26 reasons to buy

  • The Aventon Level is offered at a good price for a commuter bike with these features.
  • The bike has an attractive frame. It’s visually appealing, with an integrated battery and integrated cables.
  • With a range of 30 to 60 miles, depending on the level of assistance in use, the bike can serve as a functional commuter.
  • The integrated aluminum rack has a weight capacity of 55 lb.
  • The Level comes with sturdy aluminum fenders that keep riders dry on wet days.
  • As an additional safety measure, power to the bike is cut off when brakes are engaged.
  • Kenda Kwick Drumlin tires are designed to handle the force of an electric bike. They are constructed with a grippy compound that minimizes wear.
  • At 2.2”, the tires are wide enough to provide support over obstacles but also roll quickly on pavement.
  • The double-butted hydro-formed aluminum frame has smooth welds. It's exceptionally durable.
  • The frame of the bike has a lifetime warranty. The rest of the bike has a one-year warranty.
  • The center-mounted LCD display is easy to read, day or night. It has a backlight.
  • The grips are ergonomically shaped. Experts agree they are wonderfully comfortable.
  • Experts were pleased that the front wheel has a thru-axle.
  • The rear hub motor has 60Nm of torque. This allows riders to accelerate on flats and maintain speed with ease.
  • Users have the option of getting the bike with “Throttle on Demand” or “Throttle on Pedal.”
  • The pedals have reflective strips on them. This increases rider visibility.
  • The handlebars are 31.8 mm. This standard size is excellent for riders that choose to swap their bars out.
  • The eight-speed Shimano drivetrain shifts smoothly.
  • The bike has a weight capacity of up to 250 lb and is offered in three sizes. Individuals of many sizes find this bike useful for their daily travel.
  • The Velo saddle is comfortable to most.
  • The bike charges in under five hours, allowing it to be fully recharged during most work shifts.
  • The thumb throttle is easy to use.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes from Bengal ensure riders stop quickly. Aventon uses 180 mm rotors with this brake set-up.
  • Senior riders found the Aventon Level was easy to use and helped them maintain their fitness.
  • The bike is fitted with an SR Suntour Mobie A32 fork that offers 75mm of travel. This softens the blow felt by riders traversing over rough patches of road.
  • The throttle can be removed. This is great for riders that live in areas where throttle electric bikes are not permitted.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The bike is heavy at over 60 lb.
  • The integrated battery must be charged on the bike. It is not removable.
  • Aventon uses a cadence sensor on the bike. Experts would have preferred a torque sensor for better power delivery.
  • Users with bad knees complain that the “Throttle on Pedal” version is difficult to get going on at times. It forces them to strain their knees before they begin pedaling.

Bottom line

The Aventon Level is an affordable entry-level electric bike. It’s designed for commuters. It includes a rack and fenders. The bike has several fine features including hydraulic disc brakes, a suspension fork, throttle and five levels of pedal assist. The bike is a bit heavy. It also uses a cadence sensor versus a torque sensor. The throttle can be removed for those living in areas where the local laws prevent throttle use.
