The Aventon Sinch Folds and Opens Quickly and Securely

You can fold unfold the Aventon Sinch in under 10 seconds. Once folded, the ebike is nice and compact and fits in larger trunks. The ability to fold an electric bike into a small package allows recreational riders the ability to easily transport their ebike for their next adventure.

The Color Display on the Aventon Sinch is Filled with Features

In the past, the Aventon Sinch used a black and white display like many other ebike companies. When Aventon released the Aventure, they came out with their own color display along with a lot of new features. Some features I like about the display is that it shows you calories burned, kilograms of CO2 emissions saved, and how many trees saved during your ride. It’s a fun way to track your ride progress. The display is easily controlled with the buttons on the left side of the handlebar.

The Aventon Sinch Mobile App brings it to the future

The color display on the Aventon Sinch is Bluetooth enabled. One of my favorite features of the app is that it allows you to track your rides. The app stores your current and previous rides, giving details of your average speed, top speed, distance traveled, CO2 emissions saved, and calories burnt. You can also use the app to motivate you against other Aventon riders. There is a section in the app for cycling rank. The cycling rank will show you how you rank against other Aventon riders for the day, week, month, and total. There is a discover tab in the app that allows you to share pictures and post with other Aventon riders. The app even allows you to find local Aventon dealers for repairs. Aventon is looking to capitalize on the popularity of social bike competitive apps and programs such as Peloton and Strava.

The Aventon Sinch Ebike Has a Premium Feel and Construction

Jimmy and I have reviewed numerous ebikes, and most have chunky weld marks giving the bikes a very industrial feel. Aventon grinds down their weld marks to make the frame look flawless. It is a detail that really help Aventon stand out from their competitors.

A paint job to be proud of!

On top of having seamless weld marks, Aventon has mastered their paint jobs. The paint finish on the Aventon Sinch is stunning. Aventon came out with one new color for the Sinch, Cloud Gray. It is still offered in Crest White and Slick Black.

Does the Aventon Sinch Step Through have a throttle?

Yes, the Aventon Sinch has a thumb throttle on the left. I love having the option to hit the throttle to power up a hill or when I am just feeling winded or lazy. When starting on a hill with the Sinch, a throttle makes it so much easier to get going. The previous Sinch made you pedal before you could throttle. I am happy they changed that feature because it was obnoxious if you were in sand or trying to get started at the bottom of hill.

Does the Aventon Sinch Step Through require any assembly?

Probably one of the best features of the Aventon Sinch is that it requires zero assembly. As soon as you unbox and unfold the Sinch ST, you will only need to adjust the display and brake levers. The Aventon Sinch ST is the most complete ebike we have reviewed right out of the box. Click here for the current pricing on the Aventon Sinch.

What type of battery is in the Aventon Sinch ?

The Sinch has a 48V 14Ah battery, comprised of LG or Samsung cells. The battery is built into the frame. You don’t have to worry about batteries falling out while riding the Sinch since it is completely encased by the frame. Make sure to line up the battery with the grooves when sliding it in or it can get jammed and hard to remove.

Does the Aventon Sinch feel like riding a traditional bike?

The Aventon Sinch rides like a traditional bike, whereas the Sinch Step Through feels a little awkward and cramped. I like when an ebike rides like a traditional bike because it’s easier to pedal and you never know when you are going run out of battery. Riding and awkward feeling ebike when it’s dead is not a fun situation to be in.

Top Things We Hate about the Aventon Sinch

  1. Nylon tires
  2. Mechanical brakes
  3. No throttle in 0 PAS
  4. No fenders
  5. Low water resistance rating
  6. Small suspension travel
  7. No front facing light or taillights

What type of tires are on the Aventon Sinch?

The Aventon Sinch features 20″ by 4″ knobby Kenda Krusade nylon tire. The knobby tires are great for traction on trails but I would have preferred a rubber compound tire. Rubber grips the road much better than nylon. Click here for the current pricing on the Aventon Sinch. Click here for the current pricing on the Aventon Sinch Step Through.

What type of brakes are on the Aventon Sinch?

The Aventon Sinch feature Tektro mechanical disc brakes. I prefer hydraulic brakes. I think Aventon chose mechanical brakes because the Sinch is foldable. Hydraulic brakes can get air bubbles in the lines when you fold the bike, so it makes sense why they chose mechanical brakes. The brakes work great, but hydraulic brakes would work better.

Does the Aventon Sinch allow you to use the throttle in PAS 0?

No, you cannot use the throttle when on Peddle Assist mode 0. I hate when ebikes don’t allow you to use the throttle when in peddle assist mode 0. Sometimes I like to manually peddle an ebike and only use the throttle when trying to start from being completely stopped or when riding up hills. The Aventon Sinch does not allow you to use throttle only when in PAS 0. I am always confused why some ebikes allow you to throttle in PAS 0 and some ebikes do not.

Does the Aventon Sinch come with fenders?

The Aventon Sinch does not come with fenders. You can purchase fenders from Aventon, but I think the Sinch should come with standard with them especially at the price point. Fat tire ebikes are made to be ridden on dirt paths and taken off road. Without fenders, if the trails are wet, your back can end up a muddy mess.

What water resistance rating is on the Aventon Sinch Step Through?

The Aventon Sinch has an IPX4 water resistance rating. IPX4 means the bike is protected from splashing water, no matter the direction. You do not want to ride the Aventon Sinch in heavy rain. Most dealers do not cover water damage to PEVS, even when there is a high IP rating. Click here for the current pricing on the Aventon Sinch.

What is the suspension travel on the Aventon Sinch?

The Aventon Sinch features 45mm of travel, but it is easy to bottom out. The front suspension on the Aventon Sinch is not designed for heavy off-roading. The suspension is designed to make the ride more comfortable. It will dampen the chatter on trails and rough roads, but don’t plan on doing any technical mountain biking trails with the Sinch.

Does the Aventon Sinch Step Through have lights?

The Aventon Sinch has no taillight or headlight. I was surprised there was no light. This Sinch and Sinch Step Through are the only Aventon bikes Jimmy and I have reviewed that didn’t come with a light. I love the built-in frame lights on the Aventon Aventure and Soltera. You can always buy third party lights on Amazon that attach to the handlebars.

Who is the updated 2022 Aventon Sinch perfect for?

The Aventon Sinch is perfect for those living the van or RV life. The compact foldable design of the Sinch is great for people on the go. If you are limited on space in your garage or apartment, the Aventon Sinch folded has a small footprint. If you want to get into ebikes but don’t want to buy a rack or trailer, the folded up Sinch will fit into large trunks and small SUVS. If you want a foldable ebike, but don’t want to settle for lower quality, you should keep the Aventon Sinch in mind. If you have mobility issues, the Aventon Sinch Step Through is perfect for people with mobility issues. You can easily step through the bike and stand comfortably.
