When we told our riders that we'd be releasing an all-new version of our flagship electric cargo bike, we knew they were going to be pumped.
After all, there are plenty of upgrades to be excited about, whether it's the lower center of gravity for more stable rides, a geared hub motor for easier uphill hauling, or a patented new frame that makes it easier to load up the kids or strap on some cargo.
But our riders aren't the only ones who realize just how cool this ebike will be. Since we unveiled the release date, the RadWagon 4 has been getting attention from all over the web.
Take a look at what some of the websites that know electric bikes best are saying about our next-level hauler.
