Many electric bicycle and scooter companies have announced discounts for healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But now Rad Power Bikes, the largest e-bike company in the US, is offering a big $200 discount to a wide range of people who serve their communities.

Rad Power Bikes offers a wide range of electric bicycles from folding e-bikes to fat tire e-bikes and even longtail cargo e-bikes. The bikes all reach speeds of 20 mph (32 km/h) and sport 750W motors, making them powerful enough for hauling cargo or climbing hills.

Most of the bikes in Rad’s lineup range from $1,199 to $1,499. The company’s new discount of $200 for a wide range of service jobs thus amounts to around 13-17% off current prices.

Those eligible for the discount include:
  • Students (with an eligible email address)
  • Teachers (K-12 and professors)
  • Medical workers (doctors, nurses and medical staff)
  • First responders (police, fire, and EMTs)
  • Military (active duty, veterans and dependents)
Rad explained the move in a statement on their website:
“For those that serve us. To show our appreciation, we’ve doubled our discount for those who strive to keep our communities safe. Register to enjoy $200 off all ebike purchases. This discount applies to not just medical personnel and first responders, but teachers, students, and active/former members of the military as well. Thank you for all that you do.”

Which Rad Power Bike is right for you?

If you’ve been considering getting an e-bike lately, or specifically a Rad Power Bike, this would definitely be the time to do it.

RadRunner ($999 with discount) – The newest model in Rad’s lineup, this is a utility bike that is large enough for cargo but small enough for a nimble ride. It even offers a bench seat with passenger footpegs for carrying a second rider.

RadCity ($1,299 with discount) – This is the bike you want if you’ll be commuting or riding mostly for fitness. It has a powerful motor for when you need to get where you’re going fast but is also easy to pedal with efficient narrow tires.

RadRover ($1,299 with discount) – This is Rad Power Bikes’ main fat tire e-bike. It features large-diameter wheels and is perfect for double duty on the street or on the trail. You can ride over just about anything with the RadRover.

RadWagon ($1,299 with discount) – The RadWagon is the main cargo bike off the line. It shares the powerful direct-drive motor from the RadCity but offers a stretched frame with a long rear rack and side platforms for supporting passengers or pannier bags.

RadMini Step-Thru ($1,299 with discount) – Big and little at the same time! The RadMini offers fat tires but in a 20″ format, keeping the size of the bike down compared to the RadRover. It also folds for extreme portability and storage.
