The RadRover 5 is the ultimate all-terrain electric bike, featuring 4" wide fat tires, a powerful 750W gear hub motor, and a rugged front suspension fork that makes conquering sand, snow, city streets, and hills a breeze. It seamlessly blends rugged capabilities and exceptional comfort.
In 2020, Rad Power Bikes released this model with an optional step-thru frame, bringing these benefits to a wider range of riders.
The RadRover introduced the comfort and off-road capabilities of a fat tire platform to the e-bike market.
The wider tires allow for the user to run lower air pressures which increases traction and comfort. They also allow for the bike to be ridden on soft surfaces such as sand and loose gravel.
Its counterpart, the RadRover Step-Thru, built on this innovative design by offering the same off-road capabilities and comfort in a more accessible frame. It was the first fat tire step-thru e-bike to enter the mainstream market.
The Radrover 5 and the RadRover Step-Thru are both fun, comfortable, and affordable. They provide an incredible value proposition for users -- especially in an e-bike marketplace that often prices-out would-be riders.
Each model comes partially pre-assembled and only requires a few steps to get on the road. Tools are provided for added convenience.
To ensure that these bikes are ready to roll on day one, each bike comes standard with headlights, fenders, and kickstands.
The bikes feature a user-friendly interface to control the motor. Riders can adjust their level of pedal-assist with the touch of a button or quickly hit 20 mph with the twist of a throttle.
The rack mounts on the head tube and seat stay allow for expanded carrying capacity, making them ideal options for mixed-terrain commutes or trips to the grocery store.
The lower standover height on the Step-Thru model expands usability to a wider range of people.
The RadRover 5 continues to be the top selling fat tire e-bike in North America. As an attention-getting platform, it's a word-of-mouth hit that has inspired thousands of people to try their first e-bike.
