The Pace 500 ebike provides the rider with ultimate balance of comfort and power. With an upright cruiser frame and a cushy saddle, you'll have excellent riding posture and will not want to stop the fun! Luckily, a large battery with fast charge capabilities, 3-4 hours until full, means that you can get back in the saddle in no time. A powerful motor gives you the ability to get where you're going faster than you ever expected, and five levels of pedal assist plus a throttle function mean that you can expend as little or as much energy as you like whilst doing so. Get out there and feel the Pace on our most popular ebike!
Backlit LCD Display
Monitoring your speed, range, pedal assist level, and distance covered is easy with our large, easy to read LCD screen. There's even a backlight for night time riding.
Upright Cruiser Frame
The relaxed, upright cruiser frame promotes great riding posture and you get the ultimate level comfort and ride-ability when perched here, atop the extra cushy saddle installed on the Pace 500. With all this you won't want to stop cruising!
Hub Motor & Battery
A powerful rear-hub motor gives you the power to go anywhere, whilst a fast charging battery means you'll never miss out on any activity!
Pedal Assist & Throttle
Use the lower levels of pedal assist if you're looking for a workout, and use the higher levels to help you get to the top of that hill! If you're not looking to be pedaling at all then the throttle is there to power you along at up to 20mph.
I recently researched several different ebikes. Since I am not using the bike for commuting, I really don't need or want many bells and whistles, so this bike seemed to fill the bill for us. It is light for an ebike, it has plenty of speed for our needs, and will go a long way before needing a recharge. What more can I say. Great bike for our needs! Thanks.
After putting over 100 miles on my bike, I feel like now is the time to review. This bike is fantastic, and not just "for the price". It's genuinely a great e-bike. The build quality screams premium, and the performance is above expectations.
I was a little nervous about range due to the power of the motor and the smaller battery size, but there's no reason to worry. Keep this bike in Pedal Assist 3 or 4, and you'll still get 30 miles. The bike moves with ease because of the strong motor, even surprising me as it takes off from a stop. Don't worry about hitting 28 MPH or more because you definitely will.
The lighter frame makes physically moving the bike around easier. The ride feels nice and smooth, and the seat is plenty comfortable. Bumps and rough terrain melt through the bike as they reach you on the seat. I'm genuinely surprised by the comfort.
Of course, it's not ALL praise. I really don't know why there aren't integrated lights and I don't love having to outfit the bike after I buy it because there are no extras or accessories. Having a rack and fenders really is important, and I don't like spending even more money on a bike that already isn't cheap.
I also wish that there was more adjustment available through the software. I cannot change things like how quickly and aggressively the pedal assist engages, I can't change the number of pedal assist steps either. On the upside, though, I can increase the governed top speed.
While these are issues that I wish were addressed, I still give this bike 5 Stars. Regardless of my complaints, this is still a fantastic bike that will make you happy. There's no "buyer's remorse" here. At its price, I'm not sure if a better e-bike exists.
Well made configured properly excellent price point. Would definitely buy again
Pace 500 ebike
We've loved the Pace so much we bought two more. The 500 has been an excellent balance of capability, features, and price. Just got back from a bike riding vacation and can't wait for the next one. We have one each in the step over and step through models. These load on our bike rack easily and are ready to go. The removeable batteries have been a blessing letting us leave the bikes stowed away while we take the batteries to charge them. I also have to give kudos to Aventon's top notch customer service. Any time we've had a question or issue they have jumped in to answer or help us solve a problem.
