Aventon boasts a robust collection of capable e-bikes designed to tackle everything from chunky singletrack to bustling urban commutes.
The company is known for its sleek designs and integrated components that take a good deal of bulkiness out of e-bikes, while still delivering on power and efficiency.
Across the Aventon lineup, which includes fat-tire models and even folding e-bikes, none has been more strategically tailored for daily commuting than its flagship line of Level bikes.
Aventon’s Level lineup has already been a popular option for urban riders, especially those who enjoy weekend adventuring. It comes with a suspension fork up front that gives it a little more smoothness over varied terrain and improves comfort for longer rides.
Aventon’s newest addition, the Level 2, brings a variety of improvements that the brand hopes will make the bike an even stronger, and longer performer.
Aventon Level 2 upgrades
The Level 2 brings a host of upgrades to the popular Level commuting platform that increases range, safety, and fun, whether pedaling into work or off the beaten path. Aventon bills the new bike as the tool to turn ordinary commutes into joy rides.
The Level 2 keeps popular features from the first Level, including a suspension fork to cushion the ride and a rear rack perfect for hauling daily essentials or even bulkier items like groceries.
It departs from its predecessor with several tech and performance improvements that gives this version the opportunity to be more capable across a variety of terrain.
The Level 2 includes a first-for-Aventon torque sensor for smoother power delivery, along with all-new integrated taillights, a headlight, and a full-color LCD display.
The lights make urban riding, even at night, safer, while the LCD screen makes monitoring speed and battery charge a breeze. It also has app connectivity that makes it easier to monitor electronic components without having to stand directly over the screen.
These features bring the model more in line with Aventon’s recently revamped Pace Next-Gen cruisers, which received similar upgrades earlier this year. But with the added comfort of the front fork, The Level 2 promises to be a bit more versatile.
Like the Pace lineup, the Level 2 stable includes both step-through and step-over models for a more tailored fit for those who don’t want to step over a high top tube every time they get on or off the bike. The Level 2 also comes in four color options, including Polar, Himalayan, Glacier, and Clay.
Aventon Level 2 technical specs
The Level 2 comes equipped with a 48v, 500w brushless hub motor and an integrated battery that can push the bike up to 28 mph for a distance of about 60 miles. The previous Level line had an average distance of 40 miles per charge.
Aside from the motor and battery, the bike is powered by an eight-speed drivetrain with an assistance throttle and multiple pedal-assist modes. It also includes hydraulic disc brakes for confident braking whether wet or dry.
The Level 2 runs on 27.5 x 2.1 tires with front and rear fenders to keep riders clean. It weighs in at 54 lbs., and at a price point of MSRP of $1,949, it’s a budget-friendly option that still can go the distance.
