"The Aventon Cordoba utilizes an aluminum frame and carbon fiber fork in a modest geometry to build a bike that performs as well in an alley cat as it does on the boardwalk."

"But one of the most impressive features worth mentioning about the Aventon Pace 500 speed bike is its price. At $1,400, it’s proof that good e-bikes are no longer piling up on unattainable wish lists; they’re finally becoming a reality for the masses."

"After many miles of testing the Aventon Pace 500 it has proven to be a fun and comfortable eCruiser with high performance capabilities! This is a fairly unique eBike because it combines the relaxed cruiser ride style with up to 28 mph of pedal assist and throttle up to 20 mph. "

"This is very much a bike built for urban riding and if you’re staying in the bike lane, you likely won’t miss the front suspension too much. But that extra speed, that’s the key to turning the Aventon Pace 500 into a worth city commuter that can keep up with traffic when necessary, or blend back into the bike lane (at reasonable speeds) and do its bike thing."

"The Level is a well equipped eCommuter for zipping around town quickly! It can make commuting to work and running errands quick and fun."

"The Sinch is a lot of fun to ride with its agile handling yet stable ride feel from the 4″ wide off-road tires. It is also easy to get on and ride with its relatively low frame design and compact wheels. In addition its a comfortable bike with the built in tire suspension, comfortable upright position, and highly adjustable handlebar and seat. "

"The overall fit and finish is very much Aventon, as is the ride. It's fun and responsive. It doesn't shoot off the line like another folding fat tire eBikes I own, rather the ride matches the refined quality of the build. "

"In this price level, I have found no other bike to compete. The Pace 500 is playful and a delight to ride. In the under $1,500 price point, especially as a commuter, the Pace 500 is amazing. "

"The team was looking great and feeling fast in our Eliel skinsuits and our new Cordoba frames. Aventon is focused on making fast bikes that anyone can afford, and the new Cordobas are plenty fast, so we had no excuses."

"This is a good bike for a budget-conscious commuter or someone who is looking for a bike that’s an entry-level e-bike. It’s well-made, has good ride quality, it’s comfortable and has decent range. With standard mounts for a rack, this could be a good errand-runner."

"Aventon Pace offers a higher end motor and brake compared to it’s price point."
