The rise of e-bike ridership has brought with it a rise in dangerous and even fatal bike accidents, exploding lithium batteries and construction woes. Now, Rad Power Bikes —a brand that's been navigating many of these issues— is aiming to set a new standard in e-bike safety with the launch of four new bike models, each equipped with its proprietary “Safe Shield Battery'.'

The Safe Shield Battery is UL Certified to UL 2271 and sports a heat-absorbing resin that protects against corrosion and overheating. This resin coats the entire battery cell and its thermal-resistant resin would stop a thermal event, such as battery overheating or a fire, from spreading.
