Rad Power Bikes RadExpand 5 Review | Electric Folding Bike (2022)
The newest addition to the Rad Power Bikes lineup and the successor to the RadMini 4, the Rad Power Bikes RadExpand 5 is an electric folding bike with a 750W motor and some unique features that set it apart from other folders we’ve reviewed.
Rad appears to have leaned into the American definition of the electric folding bike with this new model by focusing on ride quality over ultra-trimmed folding. The traditional handlepost has been swapped out for a set of BMX-style bars (that still fold) and the folding pedals are now just normal pedals. These seemingly small changes had done wonders for the bike’s handling.
There are also some other changes worth noting, including a lack of LCD display and front suspension fork — features that were on the old RadMini 4, Rad’s previous electric folding bike. In this Rad Power Bikes RadExpand 5 review we put the bike to the test in the real world to see how these changes play out.
In this RadExpand 5 review we put the bike through its paces in a series of tests to see how the motor, brakes, battery and more hold up.
