E-Bikes are in High Demand at Home and Away




Since the onset of Covid and people being cautious of being in public transportation and among crowds, E-bikes have grown in popularity.  They are a safe and easy way to get to where you’re going, while getting in some exercise.  They are also a perfect way to vacation, as you’ll read below.


The Aventon bike was shipped to me in perfect condition.  The bike was mostly assembled and just needed a little bit of assembly, which was very simple.  Everything I needed to do the bit of assembly was included, including a bike wrench and tool kit.


The kick stand on the Aventon bike is thick and sturdy to hold the bike up well when not in use.  The seats and handle bar are extremely comfortable and designed for long rides.



Pedal Assist

One of the things I enjoy about e-Bikes is their pedal assist.  What is pedal assist you ask? It’s a mode on electric bikes that provides power from the motor of the bike to help assist the rider and helps you pedal easier and go faster.  You can adjust your level of assist and then the motor will give you a different level of assistance based on what you’ve chose , as you pedal. Going uphills is effortless with the pedal assist.  Take it from someone who use to have to push their bike uphill.

I have been cruising all around places I wouldn’t dream of riding before.  I am so grateful to Aventon to bring me this opportunity to review this beautiful e-bike and look forward to sharing more posts with you!  Learn more about  Aventon’s top e-bikes and some e-bike vacation ideas below.

E-Bike Demands

Demand for Aventon E-Bikes – pedal-assist electric bikes – is skyrocketing right now in all 50 states. The popularity is across all age demographics, male AND female, from teenager to 65+. A good part of the demand was brought on by the pandemic. More on that trending demand below.

3 of the MOST POPULAR E-BIKES

 1.  The Level Step-Through ebike is a commuter’s dream that could replace a car for running errands and riding to work or school. This innovative, slick and technologically advanced new ebike, which became available in August, provides easy access with a step-through frame and a smooth, thrilling ride reaching up to 28MPH with pedal assist. This ebike is a tweaked version of Aventon’s best-selling Level that was introduced in the Spring.  Fans and partner bike shops suggested body changes to appeal to a broader fan base and Aventon built the Level Step-Through based on their wish list -- a step-through frame that’s easy to hop on and off.  



2.  The Level ebike, introduced in Spring 2020, is engineered for riders who want to escape from their cars but still want to keep up with traffic on their work or school commute. It’s built with the same proven motor technology as the Pace 500 electric bike but with geometry and convenience features for urban riders. With peppy handling, a suspension fork, and an extended battery, the Level Commuter Ebike can take everything that you throw at it. 

 


3.  Sinch ebike is the most versatile folding fatbike on the market. With massive 4” tires, a suspension fork, and plenty of power – 500 watt (750 watt peak) motor – the Sinch has some kick, and is a super comfortable electric folding bike that handles like a dream to ride on all terrain types. Perfect for those with limited storage space, the Sinch is foldable and easily stored in your closet, under your desk, in the car trunk or in your RV. Regardless of where you ride and where you travel, the possibilities are endless with the Sinch.

TRENDING DEMAND


The demand shot up once the pandemic hit, and it continues as a states start to reopen, shut-down again, and fears of a second wave of Coronavirus is among us. Many want ebikes because:

  • people afraid of mass transit and standard commuting due to COVID
  • people afraid of ride shares like Uber, Lyft, van pools and taxi
  • need for “Social Distancing” & “Self-Isolation”
  • the need for exercise since gyms, yoga classes and other studios shut down
  • need to “escape” for fresh air and to explore with your significant other
  • an e-Bikes gives an assist those who may not think they are “athletic enough” for a standard bike – allowing them to keep up with friends, kids and grandkids
  • need to make 2021 better than their 2020…
