The Van Raam FunTrain is a side-by-side trailer that connects to the Fun2Go towing side-by-side tandem. The trailer is designed for two adults or older children to ride. The rider on the towing cycle has full control of the steering and brakes. Hand made in the Netherlands, this is a quality machine and built to last.

Standard features include Shimano 7-speed hub gears, cushioned seats (adjustable), secure tow-bar, automatic hydraulic overrun brake, hydraulic disc brakes, lights, basket, parking brake, security lock and environmentally friendly paint. The frame comes with a five-year warranty.
Up to two FunTrain trailers can be attached to the towing cycle – so six people can cycle together! A secured tow-bar connects each section to the other and a foldable support wheel helps move the trailer into position before connecting.
Multi-seat cycles are a wonderful social tool, allowing you to communicate with your passengers with ease.

Adapt and Customise
Electric drive system: this product is also available with an electric motor. The electric assist ‘Silent System’ is produced entirely by Van Raam. The motor, battery, controller, smart display, and software are developed especially for inclusive cycles. The motor also assists when reversing the cycle (pedalling backwards). A smartphone app connects with the settings of the e-system, and can record cycling data, including speed and distance. Battery capacity can also be viewed on the app, real-time.
The Silent electrical system is a 36 Volt system with 250-Watt motor. The pedal sensor detects movement and force and adjusts output accordingly. The system is very smooth – unexpected jolting, which can occur in other systems, is prevented with the Silent System.
