Aventon Pace 500 Step-Thru
Chosen by Bicycling Magazine as an Editor's Choice three years in a row, the Aventon Pace is fast and reliable with a quality equaling the entry level mid-motor e-systems from Bosch and Yamaha that are used on $2,500 e-bikes.
This Pace 500 version is a Class 3 e-bike, that means it includes both throttle like a scooter up to 20 mph, or ride with the Pedal Assist System which can reach speeds up to 28 mph.
At just 49lbs, this Aventon is light enough for most people to load onto a car rack without assistance - significantly lighter than competing ebikes. Radpower, Pedego and the bikes on Amazon are coming in at at least 65lbs.
Take off the external battery in just a few seconds and the weight drops to 40lbs, which is light enough to hand from many trunk racks, although we always recommend a platform hitch rack for safety.
Handlebar mounted buttons control the uncomplicated, easy-to-read display. You’ll be able to keep track of everything, including speed, distance, and battery level.
