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.
