FuroSystems has just launched the new e-bike urban commuter venture, Aventa. Fresh off a €750,000 investment round, the British electric mobility firm FuroSystems is adding the lightweight Aventa to its line-up.
At just 16.5 kg (36 lb), the aluminum alloy e-bike is definitely on the lightweight end of the e-bike scale. Although we’ve seen lighter e-bikes before, it normally takes a carbon frame to get below that amount.
Three separate Aventa models are available with frame-integrated Samsung batteries ranging from 281 Wh to 504 Wh. In the configuration of the highest capacity, FuroSystems claims a maximum range of 80 km (50 miles).
Aventa is a pedal assist-only e-bike and thus the lack of throttle allows to achieve higher autonomy when held at the lowest pedal assist speed. Interestingly, FuroSystems also offered a maximum power range of 55 km (34 miles). Very few firms provide range scores at the highest Pedal Assist mark, so this is a welcome departure from the norm.
