The best e bikes for women tend to incorporate a low step-thru design, which the Blix Aveny has. This makes it easier to mount and dismount when necessary. You\u2019ll be doing that often considering the bike will take you 45 miles in any direction at 20mph, while Tektro mechanical disc brakes provide excellent stopping power in rain or shine.\r\nWhy We Like It - Blix Aveny\r\nFor an awesome, all-purpose electric bike, the Blix Aveny is fitted with a powerful 500W motor for tackling hills, while the bike rack in the back and excellent brakes make it perfect for commuters.\r\n\r\nDurability & Build Quality\r\nTo help with costs without sacrificing build quality heavily, the frame is an aluminum low step through frame, as opposed to high step frames that\u2019s difficult for shorter people. The battery is protected by the frame, just under the seat post and behind the seat tube. The faux leather seating is both comfortable and stylish. Blix used thinner wheels reinforced by kevlar.\r\nPerformance (Speed & Acceleration)\r\nThe 500W motor coupled with pedal assist, you\u2019ll be zipping through scenery at 20 miles an hour, which outplays the 250W motor on the Lapierre eSensium 300, and is on par with the expensive, $5000 Cube Kathmandu Hybrid 45. More importantly, the Shimano Acera derailleur is grouped with the Shimano RevoShift for 7 speeds. It\u2019s a nice variety of speeds for some light terrain action.\r\nRange & Battery\r\nThe Blix Aveny Electric Bicycle isn\u2019t skipping out on its battery either. On a single charge, you can travel up to 45 miles. This translates to nearly 2 hours of travel time. However, it comes at the cost of nearly 7 hours of charging time.\r\nSafety Features\r\nThe star of the show are the Tektro mechanical disc brakes, which are comparable to Shimano, considering they often use the same padding. These brakes have excellent stopping power, both in rain or shine. This is in addition to front headlight, reflectors, and a brake light. We also really liked the unique power cut-off feature that cuts power to the motor when you use the brakes!\r\nValue\r\nThe Blix Aveny E Bikes don\u2019t want to be pegged into a single purpose; they\u2019re more of an all-purpose e-bike. This is seen by its powerful 500W motor that does beautifully on hills, while its disc brakes, long battery, and rear rake give it solid performance as a commuter\u2019s bike. And since it\u2019s priced at just $1599, it\u2019s perfectly priced for budget, unlike the Liv Thrive E+ 1 Pro.\r\nBlix Aveny Wrap Up\r\nThe Aveny Blix Bikes really come into their own as the ideal, well-rounded commuter\u2019s bike for riders up to 6\u20192\u201d\u2014with some additional power for joy rides and some light off-road fun. Its 500W motor and mechanical disc brakes make that a reality. It has a long recharge time, but otherwise stylish and powerful.
