Aventon Pace 500 Step-Thru Ebike Description

Step-through and have fun! The Pace 500 Step-Through takes our most popular ebike and makes it accessible for everyone. Whilst the step-through makes getting on the ebike a breeze the five levels of pedal assist and a throttle with speeds of up to 20 mph also make riding this ebike as easy breezy as it can get! 

A powerful motor, 750W peak output, ensures that, even on the steepest hills, your ebike still has the power to get you to the top. The large battery means that after the climb you still have the juice left to get you home. 

All of this is built into an upright frame equipped with a cushy saddle, meaning that you will experience the power in one of the most relaxed and comfortable positions you'll ever find yourself in on any ebike!

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.
