What's the Problem?
This recall affects Rad Power Bikes’s RadWagon 4 Electric Cargo Bikes (ebikes) which were sold in black, white and orange colors, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission 
"The rim strip on the tires can be misaligned, causing the tube to pop and damage the tire," CPSC said. "Additionally, the tires with a ribbed sidewall can unexpectedly go flat, risking serious injuries from loss of control and/or crash. The firm has received 137 reports of tires blowing out, deflating and separating from the sidewalls. There were eight injuries including five reports of road rash, cuts and/or bruises and one report of a broken wrist and one report of a broken arm."
The name “RADWAGON” is printed on the side of the upper downtube of the recalled ebike frame, and “RAD POWER BIKES” is printed on the lower downtube of the frame. This recall also affects spare RadWagon 4 tires sold separately under the product name Rad Power Bikes by VEE Tire Co.
The recalled Radwagons were sold online and at Rad Power Bikes stores nationwide from September 2020 through August 2022 for about $2,000 (RadWagon 4 ebike) and for about $40 (tire) sold separately.
If you purchased a RadWagon that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Rad Power Bikes to schedule a free repair to replace both tires and rim strips.
This recall began on November 3, 2022.

Lawsuit Alleges Rad Power E-Bike Injured Rider, Caused Property Damage
In April 2023, a bike rider filed a lawsuit against Rad Power Bikes in San Francisco Superior Court alleging that his Rad Runner Plus e-bike caused him to fall and sustain injuries and property damage.
Plaintiff Anthony Reyna claims in the lawsuit that he was riding the e-bike "in the manner it was intended" when "suddenly and without warning the electric bicycle came to an abrupt stop due to a default in its construction and/or manufacturing. This sudden and abrupt stop caused Reyna to fly off the e-bike onto the ground where (he) sustained serious injury to (his) person and property," according to the lawsuit.
Reyna claims he suffered wage loss and loss of property use, and earning capacity, in addition to hospital and medical expenses.
The suit brings claims of general negligence, product liability, and breach of warranty.
"The default in the electronic bicycle's design and/or manufacturing directly caused plaintiff's injuries," the complaint states.
