Aventon is well-known for its high quality, if somewhat expensive, electric bicycles. Now, they are bringing their expertise to the more affordable side of the market with the Soltera.

Designed for city riders, you can carry the Soltera up a flight of stairs as quickly as weaving through the streets.

Check out the lightweight and agile e-bike in the video below, then read on for all the details.

Simple, reliable, and with low-maintenance costs, the Soltera promises to make metro e-bike commuters’ lives easier. It even includes throttle-enabled electric assist and traditional pedal assist, allowing riders to expend as much or as little effort as they choose.

A 350W rear hub motor propels the bike to a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h). The 10Ah battery, seamlessly integrated into the frame, provides 41 miles of range on average. However, with no peddling whatsoever, you’ll get half the distance.

Speaking of seamless integration, you’ll also find an LED headlight on the front handlebars and a rear tail light built directly into the back frame, as well as side lighting. Aside from added visibility, not having any bulky taillights adds to the overall minimalist style.
