The rickshaw bike Chat is meant to ride together with children and/or adults who are no longer able to participate in traffic on their own. An accompanying person cycles with one or two persons. The two people who join the group as a co-driver are seated next to each other in a specially designed cockpit where design and ergonomics come together. The driver sits behind this cockpit and thus has an overview of the road, but also of the occupants.
The Chat rickshaw bike comes standard with our electric pedal support, which can be used to cycle backwards, among other things. Because the electric pedal support is standard, you get access to our Van Raam E-Bike App. This App is free and can be used as a luxury cycling computer for Van Raam bicycles with pedal assistance. Read everything about electric pedal support (Pedelec) for this bike.
With the electric pedal support, the bike 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 view bike routes and see where your connected bike is located - this is especially good against theft. Read more about the Van Raam Smart E-Bike on our Van Raam App page.
Optionally, the Chat can be extended with a canopy, so that the passengers are protected from sun and rain. This canopy is not part of the standard version and has to be ordered separately. Look for all options in our configurator or on the price list of the Chat.
The Chat gives people the opportunity to talk to each other, chat(ting). In the meantime you can enjoy a comfortable bike ride through a combination of suspension, correct ergonomics and soft goods. Elderly people can, for example, explore the city together with young people and take on the role of 'guide' and tell stories from the past, thus bringing them out of their isolation for a while.
Besides the fact that this rickshaw bicycle offers a solution for the elderly, the Chat is also suitable for people who want to go on a guided tour, but also for care institutions, families and holiday parks.

In times of corona, it is difficult to keep 1.5 meters distance on the Chat rickshaw bike when you are sitting next to each other. Therefore, we offer as an option the intermediate screen. This physical barrier between the passengers makes it possible to cycle together, without contaminating each other. Want to know more about the Chat intermediate screen?
