RadCity 5 Plus & RadRover 6 Plus: Which Is Best for You?

A man and woman on a suburban street with their RadCity 5 Plus and RadRover 6 Plus.

Two new models recently joined our lineup: the RadCity 5 Plus and the Rad Rover 6 Plus. Want to figure out which one might be best for you? Let's break it down.

The RadCity 5 Plus

This might be the bike for you if:

  • You’re a commuter looking to turn that long daily trip into a joyride.
  • Sometimes there are obstacles in your path. You need an agile bike that can swiftly move around them.
  • You go the distance and want an electric city bike with 11% more range than any other Rad model.


If you’re looking for an ebike to help you explore your city and hit up your favorite spots, you’re going to love the RadCity 5 Plus. It builds on the classic RadCity with a 750W geared hub motor fine-tuned for urban riding and 27.5” x 2.0” tires with a custom tread that helps boost your range when riding on pavement.


The RadRover 6 Plus 

This might be the bike for you if:

  • You can’t get enough of the outdoor life, whether that’s camping, hiking, or just a ride through nature.
  • You crave trails off the beaten path and need fat tires that can handle uneven terrain.
  • A rocky road's more fun than a rocky ride. That's why you're looking for durable suspension. 


With rugged 26” x 4” fat tires built for off-road adventures, the RadRover is a longtime favorite of electric mountain bike fans and casual riders alike. The latest edition of our flagship ebike maximizes the comfort and promises a next-level riding experience.

How They’re Similar

While the bikes are designed for different riding conditions, the RadCity 5 Plus and RadRover 6 Plus both feature a slate of new features:

  • Hydraulic disc brakes for more control over your ride.
  •  40% faster hill climbing capability.
  • A custom semi-integrated battery that easily pops in and out.
  • A more accessible, ergonomic frame.
  • An upgraded user interface to track your stats.

 With rider refinements like that, it's hard to go wrong!
