How To Choose the Right Ebike for You

The perfect ride is out there. We'll help you find it.

We don't want you to ride just any ol' ebike. We want you to ride the ebike that’s right for you.

 

Here at Rad Power Bikes, we make electric bikes for every kind of lifestyle, from on-the-go college kids and urban dwellers to those who may have been sidelined from cycling years ago but are ready to give it another go.


It’s great to have choices, but we get that it can be a little daunting. Luckily, we have a plethora of ways to help guide your decisions and get you up and riding Rad quickly and easily.


Here are five ways we can help choose the best ebike for your specific needs:

 

1. Have a word with our new Radbot. 

 

Our new customer support tool will fetch you the information you need.

   

We created a Facebook Messenger chatbot that can help you zero in on your choice.

 

Don’t trust machines? Don’t worry, the chatbot asks the very same questions that our retail and customer experience staff present to every one of our would-be riders.

 

Plus, it’s a fun way to pass the time when you’re daydreaming about ebikes and waiting for your flight or stuck late at the office. 

 

2. Look no further than these prices.

Impressed by our prices? Rad Power Bikes eliminates the overhead by selling our bike directly to our customers. 

 

Rad Power Bikes is a consumer-direct business. That means there’s no middle-man, which in turn means there’s no mark-up.

 

Long story short, that boils down to a lower price tag for you, at no compromise to quality or support.

 

Not only that, but we offer free shipping to the lower 48 states and financing options, making us accessible under almost any budget.

  

3. Check out these reviews.

 

 
When you’re part of the Rad community, you’ll never need to ride alone. Our in-house team of experts is always creating new videos and articles to help answer any question that might pop up along the way.

 

We think we’re pretty Rad, but you don’t have to take it from us. Hundreds of customers feel the same way. It’s worth discovering which ebikes have worked best for them and why.

4. Treat yourself to a test ride!

 

 
Rad Power Bikes gives about 500 test rides each week at our U.S. retail location alone. No matter how nervous or skeptical someone may be when they first climb onto one of our bikes, they’re almost always grinning from ear-to-ear when they roll back into our driveway.

 

Everything on this list can help you nail down the right bike for you, but actually feeling one under your own two feet is the most eye-opening.


We offer free test rides every day of the week at our showrooms in Seattle, Vancouver, B.C., and Utrecht, Netherlands, but if you’re unable to come to us, you can still try before you buy at over 100 rental locations across the world. Just look for the location nearest you!

  

5. Zero in on the right model with our quick guide.

 

  
We have ebikes designed for every style of rider. Our quick guide breaks it all down. 

 

Once you get your hands on one of our electric bikes, we're pretty confident you'll be spending a lot of time on it. 

 

After all, your bike will help you conquer hills, ride longer, and go farther than you may have thought possible -- regardless of which ebike you choose. 

 

But we also know that every would-be rider has their own vision of a perfect bike, whether it's one they use to explore the rugged outdoors or one that will help them zip along city streets.

 

To make sure you're getting the most out of your bike, here's a quick guide to help match the right model with your lifestyle.
