04 May Aventon Sinch Step-Through Review
Hello, there! Today we’re here to review the Step-Through version of the foldable Aventon Sinch by the well known e-bike manufacturer Aventon. I’ve always found it interesting to review foldable e-bikes but before my opinions, let’s check the facts about the Aventon Sinch Step-Through.

Coming with the options of a dusky green (“Moss green”) and red (“Bonfire red”) the new Sinch is totally different from the previous version in terms of the looks. The 6061 Single-Butted Aluminum Alloy frame of the step-through version of the Sinch sports a whole different boxy tube shape which resembles the Aventon Aventure. The frame also accommodates the battery which gives a clean and neat overall look.
46″x28″x30″ when folded, the unfolded dimensions of the Sinch comes to 67″x23.25″x48″. Now to be honest, you may have a hard time fitting on to your e-bike if you’re a larger rider. But that’s the case with all foldable e-bikes, and Aventon Sinch is no exception to this.
The Sinch Step-Through makes use of a 48v, 500W Brushless rear hub motor. To be honest, the e-bike has impressive performance for a 500W motor which is actually a shining aspect for this e-bike. And trust me, this applies even to uphill climbing performance.
The Sinch is powered by Removable Internal Lithium-ion 48V,14Ah (672Wh) battery, with LG Cells, internally mounted to the tube. which can be removed and replaced very easily when charging. It comes with a 48V 3 Amp Fast Charger which might take 4 or 5 hours to fully recharge the battery from zero. It’s not a duration that you would want to wait for using your e-bike but you might use this as an excuse to make the good decision of getting yourself a spare battery.
When it comes to tires, the Aventon Sinch differs from other Aventons by featuring 4-inch tan wall semi-slick tires made by Chao Yang, which may sound as an unfamiliar brand to your ears. These tires definitely contribute to the look of the e-bike, plus they roll better and quieter on the pavement compared to the previous models.
The Tektro mechanical brakes with 180mm rotors do an impressive job in ensuring the braking performance. But as some of the followers -and e-bike enthusiasts- would know, hydraulic disc brakes are more efficient in braking. I just have a hard time in understanding why, as an e-bike rider, would I want to use mechanical disc brakes while the hydraulic disc brakes are obviously more responsive. Still, as I mentioned, the Aventon Sinch Step-Through does a great job in braking, for an e-bike which features mechanical disc brakes.
Price & Value
The Aventon Sinch Step-Through comes with a price tag of $1,799, and you can always upgrade your e-bike with the accessories line available on Aventon. Besides the Sinch being super easy to set up, Aventon is also known for the above average customer service it offers. This foldable e-bike definitely gets my green light as a value performance e-bike to run daily errands with.
