LEVA-EU member Rad Power Bikes expands its range with the latest generation of electric folding bikes. This RadExpand 5 is lighter, has bigger all-terrain tires, handles better, comes with a heavy-duty rear rack preinstalled, and is available in a black (and white) frame.
After the resounding success of previous models, Rad Power Bikes took on the feedback received from many of the 400,000 riders in the community to create a new edition to meet new desires. From here the RadExpand range was born.
The RadExpand 5 is a natural go-getter with all the benefits of a regular folding bike. “It’s a lot of little things,” says Rad Power Bikes Chief Product Officer Redwood Stephens, “that add up to a big difference.” The main change launching this e-bike off-road and onward to adventure is the tire width – the RadExpand’s tires are now four inches wide, a true “fat tire” e-bike for tackling all terrain. It offers improved ergonomics for a wider range of riders, courtesy of adjustable high-rise handlebars that can be moved in or back. And, should a rider want to load up with cargo – the bike’s high quality and heavy-duty included rear rack will allow so.
The new step-through frame allows for riders of heights 147cm to 178cm and is the ideal frame for those with limited mobility. Additionally, the bike’s weight has been reduced by 2.3kg, motor cable adjustments have been made for easier maintenance, and a new ergonomic saddle with a built-in handle makes for easier riding and transportation.
The RadExpand “provides incredible value,” emphasizes Redwood. “The value for what you get is off the charts – you have a 250-watt powertrain coupled with a 672-watt-hour battery that takes you up to 70+ kilometers per charge, and Rad-engineered details you expect.” Such details include waterproof connectors, electrically integrated lights, and puncture-resistant tires.
