May 2019 - April 2022
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 (note that prices sometimes change, but we’ll do our best to keep these figures accurate):
- RadMission ($1,199)
- RadRunner ($1,499)
- RadRunner Plus ($1,699)
- RadCity ($1,599)
- RadCity Step-Thru ($1,599)
- RadCity Plus ($1,999)
- RadRover ($1,499)
- RadRover Step-Thru ($1,499)
- RadRover Plus ($1,999)
- RadMini ($1,499)
- RadMini Step-Thru ($1,499)
- RadWagon ($1,999)
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.
