From roots in the counterculture world of fixed gear bicycles to a front-runner in the electric bike market, Aventon has a reputation for quality, affordability and overall good looks. For more information on the company, including Aventon electric bike reviews, scroll to the bottom of the page.
Designed for city riding, commuting and speedy thrills, Aventon made its name in the cycling world by building beautiful (yet affordable) track and fixed-gear bicycles. But it didn’t take long for the enterprising company to burst into the e-bike market, too. Aventon’s e-bike lineup now far eclipses it’s fixie offerings, but the company’s race-inspired roots are clearly alive in every bike it makes.
Most of Aventon’s e-bikes fall into the Class 2 range, meaning they have a throttle and the motor assist maxes out at 20 mph, but the company does offer one Class 3 e-bike with pedal-assist capability up to 28 mph. There are two folding e-bikes in the lineup and each model can be ordered in a step-through design, making it easier to get on. The bikes are well specd, coming standard with disk brakes and Shimano components.
Aventon is a direct-to-consumer brand, so you can pick the best bike for you and have it shipped to your door with minimal assembly. There are also a number of Aventon dealers spread across the U.S. and Canada, giving customers the option of an in-person buying experience and the benefit of local maintenance and support should anything go wrong.
electricbikereport.com keeps tabs on the latest and greatest from Aventon, from first-glances at newly released bikes to in-depth reviews on our home roads and paths in southwest Utah. We put the bikes through their paces — testing brake strength, power and rideability, among a laundry list of other things — to paint a clear picture of what the bikes feel like in the real world.
