Radio Flyer M880 Review: Overview
The little red wagon company is diving headlong into the e-bike game.
Radio Flyer, a company synonymous with childhood nostalgia and classic Americana, is now making affordable electric cargo bikes. In this Radio Flyer M880 review, we’ll take an in-depth look at the company’s lighter-duty electric cargo bike that doubles well as a commuter or electric fitness bike.
Radio Flyer has dubbed its M880 e-bike, the smaller of their two debut models, a “midtail” electric cargo bike, meaning it has much of the carrying capacity of a full-size cargo bike but with the wheelbase and maneuverability of a normal e-bike. It’s a nice balance of everyday utility for running errands and getting to work, combined with riding characteristics that are just flat out fun.
The M880 we tested in this review is a pre-production version of Radio Flyer’s very first e-bike, so we do have some minor notes about power delivery and some other things, but by and large we were incredibly impressed with this bike. It’s very stable, versatile and predictable. With a carrying capacity of 300 lbs, a comfortable fit and a rear rack that’s compatible with accessories and child seats, Radio Flyer has clearly spent a lot of time thinking about how this e-bike could be used to replace car trips — I personally think they nailed it.
