Overall, the RadCity Step-Thru 3 offers a tremendous and reliable 750W Shengyi direct drive hub motor, which is why we gave it a perfect score out of 100. This allows the rider to not only accelerate smoothly as we mentioned, however, but its innovative brushless regenerative braking system also enables users to slow down on downhills or to a complete stop that automatically charges your battery every time you engage the brakes—saving your electric power for longer. We also gave this bike a perfect score in terms of cost as this bike is only $1999 CAD, which is significantly lower than other price points on our list.
However, this electric bike scored very low in weight, access to service centers, and design with the ’20s across the board. At 65 pounds in total, the e-bike is partially on the heavier side because of the direct hub drive system, battery, and frame. We also gave it a lower score in terms of design. It is not as aesthetically pleasing compared to other bikes and is quite essential.
