Rad Power Bike Review

Rad Power Bikes for Hunting

Electric bikes are all the buzz in the outdoor industry. Just walking out of the Pacific Northwest Sportsman show, with my Rad power bike in tow. I couldn’t walk more that an aisle without someone stopping me and asking me about the Rad power bike. The number one question I would get is “How Much?” and each time I would respond with $1,500.00-I got a surprised response. “That’s it?” I figured it would be more. Not with these bad boys. You get all of the positives that come with a bike such as the Rambo fat tire bike. Without the heavy price tag. Here are some of the reasons beyond a great price point, that I love my Rad Power Bike.

These bikes are built to be used. And used hard. The frame is made of lightweight 6061 aluminum. Matched with a big bouncy Kenda Fatbike tires and a heavy duty front suspension. It can handle any of the rough logging roads you’ll face in the backcountry. We all know that these logging roads can have some serious downhill grades to them. Which is why I love having the front and rear Tektro brakes to provide good stopping power in mud and rock.

Electric Hunting Bike

Battery Powered

The specialty is battery and electric motor technology and Rad understand’s you want to commute to and from work, climb hills, stand-your-own in traffic and get to your destination faster. They have what you want and it’s 48 volts and 750 watts of clean power.

48 volts and 750 watts of power results in an electric fat bike capable of tackling terrain and going the distance unlike the lower power and voltage options on the market.

Unlike more common electric bikes with low capacity 36 volt batteries, we splurged on the RadRover battery packs because we know that this is the single most important component of any electric bike. The Samsung 48 volt 11.6 Ah battery packs a punch, and has the capacity and range to be there for you when you need it most at the end of a long ride. At only 7 pounds this is one of the lightest and most energy dense battery packs ever supplied on an electric bike. Combine that with the external battery meter, USB accessory charger, and easy removal for charging and transport, and you have got a feature rich battery pack you can depend on.
