Consumer-direct ebike brand Rad Power Bikes has introduced its latest model, the RadRover Step-Thru—a low-step version of its flagship electric fat bike.

The RadRover Step-Thru rolls on 26 x 4-inch Kenda Juggernaut fat tires with K-Shield puncture-resistant liners and is powered by a 750W Bafang geared hub motor (500W in Canada), with five levels of pedal assist and 80Nm of torque, and a 48V 14Ah lithium-ion battery. It also comes equipped with a half-twist throttle.

Spec includes an RST suspension fork with 80 millimeters of travel, Tektro cable-actuated disc brakes with 180-millimeter rotors, a seven-speed Shimano Acera derailleur, a DNP 11-34T cassette, 170-millimeter ProWheel Pioneer alloy cranks with a 42T chainring and double-sided bash guard, imitation leather ergonomic grips, and a Velo Plush saddle with a lifting handle,

The ebike is available for preorder for $1,499. It’s expected to start shipping in early February.

“The RadRover launched our business in 2015 and gave a jolt to the ebike revolution by proving that electric bikes can be durable, powerful, affordable, and built for everyday adventure. Five years later, we’re reinforcing our commitment to ebike accessibility and utility with the RadRover Step-Thru,” said Mike Radenbaugh, Rad Power Bikes’ founder and CEO. “This beast of a bike combines the rugged capabilities of our flagship high-step model with a new frame style that fits the needs of more riders.”

Rad Power also announced updates to several of its current models, including the high-step RadRover 5, the RadMini 4 and RadMini Step-Thru 2 electric folding bikes, and the RadCity 4 and RadCity Step-Thru 3 commuter ebikes.

“Each of these new models received upgrades that offer more value at no added cost, including fenders now coming standard on the RadRover and RadMini models, along with custom mounting points for future security-focused accessories on the RadCity models,” Rad Power stated. “The RadCity 4 has also been updated to a single 18.5-inch frame size. Other improvements consist of new halo headlights with improved side visibility, a streamlined throttle design, and a refreshed look across the entire lineup.”
