E-bikes are a popular eco-friendly alternative to other modes of transportation, and there are plenty of electric bike models to suit the needs of just about anyone. That's regardless of whether you need a model that can handle a long commute in the city, or something a little more rugged for off-road adventures. Right now Rad Power Bikes has discounted select e-bikes by up to $250, making it a good time to have a look if you've been considering taking the leap. This offer is available now through May 10. 

If you want to skip the hassle of traffic and parking on your commute, the RadCity 5 Plus might be a good fit. It gets up to 50 miles per charge and comes in both high-step and step-through models (the latter might be a convenient option if you're in a suit or dress for work). It also has a backlit LCD display that lets you check your speed, battery life and more at a glance. And it has five levels of pedal-assist to help get you up tough inclines. Normally listing for $1,999, it's discounted to $1,849 right now, a savings of $150.

If you need something that can handle a little more of an adventure, check out the RadExpand 5. It has a step-through frame, adjustable handlebars, seven speeds, four levels of pedal-assist and rugged fat tires to help you ride steady when facing rough terrain. It has an impressive promised range, too, getting up to 45 miles per charge, and when you're done, it folds in for easy storage. Right now you can save $250 on this model when you use promo code EXPAND at checkout, which will knock the price down to $1,399.

Both models include LED headlights and taillights as well as a rear rack for transport of your cargo. However, if neither of these models work for you, be sure to check out our roundup of other e-bike deals happening now.
