5 Best Selling Aventon E-Bikes in 2023

5 best selling aventon e-bikes
  • Aventon is an stablished US e-bike brand, known for quality and affordability. Constantly improving based on feedback.
  • Torque sensors added to new Aventon bikes, enhancing efficiency and natural riding experience.
  • Aventon lineup: Soltera – affordable commuter. Abound – cargo bike. Aventure.2 – fat tire fun. Level.2 – commuter with torque sensor. Sinch.2 – folding e-bike with range and ride improvements.

Well-established as a high-quality yet budget-friendly American e-bike brand, Aventon keeps making good bikes even better. I’ve reviewed several of their bikes over the past couple of years. Generally, the only real nit I could pick was that their bikes only came with a cadence sensor, not a torque sensor. 

The former means that the motor gives you the full speed and power of whatever mode you are in, no matter how hard you pedal. e.g. if you are simply moving the pedals in Eco mode, you’ll get up to 12 mph quite quickly. It can be a bit surprising, and it can use the battery more quickly. That’s not a deal-breaker by any means, especially in the sub-$2000 range. 

Aventon listened to my reviews, and for the new generation of each bike, they’ve added a torque sensor. This means that the harder you push on the pedals at a given mode, the more it will give back to you as a percentage of your input. It feels very natural and tends to use the battery far more efficiently.

If you’re looking for an electric bike that combines affordability, functionality, and style? Look no further than Aventon’s best-selling lineup.


SOLTERA

For commuters, including college students, the Aventon Soltera is a very inexpensive e-bike. It has a 7-speed drivetrain, a 350W brushless rear hub motor, a 360Wh battery and integrated lighting. It’s very simple, with thin tires, optional racks, a 20 mph top speed and a claimed range of 41 miles (claimed ranges are assuming ideal conditions, flat ground, eco mode with a 110 lb rider, so take these with a grain of salt). 

It weighs in at a mere 43 lbs (most e-bikes start at around 50 lbs), has an aluminum frame that you can get in either a step-over or step-through frame design, and comes in regular (5’3”-5’10”) and large (5’10” to 6’4”) sizes. It can handle a total payload of 300 lbs (rider plus cargo).

It bears mentioning that this is the only bike on the list that is still in its first generation, so it only has a cadence sensor, not a torque sensor. Expect a second generation of this popular e-bike some time in the future.

ABOUND

Aventon’s first stab at a cargo bike, the Aventon Abound, looks pretty great. It’s a compact cargo bike, with 20” wheels, a payload capacity of 440 lbs, a 750W motor and a range of 50 miles, it’s a very capable grocery-getter or a great way to take the kids to the park. 

It has some nice features, including front suspension with 50mm of travel, front and rear fenders and a rear rack that can handle up to 143 lbs, a built-in storage bag to keep tools or personal items, footboards for passengers, integrated lighting with turn signals, even a dropper post so you can automatically lower your seat at stop lights, then raise it again while pedaling for full leg extension (your knees will thank you!). 

You can use pedal-assist, which feels very natural thanks to the torque sensor, or use the throttle. Either way, you can go up to 20 miles per hour. The color backlit LCD is large and easy-to-read, even in bright sunlight.

AVENTURE.2

The best selling Aventon Aventure.2 is the monster truck of Aventon’s lineup. The fat 4” tires roll over almost anything and actually take out shocks from the bumps. Additionally, the fork offers 80mm of travel. This bike is fun to ride on-road or off, and comes in both a step-over or step-through frame style. It has front-and-rear fenders to protect you from splashes, a sturdy rear rack to strap your cargo to, and an overall payload capacity of $400.

Fat bikes are great for riding on dry sand, snow, mud, etc. In those conditions, you can let out much of the air in the tires to offer massive grip. On-road, you can fill them up to roll smoothly. They’re a blast on any surface, and can be great if your commute involves some on-road and some off-road riding. Take the shortcut and have fun!

LEVEL.2

Aventon’s Level.2 is a commuter e-bike that I recommend a lot right now. With the addition of a torque sensor, which only added $200 to the price, it changed the ride experience dramatically from the original Level, which I already liked. 

It’s a solid commuter, with a 55lb capacity rear rack, hydraulic disc brakes, reasonably voluminous 2” tires with retroreflective stripes to be easily seen at night. It has front and rear fenders and integrated lighting. The rear light is so well designed. It’s built into the seat stay and beveled at a 45-degree angle to allow it to be seen from the back and the side. It’s bright and also gets brighter when the brakes are actuated.

It’s available as both a regular/step-over frame or a step-through. Both fit a range of rider heights, and can handle a payload (rider plus cargo) of 300 lbs. 

The suspension fork offers 65mm of travel, enough to take some of the edge off the bumps in the road. An optional suspension seatpost can help keep the bumps away from your derriere. The overall ride quality is fantastic, and the fit and finish are top-notch, making it an easy best selling Aventon.

SINCH.2

The original Sinch had a curved body that resembled an arch. It was distinctive, and featured 20” wheels with 4” tires, and could ride on- or off-road easily. I’m still a BMXer at heart, so I thrashed the bike around in the dirt, hit a few jumps with it, generally wasn’t nice to it, and it took it all in stride. No need to worry about the hinge in the middle of that folding bike.

They completely redesigned the Aventon Sinch.2 to be a step-through folding e-bike, helping make it a best selling Aventon bike. They did leave the tire size the same, but because of the frame redesign, it fits their biggest 672Wh battery for incredible range, and the torque sensor definitely helps the range and the natural ride feel of the bike.

The bike does fold up, but because of the massive tires, it doesn’t get as small as a normal folding bike. You might fit one of these in your trunk, but you likely won’t fit two. However, because of those big tires, the bike is always planted, it will glide nicely over any type of terrain (including dry sand, snow, etc.).
