The portability of the step-through e-bike has won the hearts of many riders, so when it comes to choosing a step-through e-bike you must be faced with the choice of a better one. In order to help you decide which e-bike to buy, this article compares two of the top models currently on the market, the Level 2 from Aventon and the Ovia from Cyrusher.

About Cyrusher

Cyrusher was established in 2014 and had been manufacturing for nine years. The Ovia, a new Step-through model from Cyrusher for the end of 2022, has been upgraded with higher performance characteristics and created to provide riders with a more affordable product for a comfortable ride.

About Aventon

Aventon is a company that originated in the USA; starting with the Fixed Gear Bike, Aventon developed and built the E-bike range in 2014, which is very popular with North American users.

There will be many details to evaluate and contrast between the two e-bikes, but this article will concentrate on the majority of the factors that should be considered as a purchasing guide.


Rechargeable Li-ion batteries are included in the Ovia and Level 2 in order to give more reliable electronics that allow a safe ride. You can ride Ovia farther without worrying, thanks to the new 52V 17ah large capacity battery. A 48V 14Ah battery, which is what the Level 2 has, is perfect for daily use. However, because of the higher power consumption on some challenging routes, it is easy for the power to be insufficient to enable extended journeys. Based on the user-friendly design, the removable battery provides a portable way to charge.

Shock absorption system

A suspension system is essential for bumpy driving conditions. There are different types of suspension systems for e-bikes, from the least expensive spring forks to the more expensive air forks. Ovia is an electric fat bike with full suspension and has upgraded the rear shock system to air suspension to provide better cushioning and optimum riding comfort for the rider. The updated rear shock is also beneficial for riders on pedals, as it increases your safety on the pedals. The Level 2 is a hardtail e-bike with only a coil-spring suspension fork, which has limited cushioning on road bumps. Especially when you are going uphill, most of your weight is on the back seat, so the bumps will be more noticeable.


Different tyre types have different effects on the ride. For multi-occasion use, puncture-resistant fat tyres are unquestionably a better option. The Ovia comes with the 20" x 4.0" Fat Tires, which allow for versatile use in different terrain conditions. The fat tyres are suitable for riding in mountainous and snowy terrain, and the choice of fat tyres ensures stability and safety. The Level 2 is an urban model with 27.5" x 2.1" Hybrid Tires, which are more efficient on urban roads. However, it is also more limited in its range of applications and can only be ridden on flat urban roads. This is not an ideal choice for areas with rough terrain.


The display's settings can make driving more convenient. The Level 2 is equipped with a backlit display that can fully track the data of the entire vehicle, including driving speed, mileage, remaining power, and other information, making it easier for you to adjust the speed. A colorful interface setting is used by Ovia's upgraded full-color backlit display to improve the readability of the data. Even in dim nighttime riding situations, the screen can be readily read thanks to the backlit design.

Weight capacity

One advantage of an electric bicycle over a traditional bicycle is that it may serve as a time- and energy-saving mode of transportation. The Level 2 can only handle a load of 300 lbs, but the Ovia has a load limit of 330 lbs (150 kg). In addition to making it easier to transport luggage, the greater load capacity better accommodates the size of the rider.

Frame structure

The Level2 is available in two sizes (S/M 4'11" - 5'7") and M/L 5'7".

M/L 5'7" - 6'1"), which offers a more user-friendly option for riders with different body types. The Ovia is only available in one size, but the overall simple frame design will suit most riders' height sizes, from 5'3" to 6'6" (164cm to 200cm).

The Level 2 is available in two colours, Polar and Himalayan, and the Ovia is available in Red, White, and Gray, with a new graffiti design on the frame. Both models offer a choice of both simple and colourful options, allowing users to choose according to their preferences.


Different manufacturers offer different warranty periods to their customers. Level 2 offers a one year warranty, which is common for many manufacturers. However, Ovia offers a two-year warranty (and a one-year battery warranty) to better protect the rights of the customer and ensure a worry free ride for every rider.

Price point

The Aventon level 2 is priced at $1899, and with a pricing range of under 2000, it is indeed a great value for money.

The Cyrusher Ovia is priced at £2,399, which is the final price offered after blending the costs.

Although the Ovia doesn't seem to be in a particularly advantageous price range at first sight, its improved high-performance components will make the price difference worthwhile. The powerful cushioning provided by the Ovia's full suspension system, the large 52V 17ah battery to support you over long distances, and the more secure two-year warranty are all reasons for the higher price. The Ovia can also be used on a variety of terrains, making it a great model for hill climbing or a tool for urban riding. The Level 2, on the other hand, is more suitable for city roads and excludes the option to explore nature.

Which one should I choose?

Along with pricing, you are supposed to consider the performance and appearance of the electric pedal bike before you make the decision. The Ovia is a good option if you want to buy a durable electric assist bike that will last for quite a long time and acquire a higher-performing step-through e bike at a more affordable price.

Final thoughts

Investing in an electric pedal bike is a great way to start living a healthy lifestyle, whether you use it for quick errands or daily riding. Admittedly, the price of an e-bike indicates that it is a high-priced item. It is important to think about its safety when using it as a mobility tool. There is no question that consumers should pick a high-quality item that is more affordable and has a longer working life. Ovia is the best option for your mobility based on quality, performance, and warranty policy. If you are still on the fence, you can choose to go to the physical stores for both models and do an offline test ride. You'll notice a significant difference between these two bikes.
