The Balance is a comfort bike with a very 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 pedalling motion ensures that you use the power of your legs better than in case of conventional bikes. The lower centre of gravity makes the cycling easier and more comfortable. This bike is much safer than a normal low step through bike because you do not have to get on and off the saddle at a stop.
For all the options possible on this bike, see our configurator or the pricelist of the Balance. The Balance is available in different frame sizes. The smaller and larger frame of the updated second generation Balance will be available for order from January 2023. See the article 'The Balance 1 low step through bike from Van Raam' for more information about the lowered and raised frame of the Balance 1.
The Balance is also available with an electric motor for power. If you choose optional electric pedal assist, it will be delivered as a smart e-bike. It allows you to view a lot of information about your battery and smart e-bike from a distance. For example, you can use the app to review biked routes- and battery data. Read more about the Van Raam smart e-bike on our Van Raam app page.
