Technical Overview Video

Proprietary 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.

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 lbs, it's one of the lightest and most energy-dense packs on any electric bike.

With 750W and 80 Nm of torque at your disposal, this Bafang geared hub motor is what is going to help power you up steep inclines and get you up to top speed quickly from a dead stop, all while remaining quiet and inconspicuous. These kinds of numbers aren't even found on some of the most expensive mid drive systems out there, so prepare to outperform and outclass everyone you see on the road.

Radrunner experiences

I mentioned earlier my wife also go a mini and she is working on her confidence, as for me, I was a little intimidated at first as well, but I soon became very comfortable with the machine, from an engineering back ground I have been very impressed with the quality of all the components

Newbie Rad owner X 2

Bought two RadRunners for myself and my wife for Valentines. Installed all the bells and whistle goodies one might need and we enjoyed riding them this past weekend in Paso Robles Ca. The area has lots of rolling hills but the bikes had plenty of power. We look forward to many more trips.

Way Fun!

This is actually a second review - but riding is Way Fun and I can go farther for longer. Pedal assist is the best!

Sweet Ride!

I bought 2 RadRunners for my wife and I. They are a pleasure to ride. And the 750W motor delivers plenty of power. Last week we went up a 12% grade trail using just the throttle with ease, The only thing we needed to do when we got the bikes was buy better seats, the OEMs are a little hard. But we absolutely love these bikes!

Excellent well thought out design and quality

I don't typically buy much of anything retail, bought a RAD step through for my wife as she has a foot condition that makes it difficult to power walk with me anymore. This bike has allowed us to continue to get out and exercise together. From the packaging to the pedals to the electronics and lights to the manual, every little detail has been well thought out, planned, and executed to construct this bicycle. Plus it's soooo fun to ride! A lot of bike and quality for the money!

Excellent bike for the price

Most of my high school years were spent riding a BMX bike and this bike has brought back so many memories of riding through my neighborhood as a child. The quality of welds, the durability of the fame, and the overall concept of the bike are so well produced. The bike even has working brake lights! I have enjoyed the bike so much I recently recommended a friend to buy one and they also love their new bike.

Like it

Thanks all well, I'm using it more and more. I like it. I just need to be careful with other traffic etc. etc. I just bought a lock for it too, so I can take more places.

Thx

Having lots of fun!

I was a little skeptical of myself before I bought the bike. Since owning it for a little over a month, I look forward to riding it every day, even in the winter cold and rain. I'm looking at buying some more accessories, soon. The staff at RAD are excellent, treated me really well, and gave really excellent advice. This has been the most satisfied I've been with a major purchase in years. Folks in the office are very interested. When the weather improves we will likely have some trials in the parking lot. The bike attracts a lot of attention.
