AVE is a long established German bike brand. Having first entered the Australian market in 2018 they have recently returned with some amazing new models.
AVE’s latest iteration of the TH11 carries forward all of the positive attributes of the previous models, notably strength, durability and comfort. However, in its latest guise they have focused on improving performance, and balance, to provide customers with the widest possible range of rider applications.
A 140kg frame rating is one of the highest available in any e-bike category, let alone a low entry bike. From errands to epics, the TH11 is ready for anything. The oversized reinforced down tube, and heavy duty elevated chain stays provide you with the smoothest ride possible, even over the roughest of surfaces. The BOSCH battery is set low down and deep into the frame, lowering the centre of gravity, to deliver agility, poise, and balance normally reserved for e-MTBs.
As part of the no-compromise design philosophy, all TH11 models are equipped with the most powerful BOSCH CX motor. With a real-world 75NM of torque on tap across the widest RPM range of any mid-drive motor available you’ll have the confidence to tackle the steepest terrain with ease, even when fully loaded.
The SUV of e-bikes
The TH11 can be equipped with an optional parallel suspension seat post. With 50mm of suspension travel, it’s the closest thing to a full suspension e-bike without the drawback of the additional weight and maintenance penalties. This additional comfort is carried forward into your choice of saddles. With Selle RoyalTM as the saddle partner, AVE have selected their ScientiaTM range, as the best balance between confort and performance.
The e-Bike specific Suntour front suspension has wider 34mm lower arms for increased strength and improved braking performance.
The 15mm through axle improves safety and steering accuracy while 50mm Schwalbe Big Ben Plus balloon tyres are ECE-R75 certification for fast e-bikes (50KPH), with a tread pattern suited to both road and light trail use.
Integrated lighting as standard fitment across the range.
