Expert Reviews90/100 based on 1 rated expert review
There is plenty of power to assist you up steep hills even with just a single gear… The things that make the Soltera less expensive turned out to be things that also make it much more fun to ride… The integrated brake lights and color screen are something I haven’t seen on some e-bikes that cost more than twice as much, so Aventon did a great job of making the bike lighter and less expensive without making it cheap.
