Why Fat Tyres?

The fat tyres are very fun as they can tackle terrain that traditional tyres cannot. You receive a lot of grip, stability and comfort. The RadRhino, for instance, can ride on surfaces where normal bicycles fall short, such as loose sand and snow. If you are able to, give it a test ride. You won’t be disappointed!

What is pedal assist?

Pedal-assist uses a cadence sensor built into the drivetrain of the ebike which reads when you are pedaling and automatically turns the electric motor on to assist when you are pedaling. Start pedaling and the sensor tells the motor to turn on. You can adjust the level of assistance with the LCD screen from 1 (lowest amount of assistance) to 5 (highest amount of assistance) to match your desired speed. Since you are pedaling, using the bike in pedal-assist mode will generally result in a longer range compared to throttle only mode. For more information have a read here.

Can I ride without power?

The great thing about our ebikes is that they can be pedaled just like a traditional bike. By turning off the bike or switching the pedal assist level to 0, a rider can pedal and ride the bike, and can even shift gears when desired.

 

Pedaling an ebike without motor assistance may require a bit more effort to start than a traditional bike because an ebike weighs slightly more. However, that means your bike is equipped with a robust and powerful motor and a battery pack capable of propelling you forward whenever you choose!

Can I change the speed of my ebike?

All our bikes have a top speed of 25 km/h. Our ebike models have been specially designed to abide by European laws. If the motor or controller is modified, you could be breaking the law in the country that you live and you will lose any warranty claims from Rad Power Bikes.

How do I return a bike?

Please follow the guidlines to issue a return here.

Do Rad Power Bikes have gears?

All of our bikes, except for the RadRunner, use a Shimano 7-speed gearing system and thumb shifter.

Can I carry things or passengers on my bike?

Yes! Each model is designed with carrying cargo in mind. To find information related to your model, check out the Geometry & Sizing specs on the product page.

Do you have sales or offer discounts?

Can I change the orientation of my bike levers?

Making any modifications on your bike could lead to our team not being able to assist you with troubleshoot problems and forfeiting your warranty terms.

Why can't I order from the US site?

For us to be able to sell the bikes legally in Europe, we manufacture our bikes to follow local laws and legislation. Therefore you are not able to make any purchases from our American or Canadian site and have it delivered in Europe.

 

Any attempts to transport a US model into Europe could lead to your bike being illegal in a European country. We take no responsibility and will not be able to offer any support with warranty or technical issues as software and hardware parts differ.
