As beautifully elegant as it is rugged the Aventure is the most powerful and versatile ebike we’ve ever designed. With a front suspension fork, fat tires, and exceptional handling you can be sure of the most comfortable ride across whichever terrain your spirit chooses, whilst built in fenders and integrated front and rear lights ensure that wherever you go you’ll be both seen by others and protected from the terrain beneath you.
While the Aventure ships as a class II ebike, it can be configured into a class III with speeds of up to 28 MPH with its high capacity battery and powerful rear hub motor. Topping it off with its color display that syncs to the new Aventon app means that this bike is first in its class and packed full of the technological innovation required for it to stand up to the test of time.
Backlit LCD Display
An intuitive, color display shows you your speed, battery charge, pedal assist level, distance traveled and more. Above that it also allows you to control your ebike's class rating, integrated lights, and more! Sync to the Aventon app to share your trips with your friends! Even plug in your smartphone via USB.
No terrain is too rugged for the Aventure, and a suspension fork with a bump absorbing 80mm of travel means that you'll conquer all with best in class comfort!
Take your ebike anywhere safe in the knowledge that you're protected from the elements underneath your tires with built in fenders.
Integrated lights mean that you never have to worry about not being seen on the road, but, most importantly, being integrated into your ebike means that you never need to sweat about your batteries running out on you.
4" fat tires provide you with the comfort, stability, and confidence to take your Aventure wherever you want to adventure.
Hub Motor & Battery
Our powerful 750W motor is coupled with our 720Wh high capacity integrated battery! This combination will take you further, and have you tackling hills and terrain you'd only ever dreamed of!
Pedal Assist & Throttle
Get where you want to go with throttle on demand and pedal assist functions! The throttle is there for when you need it, or when you just want to enjoy the scenery up to 20 MPH, whilst the five levels of pedal assist allow you to manage your energy expenditure so you can always make it to the top! Top speed can be adjusted to go up to 28 MPH on pedal assist.

This bike has lots of power. The Android App was flaky at first, but the updated version works great. The tires are really nice and somewhat quiet. They are great on the street and on gravel. I inflate to 20 lbs. The seat is great, even better than my Cloud 9 and less flimsy. I will change out my other e-bikes to this seat. There is plenty of power - 20 mph on throttle only (regulated to 20 mph, but has lots more power). It will go 52 kmph (32.5 mph) with easy pedalling (motor stops at this speed). I can easily get 45 miles on a battery charge. There is no bell, but I added one. Brakes are very good and smooth. Seat post is an odd size (approximately 30.4 mm) need an adapter to add my preferred SR SUNTOUR Sp12-ncx Seat Post. Handlebars are nice and wide with really nice and soft grips. Bike control is easy and intuitive to use. Color display is nice and shows exact percent (1% through 100%) of remaining battery charge. Color display is a little washed out in direct sunlight, but readable. The bike manual references the BC280 display manual for more information, but that manual is apparently unavailable at this time. Front absorbing shocks are nice and provide a nice ride. Ride position handle bar is adjustable from upright (which I like) to more forward leaning). Gear shifter is great, easy to use, quick and smooth. I bought the rear rack - very easy to install.
Speedometer/odometer on the bike display does not work properly - working with Tech Support for a fix.
I bought mine and it shipped the next day, took about 4 days via UPS to get from Cali to Texas which is not bad IMO. It was really easy to assemble and only took about 30 minutes max. The only issue I had was that the front brakes were constantly slightly rubbing on the discs making an annoying sound. I didn’t want to ruin the pads so I decided to easily adjust them as stated below.
I took a business card and folded it in half, removed the calipers (2 bolts), put folded card over disc then reinstalled caliper over disc/card and reinstall bolts but only snug them. Next, pump brake lever a couple times to center the caliper pads, then tighten caliper bolts. Finally, hold the card to the disc and roll the bike and the card will remove itself. After I did that my pads were perfectly centered and made no rubbing sounds. I did this for the front and back and it completely fixed the rubbing and they are perfectly centered on the discs now. There are how too videos on this for other bikes if you want to search. I do not consider this a problem with the bike, it’s more of a common maintenance with any mass produced bike.
It’s not mentioned in the instructions but it’s a good idea to “bed” the brakes in. Ride up to 10mph then apply front brakes only to slow you too about 3mph (do not completely stop), then repeat back to 10mph and apply front brakes only slowing down to about 3mph. Do this 10 times. Next do the same to 15mph then only apply front brakes to slow to 3mph, repeat this 10 times. Next do the same for the rear brakes only. This procedure will properly “bed” your brake pads to the disc.
The manual gives you instructions for balancing the battery on page 19 of the online owners manual, make sure you follow this advice.
I have only had this bike for a short while but it has given me a lot of joy riding it. This is so much fun it’s hard to express it with words. I highly recommend this ebike.
Just did my maiden trip. 28 miles at an average of 21 mph. Top speed over 34 mph. The ad says pedal assists you to 28 mph, but this bike consistently got me to 31/32 mph with ease! I am in love!!!
I pushed this bike and it delivered. Mind you, I'm a heavy set 52 year-old man, so if I can do this pretty much anyone can. Ran out of battery at the very last hill so I took a break, put it in the lowest gear, and peddled - albeit slowly - up to the top. Honestly, not much harder than peddling my traditional bike (I hate that hill!).
Top of my shopping list is always value. I don't like being asked by a dealer (how much do you want to spend) because the moment you answer that question that's how much they will try to sell you.
We already have two HaiBike e-Bikes and enjoy them quite a bit. I've always wanted an optional Throttle model though and I've had my eyes out for one for years. Leading the way on my list were QuietKat bikes, but they cost a lot and (in CA anyway) you can't find one to go take a test drive. The LBS that sold me my current bikes is quite snobbish against Hub Motor bikes and really hammers that Mid Drive bikes are superior and Hub Drive bikes are prone to failure and an inferior design.
Now that I have both, I can make a fair unbiased comparison. I would definitely agree that a mid drive bike and specifically one with a Torque Sensor makes for a much more natural riding experience. This Hub Motor bike tends to drive the motor all or nothing and the PAS levels 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 just tell the controller at what speed to stop sending power to the motor as soon as it see you spin the pedals. So, if (for instance) you are following someone and they are travelling at 12 MPH, I can adjust to PAS2 which goes 10MPH and then I have to pedal that last 2 MPH...if/when I fall below 10 MPH the motor will kick in and push, but above 10MPH I get no assist. It means if you want to go 12MPH you will be speeding up/down and surging a lot and it takes some getting used to. I'm hoping I can fine tune/adjust the PAS settings. I'd like to see PAS 1, 2, 3, 4 start at 5mph, make smaller increments and leave 5 at max. It is true that a mid drive bike and specifically one that has a torque sensor will feel much more natural and it's more like someone is gently pushing you as you pedal along. pedal harder they push with you harder, pedal soft and they push soft. On this bike, if you set it to PAS2 and try to pedal at 8MPH, as soon as you spin the pedals that motor pushes you up to 10 MPH.
Another small niggle is the brakes do feel a bit gritty. I think it's the pad itself. Braking sounds faintly like rubbing fine sandpaper on steel. It's not bad and they work fantastic with no chatter. My other ebikes are completely silent though, much more like your car brakes.
Now that I've said all of the negative. Here's the real headline. Aventon clearly gives you the most for your hard earned dollar. This bike has a big 750Watt motor, it has Hydraulic (not cable) disk brakes (which mean stopping with two fingers is easy even on downhills), the shifter is a trigger shifter and not the over-the-top thumb shifter (that's a big bonus because you don't have to move your R hand off the grips to shift). It has a front suspension. It has a bigger battery and they have incorporated it into the frame so the road dirt and grime just wipes off clean as a whistle. As much wiring as possible is routed cleanly through the frame to keep it safe. You get a headlight and tail light already wired up to your battery (On my other bikes I had to pay extra and add a headlight and my tail light is a clip on that I have to recharge). Very nice color display, although I disagree on the silly "trees saved: display, that's just a fluffy number that means nothing and that valuable real estate could be used to show me something more useful like total Odometer miles (not trip miles) or AmpHours used or Avg Miles per battery charge.
I was reluctant about Fat Tire bikes when I first saw them. But I have to admit, if you want to stay with a simpler rigid (no rear suspension) frame, those fat tires really soak up the bumps!
All of this adds up to a lot of things that I went out and either spent money upgrading on my other bikes or I had to spend a LOT more money to find. There are lower cost bikes I've seen, but you won't get those features on them so from what I can tell from doing a lot of shopping around, Aventon gives us (by far) the most value for my $$. And yes, I suppose I could go out and get a Mid Drive QuietKat, but that bike costs way over $5000 and I have to ask myself if I'm going to get that extra $3000 out of it? Meanwhile, I have a bike with a thumb throttle and for those times when I'm running low on the leg battery and just want to sit back...that throttle kicks in and it goes like a dream. It's just as much fun as those small 50cc bikes we had as kids. It's a featherweight dual sport except I don't have to pay DMV fees and it's just plain fun to buzz around. When I was a little kid we dreamed of these things...now that I have gray hair, I can finally realize those dreams and I feel like a kid all over again and thanks to Aventon I didn't break the bank.
OH! and LOVE the step through models! I'm putting a rear rack on and it's impossible to swing a leg over a full trunk bag!
I had originally ordered the Level Commuter bike then a day later, the Aventure fat tire bike became available! What timing! Grant it, I've only had the bike one day, but I'm certain I made the right choice for my new e-bike. There were a number of factors that lead me to purchase from Aventon, one of which is that Aventon is adding brick & mortar dealers, which goes a long way if you need warranty service on your e-bike. Integrated battery, 750-Watt motor, hydraulic brakes, trigger shifters and color LCD display tie this bike all together into one seemingly durable road warrior of an e-bike. My advice? Just buy it!
