10 Reasons to Buy Radcity 5 High Step

  • The Radcity 5 High Step features 7-speed gearing that makes it easier to pedal, shift turns and keep the bike stable at downhill climbs.
  • The electric bike is powered by a 750W motor that balances speed, acceleration, and power so there's less risk of falling, better movement on paved roads, and greater chances of reaching top speed with ease.
  • The e-bike is integrated with a spring fork suspension that supports the weight of the bike, makes pedaling effortless on uphill climbs, and reduces strain on the rider's legs.
  • It is built with a 6061 aluminum frame, it is waterproof, corrosion-resistant, and handles impact well.
  • The hydraulic disc brakes of the Radcity 5 High Step allow the bike to come to a gentle stop, even at high speeds, reducing the risk of jerking forward and hitting the pavement.
  • The Radcity 5 High Step battery charges to a full tank by connecting to standard 100V to 240V power outlets, commonly found in homes and offices.
  • The electric bike is outfitted with a backlit LCD screen that displays speed, battery life, odometer, and pedal assist level without draining the battery.
  • There are five pedal assist levels on the electric bike and it allows bike riders to control the speed of their pedaling and enjoy mild acceleration on paved roads and aggressive throttle on highways.
  • The wheels of the Radcity 5 High Step are protected by fenders, which allows for smoother and faster rides.
  • The handlebar and grip of the Radcity 5 High Step are ergonomic, which enhances the comfort of the rider, and are covered by imitation leather that works in all seasons and lasts long.

3 Reasons Not to Buy Radcity 5 High Step

  • The Radcity 5 High Step’s cockpit is cable-heavy and may get in the way of bushes while riding in the wild.
  • The e-bike is available in one size that fits riders of 5'4 to 6'5 stature only, and the seat is mildly adjustable.
  • The LCD screen does not have a dark mode option so it's difficult to view the speed, battery, and other stats in the sun.

Bottom Line

The Radcity 5 High Step or Plus is one of the best-performing and affordable electric bikes. It is intuitive enough to be simple for novice bike riders and feature-fed with power to satisfy the adrenaline of seasoned cyclists.
