The new Reid KADe electric cargo bike gives you all the key features of the leading bikes in this new and exciting category - but for a fraction of the price: 

\n

Why sit in traffic and fight for a park each day? 
This is the electric bike you’ve been waiting for to replace the car on most of your local journeys - to school, the shops, work or visiting friends on the weekend. Load up with children, shopping or deliveries and easily pedal on your way! 

\n

Kids, hills, heavy loads? No problem. 
With a reliable 110Nm of torque from the Ananda M100 mid-drive motor, you can power uphill and under load with pedal assistance up to 25km/hr for over 150km on a single charge of the dual battery system. Plus you can easily lug it all with our handy range of cargo and passenger carrying accessories including padded rack seat and baby seats.

\n

Simple and balanced to ride
Although one of the most powerful ecargo bikes in its class, the KADe electric bike is a breeze to own and use. With a low centre of gravity from the mid-mount motor position, 24” wheels, step-through frame (so you can put your feet on the ground at stops), clever geometry and long wheelbase; this bike is designed so that even smaller riders can handle it confidently while lugging a lot of weight or a few wriggling children. 

\n

One size fits most
Thanks to relaxed geometry and a highly adjustable cockpit, the KADe comes in one size but can be shared around the family from 5’ to 6’5”. Simply set the handlebars and saddle height and start riding. 

\n

Safety first
From thoughtful and balanced design, through to the powerful and easy to use Shimano MT200 Hydraulic Disc brakes with 160mm rotors, the vibrant colour and integrated front and rear lights powered from the battery - this is an electric cargo bike made for safe, daily use no matter how you choose to ride it.

\n

You no longer need to rent an electric cargo bike
With the new KADe ecargo bike, you no longer need to rent or lease an expensive mid-drive electric cargo bike. With the money you save on using your car all the time, this affordable ebike will quickly pay for itself. The other good news is that electric cargo bikes hold their value and won’t depreciate nearly as fast as other forms of personal transport.

\n

Test ride or pre-order now
Supply is limited and you will see on the roads each day that demand for these bikes is incredibly high and growing. If you would like to get on board, please pre-order now or contact our Customer Support team to register your interest in a test ride.

\n

Our range of Electric Bikes all include the industry-leading Reid Warranty: lifetime on frame and rigid forks, 2 years on non-consumable parts, 1 year/5,000 km (whichever comes first) warranty on eBike system components and 2 free services within the first 12 months. We also offer our Online customers a 30 Day Test Ride to guarantee you get a great deal.

FAQ - Electric Bikes

\n

Q. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ANANDA MID DRIVE MOTOR?

\n

Mid-drive electric bikes offer more options in terms of gearing, smoother acceleration and lowers the centre of gravity of the bike giving a more stable ride when cornering with luggage and kids on board.

\n

Q. HOW FAST DOES AN EBIKE GO?

\n

Electric bikes in Australia are limited to 250w and will assist you up to 25km/hr - going faster than this is up to the effort of the rider. Any motor providing more power will be classified as a motorbike and must be registered and ridden by a licenced rider.

\n

Q. HOW FAR CAN I TRAVEL ON A FULL CHARGE?

\n

The range you can expect depends on how hard the battery is working. This will be affected by factors like the weight of the rider, how much luggage you’re carrying, tyre pressure, hills/terrain, road condition, wind and the level of assistance or power setting you use.

\n

You can expect the KADe LG/Lishen dual battery system to last around 150km+ on roads with a few hills and a bit of weight on board.

\n

Q. HOW DO I CHARGE AN EBIKE AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

\n

Simply plug the charger into a standard wall socket at work or when you get home. To charge the batteries from 0% to 80% will take 2 hours, 100% in 4 hours. Most of the time though you’ll just need to top up rather than completely refill. You can remove the batteries from the bike to make this easier.

\n

Q. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CHARGE?

\n

A fraction of what it takes to power a car! At 30c/kWh x 0.418kWh = 12.5c for a full charge.

\n

Q. CAN I RIDE IN THE RAIN?

\n

Yes, all of these units are sealed and made for all-conditions riding.

\n

Q. CAN I SWITCH OFF THE ENGINE AND RIDE IT LIKE NORMAL?

\n

Yes. Remove the battery pack and it will feel very much like a normal bike.

\n

Q. WHAT DOES ‘PEDELEC’ MEAN?

\n

The most popular electric bike system in Australia is the pedelec (or pedal assist) system. You ride a pedaled assisted eBike by pedalling as normal, while the electric motor adds power to each pedal stroke - flattening out the hills and getting you up to speed with much less effort.

\n

Q. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SERVICE MY EBIKE?

\n

We recommend your electric bike is serviced during the first 3 months of ownership as components bed in. Frequency of servicing after that depends on usage and what maintenance you choose to do yourself in terms of caring for the chain and other basic tasks. A regular rider who does not perform any maintenance may benefit from servicing every 6 months. Click here for more information on servicing.
