"If you’re in the market for an eBike that is quite literally half the price of it’s European competition, then this is definitely a bike to consider."
Bike Exchange, KADe eCargo Bike review, October 2022. KADe Review

" The KADe comes with all the features you'll need but at half the price of its more established competitors... If you are considering an e-cargo bike, the KADe must be on your list."
Bicycle Network, KADe eCargo Bike Review, February 2023. KADe Review

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:

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!

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 100km+ 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.

The rear rack is perfect for carrying kids or friends and is rated for loads of 100kg.

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.

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.

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 automatic light-sensing 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.

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.

We now also offer you the convenience of 3 or 12-months interest free finance options via ZIP. Ask stores for details or choose as payment method at checkout.

eBikes FAQ

Q. How far can I travel on a full charge?

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.

We will list the distance you can expect to ride under ideal conditions in the product details section of each Electric Bike.

As a general guide though, the range varies from around 60km per full charge for our 10.4Ah battery hub motor eBikes, up to 100-120km+ for our 14Ah Ananda mid-mount eBikes. The dual-battery system on the KADe can even cover 150km+.

Q. How do I charge an Electric Bike and how long will it take?

Simply plug the charger into a standard wall socket at work or when you get home. To charge the battery 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. Charging times are similar for Bafang and Ananda systems.

Q. What are the benefits of a hub motor style eBike?

For commuting and touring electric bikes designed for use on roads and paths, rear hub motors offer a more discrete, lighter and more affordable choice over a mid-mount motor design.

Bafang are the largest rear hub eBike manufacturer in the world and growing rapidly in Europe and the US. The motor is light and unobtrusive at only 2.9 kg, recharge time is quick and the range is good. Considering how affordable these ebikes are, a new electric bike now makes a lot of sense for more people.

Q. What are the benefits of a mid-mount motor style eBike?

The mid-mount position offers more options in terms of gearing, smoother acceleration and lowers the centre of gravity of the bike giving a more stable ride over broken ground or when cornering. This benefit is really felt when off-road or riding at speed.

Mid-drive motors are especially preferred by riders looking for more torque when riding (perfect for pinch climbs on a Mountain Bike). Unlike a hub-drive motor, the mid-drive motor directly drives the crank instead of the wheel. This has the benefit of multiplying power and allowing the bike to better take advantage of existing gears.

Q. Can I ride an eBike in the rain?

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

Q. Can I switch off the motor and ride it like a normal bike?

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

Q. What does 'Pedelec' mean?

The most popular electric bike system in Australia is the pedelec (or pedal assist) system. You ride a pedelec 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.

Q. How much does it cost to charge an eBike?

It depends on the battery, but as an example using a standard 418Wh battery:

At 30c/kWh x 0.418kWh = 12.5c for a full charge. Costs are similar with the Bafang and Ananda systems.

100km for 12.5c and a fraction of the carbon output of a car - yes, this is the future of personal transport.

Q. How often should I service my Electric Bike?

The same as we would recommend for any bicycle.

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.

Q. How can I safely handle and use a Li-ion Electric Bike battery?

Lithium Ion batteries are a powerful technology that have given us handy cordless tools and devices from mobile phones and laptops, to power drills, vacuum cleaners and now electric bikes.

This is an increasingly common power source that is here to stay, and is safe if handled properly. Read our full safety guide here.

    eCargo I can afford.

    Have 4000 km on mine so far using it to commute daily. Everything is working well so far in spite of the spec being very price focussed. Motor is good and while lacking some of the bells and whistles of expensive brands gives nothing up in performance.

    Great affordable e-cargo

    We tried lots of types of cargos and felt this KADe bike was great value. Easy to ride and adjust for different heights in our family. My four year old can climb onto the back herself and feels pretty secure with the frame. I choose this taller cargo bike to get longevity out of it riding little ones as they get taller. The ride is easy to manoeuvre, it’s heavy like other cargos, but fine to steer. Happy with our purchase!
