range that have 2 wheels in front and 1 wheel behind. These are the Viktor and Viktoria tricycles. Read about the unique riding characteristics of these bikes in this article.
Viktor and Viktoria tricycles with two wheels in front
The Viktor and Viktoria are tricycles with two wheels in front and one in the back. The Viktor is designed for adults and its little sister Viktoria for adolescents and smaller adults. Read about the 5 unique riding characteristics of the Van Raam Viktor and Viktoria here.
1. Width of the bike easy to estimate
The Viktor and Viktoria tricycles are specially designed for people who have difficulty estimating the width of a tricycle. Because the bikes have two wheels in front, you can see at a glance whether the bike can go through or past.
2. Stable bike because of three wheels
The Viktor and Viktoria have three wheels which provides more stability than on a regular two-wheel bike. Tricycles often offer a solution for people who have difficulty keeping their balance.
3. Low and wide entry
The front wheel tricycles have a low and wide entry, which makes getting on and off easy. This means you don't have to lift your leg as high when getting on the bike.
4. Good overview due to high seating position
Despite the low entry level, the Viktor and Viktoria have a high seating position. This gives you a good overview of the road and surroundings while cycling.
5. Safe mounting and dismounting by parking brake
All Van Raam tricycles are equipped with a parking brake. By using the parking brake on the front tricycles, you can get on and off safely, without the tricycle rolling away. The parking brake can also be useful, for example, when stopping at a red traffic light. The bike cannot roll away and you do not have to get off.
Electric front wheel tricycle
The Viktor and Viktoria can optionally be equipped with the Silent system. This system provides pedal assistance while cycling. The Silent system is specially designed by and for Van Raam. The system has several advantages, including:
Three different assistance levels and start assist
