Populo Reviews

Avant Sports (who owns Aventon, 6KU) now owns Populo. Populo endeavors “to build bicycles that make cycling for work or play accessible to all people.” They say that they make it so that you can commute to work or any of your activities with ease, and so that you can even carry groceries or pull a trailer with your electric bike. In addition to their electric bike offerings, they also make scooters and hoverboards. Warranties are offered on all Populo’s electric bikes and main components sold by, “an authorized Populo Bikes retailer”. This will allow their customers to rest assured that even if they receive a defective part, they will either replace the part or fix it.
