Radio Flyer is continuing to innovate.

The 105-year-old company behind the iconic Little Red Wagon is expanding on the successful launch of its Flyer electric bike line with the introduction of a new folding bike.

Geared toward families, the Flyer 860 Folding Cargo Bike features a space-saving design that stores easily at home and can be transported in the trunk of a car for family outings and road trips. It folds easily in two steps and includes a kickstand for added stability.

The Flyer Folding Cargo bike can travel at speeds of up to 20 mph with the throttle and can travel up to 50 miles on a single charge. The bike has a five-level pedal assist to aid in conquering hills while the onboard thumb throttle enables cruising without pedaling. An LED display controls the pedal assist level and includes a speedometer and a built-in USB charging port so that families can charge their devices on the go.

Safety features include an automatic motor cutoff switch to stop the bike when riders brake; a handlebar-mounted headlight; an integrated taillight with brake light; front and rear reflectors and reflectors on both wheels.

The bike is powered by a Flight Speed 48V, 10Ah UL 2271 tested rechargeable battery pack and comes in four colors: black, white, red, and green.

Like Radio Flyer’s other e-bikes, the Flyer Folding Cargo Bike is compatible with a range of accessories, including storage bins, child seats, and cargo carriers.

The bike begins shipping next month.
