Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Rad Upgrades

Tired of spinning your wheels trying to figure out which aftermarket parts are available for your Rad bike?  Spin no more!  Here's every upgrade part available from Area 13 Ebikes that's a direct fit to your bike!  

1.  The Upgrade Kit (*With Tail Light!)

By far the most popular upgrade available, The Upgrade kit includes a new motor controller and new color display.  The combination allows you to finally unleash the full potential of the stock motor and battery.  

*The Upgrade Kit is created for specific models of Rad bikes, and that name is used for part compatibility or identification only. We are not affiliated with that company and this item is an aftermarket part. 

2.  Bafang 750 watt Motor

Think you have the most powerful 750 watt motor available from Bafang?  Think again...  Unfortunately labels don't tell the whole story.  This motor is a direct drop-in replacement for the undersized stock motor.  If you want to take full advantage of the torque the upgrade kit can add, the motor will do it!

4.  Brakes

Now that you can accelerate quicker, climb hills faster and unlock the top speed, it's time to stop!  We have 2 options for you:

Shimano Hydraulic Brakes 

These are a direct fit for some of the Rad bikes.  Note that the stock lines run inside the frame.  These can be run outside for an easy installation, or you can disconnect the lines and run through the frame.  Running inside will require re-bleeding.  It's a bit more work to install these brakes, but they offer the best stopping power for the money.  Brakes switches come standard and plug right in!

Area 13 Hydraulic Calipers  A popular upgrade for any ebike, the hydraulic calipers add significant stopping power without the hassle of a difficult installation.  Simply remove the stock calipers and replace them!  Your brake levers, steel lines, etc. all remain in place.  Super easy and quick to install.

4.  Batteries

If you want more range or power, then upgrading the battery can help!  Changing to a 52v battery will increase top speed slightly, whereas increasing amp hours (ah) will increase overall range.  We do not have a "plug and play" battery, but many have changed the stock battery connector and used one of our "triangle" shaped lithium batteries.  

5.  Spare parts

Sometimes you just need to keep things working and need some replacement parts.  All of these are compatible with the Rover bike:

Extension Cables (including 2019 tail light extension)

Pedal Assist (PAS) Sensor

Rim Strips

Fat Bike Tubes

Fat Bike Suspension Fork

6.  Tools  It's a good idea to have the right tools for the job!
