Handlebar Mitts Installation Guide

The Handlebar Mitts from Rad Power Bikes can be attached to any 2018 and later bike model from Rad Power Bikes. The Handlebar Mitts come with locking end caps for the handlebar that will replace the stock press-fit end caps. Follow the steps below to install the Handlebar Mitts on your bike.

  Notice

If you are not confident in your ability to successfully and safely perform all steps, we recommend having the work performed or checked by a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic.

Contents:

  • Handlebar Mitt x2
  • Locking handlebar end cap x2
  • End cap spacer x2

Tools needed:

  • Flat head screwdriver
  • 3 mm Allen wrench

Installation;

  1. Get the bike ready for maintenance. Turn off the bike, remove the battery, and press and hold the "MODE" or "POWER" button to discharge remaining power.
  2. Remove the handlebar end caps. Carefully use a flat head screwdriver to pry the end caps out of the handlebar ends. Store the end caps for future use or recycle according to local rules.

  3. Install the Handlebar Mitts.
    1. Unzip the Handlebar Mitt and detach the velcro strip, then slide the Handlebar Mitt over the grip and handlebar controls. Ensure the reflective side is at the handlebar end.

    2. Close the zipper, then close the velcro around the handlebar, and back onto the mitt. Make sure no cables are pinched or bent as they exit the openings.
  4. Install the new locking handlebar end caps that came with your Handlebar Mitts. Refer to the correct illustration below depending on your bike model.
    • To install on all RadRunner and RadRunner Plus models, insert the end cap through the spacer, and into the handlebar end.

    • For all other models, insert one handlebar end cap through the round opening near the reflective patch, and into the handlebar end.

  5. Hold the end cap in place and use an Allen wrench to tighten the bolt until the end cap is secure enough to keep the Handlebar Mitt attached to the handlebar and loose enough so there is some rotation to accommodate arm positions. Do not overtighten.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 with the second Handlebar Mitt on the other side of the handlebar.
