The future of short-range transportation is here. The RadRunner 1 offers plenty of utility with a simple yet effective approach to electric bikes.
Whether it’s a run to the grocery store, the morning commute to work, getting to a yoga session with a duffel bag and mat, or a trip to the park with your picnic set, the Radrunner 1 from Rad Power Bikes offers a lot of utility for the money. The Radrunner 1 electric bike is, in a word, versatile. You may find it to be a capable alternative for trips in the car.
Think of this bike as a sort of a decathlete of the e-bike world. Sure, there are better sprinters or better distance runners or better individual specialists at any one of the ten different track-and-field events in a decathlon. Still, not many athletes can run long and short races equally well, leaping high and long jumps, toss javelins and discusses, and do it all the better than the competition. Similarly, there aren’t many e-bike competitors that are well-rounded and capable of so many things as the Radrunner.
Designed with an enticing blend of ultra simplicity along with a wide-ranging sense of adaptability to different purposes, the Radrunner is a highly functional utility e-bike. The basic model can accommodate any one of 330 accessory combinations to add flair and function to every ride. Slap on a rack, a pair of panniers, a passenger seat, even a child seat or delivery bag and make your trip more functional and fun!
The smoothly powerful 750-watt electric motor draws gently on a 45-volt battery to provide an estimated 25-45 mile range per charge. A full recharge from empty will take about six hours, so it’s best to plan to power up at night or while parked at work, perhaps.
At 65 pounds, the Radrunner is solidly built of thick aluminum tubing to support a total weight rating of 300 pounds. You can rely on this bike for hauling and a sturdy (if a bit stiff, because it’s suspensionless) ride in any conditions.
The single-speed drivetrain is a key part of keeping things simple, mechanically, on the Radrunner. With four levels of power thrust to supplement pedaling, the lack of gears won’t be a problem unless you find yourself miles from home without a charge. In the unlikely event you’re out without power, then you will be pedaling a single-speed 65-pound piece of metal on wide tires — not an impossible task, but it could be challenging.
A specially built set of medium-wide tires supports a smooth and (mostly) cushioned ride for the suspensionless system. Kenda Tires created the custom rubber for the Radrunner, with 20” wheels fitted with medium-wide tires for a smooth ride.
Built to sit upright and ride moped style, the bars rise 10 inches from the stem, straight and upright. The seat stem easily adjusts with a quick-release lever to put you at the right height. Unique to the Radrunner is a rear passenger seat that can be aligned with the rider saddle for those willing to drop the saddle down to its lowest setting.
A few things are missing from the ultra-simplified status display unit here. No mileage readout, no GPS, no display screen at all — none of the modern conveniences are to be found on this display unit. LED lights indicate the four steps of power assist, the battery charge level, and the headlight and taillight status, and that’s all RadPower decided you need to know with this model.
In one sense, there aren’t really ‘extra features’ on the base model Radrunner 1, and that’s clearly by choice. It’s got all the necessities in a sturdy, well-designed package at a very reasonable price. Niceties are available at additional prices, like front and back fenders, modified racks or delivery bags, or even the center-mount container option to carry stuff.
In another sense, though, the Radrunner has all the extras it needs: front and rear lights, a brake light that activates with the mechanical disc brakes, comfort grip handles with a throttle control for power boost, and one of the strongest rear racks in the business with 120-pound capacity all are standard.
A single speed with no shifting and a comfortable step-over frame design makes riding the Radrunner about as smooth and easy as zipping around on a moped. Pedal with a power boost option to get you going, smooth and easy.
Radrunner can easily go up to 20 miles per hour with little effort and with plenty of extra strength to haul quite a bit of stuff (up to 300 pounds total weight rating). Radrunner has the power boost to handle hills, even with a full load of cargo.
There are more accessory combinations than most people could use in a lifetime. Add or remove as needed among the 330 combinations of accessories available to get the features you need.
At $1,199 for a base model before the addition of any accessories, the Radrunner is an excellent intro to e-biking, and that’s the plan.
The Radrunner is the latest offering from the Rad Bike Company, with a well-deserved reputation for quality and consistency of build across all their model lines over the years.
While it’s to be expected from an e-bike that’s designed for sturdy hauling power, still, the thick frame bars, wide tires, and 750-watt electric boost motor add up to 65 pounds, making the Radrunner a solid beast if you need to lift it, for example.
With an estimated range of 25 – 45 miles per full charge, the Radrunner has plenty of zoom to get you around town without a worry about running low on juice. There are bikes with more range, and there are some with less, so it’s solidly in the middle of the e-bike range on a charge.
There’s no fancy LCD display with all the tech bells and whistles, just practical LED lights to alert you to critical variables. There are no gears to go through when the going gets tough, but there’s a smooth abundance of power on demand. Available accessories can customize a lot of the simplicity away if that’s your thing.
Radrunner may not win bike beauty contests, but she performs like a champ, and that adds a lot of cool points.
The Radrunner is a knockout value. Just over a thousand bucks gets a box delivered to your door with your new ride ready for some simple setup. It’s total weight rating is 300 pounds and achieves a nice smooth 20 miles per hour with pedal and power boost combined. The Radrunner provides 750 watts of smooth power assist over four-level settings and offers easy riding in the city or even light off-road environments. Considering all of its selling points, the RadRunner is an excellent value for a commuter or light transport vehicle around town.
The future of short-range transportation is here, and without a doubt, there's an electric utility bike that suits your need.
