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.
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.

What to Measure
Your “real inseam” -- or inside leg length -- is the distance between your body where it sits on your bike saddle and the ground.
This will typically be an inch or two longer than the length of your trousers, but you’ll want to measure to be sure.
You’ll use this number on the chart to get a feel for how the different models will fit you.
How to Measure
Gather the tools needed:
- Medium-width hardcover book
- Tape measure
- A wall you can stand against
- A trusted friend or relative
Wearing your regular riding shoes and with your back to the wall, stand with your feet spread so there is about 7 inches between them - this is about the distance apart your feet would be when straddling a bike with your feet on the ground (standover height).
Place a hardcover book against the wall with the spine of the book facing upward. Slide the book upwards towards your groin until it is solidly against your body. This may be a bit awkward, but is way more comfortable -- and safer! -- than trying to ride a bike that is too big.
If you have a buddy helping you, get them to measure from the floor to the top of the book spine while you hold the book in place. If you’re going it alone, carefully hold the book in place and measure from the ground to the top of the book spine.
A fuel gauge for your electrons.
Pedal Assist Level
The higher the number, the more the motor will boost you when you pedal.
5V, 1 Amp port to charge your phone or portable electronics on the go.
Calculate how many miles you didn't drive this year and how much money you saved on gas.
Can be set to current speed, max speed, or average speed.
Shows how much power the motor is outputting at any given time.
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.

"It is no small wonder there are so many of these running around for both commuters and companies alike."
Looking for something more accessible?
The RadCity Step-Thru 3 is a great option if you want many of the same features as the RadCity but with a much lower stand over height.
What a blast! The quality is top notch and the design is retro without being too nostalgic. The mechanics are well thought out and initiative. The online support and presents is 5-star. As a neophyte I was impressed by the step by step assembly videos to maintenance schedules. Literally from nuts to bolts. I feel secure with my support, from both online and customer support (which I haven’t had to use yet because of your excellent online presence). Choosing RAD was definitely the best fit for me. Thank you!
Bought two RadCitys for two of my sons. I am a proud owner of the RadWagon and wanted to share the experience with them. Being a repeat customer should speak to how I feel about the bikes and the company.
These bikes have changed my life for the better. My weekly commute of about 140 miles was done in a SUV. Now it is done on a Rad.
Customer service is outstanding.
I don’t know a lot about the electric bicycle market, but I am happy to have chosen to lean into it with multiple purchases from Rad.
I am really enjoying my RadCity. Errands that used to require my car now have me on my bike. I love the pedal assist being so flexible. This bike is a great value.
Received the bike a month ago. Easy assembly and the controls and display are extremely rider friendly.
Great quality and a blast to ride. So many friends and neighbors are interested in a Rad as well. Communication from the company was excellent during the purchase and buying process too. There are also several You Tube clips about additional bike features and regular maintenance information. I'm five star happy I purchased a Rad !
Top Shelf! The quality and engineering of this E-bike is way beyond the pricing for this unit! I'am 69 years old now and have had a few new bicycles in that time period. I've always had a passion for two wheelers, but being older now limits my ability to go physically long periods. How ever with this E-bike, my horizons and time in the saddle have been extended. This unit brings back the endurance and joy of freedom one experiences when first exposed to multi-speed bicycles. I cannot say enough of the pure joy I get when riding this Rad-City 4! I'am hoping the electronics and mechanicals, (short of normal ware) will last into the future and be defect free, but only time can determine how long? So far, I'am impressed to the point of considering another E-bike for the Misses and hoping she'll decide "yes"! Anyway, you've got yourself a winner in my eyes, stay the course, keep exploring ideas, stay strong, stay safe, and God Bless! "Let's Roll", Robert VM
I had one of the first iterations of an electric bicycle, and the improvements that exist in Rad bicycles is awesome. The RadCity is very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. I have suddenly become an avid bicyclist and am out every day enjoying the sophistication of the RadCity. It is well built, solid, and very affordable. I see no reason to purchase more expensive bikes. The RadCity has it all. Love it. Thanks RAD
I do like my Rad City 4 bike. A solid built bike. Only two comments I would suggest for Rad City. First is the seat. You should offer a beach style seat with the springs under the seat for a smoother ride or a least offer one on your accessories list. I had to buy an after market seat. Also I was wanting to get a small basket for the back of my Rad City 4. I can see you are sold out and when I talked with your sales dept. they didn't know when you would be getting any in. So I will wait and keep checking. But I do like my Rad City 4. Thanks!
I recently purchased a RadCity Electric Commuter Bike Version 4 and I am very happy with it. My wife had the RadCity Step Through and she loved it. I had a different bike that was not nearly as nice as hers so I sold it and bought the RadCity bike. I couldn’t be happier! I definitely made the right decision.
Love the new RADCity. Battery just keeps going. It’s rock solid and very comfortable to ride. Went together easily. Torque wrench would be nice to have. I had to adjust the derailor A little But other than that perfect. Breaks are great. FYI, it’s a big bike. If you have less than 30inch inseam look at other models.
