Aventon Pace 350 Review

To run the forums, host the website, and travel, I charge a universal service fee for my reviews. This review was sponsored by Aventon. My goal is to be transparent and unbiased, this video and written review are not meant to be an endorsement of Aventon products.

The Aventon Pace 350 is an affordable yet capable and versatile ebike which aims to give more bang for your buck versus other value priced offerings. The Pace 350 is a scaled down version of the Pace 500, so if you saw my review on that you will see a lot of parallel information. For example, like the Pace 500, it comes in both a step-through and a high-step, each with their own sizes and colors. You can find the step-through in small and medium sizes, while the high-step is available in a small, medium, and large frame. For 999 there is surprisingly a lot to look over, so let’s get in a little deeper. The Pace 350 is a comfortable and upright bike with a relaxed position for leisure riding or commuting. That comfort comes from a seat tube that is further back, swept back handlebars, and locking ergonomic grips. You also get this Velo comfort saddle with rubber bumpers underneath and some nice fairly thick high volume tires (27.5”x2.2”) which make for wider attack angle. Unfortunately, there is no suspension fork or seat post, but I am sure most wouldn’t be surprised given the cost of the bike. However, they do have a 30.4mm seat post on the step-through and 31.6mm seat post on the high-step if you want to swap those out with a cushier option. Also, the head tube itself is tapered, which is nice because that will open up some fork options for those looking for an upgrade. The bike itself is fairly lightweight with an aluminum alloy frame and fork, coming in at 46lbs total on the small frame. It’s a handsome bike with wrapped wires, some internally routed cables, and extra gussets adding a lot of attention to detail. Other features include rear rack bosses, fender bosses, kickstand (although it is centrally mounted which could produce pedal lock when reversing), reflective sidewall stripped tires, plastic chain guide, and a semi-integrated downtube battery. The real big wins on this bike though is in the price. Although you don’t get the 500 watt motor or the hydraulic disc brakes, so many of the other features are still here including the trigger throttle complete with motor inhibitors. At 999, I would say this is definitely in the affordable category, without succumbing to generic or no-name brakes or derailleur.

Driving the Pace 350 is a Shengyi 350 watt planetary gear hub motor. Since its planetary geared, it will freewheel a little more efficiently and not cause the drag you get from gearless motors. However, since it is a sealed 12 magnet cadence sensor, you will get a little more of that “on-off-on-off” feeling as you ride it. Since it has a sealed sensor, that means no gunk or debris getting lodged inside which is a nice feature. It may not be as zippy as the 500 watt version, but it does have a smoother ramp up and is pretty quiet. On the mechanical drivetrain of the bike, you will find an 7 speed Shimano Tourney sprocket versus the 8 speed Shimano Altus on the 500. Along with that is a 14-28 Shimano freewheel so the climbing may not be as good. Controlling everything is a set of trigger shifters (one way high, three-shift low) with a windowed gear display. For stopping, you have a nice set of Tektro mechanical disc brakes with 180mm rotors and three-finger levers with motor inhibitors.

Powering this ebike is a 36v 11.6ah lithium-ion battery with Samsung cells. The battery is a little more limited than the one found on the Pace 500, but the motor should be a power sipper, so it should even out well. This battery weighs a total of 6lbs. There is a USB port on the side, but it is not for charging, but rather for service diagnostics which serves a great purpose, but looking at it does serve as a constant reminder that a USB charging port may have been a missed opportunity. The charger is 1.3lbs and puts out 3amps of charging power, a bit faster than the standard 2amp chargers we are used to seeing. The battery is secured with lock and key and can be charged on or off the bike, but I do recommend charging indoors. To really care for this and other lithium-ion packs, I have heard that storing in a cool dry location vs. extreme heat or cold will extend the life, and try to keep it about 50% full when not using for long periods so you won’t stress the cells. Try not to let it run down to zero, because that’s really hard on the cell chemistry.

The cockpit controls are great, its nice to see levers for shifting instead of the usual thumb shifter. Most of this is possible since the throttle is on the left along with the display controls. On the right is your shifting levers as well as a gear display window. Right in the middle of the handlebars is the large and easy to read display. The display does have an adjustable angle, but is not removable which can sometimes leave you feeling insecure when parking it or leaving it to the elements. The display is grayscale and features a backlight for nighttime riding. To start the bike, press power on the battery, hold the M button to turn on display. The large display offers a wealth of information starting at the battery levels. The battery infographic is shown in 10 separate 10% intervals which does a better job of leaving guess work out compared to other bikes with 33% or even 20% steps. You can scroll through several modes of pedal assist (1-5) and can use the throttle on any as long as you get that pedal rotation in. Other display options include odometer, trip A, trip B, battery voltage, and a timer. Also, if you hold down the down arrow, you can engage a walk mode. There is a deep dive menu if you want to play with other various settings. Hold up and down arrows for a couple of seconds to initiate this menu of settings. Once inside, you will have access to backlight settings, unit readout, wheel size configuration, and top speed. To exit this menu, hold M to leave.

It’s hard to knock a bike with throttle, pedal assist, and a comfortable riding position that only cost 999. So much attention to detail is given but you can’t make a bike to please everybody so there are some tradeoffs to take into consideration. Little things here and there would be issues with the derailleur and some of the wires in the rear being a little exposed. This could be problematic if the bike is damaged in shipping or even dropped. There is no slap guard in the rear, so the chain could really do some damage to that paint, something that could annoy you especially if you got a color like Wine Red to stand out. I recommend covering it with some box tape or getting an aftermarket neoprene slap guard on Amazon. Its nice to have fender bosses, but unfortunately no bottle cage bosses this time. Also, for a commuting bike, I gotta say its a little disappointing they didn’t add battery intergraded lights for either the front or back. The biggest tradeoff however, would have to be the assembly. The bike is made to order through dealers or online, but if you have it delivered to your home, do be prepared. It can take an hour or more to assemble, so make sure you have some tools handy (although they do include some) and some free time. To help remedy this, Aventon does have a YouTube video that details assembly instructions for those looking for some extra help. Of course, you can also have your local dealer do it, or pay a local bike shop as well. To be honest however, when you look at the big wins like the comfortable ride, and then look at all the little touches like the thicker reflective tires, locking grips, and brand name components, its amazing that this bike comes in at such a great price. Tradeoffs considered, this bike would probably pleasantly surprise anyone looking at the more affordable options. A big thank you to Aventon for inviting me out and letting me see their bikes and their factory.

As always, I welcome questions and feedback in the comment section below. Whether you own a previous version of the bike, have taken a test ride, or are brand new to the space, my goal is to provide an objective and honest resource. You can also join the Aventon Ebike forums and share your own photos, videos, and review updates to help others! Have fun out there, and ride safe 🙂

Pros:

  • An affordable (999) yet capable and versatile ebike which aims to give more bang for your buck versus other value priced offerings
  • Comes in both a step-through and a high-step, each with their own sizes and colors, you can find the step-through in Small and Medium sizes, while the high-step is available in a Small, Medium and Large frame
  • A comfortable and upright bike with a relaxed position for leisure riding or commuting, seat tube is further back, bike has an adjustable angle stem, swept back handlebars, and locking ergonomic grips, also has Velo comfort saddle with rubber bumpers underneath and some nice fairly thick high volume tires (27.5”x2.2”) which make for wider attack angle
  • The Pace 350 is a handsome bike with wrapped wires, some internally routed cables, and extra gussets adding a lot of attention to detail
  • A lot of bonuses like rear rack bosses, fender bosses, kickstand, reflective sidewall stripped tires, plastic chain guide, and a semi-intergraded downtube battery
  • It is equipped with a 350 watt motor for cadence based pedal assist and also a throttle rated for 20mph for leisure riding
  • Great size for stopping with the 180mm Tektro mechanical disc brakes, also with motor inhibitors
  • 36v 11.6ah battery with a 3amp charger, a little faster than the standard 2amp charger you usually see with value priced ebieks
  • Large and easy to read display offers a lot of information as well as a deeper settings menu to really do some tweaks and adjustments
  • A lot of value priced bikes have generic components however, many of the Pace 350 components are Shimano or Tektro, great to see a sub 1,500 bike without no-name parts
  • The bike is sold online or through a dealer network and offers a 1 year warranty

Cons:

  • No suspension in either the front fork or the seat, however they can be swapped out for cushier options if you want to compliment the relaxed riding geometry
  • Although the battery in theory is capable of charging peripherals via USB, there is no such option, it would be nice to see some device charging in the future
  • Additionally, batteries such as this are known for powering intergraded lights, another missed opportunity on this bike as it does not come with any in either the front or the rear
  • Display is not removable so be careful when parking in the elements or in high crime areas
  • Bottle cage bosses and slap guards are becoming common place in a lot of value priced bikes and this bike is without them, but I suppose you could add a aftermarket neoprene guard from Amazon and even get a handlebar mounted bottle holder if needed
  • A minor grip but some of the derailleur and wires in the rear are a little exposed, this could be problematic if the bike is damaged in shipping or even dropped, make sure to take good care of it
  • A decent amount of assembly is required, Aventon was nice enough to let me in their warehouse to take a look at the products being shipped out so make sure to check out the video if you want to get a good look at what is required, it does come with some tools and they have an instructional video on YouTube, or you could have a bike shop or mobile repair service assemble it if you are not comfortable

Aventon Pace 350.2 Ebike Review: The Affordable Minimalistic Go-Getter

The Aventon Pace 350.2 is a lightweight, attractive, and wallet-friendly option from the California-based brand known for offering incredible value for the money.

The Pace 350.2 is a cruiser-style commuter ebike with humble electronics, class 2 performance, minimal accessories, and a refined finish.

It’s definitely not the most powerful or practical ebike out there, but it balances comfort, utility, and style well enough to become your go-to daily workhorse.

Read our Aventon Pace 350.2 review as we delve deeper to reveal the good and bad about this ebike and help you decide if it’s the right fit for your needs.

Pros

  • Very affordable price
  • Lightweight construction
  • Low-step frame that’s easy to mount and dismount
  • Quiet motor and overall ride
  • Integrated rear lights with brake lights

Aventon Pace 350.2 Review: Affordable Go-Getter with Limited Power

Aventon offers a full array of ebikes, and the Pace 350.2 is an excellent option despite not being the most powerful or the best-equipped model in the lineup.

With a price of just 1,299 (frequently on sale for 1,099), it’s a logical choice for new ebike owners who are still testing the waters and trying to find out if commuter electric bikes are their cup of tea.

aventon, pace, review, ebike

With a 350W rear hub motor and a 24-40-mile range from the 417 Wh battery, the Pace 350.2 is great for daily commuting, errands, leisure riding, and as a bring-it-along ebike for road trips.

Those who need more power should consider its big brother, the Aventon Pace 500, which has a 500W motor and is capable of class 3 performance.

With a price of just 1,299, the Aventon Pace 350.2 is an excellent option, offering solid performance for daily commuting, errands, and leisure riding.

At 49 pounds, even though not featherweight, the Pace 350.2 is quite lightweight, making it easier to load it onto a car rack, carry it up a flight of stairs, or maneuver it in tight spaces.

aventon, pace, review, ebike

Let’s find out more about its frame, components, and overall value.

Straightforward Aluminum Frame with a Rigid Fork

The Aventon Pace 350.2 is built around a minimalistic aluminum frame with a fully rigid fork and a low-step design that improves ease of use, especially for elderly riders.

The bike is available in two sizes, Regular and Large, that fit riders between 5’3″–5’10” and 5’10–6’4″, respectively. You can also get it in two attractive colors—Cloud grey and midnight black.

Thanks to the upright geometry and cruiser-style sweptback handlebars, you’ll sit in a pretty upright position, which improves comfort and visibility. This is especially important for city electric bikes that are often ridden in dense urban traffic.

The only thing we dislike about the Pace 350.2 frame is the lack of water bottle mounts, as you won’t be able to attach a water bottle cage anywhere on the bike.

Luckily, at least the rear triangle has rear rack mounts, so you can carry panniers and stuff your water bottle there.

Decent Motor and Battery with Limited Power and Range

Even though the Pace 350.2 doesn’t have the most powerful motor and battery in this price range, they offer solid performance if you’re happy with class 2 speeds and you live in an area without extremely steep hills (10% and more).

The 350W geared rear hub motor is surprisingly quiet and can be operated with five PAS levels and a thumb throttle located on the left side of the handlebars.

The 417 Wh battery is not as large as we would like it to be but offers decent 24-40 miles of range per charge. This is possible thanks to the 350W motor drawing less power and the 49 lb low weight of the bike.

The 350W geared rear hub motor and the 417 Wh battery offer decent class 2 speeds and a range of 24-40 miles, adequate for areas without extremely steep hills.

But, to put things into perspective, the Ride1UP Turris costs similarly, but offers a 750W motor, class 3 performance, and a 615 Wh battery, so it’s worth considering as a more powerful alternative.

Low-Tier Components with Room for Improvement

The Aventon Pace 350.2 has pretty standard components you would expect to see on electric bikes under 1,500, there aren’t any big surprises to see here.

The drivetrain comes with an entry-level Shimano Tourney 7-speed rear derailleur which works well for recreational riding and short daily commutes, but it won’t take too much abuse if you’re riding long distances for fitness. Luckily, however, it’s operated with modern and ergonomic trigger shifters instead of grip shifters, which is a nice touch.

The bike also features mechanical disc brakes with 180 mm rotors, which is a standard choice on a 1,300 ebike. Though some competitors, such as the Ride1UP Turris and Juiced RipRacer, offer hydraulic discs, so Aventon could upgrade theirs in the future.

The 27.5″ x 2.2″ puncture-resistant tires are wide enough for use on different types of terrain, including hard-packed gravel, light dirt roads, and city streets. They also improve the comfort of your ride, considering the Pace 350.2 doesn’t have a suspension fork.

Integrated Lights and Full-Color LCD Display

The Pace 350.2 does not come with any accessories you’d expect to see on a commuter-style ebike, such as fenders and a rear rack.

However, there are some riders who don’t need these, and if you do, you can always add them separately later on as all the necessary mounts are available on the frame.

There are a few features that Aventon is becoming known for, such as the integrated rear lights and a full-color LCD display, both of which are fitted on the Pace 350.2.

The rear lights are integrated into the seat stays and also function as brake lights, no matter if your lights are on or off, whereas the headlight is handlebar-mounted and decently bright in pitch-black conditions.

Aventon is becoming known for features such as the integrated rear lights and a full-color LCD display, both fitted on the Pace 350.2, adding a touch of premium feel to this affordable ebike.

Perhaps the most premium-looking feature is the LCD display with app connectivity, showing a long array of stats and metrics, including leftover battery capacity in percentages.

Aventon Pace 350.2 vs Pace 500.3

The Aventon Pace 350.2 and Pace 500.3 ebikes are similar at first glance, but the Pace 500.3 costs 400 more, comes with more powerful electronics, and slightly better components.

The Pace 500.3 boasts a 500W rear hub motor, a 60-mile range with a 615 Wh battery, and a 28 mph top speed. Therefore, if you want a higher speed and range, it’s a better choice than the Pace 350.2.

The more expensive model also has an 8-speed Shimano Altus rear derailleur and hydraulic disc brakes, which are significant upgrades over the Pace 350.2.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does an Aventon Pace 350 weigh?

The Aventon Pace 350.2 weighs just 49 lb, which is considered lightweight in this price category. On average, ebikes in this price range weigh around 55 pounds, so the Pace 350.2 is much easier to lift, carry, and maneuver. Though, as a consequence, it has a smaller motor and battery than some competitors.

What is the top speed of the Aventon Pace 350?

Aventon Pace 350.2 is a class 2 ebike with a 20 mph top speed on PAS and throttle. Unfortunately, its top speed cannot be increased in the settings, as is the case with some other ebikes sold by Aventon. If you want a class 3 ebike with a 28 mph top speed, we recommend checking out the Aventon Pace 500.

How long does Aventon Pace 350 battery last?

Aventon Pace 350.2 has a 417 Wh battery integrated into the downtube that should last between 20-40 miles on a single charge. Additionally, most ebike batteries can withstand up to 1000 charge cycles, which means that your Aventon Pace 350.2 battery should last for up to 30.000 miles before it significantly loses capacity.

What class is Pace 350?

The Aventon Pace 350.2 is a class 2 electric bike with a 350W rear hub motor and a 20 mph top speed. It offers five pedal-assist levels and a throttle, both of which will work up until the moment you reach 20 mph.

Our Verdict: Ride or Pass?

In conclusion, the Aventon Pace 350.2 ebike offers a compelling balance of affordability, comfort, and decent performance.

It shines as a daily commuter bike, ideal for those seeking an entry point into the ebike world or those needing a reliable, easy-to-handle workhorse. However, its limited accessories, slightly underpowered motor, and modest battery capacity might require compromises.

Consider the Aventon Pace 350.2 it if you value a sleek design, low weight, and a budget-friendly price tag.

For those who require more power, look towards its big brother, the Aventon Pace 500. Nonetheless, the Pace 350.2 is a promising, worthy contender in the ebike market.

Aventon Pace 500 and 350 e-bikes get updates features without updated pricing

Aventon has upgraded its popular Pace 500 and Pace 350 upright riding e-bikes. The Pace series is a classic casual e-bike design, offering an easy entry into the world of electric-assist bikes at an attractive price.

Aventon Pace: What’s new?

The Pace series is Aventon’s upright, approachable, hybrid-style e-bike offering. The line caters toward a rider looking to venture on the bike path, casual city commuting, or country roads. The upright riding position is neutral for a casual ride but can still pack a punch when the urge for a sprint to the line comes.

The Next-Gen Pace 500 has an improved battery that is now fully integrated into the frame and integrated rear brake lights, headlight, and an improved full-color head unit. Aventon offers different designs and color options to fit many other personalities, including step-through frame options.

Aventon Pace 500 vs. 350: What’s the difference?

Besides the noticeable 300 price jump from the Aventon Pace 350 to the 500, there’s a component, power, and weight difference between the two Aventon Pace ebike models. The main difference is right in the name; the Aventon Pace 500 boasts a 48V – 500W Brushless Hub Motor, while the 350 (you guessed it) has a 36V – 350W Brushless Hub Motor. What does this mean? The larger motor will have more available power and torque. The Pace 500 will top out at 28 MPH, while the Pace 350 will top out at 21 MPH. Both models claim up to 40-mile battery life, so the battery life is very similar.

aventon, pace, review, ebike

The components are slightly different from the Pace 500 and the 350. The Aventon Pace 500 comes with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, while the 350 arrives with mechanical stopping power. Both brakes work with the Aventon Electrical Brake Function, where the brake light comes on when in use, and both come with 180mm rotors to stop the 51lb bikes.

Interestingly, according to a recent press release, Aventon is the first company to receive a North America cTUVus Certificate, issued by TÜV Rheinland. What does that mean? The press release states that this means the bike complies with the UL 2849 standard to ensure bike safety. Specifically, “the UL2849 Standard for electric vehicles involves product safety, battery management system (BMS), software evaluation, and functional safety evaluation requirements. In addition, it also has safety standard requirements for the controller, motor, charger, and other components.”

The price for both bikes hasn’t gone up from the previous model, making the Pace 500/350 a very attractive new pedal-assist bike for those looking.

Pedal Assist Throttle

The Aventon Pace 500 and 350 offer pedal assist and throttle to operate the e-bike motor. Use the pedal assist, and it will assist your pedaling efforts with a 1-5 level of assistance. If you’re not able to pedal for the duration of the ride or would like some cruising time, the throttle is there to power you along at up to 20mph, at the push of a button.

Aventon Pace 500 — First ride impressions

So, I’m usually the kind of rider interested in structured interval sessions and power, but riding the Aventon Pace 500 was a good reminder that bikes are meant for fun.

Aventon Pace 500 — Assembly

When the bike arrived, I was taken back by the size of the box; it was downhill bike big, and reinforced with plastic on the holding slots. The 53 lb Aventon Pace 500 inside was heavier than the carbon road rides my mail carrier and I are used to carrying.

Upon opening the box, I saw large foam forms to keep the wheels and bike safely in place during its travels. It’s an extra step I see from most direct-to-consumer companies that help ensure the delivery goes smoothly and was not wasted on this rider.

After getting the bike out from the generous amount of packing materials, I noticed the Pace 500 was nearly assembled. I looked through the extra boxed and unpacked my included tool kit; pedal wrench with multiple fittings, and a multitool. The only pieces left to install on the bike were the front wheel, pedals (easily labeled for novice assemblers), and the bars.

Most of the setup was straightforward and took no time, though the bar/headset install might take some newer mechanics. All in all, I would say the setup was easy, but I would caution those who are new to bike assembly to bring their bike to the local bike shop for a final safety check over.

Aventon Pace 500 — The Ride

The Aventon Pace 500 came charged and ready to rock, so I took mine around the neighborhood and bike paths. The bike’s 53 lbs aren’t very noticeable under the pedal assist, but when you’re riding “acoustic,” it is apparent. Still, hopefully, you keep an eye on battery life and mileage to make sure it only happens on purpose. Being familiar with e-bikes and a pedal-assist interface, I could navigate the controls quickly and find my desired assist mode. Having levels 1-5 to choose between is friendly and easy to dial in the perfect assistance and enough to get in a workout.

The upright riding position is fun and very comfortable on the open path. The large seat and platform pedals work well with casual clothes and don’t create hot spots or back pain. The step-thru style design is excellent, and the rider doesn’t risk laying down the bike or pulling a muscle while lifting it. The kickstand is robust and perfect for keeping the Aventon Pace 500 upright while taking a break to eat or hang out along the path.

The Aventon Pace 500 is a bike you’ll most likely be taking somewhere to ride, though it would be a fantastic commuter. The brake lights operation is quick and very bright. I received envious Комментарии и мнения владельцев on my review rider, often from riders behind. The weight requires an Ebike specific bike rack and could be hard for some to lift onto a conventional style. This weight isn’t out of the ordinary for a pedal-assist bike, but I feel that it should be reiterated for new riders, as this could be an issue for most, especially those not used to riding to-and-from ride destinations.

From my time on the Pace 500 thus far, I can say that it is fun and easy to use up the 40-mile battery life. The pedal assist is quick to engage and offers enough to help, but you can get a workout if you’re looking for it. The throttle feature is new to me, and it’s pretty fun, though I found myself pedaling because I didn’t know what to do with my feet.

We’ll have more to come on the Aventon Pace 500, but from our time on the bike currently, we can say it’s an excellent option for those looking to get some time on the bike path and explore beyond their mileage limits worth a look.
