Aventon Pace 500 Ebike Description

The Pace 500 ebike provides the rider with the ultimate balance of comfort and power. With an upright cruiser frame and a cushy saddle, you'll have excellent riding posture and will not want to stop the fun! 

Luckily, a large battery with fast charge capabilities, 3-4 hours until full, means that you can get back in the saddle in no time. A powerful motor gives you the ability to get where you're going faster than you ever expected, and five levels of pedal assist plus a throttle function mean that you can expend as little or as much energy as you like whilst doing so. Get out there and feel the Pace on our most popular ebike!

Hub Motor & Battery

A powerful rear-hub motor gives you the power to go anywhere, whilst a fast-charging battery means you'll never miss out on any activity!

Pedal Assist & Throttle

Use the lower levels of pedal assist if you're looking for a workout, and use the higher levels to help you get to the top of that hill! If you're not looking to be pedaling at all then the throttle is there to power you along at up to 20mph.

Pace 500 ships as a Class III ebike with throttle on demand and pedal assist. If you are riding on private property or in an area without ebike speed restrictions, the speed limit can be modified in the settings, and Pace 500's powerful motor can go up to about 4 MPH above the factory set top speed. Pace 500 will also operate with the throttle unplugged and removed, should you want to ride in an area where throttles are not allowed.

Aventon ebikes are built to the IPX4 water-resistant standard. IPX4 means that your bike is resistant to water splashes from any direction. This means it’s OK to ride or park your ebike in the rain. It won’t be harmed by spray from a wet road or raindrops. Your ebike is not intended to be submerged or subjected to a pressurized spray. Don’t use a pressure washer or sprayer to clean your ebike.

Electric Bike Report: Review of Aventon Pace 500

Electric Bike Report is one of the leading reviewers of electric bikes in the US today. Their independent reviews are always comprehensive and engaging. In their written review of the Pace 500, they find the Pace 500

"is a comfortable riding city/cruiser e-bike that still packs a good punch from a motor that gets up to 28 mph. As always, seeing hydraulic disc brakes on a bike that comes in under $2k is a plus in our book. This ebike is a little on the lighter side, coming in at 49 pounds, which makes hauling it much easier, and provides it with nimble handling."
