Electric Family Bikes

What is an electric family bike, and is it the right ebike for you? Let’s explore all the features and benefits these ebikes, also known as a electric cargo bikes. We classify any ebike offering additional passenger capacity as a family electric bike. They deliver fun and mobility to you, your children, and other passengers (up to the bike’s payload capacity, of course).

Our customers use these family and passenger ebikes to drop kids off to school, tackle the grocery run, or head out with a friend on the back to see a show. From our blog:

“It makes me feel like I can conquer the hills. With an electric bike, it’s a breeze. Without it, we’d never be as excited to go on a family bike ride.”

We offer two models capable of carrying multiple children or an adult passenger. Many families choose our RadWagon and RadRunner ebikes for hauling children and cargo because of the support from our powerful geared-hub motors, pedal assist, and 300- or 350-lb payload capacity. Both models can be customized for passenger comfort and safety with a variety of accessories.

Frame types

There are several types of ebike frames primarily used for riding with families and passengers.

Standard ebikes fitted with child seats. These are electric bikes with an added or integrated rear rack to which you safely mount a child seat.

Long-tail ecargo bikes that can accommodate up to three smaller passengers on the long rear frame.These bikes can be customized with a variety of accessories, including seating and child seats – even protecting against the elements. Our longtail RadWagon model has a payload capacity of 350 lbs and is powered by a 750w motor to power your heaviest, most precious loads easily.

Moped-style electric utility bikes with a comfortable passenger saddle that can accomodate small or large passengers. Our RadRunner, moped-style models are one of the most popular in our lineup. Featuring a 300-lb. payload capacity, our RadRunner 2 model can be accessorized with a passenger saddle, foot pegs and support bar, and our RadRunner Plus comes outfitted with everything included for you and a friend to get on and go.

Bakfiets, front-loading ecargo bikes, are a type of family electric bike popular in Europe, and gaining popularity in North America. They are iconic for their large passenger basket at the front of the bike that can fit multiple small children. Rad Power Bikes do not currently offer a front-loading model.

Design Use

Our primary family ebike models come with 750W rear hub motors, up to 45 miles per charge, and either 300- or 350-lb payload capacity. Cargo-bike models feature step-through or mid-step frames to provide easier access for mounting, riding, and stopping while helping manage the weight of your passengers.

All of our ecargo models come with different levels of pedal assist to help power you along at your own pace. The half-twist throttle is an extra boost of power which can help get the bike rolling when it’s heavily loaded. Depending on the model, frames work with a rigid or shock fork.

Smaller diameter 20” or 22” wheels and fat tires 3” to 3.3” wide provide increased stability when you ride on hills or paths. These slightly thinner tires have less rolling resistance and are quieter while still offering great stability and slightly zippier feel.

The key to a smooth ride is to find the appropriate air pressure for your setup and loads. Slightly lower pressures are better for bumpier conditions, snow, or mud (but not too low). A higher pressure works better with paved or smooth surfaces. Be sure to fit within the recommended range that’s listed on your tire sidewalls.

Family Ebike Safety Comfort

Depending on the age of the children or passengers you may be carrying, it’s important to consider appropriate safety gear and passenger comfort accessories. For babies and toddlers, we recommend mounting a child seat such as the Thule Yepp Child Seat. Almost all Rad Power Bikes are compatible and our RadWagon long-tail models can hold two Thule Yepp Child seats.

family, passenger, ebikes, youth, electric

With the long-tail RadWagon, we recommend accessories like Caboose stability rails and Running Boards for support. For traveling comfortably in bad weather, you can add a water-resistant Conestoga top for protection from the elements. For older children, customers typically add a Deckpad seat, Deckhand stability bars and footpegs.

Our RadRunner models can also be outfitted with child bike seats or a stylish, comfortable passenger seat with foot pegs as your passengers get bigger.

We recommend parents and passenger-carriers consider safety accessory upgrades like a rear view mirror, premium headlight or reflective stickers to help keep safe throughout the year. Everyone riding should wear a helmet that’s the right size and fit for safety. Rad offers a full line of top-rated and cool helmets for any rider. Find out how to buy the best helmet for you in our blog.

Child Seat vs. Passenger Seat (Age Limits)

While there is no exact age when to switch your child from a child carrier to a passenger seat, we recommend only switching from child seats to these setups when your child is tall enough to reach foot supports and can hold on to stability bars comfortably.

Of course, there is no age too old to be a passenger on a Rad ride as long as you follow the weight restrictions of the rear rack and your passenger can wear a helmet, support themselves on the seat, and hold on for ride safety.

Limit to Number of Child Seats

Almost all of our regular ebikes are capable of safely carrying one additional passenger with a child seat or passenger seat. Only the RadWagon long-tail cargo ebike is capable of fitting two children safely on the back. Please make sure to also check your local government regulations; there may be restrictions that do not permit more than one child per bicycle no matter the capabilities of your bike.

Please also note the payload capacity of the individual electric bicycle you own, which will help decide the number of passengers you can accommodate. The rear rack for both ebikes is rated for a weight limit of 120 lbs or under, and you must not exceed total payload capacity of the ebikes (RadRunner payload capacity is 300 lbs; RadWagon is 350 lbs).

Storing Transport

All Rad Power Bikes are built with dimensions similar to regular bicycles, therefore, they can generally fit wherever you would store your ebike. The RadWagon is our only long-tail bike, so check that your storage can fit the full length of this bike which is 78.7” or a little more than 6.5’. Please note your dimensions can get bigger with added accessories.

Electric bikes are heavier than regular bikes. We recommend storing a Rad bike in a location where you can access or carry the bike up stairs or lift into storage regularly.

Rad bikes can be transported like regular ebikes on a vehicle with an appropriate vehicle accessories like bike racks and adapter bars for our step-thru bike models.

RadWagon ebikes are extra long, so please check traffic safety requirements when transporting it on your vehicle.

RadWagon is the ultimate family hauler. Love taking this out to run errands or pickup kids from school! Best 40 min of my day getting to ride instead of sitting in a car.Colby B.

Great bike all around! I was able to travel through San Francisco with a passenger and went almost 30 miles!Chansavang O.

We’re on it almost everyday. My two girls and I absolutely love riding around, exploring new trails and parks. It has been one of the best purchases ever!Alexandria J.

Great first e-bike! Overall the bike is great! I did a ton of research before buying and landed on the RadRunner Plus as a first do-everything e-bike. Assembly was easy enough after watching the video walkthrough. It’s super fun to ride and my wife said the same as a rider and passenger.Richard T.

The RW4 is BIG! But it’s great for riding with my 2 kids (3 1). I’ve had no issues getting used to the pedal assist or the throttle. I find it easy to load the kids up using the kickstand and get going with just a little throttle. I was able to put it together by myself and I’ve added a few extras for carrying the kids. Overall I LOVE the bike. I may bring it to a bike shop just to adjust some of the components (brakes are rubbing). Our rad runner just arrived yesterday so I can’t wait till we can all ride together.Don W.

Customer Reviews

It.said up to 5 years old it’s to small he just turned 5 40 pounds bike is to lift. How do I send it back

It’s a little heavier than I’d hoped. The throttle isn’t progressive, it’s basically an on/off switch, there is no modulation or way to maintain a speed other than maximum. Brake works well but handle is a little hard to pull for a small child. Battery life is good so far. My 5 yr old loves it even though he’s almost to big for it as the seat has limited height adjustment. My 2 yr old who has mastered his strider balance bike likes this one, but its a little heavy for him and seat is kind of wide for a child, almost looks like a full size seat, but it very soft and comfortable. I would buy again, and I think its a good value for the price and assembly was easy with clear instructions

I bought this for my daughter, I have been trying to get her off training wheels and nothing was working. In just 20 minutes she was riding like a pro.

I have been reading bad reviews about the hiboy. My sons birthday is in three days so he will try it then. I hope it works well! We charged it up and we are keeping it hidden from him now. We will see! ?

How Old Do Kids Need To Be To Ride an Electric Bike?

Are your kids begging you to ditch the traditional bike and snag them the latest electric bike ? Are they watching you have all the fun, jealous that their parents have the coolest new ride on the market? The e-bike trend continues to rise, with the youngest generation trying to get in on the adult action. But can kids have this exciting outdoor experience? The answer is it depends. Before investing in a bike for your youth, it’s essential to understand the local bike safety regulations.

What Age Can You Start Riding an Electric Bike?

The traditional bike demands physical pedaling and balance and remains readily available for youth. However, because electric bikes contain a motor, kids must have the maturity and prowess to control something with more speed. While not labeled as cars, legislators often view the e-bike as motorized transportation. Thus, legislatures passed laws with children’s safety in mind. States such as California, Florida and Washington have broken e-bikes into categories. Low-speed selections could boast no age limits, with many agencies placing restrictions on what they consider Class 3 units: bikes with a motor whose power source stops when the transport reaches 28 miles. As of now, the youngest approved age for this particular product remains 14. However, you should check your local laws to determine the earliest age to ride an electric bike in your area.

Are E-Bikes Legal in Your City/State?

In the sunny state of California, people have embraced the electric bike. using it on trails, the beach and for easy commuting. Teens 16 and older may use a Class 3 e-bike but must wear a helmet, and they cannot have passengers. A license, however, is not mandated. Arizona currently has no minimum age, and Utah allows children eight and above to ride an electric bike with a parent or guardian. At 14, teens may enjoy the bike on their own. In New York City, a state popular for commutes, owners may use their e-bikes within the traditional bike lanes and only on streets with a reasonable speed limit. Teens must be 16 or older. States such as Alabama, Alaska, Idaho and Massachusetts also demand riders have a license before heading out on the streets.

Quick Tips On Buying an eBike For Your Teen

Riders are different; therefore, companies build a range of products to suit interests and locations. Therefore, start your e-bike shopping by writing a list of your teens’ needs and interests. Consider the following factors:

  • What are the primary purposes of the bike?
  • What is the terrain like in your area?
  • Does your child require additional motor support?
  • What colors does your child prefer?
  • Do you need a basket or spot for storage?
  • Does your teen demand an enhanced physical support system?

Allow these answers to guide your shopping.

An e-bike makes a beautiful gift for your kids. However, check your local legislation first. Learn about your area’s age limits and requirements. If your teens are of age, find the perfect ride, teaching them to follow the laws and remain safe.
