Rad Power unveils new e-cargo bike

Rad Power Bikes has unveiled the latest iteration of its RadWagon e-cargo bike.

The RadWagon 4 is said to offer enhanced strength stability and versatility, “setting a new standard” for what can be expected in an e-cargo bike.

The new build went through a comprehensive redesign with the idea of lowering the overall centre of gravity and providing a more sturdy, stable ride. The 22 x 3-inch tyres were designed in-house by Rad Power Bikes’ team of product engineers and constructed specifically for cargo hauling.

“We went back to the drawing board and looked at all the ways we could improve our beloved electric cargo bike, keeping our customers’ feedback and requests at the forefront of our minds the entire time,” said Mike Radenbaugh, Rad Power Bikes’ founder and CEO.

“The result is a next-level people and cargo hauler that’s essentially a brand new cargo bike. With a patent-pending frame design, custom tires, and more adjustability than ever before, the RadWagon 4 is the raddest car replacing bike we’ve ever created.”

The RadWagon features a new frame, and the standover height and rear deck are lower than previous versions. It comes with a geared hub motor, reportedly providing twice the torque compared to the direct-drive motor used in previous models. A telescoping seatpost and adjustable handlebars fit a wider range of riders and, with a refreshed lineup of accessories and new mounting points, it’s easy to switch between child seats, cargo baskets and more, according to Rad.

Pre-orders can be placed online with an expected ship date of September 2020.
