Cyrusher Kommoda Vs. Radpower RadRunner Plus

Cyrusher Kommoda Vs. Radpower RadRunner Plus

Cyrusher is at the forefront of the increasing evolution of electric bikes. We’re continually designing and building better and better products to offer a great riding experience. Cyrusher recently launched a brand-new product − the Kommoda – and we’re delighted to report that after entering the market only a few months ago, the Kommoda has received an almost 100% good rating.
To help customers become familiar with all aspects of the amazing Kommoda we’ve decided to write several articles comparing our product to other similar brands. In this discussion, we’ll provide a side-by-side look at the Cyrusher Kommoda and the RadRunner Plus from Radpower. We’ll strictly follow the principle of fairness and openness. OK, let’s start with some basic information about some important features of both bikes.

Here’s additional information about how the two e-bikes stack up:
  • Large fork design:The Kommada uses a motorcycle-style front fork with excellent suspension, ensuring you can ride comfortably in rough terrain. The preload is adjustable. It can be locked when riding on flat ground and can be unlocked when riding on mountainous land.
  • Rear suspension function:The rear spring suspension design of the Kommoda makes for a stronger suspension overall and a much more satisfying riding experience. You’ll love the stability and comfort of the Kommoda. It’s like riding in the clouds, regardless of the landscape!
  • Comfortable saddle:A breathable ergonomic sports cushion seat is standard with the Kommoda, making every ride more enjoyable. Just think how comfortable you’ll be on long trips or over difficult terrain!
  • Powerful brakes:The Kommoda is an all-terrain electric bicycle with an oil brake function that allows for braking more safely and stably. Kommoda uses hydraulic brakes that are more responsive when compared to the mechanical line brakes of the RadRunner Plus. The cut-off function of Kommoda’s braking system means a higher level of safety, especially on complex surfaces and steep hills.
  • Puncture-resistant tires: While both the Kommoda and RadRunner Plus use high-quality fat tires that are able to withstand complex terrain, only the Kommoda’s tires are puncture-resistant. The advantage of this is obvious when you’re faced with sand, snow, mountains and a range of challenging landscapes.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the best aspects of the Cyrusher Kommoda. We’ll start with safety and reliability – two critical characteristics consumers want in an e-bike.
The controller and the battery constitute the essential part of any electric bicycle. The controller must process the different operations and send the manipulation commands on time. Meanwhile, the battery provides the electricity demand for the whole bike.
The Kommoda is created with a built-in battery and controller and this design better protects the controller and battery from being damaged. Imagine you’re traveling on a bumpy gravel road with lots of potholes. This is when the Kommoda shows its stuff by guarding these two essential parts to ensure safety. The novel build-in design also offers waterproof protection making a rainy ride worry free! Pictures 1 and 2 illustrate the benefits.

It should be noted that the brakes are the most important component of an e-bike! Kommoda adopts a hydraulic design while the RadRunner Plus has mechanical brakes. Both have a safety cut-off sensor but the main difference between these two designs is that they’re manufactured with different materials.
Especially on highways, hydraulic brakes can provide more control and give a smoother ride. This translates into increased safety for the rider and greater confidence when traveling a long way. The Kommoda’s hydraulic braking system with its safety cut-off function is one of the reasons for the price difference between the Cyrusher Kommoda and the Radpower RadRunner Plus.
The suspension an e-bike has is another element that can’t be ignored. The RadRunner comes with a standard front suspension. Contrast this with Kommoda’s double suspension design that used hydraulics on the front and the advantage that the Kommoda has over the RadRunner is clear. The double suspension design can absorb the discomfort caused by road bumps to a great extent.
In addition, the front suspension of the Kommoda has some more complex functions that are a breeze to use. For example, the strength of the suspension can be adjusted according to different road conditions. And, the front suspension can be turned off for riding on a flat surface. This helps you ride more effortlessly, and it will bring you a better riding experience. See picture 3.

Here are a few other reasons that the Kommoda shows superior safety and reliability as opposed to the RadRunner. Kommada's cranks are made of 170MM forged 52T alloy double-sided aluminum. Steering is convenient and effortless. The load-bearing capacity of Kommada is 30Ibs higher than that of RadRunner Plus, giving better support to both commuters and recreational users. Finally, the total weight of the Kommada is just 66 lbs (30 kgs) compared to the 77 lbs (34.9 kg) weight of the RadRunner Plus, which means it’s easier to maneuver.
The Kommoda’s safety features include a headlight, convenient to illuminate the direction of the road during night riding. As well, the Kommoda comes with its own electric horn, that can alert oncoming cars on crowded streets.
Of course, you want an e-bike that’s beautiful and appealing to your senses. The Kommoda’s LED color screen on the central control display brings a better sensory experience than the backlit LCD of RadRunner Plus. Kommoda's display gives you all the information you need via a user-friendly 3-button controller. One more function is that it's fully programmable, allowing you to set up your ride the way you want.
In this era of e-bikes, people are becoming interested in more color choices. Eye-catching colors with stylish details are fashionable. A single color of an e-bike will no longer satisfy. To meet different consumer preferences, Cyrusher has designed four gorgeous color options (orange, white, blue, and gray) for the Kommoda’s body and wheels. Bring a little brightness to city streets with one of these marvelous colors when you ride alongside the many monotonous black and white electric bicycles!
Impressively, when you buy a Kommoda electric bike, Cyrusher gives away accessories worth 245USD (including a fat tire rear rack, mountain bike fender, combination wrench and MTB air pump). You don't need extra money to purchase the necessary accessories and installation assistance, which can help you save more. This is one of the main reasons for the somewhat higher price of the Kommoda.
Below, you’ll find a summary of some of the distinctions between the Kommoda and the RadRunner Plus.
