The Commuter's Dream

Our iconic commuter bike is back in its Raddest version yet. New for this year, the RadCity 4 comes in a single, 18.5” frame size to fit a wider variety of riders. Its updated, swept-back handlebars are designed to keep you comfortable on longer rides, and it has mounts on its frame for an optional wheel lock.

The RadCity 4 lets you get across town like never before. You'll power over hills with ease, and you'll do it in style and comfort with a stock rear rack, fenders, and front suspension.

The Rad Battery Pack

With over a decade of designing and building ebikes under our belts, we know that a high-capacity battery like this isn’t something you cheap out on. We designed and built our batteries using genuine Samsung 35E cells, which are some of the most energy-dense and reliable lithium-ion cells on the market today. These cells have allowed us to build an overall better battery, and at only 7.7 lb, it's one of the lightest and most energy-dense packs on any electric bike.

Reliable, Smooth, Maintenance-Free Hub Motor

Using a brushless direct drive hub motor allows regenerative braking to be enabled as a standard feature. This allows the user to slow down when traveling downhill or coming to a stop while charging the battery in the process. Regenerative braking is automatically activated anytime you engage the brake levers, meaning you can take advantage of this amazing feature without having to do anything extra.

25mph

It's possible to boost your max speed to 25mph. You press and hold both the up and down buttons at the same time to bring up the settings menu. There are You Tube videos that show you how to do it.

Brilliant

Brilliant! I love my Radcity. It's really well built. 1 just turned 1500 miles and, after a brake adjustment, it still runs like new. While they were adjusting the brakes I was checking out the E-bikes. When I asked about one of the bikes the salesman said, "That thing is a piece crap compared to your bike." You gotta love it!!

Didn't use it yet.

I'm sorry, but it is still in the box. I didn't have time to unbox it before leaving for Arizona where we spend our winters. I look forward to using it when I return in May.

Test Ride.

Wish we were able to test ride the bikes before we bought them. Might have chosen a different model. Bought 2 Rad City. Might have ordered the step thru. Still might if I could get the same price.

Just a couple of minor issues with my Rad City power bike

I giving my review to my RadCity Power Bike, 5 stars! I had a couple of minor issues come up after receiving my bike in record time. 1. A warped front brake disc,( poss. damage from shipping) , Which was replaced by Rad with in the week,
and 2. After 100 miles I had a shop go over everything and a couple of spokes needed tightening and that was all. I'm very happy with the performance of my powerbike.
