Pedal support Van Raam Electric Bikes

Since 2011, Van Raam has its own electric pedal support, called the Silent System. The motor, battery, controller, Smart Display and software are developed by Van Raam, especially for the special needs bikes.

The Silent system is characterized by:

The Silent electric system is a 36 Volt system. The motor has a maximal continuous rated power of 250 Watt. The pedal sensor can detect movement and force. In combination with the unique software, the system makes an optimal support and efficient power use. The support is very smooth, so that unexpected movement of the motor is prevented.

The Silent electric system was in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018/2019 in Germany as worldwide “test-winner”.

You can cycle backwards with the Van Raam electric system when the pedal assistance is switched on with all the tricycles. This does not apply if the bike is equipped with a back-pedal brake. Read more in the article ‘Riding backwards with pedal support on a custom bike’.
