More than 2,000 of Aventon’s popular e-bikes have been recalled, the company announced last week.

Owners of Sinch.2 bicycles should stop using them and seek a free repair as soon as possible, according to an announcement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

These folding, 500W e-bikes were available in quicksilver and sapphire colors. They were sold at various locations, including bicycle stores nationwide and online retailers, from April to August 2023 with a price tag of about $1,800.

The recall, which affects about 2,300 bikes, was initiated over concerns regarding unexpected acceleration in the Aventon Sinch.2 e-bikes, which could lead to a loss of control, posing potential crash and injury hazards. Although the CPSC reports that Ride Aventon Inc. has received six reports of the e-bikes “accelerating unexpectedly,” no injuries have been reported so far.

Free repairs are available through a Ride Aventon authorized dealer. That involves a software update to the controller to address the acceleration issue.

For more information about the recall, contact Ride Aventon at 866-300-3311 during their business hours or reach out via email at info@aventon.com. Further details can also be found on the Aventon recall page.
