We have read all expert and user reviews on the Aventon Sinch Step-Through. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

14 reasons to buy

  • The Sinch ST folds smoothly at the frame, handlebars and pedals, to fit in your car boot or closet.
  • A 48V 14Ah battery ensures a realistic maximum range of around 40 miles.
  • Stylin’ design cues and tanwall tires confirm the Sinch ST as a real stunner.
  • With a low-slung step-through frame, the Sinch ST is easy to mount and dismount.
  • 7 gears couple with 5 assist levels to provide plenty of gear range for all terrains.
  • Reviewers say that there is very little delay when pedal-assist engages.
  • With an adjustable-height handlebar, the Sinch ST fits riders 4’11” to 6’3”.
  • Tires? The Sinch ST’s 4” fatties are ready to roll over various surfaces.
  • A 45mm suspension fork counters small-wheel bump feedback on uneven roads.
  • The Sinch ST has an easily readable full-color display that syncs with Aventon’s app.
  • With a 3-amp charger, the Sinch ST’s battery is fully juiced in 4 to 5 hours.
  • The Sinch ST's display shows trip time, ‘calories burned’ and ‘trees saved’.
  • Testers found the Sinch ST very quick and easy to assemble with included tools.
  • A sturdy kickstand is included with the Sinch ST.

5 reasons not to buy

  • At 68lb, the Sinch ST is heavy enough to create its own miniature gravity field.
  • With no fenders, mud and water soaked Sinch ST riders.
  • Some testers would prefer the power of hydraulic disc brakes.
  • Lights are not included with the Sinch ST.
  • Higher quality means a higher asking price, compared to some of the competition.

Bottom line

The Sinch Step-Through is a refined version of Aventon’s Sinch foldable Class 2 e-bike. This frame is easier to mount and dismount, for less agile riders. It’s also much spunkier, due to a design overhaul and tanwall tires. With a folding frame, handlebars and pedals, the Sinch ST suits RV and van-lifers as well as inner-city dwellers with limited storage capacity. At 68lb it may be too heavy to carry up multi-level walk-ups to home or work. The Sinch ST is not suited to serious off-roading as the 45mm suspension fork can easily bottom-out. For riding on smooth surfaces, broken pavement and gentle dirt roads, this easy-to-fold and easy-to-ride bike will suit many commuters and travellers.

2022 Aventon Sinch ST Folding Commuter Ebike Review

I think it’s really essential to have these big tires when you have these small wheels because that gives you stability and bump-rolling, rough terrain ability. For small wheels, obstacles ‘look bigger’ to the wheel.

Fat Tire Foldie: Aventon’s Stout ‘Sinch’ Ebike Is Ready to Travel

Braking power is good from the cable-actuated discs, but I’d like to see them move up to hydraulic systems if possible. I was also a bit disappointed to see the Sinch did not include fenders or lights. Despite those minor quibbles, I had a lot of fun on the Sinch and it was great to be able to pop it into the back of my small electric car without needing a bike rack.
