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.

Happy in St. Louis

Purchased the RadRunner to help me navigate the city better and to ride rough trails in the country. Bike performs very well on both tasks. It's well built, has enough power, and is fun to ride!

Lots of fun

It's awesome. I can't wait for summer so I can ride it every day.

I feel that's it's marvelous. I have been riding almost every day and it's great to get outside and moving. Page 81 of the RadRunner manual suggests leaving the seat lower so that both feet are on the ground depending on ability. That certainly works for me as I get more practice.

My Dream Bike !

My RadRunner is a riot ! It is so fun, and is actually excellent to use as a high intensity interval training tool ! I am 60, and the assist is awesome when it comes to those killer hills I used to dread on my regular mountain bike. I do believe this thing could climb Mt. Kilimanjaro ! It is a little workhorse, and I am so glad I discovered Rad Power Bikes ! Thank You !

Rad Runner

I like everything about the bike except I want more power. 1500 Watts for these hills in the San Francisco Bay area is needed.

Saving Time and Money

We bought two RadRunners after
our second car died. We live within 2 miles of almost everything we need to do on a daily basis. Swapping the extra car saved us an extra insurance payment and tag fees every year as well as depreciation, gas, wear and tear etc. I get compliments daily on my bike as I ride to work and everyone at the office digs it.

Better than expected

I ended up buying two bikes after finding out the first one did not allow a back seat. The derailer on one doesn’t work and needs to be adjusted but we love having them to cruise around Lake Tahoe!
