Rad Power Bikes RadRover Video Review – 750 Watt, Sand Capable, Well Priced

https://electricbikereview.com/rad-power-bikes/radrover/ The 2016/2017 RadRover from Rad Power Bikes strikes an excellent balance delivering high power with mid-level components for a reasonable price, you get throttle and pedal assist with an on/off on the throttle! solid one year warranty for the original owner, flat rate $175 shipping in the US. Even though the battery and controller box are bolted on vs. integrated into the frame, they use extra bolts for strength and kept them mostly out of the way, both are mounted low for improved stability. Nice extras including an integrated LED headlight, stand alone rear light, USB charging outlet on the battery, handle at the back of the seat, quick release front wheel, bash guard on the chainring and derailleur… optional fenders and rack. Only available in one frame size but comes in black or white color choices, the 180 mm disc brakes work well enough but hydraulic would be nice, the grips spin a bit if you squeeze hard, excellent kickstand placement, clean wire integration.

I have owned a RadRover for a year and I love it.

Paul Rhim says:

I noticed that you also had a Rad Mini on that trip. Would love to see another review of that bike. Thanks for all the great videos!

Pat Montreal says:

You do not speak about the holes in the wheel …. the sand and the dust does not seem to penetrate there? Easy to clean ?

choski76 says:

cables under yhe bottom bracket are vulnerable.

Jeremy Jones says:

This is the whitest thing I had ever seen

sten beetlex says:

i do wish they have a gearless simpler version thats cheaper………. i love this but hate the gears which i’m paranoid about getting stuck eventually……….!

xflyingtiger says:

Would it cost a lot more money to produce this bicycle with a torque sensor rather than a cadence sensor? Yes, it seems like 6 magnets versus 12 would make a difference.

Mark Woods says:

I bought the black model last month. I’ve only put about 60 miles on it so far. Longest ride is 15 miles. I plan on going for longer rides in the future. I’d love to be somewhere warm with it. So far I’ve had no problems and it seems like a bargain compared to other bikes of the same style. Great review!

Mainer Man says:

The greatest point is you would never be able to do this on a beach without an e-bike. That is the awesome part! It is a responsibility people need to be aware of. We are able to go place and see things quietly, clean, respectfully. Some if not most will never appreciate without an e-bike

Yousuf A says:

how many miles can it go in one run???

Nymuscle says:

Do you know if there are any differences between this model when you did this video and the 2018 model ? Thanks.

Marcin O says:

Shame you cant buy these here in UK

Gone TROPPO says:

wicked bike , thanks

Dazlidorne Jenkins says:

Can’t wait for your review of the new 2018 Rad Power Bikes!

brudyboy 58 says:

Why only 20 mph? 30 would be much better.

Steven says:

I have a RadRover and put lil over 350 miles on it so far. I do street riding, dirt trails, rock trails. Only problem I have ever had is chain coming off going down hill while in a low gear. Besides that not one problem. I would like to see grip lock outs as well.

Josefwintzent Libot says:

can this be bought in the philippines?

Bayard Taylor says:

Spare battery is 500 dollars ?

Eddie Gelman says:

What beach were you on?

Combustion69 says:

Fatbikes serve no purpose and look gay

Robert Ho says:

I’m research ebikes for a pending purchase. Your reviews have been most useful in almost deciding which e-bike to purchase. Rad power bikes has the most informative dimension pertinent to consumers. Like the stand over height you keep mentioning. Minimum and maximum seat to ground and handle bars to ground. Also horizontal distance from seat to handle bar. Another useful dimension would be min and max dimension seat to peddle.

PonderDuke says:

Put on a gates belt drive and and Rohloff hub and you will have no problem with the the stand in your gears. A real beach cruiser.

Maine Explorer says:

Thanks for the great info. I just ordered a Rad Rover and told them your videos were very helpful.

gbird5000 says:

Will one of these bikes fit on a bus bike rack?

mister-lbp says:

I wanted one but is didn’t know it looked so stupid

jay w says:

I’ve never heard so much horseshit in my life. Purpose frame? more bullshit. Take a $5-750(retail) mountain bike, add $300 in Motor/battery.

wjf213 says:

Would a front hub motor help with riding in soft sand or other soft terrain? Keep up the great work.

VideoNOLA says:

I can definitely see wanting to “embiggen” my ride one day and go electric, but I am a huge rider (350 lbs) so must ask: “Do these ‘fat-tire’ bikes tend to come with beefier max load weight limits??”

Peter Piccolo says:

nice review man i love this fat bike…. i have a low budget but what would you recommend.. im 6 ft 2 weigh close to 240 and am super interested in getting a good ebike with at least front suspension and fat tires or at least 3″ tires… whatt would you recommend as a good electric bike with a throttle and pedal assist and the option to change gears and pedal manually if i wanted to…. thanks in advance, i cant wait to hear some of your recommendations ive been doing research for more than 6 months now… id love to hear what you have to say.. i also like the sondors ebike but cant find anyplace online or local shops that actually sell it… do u know where u can get one of those? im just looking for a fatbike with front suspension and gears i can change if im pedaling uphill or using it with the throttle to reach higher speeds… let me know what you think what the best ebike for me based on the prior. thanks again,

-pete piccolo

Drónos Vili says:

Hey there:-) how long is the battery less with 1 charge?

dphotos says:

Rented this bike at the beach in Southern California yesterday and I had a real fun time. Easy to learn the system and these bikes are 1/2 the price of other E fat tire bikes. I think these are worth buying if you are one that will ride it often.
