Utopia Velo winner with Silent System
Utopia Velo, the German partner of Van Raam, has emerged as the winner in 3 of the 13 categories with the ExtraEnergy test. It concerns the categories Family, Lifestyle and Tour. Utopia Velo buys the Silent system pedal support from Van Raam and mounts them on their own bikes. The Silent system has won thanks to the powerful electrical support of the motor and the large distance that can be cycled on one battery. The battery has a large capacity, so you can cycle a long way before it needs to be recharged.
At Van Raam, quality is of paramount importance. We are therefore pleased to receive international recognition for our drive systems. In the ExtraEnergy test 2018-2019, 71 other bicycles participated with the drive systems from other manufacturers such as Shimano, Bosch and Yamaha.
Silent system pedal support with e-bikes
Since 2011, Van Raam has been using the electric pedal support system: the Silent system. This system, which consists of the motors, batteries, controllers, a Smart display and software, has all been developed by Van Raam.
With the transport bike the Chat and the scooter bike Easy Go, the Silent system comes standard with the bike. With the other bikes, pedal support is an optional choice. One of the unique features of the pedal support is the function to cycle backwards. This makes it unnecessary to get off the bike when you need to turn, park or get out of the garage.

With the starting aid you get support from the motor to drive away and is pedaling not necessary. Once you are cycling you can choose from three different settings: Eco, Comfort and Sport.
The motor is very quiet so that you can hardly hear the pedal assistance while cycling. In addition, the system is easy to operate with the smart display and the Van Raam E-Bike app.

Van Raam E-Bike app
The Van Raam E-Bike app can be used with an electrical Van Raam bicycle. The app can be used as a luxury cycling computer while cycling with pedal assistance. It displays data such as speed, total distance, battery capacity and pedaling power. In addition, it has an SOS function and it is possible to use the app to adjust the pedal support settings 1, 2 and 3 of the electric motor according to the degree of support as it is suitable for you.
