US brand Rad Power has brought its latest folding e-bike, the RadExpand 5 to the European market. It’s available in the UK for £1,349.
The RadExpand is similarly affordable and with its rear hub motor and sizeable 672Wh battery seems cut from similar cloth.
Also like those two bikes, it’s a chunky-looking thing with 4-inch tyres and a rear rack rated for up to 25kg of cargo. (You can add a front rack too, as well as a number of RadPower’s other accessories, including various baskets and bags.)
At 28kg, the RadExpand is about 2kg lighter than its predecessor, but it’s still not really the kind of folding e-bike you’d want to be heaving around on public transport. The fold is more for storage or so that you can easily stick it in the boot of your car.
Other than that, you get Rad Power’s own display, mudguards, 7-speed Microshift gears and mechanical disc brakes.
It’s also got front and rear LED lights.
