Announcing The New Aventon Pace E-Bike Series

The E-bike pros Aventon are announcing an all-new series of next-generation bikes. Check out the Aventon Pace e-bike series in this article.

One of the best-known names in e-bikes is setting the bar once again with the launch of the next-generation of its award-winning Aventon Pace 500 e-bike.

It seems like new electric bicycle brands show up every other week these days, making it difficult for new, bike-curious buyers to sort the wheat from the chaff in terms of quality – especially if what you’re looking for is just a “normal” bicycle that you can use every day. The fact that this new Aventon Pace E-Bike is the first ever e-bike to receive TUV certification for safety and quality speaks to that first part. As for what passes for “normal”, that’s exactly what the people behind the new Aventon Pace 500 are going for.

Not a mountain bike, but you can ride it on grass and trails. Not a road bike, but reasonably quick with a quality gearset. Not a lazy beach cruiser, but with a comfortable seat and upright riding position that’ll stay comfortable on longer rides, the next-gen Pace 500 is designed to be perfect for a casual ride, but still able to “pack a punch” when the opportunity for a bit of thrill presents itself.

As a pack of elder millennials and aging Gen-Xers who are discovering new words like “sciatica” all the time, we’ve decided that the new Aventon Pace 500 is aimed squarely at us – and we already love it!

The list of upgrades to the new Pace include an improved battery that’s been fully integrated into the frame, as well as integrated rear brake lights and a new, LED headlight. Next-Gen Pace 500 buyers have a new palette of colors to choose from, as well, in addition to tweaked frame sizes and the option of a step-through frame.

The Aventon Pace e-bike’s lightweight, li-ion battery is good for up to 40 miles of electric riding and a top speed of up to 28 mph, thanks to a 48V, 500W brushless rear hub motor. Adjustable ride modes help riders to “dial-in” the level of pedal assist that suits them, and app sync functionality helps riders get the most out of the updated Pace, and a full-color LCD display is now standard (optional on the previous-gen.).

Not Just a Top-Level Upgrade

The next-generation Aventon Pace 500 carries a $1699 price tag – slightly higher than the outgoing model’s $1599, but it’s a significant enough upgrade that, in our opinion, the price increase is negligible. If you’re a really cost-conscious buyer who’s willing to give up some top speed, however, Aventon has you covered with the more price-friendly Pace 350, which received a lot of similar upgrades but makes do with a less powerful, 350W hub motor good for a top speed of “just” 20 mph.

If you’re not a speed demon, the 350 may do the job – and, at just $1399, we imagine Aventon will have itself a winner there, too.

The updated Aventon Pace 500 and Pace 350 models will be available to order through the Aventon website from March 22nd, and ship pre-wired and ready to assemble with basic hand tools.
