Aventon Sinch Foldable e-bike is one of the most fun to ride electric bikes on the market. On top of that, it’s one of the best looking!

Aventon Sinch In-Depth Review

I don’t know why, but there’s something about fat-tire e-bikes that makes them incredibly fun to ride. But it’s not every day you stumble upon a fat tire e-bike as elegantly crafted as the Aventon Sinch.

The Sinch offers the unbridled joy of cruising around on ridiculously large tires - yet it doesn’t sacrifice the ride and build quality. This makes it one of the best e-bikes you can buy in this price range.

What’s more, this bike is also foldable! This means you can easily pack it up and take it with you on any adventure you think of. Thanks to its big tires, you’ll be able to glide over sand, rock, and, of course, asphalt.

This is currently the only fat-fire e-bike on the market with a fully integrated battery. But, before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s take a look at the specs.

As you can see, the specs on this bike are nothing to scoff at. Let’s take a deeper look into the marvel of engineering.

Frame

The frame on Aventon Sinch is on a whole other level compared to the competition. It’s built out of 6061 hydroformed aluminum. The frame design is incredibly striking with bold, strong lines. However, the design serves a good purpose! Inside the tube, you can find the battery. As I mentioned above, the battery is full integrated into the frame. Don’t worry; you can still remove it. All you have to do is fold the bike and press a button, and the battery will slide out.

The battery also distributes the weight evenly, resulting in excellent handling. 

Just like with all Aventon bikes, the woodwork on the frame is otherworldly. I have yet to see e-bikes in this price range with welds so smooth and seamless. The frame almost looks like it was cast rather than welded together.

Extra Features

Who needs extra features when the SInch is so fun? With that said, this bike doesn’t come with a lot of extra features. The only one is the suspension fork. 

The Aventon Sinch features an RST Suspension fork with 45 millimeters of travel. While this I snot a lot of travel, it’s more than enough to absorb most of the bumps coming to the front of the bike. When combined with oversized tires, you will have a smooth ride even over the roughest of terrains. 

Besides the suspension, this bike also comes with a large backlit LCD display. The display is easy to read and provides you with all the information you need about your ride, including the speed, battery health, level of pedal assist, as well as distance traveled. 

Motor

The Aventon Sinch features a 500-watt (750 watts peak) geared rear hub motor that provides assistance up to 20 MPH with pedal assist and/or throttle. 

The motor provides a decent range of riding performance from easy going up to quick and powerful thanks to five levels of pedal assist and the throttle. 

Just like most rear hub motors, the motor on the Sinch produces some noise. The noise isn’t that loud, but it is quite audible when riding at slower speeds. Once you reach the top speed of 20 MPH, the noise dissipates quite a bit.

Battery

The Aventon SInch is powered by a high-capacity lithium-ion 48V battery rated at 672Wh. Just like all batteries from Avetnon this one also features Samsung cells, so you don’t have to worry about the dying out any time soon.

The position of the battery in the frame is ideal because it gives the e-bike its unique look and distributes the weight more evenly for a smoother ride. Since the battery is fully integrated into the frame, you don’t have to worry about dust or water getting in.

When it comes to range, on a full charge you can ride for up to 71 miles. That is if you use only the first level of pedal assistance. Realistically, you will be able to ride for around 40 miles on one charge.

The battery recharges quite quickly thanks to Avetnons fast charging technology. You can fully charge it in less than five hours.

Speed And Brakes

SINCH FOLDABLE EBIKE

The Aventon Sinch is a class II electric bike. This means it can reach a top speed of 20 MPH on the pedal assist. What’s more, if you feel lazy, you can also reach the same speed using the throttle. Just keep in mind that you have to turn the pedals at least one-third of the revolution before you can engage the throttle.

The Sinch features Tektro MD 810 mechanical disc brakes with 180 mm rotors. You won’t have any trouble coming to a full stop in just a couple of feet. The breaks also feature an automatic cut-off system that will disengage the throttle the second you hit the breaks.

Tires

Like I mentioned before, and as you can see from the pictures, the Sinch comes with oversized Kenda Krusade tires. These tires are puncture-resistant, which means you can go full ham on just about any type of terrain.

The tires have an aggressive tread that’s just perfect for rough terrain. No matter the terrain, you won’t have any trouble finding grip with these tires.

The Aventon Sinch is one of the most fun e-bikes to ride on the market. On top of that, it’s the only foldable fat-tire e-bike that features a fully integrated battery.

SINCH FOLDABLE EBIKE

Thanks to fat tires and fork suspension you will hardly feel the roughness of the terrain. This bike is perfect for when you want to go on a weekend adventure to the beach or into the woods and just drive around until you’re sore all over.

My only gripe with the Sinch is the throttle system. I can’t stress enough how I dislike having to turn the pedals so I can engage the throttle. While I understand that it’s a safety feature, but there must’ve been another way about doing it, but that’s just my opinion.
