Key Features

If the term "car replacement" can be applied to anything, the RadWagon would be it. The RadWagon is the most affordable, feature-rich, and powerful electric cargo bike on the market and it's got everything you need to get the job done, and then some.

750W Shengyi Direct Drive Hub Motor

The direct drive hub motor provides smooth acceleration and features regenerative braking to help recharge the battery any time you engage the brake levers.

Kenda K-Shield Puncture Resistant Tires

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.

48V 14Ah Lithium-Ion Battery with Samsung 35E Cells

Our 48V 14Ah (672Wh) batteries give you an estimated 25-45+ miles per charge while maintaining a sleek profile.

Integrated Brake Light

The integrated tail light is powered using the main battery pack and also features brake light functionality that is activated any time the brakes are applied. The new tail light will turn on along with the headlight for increased night time visibility and still maintains the brake light functionality. It also keeps the strobe feature, which can be toggled using the button located on the tail light.

Twist Grip Throttle

Get 750W of power on-demand with the twist grip throttle. The included on/off button helps prevent accidental activation and allows you to only use the throttle when you want to.

Integrated Rear Rack

Take the weight off of your back and have the RadWagon carry it for you. Attach panniers, platforms, or baskets and let the RadWagon carry your cargo. Or mount a Yepp Maxi child seat, Caboose, or Deckhand and bring your kids along for the ride!

Reflective Sidewall Striping

The new reflective tire sidewall striping removes the need for the orange wheel reflectors attached to the spokes like on our previous model generations. These reflective sidewalls are more durable and have a larger total reflective surface for increased visibility during night time rides. They look pretty sweet too, but that's not really a "feature."

180mm Mechanical Disc Brakes

Front and rear 180mm Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes provide you with strong stopping power, even in loose terrain. Stop faster when it counts the most.

7-Speed, 11-34 Tooth Freewheel

Giving you a wider range of gearing at your disposal, the 7-speed, 11-34T freewheel means you can shift into the lowest gear for those treacherous uphill climbs or shift into the highest gear and still maintain pedal authority at top speed.

Performance

48V and 14Ah of Pure, Clean Power

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

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.

Nice bike with issues

This is my second rad bike. I have liked both bikes. However, just like my first one this one seems to have a few issues out the box. With this one, my left crank pedal threads were a bit messed up and sometimes when I start out in low level “1” power mode, it delivers a burst of power and then shuts off. I haven’t gotten around to contacting customer service, but with my last bike the customer service was excellent so I’m not too concerned.

Very happy

Life enhancer at great price - in fact no brainer!

Battery security an issue in NYC. They are easily crowbarred off even when locked. Can you offer a device for additional security?

Great Cargo Bike - Direct vs Indirect Drive Motors

Assembly was easy with the exception of getting the brakes aligned. They were rubbing coming out of the box. They are one-sided brakes (instead of compressing from both sides, only the outside brake pad moves) and thus are harder to align. I wish I had understood before I purchased the Radwagon the difference between direct drive and indirect drive motors. Direct drive motors allow for regenerative charging when braking. But since direct drive motors are always engaged they slow you down on a downhill slope, on an 8% grade I can barely get my Radwagon up to 33 mph, regular bikes can easily hit 40 mph on an 8% grade. Indirect drive motors can not support regenerative braking, but can rotate on a ball bearing that thus allows the motor to disengage. This allows you to go as fast as you want to on a downhill slope. Now that I understand the tradeoffs, I would prefer to go faster on downhill slopes than have regenerative braking.

Love it!

This Rad Wagon is awesome. Well made, arrived quickly, easy to put together and a pleasure to ride. My partner loves riding on the back and from where we live in Salt Lake coming back up the hill from downtown isn’t a problem. Nice work Rad!

Bike is rad and a half

I ordered the RadWagon after shopping around carefully and I'm so impressed with the quality for the price. I put our 4 year old twins on the back of the bike and they love cruising around. The bike is well-built, sturdy, great design, and the power is excellent. Nice work Rad Power Bikes!

Really a great bike and a great value.

I have almost nothing, but positive things to say about my new bike except for 1. With the rear tire hub motor placement it's a substantial challenge to tune the back brake. I took it into the local bike shop to see if they knew any tricks that would help, but they were only able to get it to 85%. The rear brake pad still squeaks against the disc as at rubs on it, but it's not terminal.
I love the bike, just dealing with a cumbersome issue with the brake tuning.
