Rad Power Bikes establishes brick-and-mortar in Canada

Electric bike brand Rad Power Bikes is growing its Canadian headquarters and opening a retail showroom in East Vancouver this summer.

The expansion will bring a physical presence to the company’s Canadian online business, which has been active since 2015. The new location will allow customers to take test rides and talk face-to-face with the local team. Rad Power Bikes will host a grand opening celebration when the showroom opens in June.

"I’m especially excited to bring the joys of e-biking to even more of my neighbours," said Daniel Henderson, Rad Power Bikes’ Canadian business director. "We’re building a great place where our growing Vancouver team can not only connect with our community in person but better serve our customers all across Canada."

The Vancouver showroom will be Rad Power Bikes’ third brick and mortar location, joining the Seattle, Washington headquarters and European showroom in Utrecht, Netherlands.

“Putting down roots is just as important to us as it is to our customers,” said Mike Radenbaugh, co-founder and CEO of Rad Power Bikes. “The first-hand experience and support at the retail showroom will complement our existing foundation in Canada, which includes our bustling online store, free shipping, and white glove home delivery with velofix Direct.”
