Comparing Cruise-ability & Comfort

When it comes to cruising, these two bikes are quite the competitors. On the same pedaling plane in some respects and then different in others. For example, both come with powerful 500W motors, integrated batteries with LG cells, cadence sensors, 5 levels of pedal assist, throttle, two different sizes, and fully integrated front and rear lights. So how do you choose?

Let’s look at the differences. The Pace 500.2 has a top speed of 28 mph while Discover 1 only has a top speed of 25 mph, plus the Pace 500.2 comes with an extra gear to help with distributing the chain tension on low grades and steep hills.

There’s also the difference in weight, with Pace 500.2 being over 10lbs lighter. And let’s not forget about the Full Color Display that offers riders real-time data, like current speed, battery life, pedal assist lever & so much more, including Aventon app syncing capabilities that allow you to map routes, hit milestones and connect with more Aventon riders.

Electrical Differences

Chat GPT says “the electrical components of an electric bike include a rechargeable battery, an electric motor, and a controller. The battery powers the motor, which provides assistance to the rider by propelling the bike forward, while the controller regulates the flow of electricity and allows the rider to adjust the level of assistance.”

We couldn't agree more. So let’s see how the electrical components of these two bikes compare in power output to keep you moving forward every time you ride.
