Also in this view is the Shimano 7 speed 14t to 28t cogset.
On the other side of the 350 watt geared hub motor is the 180mm disc brake rotor for the Tektro MD-280 mechanical disc brakes.
Now let’s take a look at the control center of the Pace 350.
The handlebar has a swept back cruiser style that provides a comfortable and relaxed ride feel.
On the left side of the handlebar is an ergonomic grip, front Tektro mechanical disc brake lever, thumb throttle, and control pad.
The ergonomic grips have a “wing” area to provide some wrist support and they have a lock on collar to keep them from rotating.
In this view is the thumb throttle and control pad.
The thumb throttle has a wide spectrum of assist that smoothly transitions from just a little to full power. The throttle provides assist up to 20mph and don’t need to be pedaling.
The control pad (to the right of the thumb throttle) adjusts the pedal assist levels with the up and down arrows. The on/off button (below the arrow buttons) cycles through information on the display.
Here is a closer look at the Tektro MD-M280 mechanical disc brake lever.
There are sensors in each brake lever that will stop the assist when either brake lever is engaged.
The large LCD Smart Display is mounted in the center of the handlebar and it provides information on the battery level, speed, pedal assist mode, odometer, trip distance, max speed, average speed, battery voltage, and ride time.
The display has a backlight for easily seeing it day or night.
The right side of the handlebar features an ergonomic grip, Tektro rear mechanical disc brake lever, and Shimano 7 speed shifter.
Here is closer look at the Shimano 7 speed shifter.
The front 44t chaining has double chainring guards to keep the chain on the chainring and to help with keeping your pant legs clean.
A Shimano Tourney rear derailleur shifts through the 7 speed 14t to 28t Shimano cogset.
This is a closer look at the rear Tektro MD-M280 mechanical disc brake caliper with 180mm rotor attached to the 350 watt geared rear hub motor.
And this is the Tektro HD-T285 hydraulic disc brake with 180mm rotor on the front.
Kenda Kwick Seven Sport 27.5″ x 2.2″ eBike rated tires are used front and rear. They have a smooth profile for an efficient ride and channeling to dissipate water.
The balloon cruiser style adds to the casual look of the Aventon Pace 350.
The aluminum pedals have a large platform with a grippy surface and reflectors on the front and back.
The Velo Comfort saddle has a wider profile and double springs for a comfortable ride.
The Aventon Pace 350 comes with a water bottle cage and versatile attachment system that makes it easy to mount the water bottle in various locations on the bike.
The kickstand has an adjustable height so you set the angle of the bike when it is parked.
