RadCity 5 Plus Step-Thru Electric Commuter Bike RadCity is one of the best-selling ebikes in the US. The bike series has traditionally offered a solid balance of power, features, and affordability, and it recently received arguably its biggest update ever. We got the chance to go hands-on with the RadCity 5 Plus, which looks like a  compelling entry into the reasonably-priced ebike market at a price of $1,799.

The changes this time around aren’t totally surprising — they largely reflect the same changes given to the RadRover 6 Plus, which received its own redesign in July. The bike comes with what I think most people would consider a much sleeker design, thanks in large part to a battery that is semi-integrated into the body.


Here are some of the other key highlights you should be aware of:

  • The bike comes in both high-step and step-through designs for accessibility.
  • It has a speed limit of 20mph.
  • The battery is rated at 672 Wh (48V X 14Ah).
  • It comes with a 60mm suspension fork.
  • It comes with hydraulic disk brakes (previous versions used mechanical disk brakes).
  • You get a bright headlight and a taillight that glows extra bright when you start to brake.
  • It features a new custom dual-display system with more information at a glance.
  • Fenders are included.
  • The bike is water-resistant (Rad Power Bikes is from Seattle, after all).
  • Included rear rack (removable), optional front rack. On previous bikes, the rear rack was integrated, so it couldn’t be replaced.
  • Adjustable stem to fit many riders.
  • A wealth of other accessories.
  • New custom puncture-resistant tires are more efficient for urban environments, allowing for 11% more range (Rad Power Bikes says “up to 50+ miles” overall)
  • You still get 5 levels of cadence-based pedal assist and a twist throttle.
  • The new 750W hub motor is now geared to climb hills 40% faster.

    Works Great glad I Purchased! Works Great glad I Purchased! Handles the grades we have all through our neibourhood very well, allos us to get out more. Upgraded the seat to a much softer one.

  2. William B

    So far, I’m loving my new Rad City 5! Between the pedal assist and the power boost, it allows for a most enjoyable ride! Looking forward to warmer, drier weather to do much more exploring!

  3. Jeffry D

    It all works like it should. Love riding it! My only dislike is that it’s a little heavy. I look forward to this summer of riding, getting groceries and stuff, visiting friends and any excuses to ride that I can think of.

    Great Bike. Was easy to assemble and performs very well. I love having the throttle on those windy days so i can stop peddling for a little break.

    The controls and displays are easy to operate. Very well made bike

    Very happy with my bike. Already have 200 kms on it. Seat is a little hard so I ordered a softer one.

  11. Dennis T.

    It will be better if the weight of the bike can be reduced.

  12. Reg W.

    Like everything about my new RadCity 5 and have recommended Better Ebikes to friends.

  13. Freed E.

    Yes … Loving this bike , rides great, nice upright position for me .

    Only thing I would have done different , due to slight hip problems , is buy the full Step Thru model , like my wife’s .

    On line support from Rad is been fantastic .

  14. Sydney B

    Just love the bikes. We have two radcity 5, and we ride whenever the weather allows. The bikes are very easy to handle and so far, only 200 kilometres, no mechanical issues.
