Aventon Sinch.2 Review Overview

If you’ve been scouring the horizon for that elusive foldable, highly portable commuter e-bike that won’t drain your pockets, your quest is over — meet the Aventon Sinch.2! Priced at an attractive $1,299, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill foldable commuter; it’s a gateway to a world where each ride is an experience.

The Sinch.2 cruises as a Class 2 e-bike, boasting pedal assist and throttle options. If you prefer, the Sinch.2 can roll without the throttle — simply unplug and remove it. This feature caters to riding in areas where throttles are prohibited. Pretty friggin’ awesome if you ask us!

This e-bike is a testament to Aventon’s commitment to seamlessly blending style, power, and practicality, whether you’re navigating bustling city streets or conquering off-road trails.

Picture this: a bike that folds effortlessly, transforming from a sleek road companion to a compact marvel you can stow away like a secret weapon. The Sinch.2 is not just accepting challenges; it’s welcoming them with a bold attitude that’s not just infectious but downright exhilarating. The ease with which it folds and unfolds shows its versatility, turning storage dilemmas into non-issues.

The Sinch.2 isn’t exclusive — it’s ready to roll with riders of all shapes and sizes. With its step-through frame accommodating heights from 4’11″ to 6’2″, it invites everyone to join the e-bike revolution!

Built With Safety and Durability in Mind

Safety is non-negotiable, and the Sinch.2 doesn’t cut corners. Certified to UL 2849 standards, this e-bike boasts a single-butted aluminum alloy frame that’s not just robust; it’s a partner ensuring a secure, comfortable ride.

Capable of a total payload of 300 pounds, the Sinch.2 weighs in at 68 lbs; it strikes the perfect balance between sturdiness and maneuverability. Granted, 68 lbs is not considered “light,” but with its removable battery, you can shave some weight to help lug it around if needed.

Aventon’s commitment to durability shines through with the Sinch.2 being crafted to meet the IPX4 water-resistant standard. In practical terms, this means your bike can confidently navigate light rain. It’s designed to resist water splashes from any direction, ensuring that the e-bike remains unfazed by spray from wet roads or raindrops.

However, a gentle reminder: while the Sinch.2 can handle light rain, it’s not built for prolonged exposure to heavy rain, submersion, or pressurized sprays. Steering clear of pressure washers or sprayers during cleaning is advised to maintain the e-bike’s longevity and performance.

Power Play: The Heart of the Sinch.2

Now, let’s talk power — a feature that makes the Sinch.2 a standout performer. With a 750W (peak) rear-hub motor and a 48V, 14Ah (672Wh) LG cell battery, this e-bike offers more than just a jolt. It provides sustained power, a top speed of 20 MPH, and an impressive range of up to 55 miles. Say goodbye to range anxiety with the Sinch.2, your adventures just got longer, bolder, and more thrilling.

Control in Your Hands: Throttle, Pedal Assist, and Torque Sensor

Feel the power at your fingertips with the throttle on demand and four levels of pedal assist — eco, tour, sport, and turbo. The Sinch.2’s torque sensor is one with its rider, synchronizing with your pedal power to deliver a ride that feels as natural as the air you breathe. It’s not just a means of transportation; it’s an experience that keeps you in control.

Off-Road Bliss: Tires & Front Suspension

Lean in because there’s someone we want you to meet — the Sinch.2’s 4” fat tires! These aren’t just tires; they’re the keys to unlocking off-road shenanigans, turning each ride into an adventure. Paired with the front suspension, offering up to 45mm of travel, it’s your ultimate wingman, smoothing out bumps and ensuring your ride is as smooth as butter.

Now, a quick disclaimer: the Sinch.2 is not an eMTB. It won’t conquer steep mountainous terrain or engage in 20-mile-long uphill street battles. Yet, if you find yourself on a semi-flat trail off the beaten path, go ahead and see where it takes you.

Tech-Infused Joy: LCD Display and Smart Integration

Meet the Sinch.2’s tech-savvy heart — the backlit LCD display. It’s not just a fancy addition; it’s your cockpit for real-time info — speed, battery life, and pedal assist levels. It moonlights as a turn signal controller, ensuring your maneuvers are clear to other road users. With a USB port to charge your smartphone, syncing up with the Aventon app opens the door to a community of riders ready to share triumphs and experiences.

Fenders, Rear Rack, Lights Galore

Now, let’s talk accessories because who doesn’t love a bit of flair?

Fenders? Check. Standard issue to shield you from mud and water spray.

A rear rack? Absolutely. Hauling gear becomes a breeze.

Lights? Of course! The Sinch.2 isn’t just for daytime quests; it loves the nightlife too. Front and rear lights with turn signal functionality make you the road’s head-turner, ensuring you’re seen and capturing attention day or night.

Compact Convenience: Folding, Storing, and Winning at Life

And when the adventure’s done? Fold it, store it, and revel in its compact portability. The Sinch.2 transforms any storage woe into a non-issue, making it ideal for city dwellers, camping trips, or tossing it in the trunk for impromptu road trips. Convenience is the name of the game, and the Sinch.2 is winning.

Assembling the Aventon Sinch.2

Assembling the Aventon Sinch.2 couldn’t be simpler – unbox, unfold, adjust saddle and handlebar height, re-position the controller, and you’re ready to ride! The journey from anticipation to exhilaration is as seamless as it gets. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or new to e-bikes, the Sinch.2’s hassle-free assembly sets the stage for the open road that beckons you.

Things to Consider

While the Aventon Sinch.2 boasts several commendable features, you should consider some aspects that might make it less appealing.

  • Weighing in at 68 lbs, the Sinch.2 is notably heavy for a folding bike, posing challenges for those who need to lift or carry it frequently.
  • Some have reported a crowded right side of the handlebars, which could affect the overall comfort of the ride.
  • The replacement of the Shimano kit with a “basic Aventon branded” shifter and derailleur on the Sinch.2 might be a drawback for riders who value specific components.
  • It’s worth noting that the Sinch.2 lacks Class 3 capability, a feature available in other Aventon models, potentially limiting its speed capabilities.
  • Lastly, some users have found the provided Velo saddle uncomfortable, leading them to consider swapping it out for a more tailored option.

While these factors may impact the bike’s appeal for certain riders, it’s essential to weigh them against the Sinch.2’s strengths and intended use cases.

Final Thoughts on the Sinch.2

If you’re ready to swap the mundane for the extraordinary, the Aventon Sinch.2 is revved up and ready to roll. From its sassy design to its powerful performance, the Sinch.2 is your ticket to a realm where every ride is an escapade and every commute is an adventure waiting to unfold.

So, unfold those possibilities, hit the road with a grin, and let the Sinch.2 show you what true e-biking freedom feels like — because life’s too short for mundane rides! With the Aventon Sinch.2, every ride is an invitation to unleash your inner adventurer and redefine how you experience the world on two wheels.
