Rad Power Bikes releases 2018 lineup, led by new RadCity Step-Thru model

Published December 21, 2017

SEATTLE (BRAIN) — Rad Power Bikes, a Seattle-based consumer-direct e-bike company, has announced its 2018 bike lineup, which includes its new RadCity Step-Thru model.

The new model is similar to the company's RadCity Electric Commuter but uses a new frame featuring a 20-inch step-through height and sweptback handlebars, which the company said addresses the comfort needs of many of its customers. It retails for $1,499.

Models in the 2018 lineup are updated with improved battery life; frame and handlebar redesigns; accessory compatibility including universal front rack mounts; new colors; and brighter headlights. 

All 2018 models feature a partially integrated downtube for a more streamlined fit with the battery and a lower center of gravity.

Prices are unchanged from 2017. All bikes are available now for pre-order and will be shipped to customers in January.

"Since our start in 2007 we have delivered tens of thousands of e-bikes to our loyal customers, and we're excited to expand on the features and the construction quality that has made each model so popular. We've received a ton of positive customer feedback, and we have also garnered tremendous input for future enhancements," said Mike Radenbaugh, the CEO of Rad Power Bikes. "We've analyzed that feedback and used it as critical input to our 2018 model year refresh. We remain totally committed to our customers and our planet with highly sustainable electric bikes that are reliable, affordable and built to withstand just about anything."
