What is L1e-A?

A RAD NEW CLASS OF ELECTRIC BIKES

A RAD NEW CLASS OF ELECTRIC BIKES

The L1e-A electric bike category makes it possible for Rad Power Bikes to build electric bikes for European customers that have all the benefits of a regular ebike but with much more power. L1e-A “powered cycles” are defined as cycles designed to pedal, equipped with an auxiliary propulsion with the primary aim to aid pedaling. The propulsion should be limited at a speed of 25 km/h and its maximum continuous rated power should not exceed 1,000W. L1e-A includes two-, three- and four-wheel vehicles.

L1e-A in many countries means that the bike needs to be registered and insured (please check your local laws and regulations for your specific situation). This gives you the peace of mind that your bike is registered and therefore can be traced in the unlikely case your bike is lost or stolen. European authorities have carefully studied the requirements necessary for you to safely and securely ride your ebike. Only those bikes that fully comply with the L1e-A regulation are offered a European type approval. The RadWagon have been given this approval so you can be confident that your ebike from Rad Power Bikes is of the highest quality.
