With a 60-mile range, a torque sensor, two frame options, and four pedal-assist levels, this fat tire ebike is dialed for off-road hijinks.
The ebike world keeps getting more and more interesting. Case in point: the recently announced Aventon Aventure.2 fat tire ebike.
The Aventure.2 includes several upgrades over Aventon’s original model. The new additions theoretically give the Aventure.2 decent day-trip adventure bike chops.
Let’s dig into the details. Aventon’s major upgrade over the Original Aventure is using torque sensor pedal-assist technology over a cadence sensor. Simplifying things as much as possible, a cadence sensor works by consistently assisting riders based on preset speeds. Cadence sensors measure if a rider is pedaling, provide power up to a certain speed, and then cut off power once that speed is reached.
Meanwhile, a torque sensor measures how hard a rider is pedaling and responds accordingly, depending on settings. The harder you pedal, the more help you get.
Aventon’s blog post describing the difference between the two pedal-assist technologies asserts that a torque sensor feels more like a classic bike riding experience. Another handy bonus: torque sensors tend to increase battery life, as they aren’t delivering a predetermined amount of assistance at a steady rate. Torque sensors are also more likely to appeal to riders who feel like e-bikes are “too easy.” Aventon Aventure.2 Fat Tire Ebike: Other Features The Aventon Aventure.2 comes in step-over or step-through frames […]
