About the bike
The award-winning Chat is a new trishaw model developed over an 18-month period by Van Raam, a company that has been designing and manufacturing quality adaptive cycles in the Netherlands since 1974. The Chat features a 1-meter wide cushioned seat, with a front footrest that lowers completely to the ground, activated by the pilot from behind the passenger box. The passenger box rests on a spring suspension, which absorbs some of the road bumps and makes the ride for the passengers more comfortable.

 

The Chat comes with a 60 Nm electric-assist motor that can be controlled both by a console on the handlebar and by the Van Raam app on your smartphone. It even has a ‘reverse gear’ – you simply pedal backward, and the Chat backs up! The 8-speed derailleur offers plenty of gearing options. The cast aluminum front wheels provide strong support for the passengers and the trishaw.
