Pre-Ride Safety Check (Applies to All Models)

All our bikes are pre-checked to ensure they are in optimal condition for your ride. However, we recommend that you perform a quick safety check before each ride to ensure your own safety and comfort. Here are some simple steps you can take:

  • Brakes: Squeeze the brake levers to ensure they engage smoothly and effectively. Check for any unusual noises or resistance.

  • Tires: Inspect the tires for proper inflation and any signs of damage such as cuts, punctures, or excessive wear. Inflate the tires to the recommended pressure if necessary.

  • Battery Level: Check the battery level indicator on the display panel to ensure it is sufficiently charged for your planned ride. If needed, charge the battery before setting out.

  • Lights and Signals: Test the front and rear lights, as well as any turn signals or indicators to ensure they are functioning properly, especially if you'll be riding in low-light conditions or at night.

    • To turn on headlights, hold the +sign.

    • Turn Signals (Only on Aventon Abound) Use < or > buttons

  • Seat and Handlebars: Adjust the seat height and position, as well as the handlebar height and angle, to ensure a comfortable riding posture and proper control of the bike.

Performing these checks only takes a few minutes and can greatly enhance your riding experience while ensuring your safety on the road. Enjoy your ride!
