Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Aventon Soltera.2. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

12 reasons to buy

  • Reviewers appreciate the easy and quick assembly process.
  • Testers praise the “smooth” and “responsive” assistance. One says the Soltera.2 is a dream to pedal.
  • The Soltera.2 comes as a step-through or step-over, each with two sizes.
  • Aventon includes a 300-lumen headlight and integrated rear lights with brake activation and turn signals.
  • Riders compliment the bright yellow paint finish and clean welds.
  • This bike is relatively lightweight for an e-bike, at 46lb.
  • Experts agree the Soltera.2 rides well with pedal assist off.
  • The frame and fork feel stiff and “solidly built,” to one tester.
  • Reviewers say the 7-speed Shimano Tourney drivetrain offers enough gearing range for hills.
  • Several testers describe the Soltera.2 as nimble and maneuverable.
  • Experts like the Selle Royal saddle and lock-on grips.
  • The large color display is easy to read and shows battery level as a percentage.

8 reasons not to buy

  • The turn signals aren’t sufficient to indicate intentions to other road users. Some reviewers believe this provides a false sense of safety.
  • The Soltera.2 is uncomfortable over rough surfaces, according to reviewers.
  • In testing, the Soltera.2 falls short of the listed 46-mile range.
  • Aventon doesn’t include a rear rack or fenders.
  • Reviewers report a lack of power on hills. The Soltera.2 performed well below average in one test.
  • Two experts say the drivetrain and brakes need “tweaking” after assembly.
  • One reviewer notes kickstand rattle during testing.
  • Experts dislike the Shimano Revo twist shifter, saying it’s hard to read and not as intuitive as a trigger shifter.

Bottom line

The Aventon Soltera.2 is a straightforward, affordable e-commuter. Reviewers enjoy the responsive and natural pedal assist and agile handling. The bike earns praise for its clean look, quality lights and display, and comfortable touchpoints. The “stiff” frame and fork, light-ish weight, and 38mm tires create an efficient ride that sacrifices comfort on rough surfaces. Experts criticize the lackluster hill-climbing ability and riding range, which falls short of Aventon’s claims. Nonetheless, they agree that, at this price, the Soltera.2 offers solid value for money and is perfect for riders who want more exercise.
