Which bike suits your Rad Dad?

Rad Power Bikes Rad Dad blog banner

Father’s Day is a holiday honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds. Why not gift your Rad Dad with a brand new Rad Ride?

Picking the best bike to suit your Father’s needs can be tricky. Whether he’s looking for one to commute, get fit or just explore the countryside, an ebike is the optimal tool to do so -- “But which one will suit your Pop?”...

Here’s a gift guide we put together to help him kick off Summer.

The Cargo Dad

Rad Dad RadWagon 4 Electric Cargo Bike

The RadWagon has been favored as the “SUV of ebikes”. Capable of hauling a payload capacity of 158kg, the RadWagon 4 is the most versatile version of the RadWagon yet. 

The integrated rear rack means Dad can attach panniers bags, platforms or baskets to carry groceries, tools, hardware, sports equipment, you name it! Or mount a Yepp Maxi child seat, caboose or deckhand to bring the kids along for a ride.

The lower center of gravity means it's easier to ride, easier to hop on and off, and more comfortable for your kids to climb aboard.

The Utility Dad

Rad Utlity Dad Riding a RadRunner Plus Electric Bike

With a total of 330 accessory combinations, the RadRunner or RadRunner Plus can be outfitted to suit your Dad! The integrated rear rack offers him the option to mount a child seat, passenger pack, basket, cargo bag, and more!

Maybe he’s the kind of dad that would appreciate the patent-pending Center Console to store his drinks when heading on a solo ride through town.

Or maybe dad likes the fact that the RadRunner (and RadRunner Plus) is the very first ebike to have an adjustable driver's seat that can be completely flush with the passenger's seat. So he can keep the seat low so his partner can ride at the back and snuggle up close, bearing in-mind that the total payload capacity of the RadRunner and RadRunner Plus is 136kg.

The Go Anywhere, Do Anything Dad

Thijs and Floyd on the RadRhino

One of the most popular bikes from our lineup. The fat tire capabilities of the RadRhino and RadRhino Step-Thru means the rider can go from urban streets to rough terrain without compromising on comfort or capability.

If you have a Dad who is game for adventure, likes to skip the bike path, and look like a total “badass” while doing so, then this is the ebike for him! Awarded The Best Electric Fat Bike of 2020 by EBR, The RadRhino and RadRhino Step-Thru are inexpensive without compromising on quality.

The Outdoorsy Dad


Does your dad enjoy camping, fishing and other outdoor excursions? Recently awarded “Beste Koop” electric folding bike by Fietstest.nl, the RadMini 4 could be exactly what your dad is looking for!


This rugged space saver packs quite the punch. Strong construction, high battery life, 7 speed gear range and puncture resistant tires -- what more could you want?


The RadMini 4 can be stored just about anywhere. Fold it up and place it in the camper or boot of the car. Mount a pannier bag to the rear rack, or small basket to a front rack, and you’re ready to set off on adventure.
