Standard features include Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub, rear hydraulic brake, front hub brake, rear carrier rack, security lock, enclosed chain guard, lights, and environmentally friendly paint. The frame comes with five-year warranty.
Designed with increased space between the saddle of the front rider and the handle of the rear rider. A low step-though frame makes it easy for both the front and rear rider to mount and dismount.
The Twinny tandem is available in a three-wheel version. Click here to see the Twinny Plus tandem tricycle.
Adapt and Customise
An ingenious clutch can be integrated into the transmission system, making it possible to disengage the pedalling for the front rider using a lever on the handlebars, so the pedalling passenger can be obliged to pedal, or allowed to freewheel, at the flick of a switch!
Steer-from-the rear (rear rider has full control of the steering and brakes, with the pedalling passenger at the front seat).
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.
