Announcing the Debut of the RadRunner Electric Utility Bike

Rad Power Bikes (United States) - Press Release: The RadRunner is a sleek, fun, and functional ebike that’s part moped, part cargo bike, and totally rad. Custom features at our lowest price point yet.

Oh yes, we did.

Patent-pending Passenger Package:

Other ebikes with bench-style seats have one thing in common: they offer zero means for the rider to adjust the height of their seat. This means nearly everyone is always pedaling in a poor riding position.

We are changing that in a big way. The RadRunner is the very first ebike or scooter to have an adjustable driver's seat that can either be completely flush with the passenger's seat or adjusted higher like a standard bike.

Keep the seat low so your passenger can snuggle up close or raise the seat up to get proper leg extension while pedaling. You do you.

Key Features:

Single-Speed Drivetrain:

The simplified drivetrain makes for easy riding and low maintenance. Ideal for new riders or those just looking to cruise.

LED Control Panel:

A simplified LED control panel means one click on and one click off, with additional buttons for lights and pedal assistance, and LEDs to indicate battery and assist levels.

Integrated Rear Rack:

Attach panniers, platforms, or baskets and let the bike carry your cargo. Or mount a Yepp Maxi child seat and bring your kids along for the ride.

Low-Step Frame Design:

Featuring a 16.5" stand over height, this ebike is perfect for those needing a more approachable package without sacrificing features or functionality.

Rigid Front Fork:

Stable and responsive, the rigid fork provides ultimate control when cruising around town.

Upright Handlebars:

High rise aluminum handlebars allow adjustment to support various arm lengths and a more laid back riding position.

Dual Leg Kickstand:

Increased stability when loading cargo or when passengers jump on the rear.

750W Bafang Geared Hub Motor:

80 Nm of torque to conquer hills and power through loose terrain like never before.

Twist Grip Throttle:

750W of power on-demand and the included on/off button allows you to only use the throttle when you want to.

Puncture-Resistant Tires:

Made from a layer of aramid and ceramic particles inside the tire under the tread, the Kenda K-Shield integrated tire liner is a line of defense designed to provide extra protection against punctures from thorns, glass, and other small materials.

Integrated Brake Light:

Powered using the main battery pack and features brake light functionality that is activated any time the brakes are applied.

Reflective Sidewall Striping:

Extremely durable and have a larger total reflective surface and better visibility than traditional spoke mounted reflectors.

Designed to be customized:

A total of 330 accessory combinations means your RadRunner can be uniquely yours. Compatible with our full suite of racks and platforms, and introducing our patent-pending Passenger Package and Center Console, you can accessorize to your heart's content to truly expand the bike's functionality.
