If you’ve been following electric bike developments for the past several years, you know that Rad Power Bikes was one of the earliest U.S. e-bike brands. Rad sells folding bikes, city commuters, cargo bikes, and adventure bikes. The RadRover is one of the most powerful and most popular models. Last year we rated the previous version, the RadRover 5, as one of the best fat tire bikes you could buy, and Rad bikes are perennial favorites in best electric bike roundups. The RadRover 6 Plus, the electric bike now on sale, incorporates updates and upgrades that add significant value, from the new 750-watt geared hub electric motor on the rear wheel hub to the automatically activated halo headlight, taillight, and brake light. The Rad’s 26-inch fat tire with integrated tire liners is puncture resistant. Fat tires help e-bikes maintain stability regardless of the surface plus they add to rider comfort on bumpy or rough roads and paths. The RadRover 6 Plus also has a front suspension fork and an ergonomic seat that add to rider enjoyment and comfort.

Rad Power Bikes’ approach to electric power is to use it for range and torque to get up steep inclines. You can mix your ride on the e-bike in three ways: Pedaling only with a 7-speed Derailleur, pedaling with five levels of battery assistance, or hand drip twist throttle control to run on battery power only. Even if you would rather do the work yourself, the extra boost from the battery can help you start moving faster from lights and stop signs or provide additional support when you’re pedaling up hills. The RadRover 6 Plus is available in high step and step-thru styles. The step-thru model is available with a charcoal or white frame and the high step version is in charcoal only. The step-thru model is rated for appropriate use by persons from 5-foot 2-inches to 6-foot 2-inches in height and the high step model from 5-foot 4-inches to 6-foot 2-inches. Both are rated to carry up to 275 pounds including the rider and any extra gear.

Don’t hesitate on this one because Rad Power Bikes doesn’t have sales all that often and a $300 savings on this latest Rad stalwart electric bike is a significant price cut. If you order before midnight on May 8, you can save $300 off Rad Power Bike’s regular $1,999 price for the RadRover 6 Plus and buy it for just $1,699. Just be sure to use the discount code SAVE300 in order to get the discount.

Burton just gave you the perfect reason to go snowboarding this weekend
We don't ever need an excuse to go snowboarding, but this one from Burton is a good one
a day for jake snowboarding burton snowboards 2023 group

Fun fact: the original moniker for snowboarding is “snurfing.” It’s a mash-up of “surfing” and “snow,” which was how the forefathers of snowboarding viewed the sport. (And honestly, snurfing is a bit more fun to say, we should have kept that name.) Jake Burton Carpenter, the founder of Burton snowboards, is considered by most the inventor of modern snowboarding, along with Tom Sims. Every year, Burton celebrates Jake with “A day for Jake,” a loosely organized worldwide day of riding. This year, A day for Jake will be this Saturday, March 11.

In 1977, in a barn in Vermont, Jake founded Burton snowboards. The original board had no bindings; it was basically a toboggan you stood up on. A rope tied to the nose of the board was all you had, and hey – best of luck in staying on top of a board without bindings. Here's why Burton snowboards was started, in Jake’s words:
I was working 12-14 hours a day and not loving it. I also (in the back of my mind) knew that surfing on snow could become a sport. So I bailed on my New York job, moved to Londonderry, Vermont and started ‘Burton Boards’ out of a barn in a house where I was the live-in caretaker and tending the two horses. By night, I bartended at the Birkenhaus Inn. By day, I built makeshift snowboard prototypes and tested them in the back hills of southern Vermont.

Improve your snowboarding edge transition with this easy-to-follow rule
Linking turns is a fundamental of learning to snowboard. This advice will help
how to set your snowboard stance snowboarder cranks turn on mountain slope

The key fundamental of snowboarding and the aim for all beginners is the hallowed ground of linked turns. Most likely, you'll start by side slipping, with a little falling leaf to move across the hill — using your edge to zig-zag down the hill without turning. Then you'll want to start working toward S turns, and this means transitioning from heel to toe edge or vice versa.

Every snowboarder you see has been in this position — yes, even that guy carving a snowboard and sending huge spins off jumps. Linking your turns together isn't easy, but without it, you'll find yourself stuck in a thigh-burning position all day. Perhaps the biggest challenge associated with linked turns is edge transition. This is the moment when you shift your weight from one edge (the uphill edge) to the other (the downhill edge) in order to initiate your snowboard turn. Doing this at the right moment, without tripping over that edge, requires practice, but we've got a gem that can help you out next time you're hitting the slopes.

Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero snowboard review: Powder lovers apply within
Snowboard review: What do we really think about the powder-plowing Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero?
burton family tree hometown hero snowboard review

Saying “fresh pow” to a snowboarder is like saying “walkies” to a dog. Ears perk up, heads tilt, eyes widen, and the mind spins into overdrive about how much fun can be had outside. For many, the lack of a proper snowboard equipped to handle deep powder detracts from heading into the snow altogether. Some take their main all-mountain ride into deep powder and hope for the best. For us, Burton snowboards rule the mountain, on and off-piste, so we were excited to give the Hometown Hero a shot at proving itself in powder. The Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero snowboard wants to help powder hounds achieve more – but is it worth the spend? Moreover, is it great in all conditions, or should you leave it on display until powder days arrive?

I recently tested the Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero in various conditions and on various terrain. Here’s my unbiased take.
The type of snowboarder I am
I am highly technical. If you want to nerd out on down-unweighted turns, I’m your guy. I plan my lines and execute them. I don’t crave speed, and I’m not reckless. I’m not always a park rider, but I’m not afraid of features. For me, side hits are far more fun to me than a terraformed park. I ride in the Pacific Northwest most days but often travel to go snowboarding.

This board was tested on Mount Hood in Oregon and at Vail Resort in Colorado.
