Aventon Aventure.2 Review Overview

Gear up for an electrifying rendezvous with the Aventon Aventure.2, a Class 3 capable, fat tire e-bike priced at $1,999. More than just a mode of transport, this bike seamlessly blends power, style, comfort, and freedom. The Aventure.2 isn’t just a bike; it’s an invitation to embrace the thrill of exploration.

Let’s explore the distinctive features that set this e-bike apart.

Battery and Range

The heart of any electric bike lies in its battery, and the Aventure.2 has a huge one.
Sporting a robust 720Wh battery seamlessly integrated into its frame, this powerhouse sets the stage for an electrifying experience. The 48V, 3 Amp Fast Charger ensures quick replenishment, allowing you to spend more time riding and less time waiting.

But what about range? Aventon claims an impressive 60-mile range with pedal assist. Yet, the fat 4-inch-wide knobby tires, the bike’s weight, and inherent love for adventure might nibble at that range.
Nevertheless, the Aventure.2 is an excellent choice for longer rides, or if you tend to find yourself wandering off the beaten path.

Motor, Frame, Drivetrain, and Brakes (Oh My!)

Buckle up for a ride that defies convention. The Aventure.2 boasts a potent 750W (sustained) rear hub motor, ready to unleash mayhem on the streets.

With a peak power output of 1130W, the Adventure.2’s motor supercharges your ride. This immense power springs to life on steep inclines, and ensures immediate and sustained power delivery.
Whether conquering hills with ease or carrying a heavy payload, the 1130W peak wattage provides unmatched performance, making every ride effortless. And, the throttle-on-demand feature propels the bike to a swift 20 mph while engaging pedal assist catapults you up to an impressive 28 mph!

Note: The Aventure.2 comes out of the box in Class 2 mode. To switch to Class 3, you’ll need to download the Aventon App and adjust the settings to increase its top speed to 28 mph.

The torque sensor and four levels of pedal assist elevate the riding experience. It’s not just about speed; it’s about intelligent riding. The bike senses your input and provides support seamlessly, turning every pedal stroke into a symphony of power and efficiency. Whether you’re zipping through the city or tackling off-road trails, the Aventure.2’s motor is your trusty companion, always ready for the next ride.

Beyond the flashy features, the Aventure.2 boasts Aventon’s commitment to quality and comes in two frame styles – Step-Through and Step-Over – catering to many different rider sizes and preferences. The Step-Through version is like the VIP lounge of e-biking and offers easy on-and-off access. The double-butted aluminum alloy frame ensures durability without compromising on weight.

The 8-speed Shimano Altus drivetrain guarantees precise shifting and ample gear range for various terrains. And being Shimano means that almost any bike shop would be delighted to work on it!
Hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm rotors provide reliable stopping power, instilling confidence in every ride. Front and rear fenders, an integrated headlight, and rear lights that function as brake lights and turn signals showcase Aventon’s attention to detail. The inclusion of a rear cargo rack, with a 55 lb weight limit, and mounts for a front cargo rack add practicality to the Aventure.2’s adventurous spirit.

Tires and Suspension (Luxurious Utility)

Picture this: 4-inch-wide knobby tires paired with an 80 mm front suspension! The Aventure.2 is a terrain-conquering beast. These fat tires aren’t just for show; they’re the key to unlocking the bike’s versatility. Pavement, dirt roads, sandy shores – the Aventure.2 laughs in the face of predictable terrain.

While it’s not a dedicated mountain bike for technical trails, the front suspension helps to smoothen bumps, roots, and rocks, providing a comfortable ride on various surfaces. It’s the James Bond of electric bikes, always ready for the unexpected.

The Comfort of the Aventure.2

Ease into the Aventure.2’s comfy embrace. Select your frame size, and revel in the upright seating, ergonomic saddle, and riser handlebar. Aventon didn’t just build a bike; they crafted an experience where every ride feels tailor-made for your bliss.

As mentioned above, the Aventure is available in two frame sizes; the “Regular” frame would be best suited for riders between 5’3” and 5’10” tall, and the “Large” size frame would be the best bet for riders between 5’10” and 6’4” tall.

Clocking in at a substantial 77 lbs, the Aventure.2 might be a heavyweight, but let its powerful motor do all of the hard work for you. While lifting it might be a workout, once you’re cruising, all that weight fades into the background. It’s a trade-off for the power-packed performance that defines the Aventure.2.

Note: This e-bike is best suited for ground floor storage and riding directly from its storage spot. Transporting it can be challenging due to its weight, making it impractical for most bike racks. There are some fat-tire-specific bike racks out there, however.

Tech: Geek Out in Style

Geek chic takes center stage with the Aventure.2’s user interface. The 2.25″ x 1.75″ color display, perched above the stem, is your bike’s mission control. Speed, battery, pedal assist – it’s all there at a glance. The companion app adds another layer of tech-savvy convenience. Track rides, share adventures, and customize settings – it’s an e-biker’s dream come true.

The controls, including a remote unit with five buttons and a thumb throttle, provide an intuitive interface. The Aventon App is a standout feature that rockets the Aventure.2 into the realm of smart e-bikes. Integrating a USB port on the display for charging your devices on the go is a thoughtful touch because we all know how it feels to be without our devices while we’re out and about… It’s devastating.

Another integrated feature of the Aventure.2 is the addition of rear brake lights, turn signals, and a front headlamp.

Illuminate your path with the built-in front headlight, ensuring visibility on any terrain, day or night. Effortlessly engage the rear brake lights by squeezing the lever, signaling your stops, and elevating your safety with the latest addition – turn signal functionality. Communicate your direction to those trailing behind with a simple and effective signaling feature.

Assembling the Aventure.2

Aventon has simplified the assembly process, ensuring that your Aventure.2 is ready to roll with minimal hassle. The bike arrives at your doorstep, already mostly assembled.

While putting this bike together is fairly straightforward, having a friend for the heavy lifting is advisable. Riding your new e-bike for the first time with a tweaked back is just the worst!

You will need to attach the stem and handlebar, the front wheel, the seat/seatpost, and the pedals. With the included tools and detailed instructions available on the Aventon website, the Aventure.2 transforms from a few parts in a box to a fully operational masterpiece that’s ready to hit the road.

Conclusion

To sum it up, the Aventon Aventure.2 stands not just as an electric bike but as a symbol of freedom, power, and style on two wheels. Priced at a compelling $1,599, this Class 3 capable e-bike transcends traditional transportation and beckons you into a lifestyle of exploration. With its powerful motor, sleek design, and versatile features, the Aventure.2 is more than a bike; it’s an invitation to redefine the boundaries of e-biking.

So, gear up and hit the road with the Aventon Aventure.2 by your side!
