15 'Rad Power Bikes' stories

May 2019 - July 2021

Rad Power Bikes has grown to become the largest electric bicycle brand in the US, largely due to the combination of low cost and high value e-bikes.

The company offers nearly a dozen different models of electric bicycles. The various e-bikes cover different types of riding from recreational, sport, commuter/transport, utility/cargo and even commercial applications.

However the company’s largest markets are likely recreational riders and those looking for economical e-bikes for local transportation.

All of Rad Power Bikes’ electric bicycles can reach speeds of up to 20 mph (32 km/h) in the US and generally have ranges of around 25-50 miles (40-80R km), depending on the type of riding and terrain.

Below is a list of the company’s currently available electric bicycles:

Among Rad Power Bikes’ various models, the RadMission and RadCity models are more transportation/commuter oriented with typical street bike styles, the RadRovers and RadMini Step-Thru (folding) are more recreational oriented with their large fat-tires, the RadMini is a great folder for those needing a small format e-bike, and the RadRunner and RadWagon are great for utility and cargo uses.

However, all of Rad’s e-bikes are extremely versatile, meaning just about any model can be used for any type of riding. We often seen riders using a single Rad Power e-bike for a combination of pleasure and utility riding.

We have reviewed nearly every Rad Power Bike model, and you can find our review articles and videos below, along with a series of news articles about updates and new product launches from the company.

The RadRunner Plus from Rad Power Bikes is perhaps one of my favorite all-time, do-anything electric bicycles – and that’s coming from someone with hundreds of electric bike reviews under his belt. I may have ridden some e-bikes that go faster or carry more passengers or fulfill any number of specific niches. But if I had to choose one single e-bike that could handle as many different daily tasks and types of riding as possible, I think it would be the RadRunner Plus.

There’s no two ways about it, Rad Power Bikes is absolutely crushing it in the e-bike market. The Seattle-based electric bicycle manufacturer holds the largest share of the US market by far with all other companies competing for a distant second.

To learn more about what the leading e-bike brand is up to next, we caught up with founder and CEO Mike Radenbaugh. In speaking with Mike, it is obvious that he is an e-bike rider first and CEO of an e-bike company second – his passion for the electric bike community shines through every time he talks about the company. Having founded Rad Power Bikes after working on his own experiments with building electric bikes in his garage, he’s seen the larger industry grow even as Rad has grown within it.

[October 2020 update: Unfortunately it was discovered that a large number of people who did not qualify for these discounts were abusing the system to take advantage of Rad Power Bikes’ generosity.
