A good looking bike with an integrated battery... the model could use some protective gear. ;)

FuroSystems has just unveiled the company’s latest urban commuter e-bike, the Aventa. Fresh off a £750,000 funding round, the British electric mobility company FuroSystems is adding the lightweight Aventa to its lineup. At just 16.5 kg (36 lb), the aluminum alloy e-bike is certainly on the lightweight end of the e-bike spectrum. While we’ve seen lighter e-bikes before, it usually takes a carbon frameto get below this level.

Three different Aventa models are available with frame-integrated Samsung batteries ranging from 281 Wh up to 504 Wh. In the highest-capacity configuration, FuroSystems claims a maximum range of 80 km (50 miles).The Aventa is a pedal assist-only e-bike, and thus the lack of throttle helps it achieve higher autonomy figures when kept in the lowest pedal assist level. Interestingly, FuroSystems also provided a full-power range of 55 km (34 miles). Very few companies provide range ratings in the highest pedal assist level, so this is a welcome deviation from the norm.

The bike is clearly designed for pedaling and sports a 9-speed Shimano transmission. There’s no torque sensor on this budget-priced e-bike, but the extra gears compared to many 7-speed e-bikes may help find favor among riders. Hydraulic disc brakes are another upgrade compared to most other European e-bikes in this price range. The Aventa starts at £1,399 (approximately USD $1,935) and includes a free fender set and rear rack accessory package. FuroSystems compares the Aventa to other European e-bikes from Cowboy and VanMoof competing in a similar market, with the Aventa priced around £400 (USD $550) lower.

It always makes me fascinated FlatSix911 you continually tend to report on some e-bikes just because these are a new thing even if most of them are just crap 🤣

Will you ever buy one you advertise?

Nope... just reporting what's been recently reviewed and helping to add to the knowledge base at EBR. ;)

A "review" without even mentioning the motor... :) Makes me also wonder what makes the GBP3000 Vado SL 4.0 (aluminium, sub 15 kg) different to 1500 quid Furo.
