The Aventon Aventure e-bike is equal parts explorer and commuter, with features and accessories to get any type of rider pretty much anywhere they need (or want) to go. And do it affordably.
With huge 4″ fat bike tires, a massively powerful motor, and pedal-assist up to 28mph, it should also get you there quickly and confidently. Here’s a full overview of the Aventure’s specs and features…
The Aventure gets a shapely 6061 butted aluminum frame that hides the removable 720Wh battery inside the downtube. It also runs the cables and wires internally, keeping the silhouette clean.
Up front is a suspension fork with 80mm of travel which, paired with big 26″ x 4.0″ fat bike tires, should offer plenty of comfort over any type of terrain. And that’s the idea here, to deliver all-terrain performance and capability while still being able to transport your gear (we’ll show you how in a minute).
The Aventure is Aventon’s top model, getting full coverage fenders and front and rear lights as standard equipment. It also gets a Shimano drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, lock-on grips, and a rear-mounted kickstand. It even gets alloy pedals rather than the cheap plastic ones often found on budget bikes.
It even comes with their color, backlit computer screen, which is a $99 upgrade on their other models. That gives you smartphone app connectivity to configure your settings, track your rides, and even adjust your bike’s speed limit…handy if you head to an area with stricter regulations or bans on throttles.
The Aventure uses a Class 2 e-bike setup, with a throttle that’ll move you along up to 20mph without pedaling. Or, choose from five different pedal assist levels to ride up to 28mph with the motor helping you along.
And there’s plenty of motor to help, too. The Aventure gets a 750W brushless rear hub motor, which can peak at 1130W for quick accelerations or uphill surges. That’s their biggest, most powerful motor offered on any of their bikes.
Combined with the bigger battery, they say it’s good for an average range of 45 miles, but up to 53 miles with judicious use. The included quick charger will top it off from empty in about 4-5 hours.
If you’re just using it to explore forest roads and trails, we’d say ditch the fenders. But for adventures in the city, or just getting to school or work on whatever path you feel like taking, keep them on and add the optional cargo racks.
Aventon offers separate front ($39.99) and rear ($49.99) racks that bolt directly to the frame for a solid, secure fit. This makes it easier to grab a case of your favorite bevvies on the way to your friends’, or just strap an overnight bikepacking setup to the rear and get off the grid. And if you do…
…they suggest the step-thru model. The standard model already has a low standover height, but the step-thru version makes it way easier to throw a leg thru (rather than over) a fully loaded bike.
The features and specs stay mostly the same for both versions, save for the sizes. The standard frame comes in Small, Medium, and Large sizes to fit riders from 5’1″ to 6’4″. The Step Thru frame gets two sizes, S/M and M/L to fit riders from 5’0″ to 6’2″.
Either way, you get a complete bike for $1,999 including shipping, with only minor assembly required. We’d say have it shipped to a local shop and pay them to assemble and check it over if you’re not sure how to do it or don’t have the right tools.
