10 'Rad Power Bikes' stories

May 2019 - November 2020


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.

Many electric bicycle and scooter companies have announced discounts for healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. But now Rad Power Bikes, the largest e-bike company in the US, is offering a big $200 discount to a wide range of people who serve their communities.

[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.
