The name of Aventon’s newest electric bike may ring a bell for those familiar with the brand, but though it’s positioned as a mere update to an existing model, the new Aventon Sinch Step-Through promises to be something very new and very different.
In this Aventon Sinch Step-Through Review, we take a look at this freshly redesigned affordable electric folding bike and put it through a series of real-world tests; tests designed to suss out how well it climbs, handles and even how far you can ride it on a single charge.
Still built around a simple folding mechanism designed to make transportation and storage easier, the Sinch Step-Through sports a lower frame, a new look and a number of componentry changes that very much differentiates it from its high-step sibling. It’s an e-bike that boasts great handling, good value and a 500W rear hub motor that’s surprisingly peppy on steep hills.
It’s an e-bike designed to serve those who are short on space but still want a ride that’s powerful, fun and can keep pace with larger and more powerful (at least on paper) e-bikes. But how’s it stack up in the real world? We put it to the test to find out.
