The single most important component on any ebike is its battery. If you can’t trust the juice flowing through its veins, your ebike is better off sitting in the garage than taking you on your next adventure. With over a decade of
designing and building ebikes under our belts, we've seen firsthand the downfalls of using low-quality cells. And trust us, it ain't pretty.
A high-capacity battery like this isn’t something you cheap out on. We
designed and built our batteries using genuine Samsung 35E cells, which are some of the most energy-dense and reliable lithium-ion cells on the market today. These cells have allowed us to build an overall better battery,
and at only 3.5 kg, it's one of the lightest and most energy-dense packs on any electric bike.

Since the beginning, we've been huge fans of hub motors for their performance, ease of use, and versatility. The 500W Shengyi Direct Drive Hub Motor is the perfect companion for the RadCity Step-Thru and makes this
bike the ideal choice for urban environments.
Using a brushless direct drive hub motor allows the RadCity Step-Thru to have regenerative braking enabled as a standard feature. This allows the user to slow down when
traveling downhill or coming to a stop while charging the battery in the process. Regenerative braking is automatically activated anytime you engage the brake levers, meaning you can take advantage of this amazing feature without having to
do anything extra.
"People who might have known about ebikes but struggled to find one that was approachable and well balanced now have a great option."
