More Bang For Your Buck

The price tag is where most people look first. It’s logical to want to know where your money is going. Especially when it comes to a high-priced investment such as an ebike. Although this isn’t the deciding factor, it is part of the reason to make a purchase. And the Aventure.2 is $100 less! Let’s take a look at what sets them apart.

First of all, the Aventure.2 comes with a torque sensor. The torque sensor works similarly to a standard bicycle with an augmentation. It offers riders the possibility to go longer distances through the conservation of energy. How much energy you put into your pedaling, it registers and amplifies. Not to mention the larger, more powerful 750Wh rear hub motor with a peak output of 1130Wh, while the RadRover 6 peaks at 750wh (though this is not clear this is even the actual wattage per their disclaimer on site). The Aventure.2 goes 20 mph with PAS and throttle but can be modified through the Aventon app to reach speeds up to 28 mph.

The Aventure.2 was made for adventure and its thoughtful design only proves it. Its higher carry capacity means you can take more with you wherever you go. An extra 20mm of travel in its front suspension fork gives you more control over how you want to ride. The Full Color Display provides all the vital metrics you need on and off the road, including speed, battery life, distance traveled, PAS level, and other info such CO2 reduction and trees save. Plus it also syncs to the Aventon app to share and connect with a larger riding community, making the Aventure.2 the total package.

But that’s not all. In addition, we’ve equipped this trailblazer with the all new turn signal functionality, capable of providing more protection as you hit the road or trails, allowing you to signal to motorists and other cyclists behind you. And if all this doesn’t turn your head, let’s have a closer look to see if these ebikes can stand up to a deeper level of scrutiny.

 

Electrical

An ebike is all about the electric aspects. This is, after all, what moves them besides your own physical efforts.

Aventure.2 RadRover 6 Plus Comments

Sensors

Torque

Cadence

A torque and cadence sensor function differently. A cadence sensor gives a prescribed amount of power, while the torque sensor meets riders at their own physical output, augmenting the riding experience in a more natural way.

Battery

15Ah (720WH)

589-672Wh

The Aventure.2 has a more powerful battery with enough energy to support its powerful rear hub motor.

Motor

750W (Sustained) 1130 (Peak) Brushless Rear Hub

750W Brushless Hub

While the Aventure.2 outpowers the RadRover 6 Plus at peak output, Rad also states in their specs that "the actual power-to-ground wattage is under 750W' meaning that even at a sustained output, the Aventure.2 is more powerful.

Pedal Assist

4

5

More PAS levels doesn't necessarily make one bike better than another. This assisted power gets distributed throughout the different levels of PAS and is supported by the sensor.

Charger

48V 3 amp

48V 2 amp

Simply put, a battery charger with a higher amp output will charge faster, getting you back in the saddle quicker to enjoy the ride.

Display

Full Color Display

w/ App Sync Capabilities

Backlit LCD

The Full Color Display with app syncing capabilities offers riders more than just vital data, including speed, battery life, PAS level, and distance traveled. It also shares CO2 emissions reduced, trees saved, and connects to a larger riding community.

Lights

Integrated front and rear w/ turn signal functionality

Integrated front and rear

Fully integrated lights keep you seen on and off the road, and with the Aventure.2’s all new turn signal functionality, you can signal to motorists and other cyclists where you’re going, providing more protection every time you ride.

USB Charger

Yes

Sold Separately

The Aventure.2’s concealed USB in the Full Color Display allows you to charge your phone, making it easier to sync to the Aventon app while you ride, giving you more options and more control over your experience.

New Technology Says It All

The Aventure.2 breaks out of the gate with a more powerful battery, battery charger, and motor, leaving the RadRover 6 Plus in the dust. The addition of a torque sensor makes the Aventure.2 a dynamic bike on the Aventon roster, that offers riders more on their fat tire adventures. The torque sensor augments the riders natural riding cadence providing optimal output and longer riding range that can help conserve battery life. It also has a Full Color Display that offers vital metrics and app syncing capabilities, as well as the hidden USB import that allows riders to charge their smartphones while they ride. The integrated lights and all new turn signal functionality protect riders on and off the road. At Aventon we want to make sure our riders get the most out of their riding experience, and the new technology says it all.

 

Mechanics

Beyond the electrical aspects, there is the mechanical that can ensure a more comfortable ride when you’re out in the elements. Steep hills, quick stops, and rugged terrain will surely put these ebikes to the test.

Built To Make The Good Times Last

One size certainly does not fit all. Trying to fit a bike to the inseam of a myriad of body types doesn’t seem beneficial to all riders. That’s why Aventon offers two different sizes for the standard model and the step-through, giving more opportunity for riders to find what makes them happy on and off the road. An integrated battery and a larger carrying capacity with rear rack provides protection to your hardware and the ability to take the necessary equipment you need when you take to the hills, the mountains, the trails and wherever else your wildest adventures take you.

 

A Final Word Before You Go Trail Blazing

There is no doubt in our minds that the Aventure.2 is a more powerful ebike than the RadRover 6 Plus. It’s faster, more dynamic in many aspects including a more powerful battery and motor, better suspension, larger carrying capacity, higher quality Full Color Display with app sync capabilities, the torque sensor offering further range and a more natural riding experience, and a fully integrated battery protected in a sleek frame to keep you going.

The Aventure.2 is an overall better bike with more frame options and colors to customize your experience, along with the new turn signal functionality. When it comes to quality materials and the latest in technology to keep you riding up-to-date products for the same price, you can’t beat it! Whatever keeps you riding happy, Aventon is here for it.
