The OPair is a wheelchair bike with which you can transport a wheelchair user. A seat for the wheelchair user/passenger is affixed to the front of the bike. From the back, the cyclist has an overview on the road and view on the passenger. On the split frame version, the front part is easy to remove from the cycling component, which enables use as a wheelchair on location. The slightly angled front wheels provide increased driving comfort and stability. The OPair wheelchair bike has a modern design.
The depth adjustable seat of the OPair can be set to the passenger's measurements as well as the angle adjustable back rest and expandable side rests. There are also options for side rests, making the bike suitable for both children and small adults. The comfortable seat for the passenger has an accessible entry. The bike can be altered completely with a variety of options. A personal seat can be affixed to the bike. For all the options available for this bike, see our configurator or the pricelist of the OPair. The optional electric motor provides support while cycling. Read everything about electric pedal support (Pedelec) for this bike.
If you choose an 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 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.
