Rad Power Bikes Makes Market Entrance into Canada, Debuting International Expansion with Free Shipping of Entire Fleet of Premium Electric Bikes

Company committed to Canadian market and offering fun, affordable, and sustainable transportation alternative to automobiles

SEATTLE, WA and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2017) - Rad Power Bikes®, a Seattle-based direct-to-consumer electric bike company, today announced their market entrance into Canada, providing Canadian consumers an affordable, energy-efficient and eco-friendly premium alternative to conventional transportation. This milestone marks the company's first international market debut outside the United States.

Effective immediately, all Rad Power Bikes models are available with free shipping to Canada, a $400 savings from the previous shipping and delivery option. Equipped with a powerful 500-watt motor, all Rad Power Bikes' Canadian models comply with Federal rules and regulations for electric bikes.

Daniel Henderson, Rad Power Bikes' Canadian Business Director, has been preparing for the launch into his home territory. "As a Canadian living on the West Coast of Canada, I have seen the demand for reliable ebikes that complement our active lifestyles grow and mature over the last half-decade. I'm excited to head the expansion into Canada as we launch our headquarters and distribution center in Vancouver, BC," said Henderson. "By expanding our distribution into Canada and now more than ever giving my fellow Canadians a sustainable, value-forward transportation solution, we are going to help so many people discover the joy of ebikes."

Rad Power Bikes is dedicated to making high-quality and reliable electric bikes that are sustainable for our planet, affordable for more people, and tailored to meet a broad range of consumer lifestyles and needs. The company offers four unique models, three models at $1,999 Canadian MSRP and one model at $2,099 Canadian MSRP, which include:

  • RadRover: The ultimate all-purpose electric fat bike for commuting, off-roading, and snowy trails with 4" all-terrain tires. MSRP: $1,999
  • RadMini: The first and only electric folding fat bike with dual front and rear cargo racks, making it the perfect tool for last-mile commutes, hunting and fishing trips. MSRP: $1,999
  • RadCity: The premium electric commuter bike for a nimble, comfortable, non-sweaty ride into the office, around the city, or to your next meeting. MSRP: $1,999
  • RadWagon: The electric cargo bike and ultimate car replacement, able to carry up to 350 pounds of cargo, groceries, and seating for passengers. MSRP: $2,099

All Rad Power Bikes are packed with an LCD screen, a twist-grip throttle, and five levels of electric power assist: this level of control offers riders the options of complete electric power, manual pedaling, or five levels of power-assisted pedaling.

"Since inception, our mission has been to enhance our customers' lives and improve the communities in which they live through the introduction of new sustainable transportation alternatives. We are excited not only to expand and share our product offering with Canadians, but also to introduce our Canadian Business Director Daniel Henderson," said Mike Radenbaugh, CEO of Rad Power Bikes. "We are working closely together to deliver a uniquely Canadian product experience; we absolutely love spending time in Canada. This is a great next step for us. We are committed to this market and to learning how our products can serve their environment, biking, and lifestyle wants and needs." 

While standard shipping and self-assembly comes free of charge, consumers in Canada have the option to choose shipping and delivery with Vancouver-based velofix, one of the largest franchisers of Mobile Bike Shops operating in every major Canadian market. The $149 velofix DIRECT program offers consumers a white-glove user experience that includes professional assembly, tuning, and delivery to eliminate any stress or anxiety associated with assembling or tuning their new bike.

Rad Power Bikes plans to continue its international expansion to several additional markets later this year. Consumers interested in purchasing or learning more can do so directly at www.radpowerbikes.ca
