The benefits of riding an electric bike are many, enabling environmentally friendly work and reducing emissions. Moreover, with the help of pedal assist and accelerator functions, electric bicycles can also extend the range of cycling, and can also allow us to find happiness while exercising during riding. We need to consider our own needs when purchasing electric bicycles, whether it is for convenience, travel, or mountain climbing.
Let's take a look at what to look for when buying an electric bike:
With a wide range of e-bikes to suit your riding style, and different versions of the same model to suit any budget, you can find an e-bike that suits you.
2. Know the 3 categories of electric bicycles
Class 1 e-bikes for e-bikes, most are good places for beginners to start their e-bike journey. Class 1 electric bikes are affordable, generally acceptable at most low scores, and easy to navigate on city streets as well as bike streets. Class 2 e-bikes in e-bikes are generally allowed in the same places as Class 1 e-bikes because both classes have a top speed of 20 mph. We are looking at a class 3 e-bike, a class 3 e-bike is a faster and more powerful e-bike compared to a class 1 e-bike and a class 2 e-bike. Suitable for riders moving in stop-and-go traffic and climbing steep hills with ease. While Class 3 e-bikes are more attractive, they are more regulated in some cities and on most bike lanes.
3. Battery type
At the heart of your Aventon ebike are the lithium-ion battery and rear hub motor. The battery capacity and motor power determine metrics like range and top speed. Aventon bikes use three motor sizes: 350W, 500W, and 700W and have a maximum range of between 35 to 45 miles. Choose a larger motor if you expect to ride long distances, climb hills, or use throttle mode frequently. Smaller motors are perfect for quick city errands and low levels of pedal assist. Aventon battery charging is quick and simple across all models.
4. Pedal Assist and Throttle
Electric bikes are powered in two ways: pedal assist or throttle mode. Pedal assist is the most common, and many e-bikes also feature a throttle for fast, pedal-free cruising. Luckily, all Aventon electric bikes come with pedal assist and throttle modes!
When you're finding the e-bike of your dreams, one thing to consider is its range. The range of an e-bike is the maximum distance the battery can travel on a full charge. Also keep in mind the type of battery that comes with your e-bike as it plays a major role in the e-bike's performance and range. If you plan on using more motor power than pedaling, you'll use up the battery more quickly. Make sure the type of e-bike you are buying can cover the ground. The average range on most e-bikes is between 20 and 50 miles. Range may vary from person to person depending on body weight, assist level, battery capacity, average speed and route. Aventon's e-bikes can go 40 to 60 miles on a single charge.
6. Aventon Special Features
Accessories like fenders, a rear rack, and integrated lights can boost your bike’s utility and suspension can take its performance to the next level. Fenders and rear racks are compatible with most Aventon ebikes and come included on some models. The urban and cruiser models have rigid forks while the commuter and all-terrain bikes have front suspension. For space-saving cyclists out there, the Aventon Sinch folds down for easy transport and storage.
One of the most important components of an e-bike is the motor. Aventon e-bikes feature a brushless rear hub motor that helps propel your natural momentum. Hub drive motor: This is a great, more affordable option for anyone buying their first e-bike. Their power delivery is similar to that of mid-drive motors, except that the power goes directly to the rear wheels, pushing the rider with the feeling of being pushed forward.
When looking for an electric bicycle, many people will pay attention to: "How fast can the electric bicycle run?" They all hope that the speed and the length of the driving distance of the electric bicycle can be ridden to the length they want to ride, E-bikes, which can generally reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour, are more convenient, allowing riders to run errands, commute to work, and so on to get where they want to go.
9. Type of sensor
There are two types of sensors on e-bikes: cadence sensors or torque sensors. Cadence Sensor: The cadence sensor activates when the rider starts pedaling. It then sends a prescribed amount of power to the motor, propelling the rider's momentum forward until maximum output is reached. Torque Sensor: More intuitive than the Cadence Sensor, the Torque Sensor recognizes how much pressure the rider is putting on the pedals and matches it, creating a smoother, more natural ride. This ultimately saves battery life and increases riding range.
Most e-bike frames are made of aluminum alloy, a lightweight and durable material, although a growing number of frame options are available, including steel and carbon fiber. Frame material, design, and the size of the motor and battery play a huge role in the overall weight of a bike and how it rides. Materials make a difference. So if you're having trouble choosing between two comparable bikes, choose the model that better suits your use case. When you test ride it, you recognize the bike that feels right. All Aventon e-bikes are made of aluminum alloy. In addition to the material, there is also a traditional striding frame. This is different from the traditional stride frame, which does not have a cross bar, which can conveniently allow more riders to find fun in electric travel.
Aventon Bikes for Commuting and Cruising
Ride through the urban jungle in style, all without breaking a sweat. Whether you’re riding to work, school, or running an errand, Aventon offers several city models to fit your preferences and needs.
The Level.2 is an updated version of our flagship commuter e-bike that is as innovative as it is efficient. The fully integrated battery, four integrated lights and front suspension fork provide ultimate comfort and safety no matter the terrain or time of day. Equipped with pre-loaded fenders and a rear luggage rack, the Level.2 can transport everything from work essentials to picnic items without getting in the way of the elements. Aventon's first electric bike with a torque sensor means a more natural riding experience. Use Level.2 to intuitively augment your power to take control of your ride, or just use your power against electric and pedals.
The Pace, Aventon's first e-bike designed for city cruising, is now available in two versions: the Pace 350 and its upgrade, the Pace 500. Weighing around 50 lbs, the moderate weight and 2.2-inch tires are great for comfortable, fast city riding. Rigid frame compatible with fenders and rear racks, also available in stepped geometry. The higher-spec Pace 500 features hydraulic disc brakes and a more powerful 500W electric motor, capable of a top speed of 28mph and a range of 40 miles on a single charge. The Pace is a great choice for commuters and casual riders who want a more comfortable setup.
Aventon Pace 350 vs 500
The main question in choosing between the Aventon Pace 300 and the Pace 500 is whether you need all the power of the Pace 500. The two models are largely similar, but the Pace 500 has a more powerful motor and battery than the Pace 300. If you're a dedicated bike commuter and ride to work a lot, you might opt for the extra power of the Pace 500.
Aventon Bikes for Off Road Riding
Off-road ebikes are the perfect machines for adrenaline junkies or mountain bikers making the switch to ebike riding. The front suspension and fat 4” tires allow you to tackle any terrain and the larger motor will get you up steep climbs.
This fat tire electric bike is designed to extend your off-road journey thanks to the large 750W motor and 45 mile range. It ships as a Class 2 ebike but can be configured as Class 3. Enjoy plenty of traction and cushion provided by the 4” fat tires and front suspension fork. Ride up to 28 mph in pedal assist mode and if you plan to ride routes with chunky gravel or loose dirt, this brawny bike with hydraulic disc brakes will handle anything you throw at it.
Aventon Level vs Aventure
The Aventon Level is more of a versatile electric commuter bike that can handle some rougher terrain, while the Aventon Aventure is purpose-built for off-road riding. The bigger tires and more capable suspension forks of the Aventure excel on dirt, but they may feel cumbersome if all you ride is pavement. Long story short, if you ride mostly on pavement go with the Level, and if you frequently go off-road have a look at the Aventure.
For the choice of what look, it all depends on your preferences.
