The LCD displays on our bikes showcase all of the important information you will need when riding. All bikes by Rad Power Bikes use the same display and show the same information. The LCD display information categories include:
You interact with the display using the three buttons on the "display remote" on the left side of the handlebar, which includes an up arrow, down arrow, and a mode button).
Each button and combinations of the 3 buttons to perform a variety of operations and toggle between different information on the LCD Display. Reference the LCD Display Operations table below for instructions on how to perform various operations using these buttons and, when applicable, other components of the bike.
LCD Display Operations
Walk mode is a feature that uses the motor to move the bike at a relatively slow speed so that a person can walk next to the bike with their hands on the handlebars, without having to push the full weight of the bike. This can be very helpful when walking the bike up a steep hill, like hills over 15% grade. For more information on riding on hilly terrain, please see the Help Center article linked HERE.
Walk mode should only be used while dismounted from the bike and with both hands on the handlebars. Always keep at least one hand on a brake lever to allow quick cutoff of the motor assistance if necessary and to maintain control of the bike.
The LCD Display is equipped with a USB charging port that can be used to charge many portable electronic devices on the go. To charge a portable electronic device using the LCD Display, power the LCD Display off and then locate the USB Port on LCD Display’s edge closest to rider and unplug rubber cover. With the LCD Display powered off, plug a USB charging cable (not included) into the USB Port on LCD Display, and plug the other end of the charging cable into the portable electronic device (not included). Once all components have been plugged in securely, turn on the bike by pressing MODE.
Notice: The USB Charging Port charges many, but not all, portable electronic devices. Larger phones, which require higher power in order to charge, may not register charging. If the display indicates “USB”, it will still supplement the battery power for the phone, but the device may not register charging, and the state of charge may still decrease.
