RADCITY STEP-THRU KEY FEATURES

We know that the term "cozy" isn't usually associated with bicycles, but the low-step frame and swept-back bars make the RadCity Step-Thru a truly cozy bike to ride. Add to that the affordability, power, and features, this is the best electric comfort cruiser on the market.

500W Shengyi Direct Drive Hub Motor

The direct drive hub motor provides smooth acceleration and features regenerative braking to help recharge the battery any time you engage the brake levers.

NEW IN 2019: Kenda K-Shield Puncture Resistant Tires

Made from a layer of aramid and ceramic particles inside the tire under the tread, the Kenda K-Shield integrated tire liner is a line of defense designed to provide extra protection against punctures from thorns, glass, and other small materials.

48V 14Ah Lithium-Ion Battery with Samsung 35E Cells

Our 48V 14Ah (672Wh) batteries give you an estimated 40-72+ km per charge while maintaining a sleek profile.

Low-Step Frame Design

Mount and dismount the RadCity Step-Thru with ease. Featuring a 508mm stand over height, this bike is perfect for those needing a more approachable package without sacrificing features or functionality.

Twist Grip Throttle

Get 500W of power on-demand with the twist grip throttle. The included on/off button helps prevent accidental activation and allows you to only use the throttle when you want to.

Integrated Rear Rack

Take the weight off of your back and have the RadCity Step-Thru carry it for you. Attach panniers, platforms, or baskets and let the RadCity carry your cargo, or mount a Yepp Maxi child seat and bring your child along for the ride!

NEW IN 2019: Reflective Sidewall Striping

The new reflective tire sidewall striping removes the need for the orange wheel reflectors attached to the spokes like on our previous model generations. These reflective sidewalls are more durable and have a larger total reflective surface for increased visibility during night time rides. They look pretty sweet too, but that's not really a "feature."

180mm Mechanical Disc Brakes

Front and rear 180mm Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes provide you with strong stopping power, even in loose terrain. Stop faster when it counts the most.

NEW IN 2019: 7-Speed, 11-34 Tooth Freewheel

Giving you a wider range of gearing at your disposal, the 7-speed, 11-34T freewheel means you can shift into the lowest gear for those treacherous uphill climbs or shift into the highest gear and still maintain pedal authority at top speed.

NEW IN 2019: Integrated Brake Light

The integrated tail light is powered using the main battery pack and also features brake light functionality that is activated any time the brakes are applied. The new tail light will turn on along with the headlight for increased night time visibility and still maintains the brake light functionality. It also keeps the strobe feature, which can be toggled using the button located on the tail light.

PERFORMANCE

48V and 14Ah of Pure, Clean Power

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 and 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.
