Aventon Aventure Review: Takeaway

If there’s one word that can be used to sum up the Aventon Aventure electric bike, it’s versatility. With 4-inch wide tires that offer plenty of traction, riders can enjoy a smooth ride across a number of terrains — whether commuting to the city, enjoying a ride along the beach, or hitting the off-road trails. 

The Aventure’s versatility also extends to its structure, as it’s available in multiple sizes to suit both tall and short riders and comes with the option of a step-through frame. 

Both teens and adults who are looking for a trusty daily ride that can also take them beyond the road for some more thrilling e-bike adventures will appreciate the Aventon Aventure.

About the Aventure

The Aventure is available in four colors, two different frame types, and five sizes, allowing riders of all statures to enjoy a comfortable ride. The standard frame comes in small (5’1″–5’9), medium (5’7″–5’11”), and large (5’11″–6’4″), while the convenient step-through frame comes in small/medium (4’11″–5’7″) and medium/large (5’8″–6’2″). 

It has a brushless rear hub motor with five pedal assist levels, along with a throttle that’s capable of moving the bike up to 20 mph — even when you’re not pedaling. In terms of safety, additional features such as water resistance, integrated front and rear lights, sturdy metal fenders, and an upright seating position with high visibility all provide extra peace of mind. 

The model’s impressively large and full-color LCD display features key information such as your speed, battery charge percentage, power assist level, and light status. Having this data easily accessible on your ride gives you full control over your experience.

Reasons to Buy

The Aventure comes as a Class II e-bike. However, its high-capacity battery and powerful rear hub motor can quickly and easily be configured into a class III e-bike, allowing it to hit 28 mph with pedal assist. This flexibility in power and throttle modes can suit a wider range of rider expertise and preferences — including athletic cyclists who like to push their limits and hobbyists who like to tackle steep trails with extra assistance.

Additionally, the e-bike’s wider body gives it a more powerful and durable appearance while concealing the cables and battery neatly within the aluminum frame. This eliminates messy tangles that could trip you up. Although the battery is secured into the frame, it can easily be removed for charging or security purposes. 

One of the Aventure’s other biggest selling points is its price. Despite its cost of $1,999, it’s still up to $1,000 cheaper than other fat tire e-bikes. With advanced technological features such as a large, color LCD controller and associated smartphone app, the Aventure offers great value for the money, even when compared to cheaper, competing models.

Things to Consider

The model’s aluminum frame and spring suspension fork allow for a manageable ride along bumpy surfaces. However, for those looking for an electric bike for more intense off-road use, you’ll want a model with a higher-performance suspension fork. 

Buyers should also keep in mind that the Aventure’s durable, yet bulky, nature means it’s not the lightest e-bike on the market. Weighing in at 73 pounds, smaller riders may find the model a little heavy to maneuver. 

Finally — and like many e-bikes featuring a rear hub motor — the Aventure does have a noticeable turbo lag effect when applying extra pedal input. It’s similar to a stop-start vehicle system that turns off an engine at red lights.

Power
4.5/5

The 750-watt rear-hub motor is a big beast, and on pedal assist (in Class III mode), it’ll happily cruise at 28 mph on pedal assist. A lot of the power will be lost through the fat, 4-inch tires that won’t allow for high-speed downhill riding. Weight is an issue, too, with the 750Wh battery making this a bit of a tank as electric bikes go. The large frame and 73 lbs riderless weight will reduce overall efficiency as well.

 

Range
4/5

On paper, the 750Wh battery should give a great range. As we’ve touched on above though, a lot of the power is lost to weight going uphill and the friction of the large tires on the flat and downhill. Ridden on flat, smooth surfaces, the Aventon Aventure will give you good range. However, compared to a Cannondale or Specialized e-bike with an equivalent battery size, this is a lot less efficient.

Comfort
4.5/5
4.5

With its large frame, spring suspension fork, and fat 4-inch tires, this e-bike offers a very comfortable ride and should help you feel more confident on the road. The rider sits in an upright, city bike position, making it a great option for road riding. However, it could be a little less comfortable for big off-road sections.

 

Durability
1.5/5
1.5

The heavyweight, solid build of the Aventon Aventure should require no more maintenance than other electric bikes in this segment. That means that with regular servicing, this e-bike can provide many thousands of miles without requiring major repairs. Do remember that you’ll need a new chain and brake pads every 500-700 miles. This is fairly standard for all bikes.

 

Style
4/5
4

Big and beefy are the first thoughts you have when looking at this machine. Big can be beautiful, however, and for someone who may want more visibility on the road, this offers that by the truckload. You’ll feel seen with its 4-inch tires and big, bulky looks, and that bestows a certain level of confidence upon the rider.
