​The Venture's ancestors come from asphalt streets and dirt trails. Lucky you. It inherited the DNA of both.

The Venture is a hybrid commuter with the soul of a hardtail and the expected features and performance of a high quality premium e-bike.


From the natural ride response of the most advanced torque sensing technology to flat resistant tires and high tier hydraulic brakes and components, the Venture is intended to compare against e-bikes at twice the price.

The Venture dominates a range of riding conditions, because the bike and the tech seamlessly merge, maximizing the performance of both. The forward battery centers the rider and provides the well-balanced performance you crave in an e-bike.

So venture hither and yon. Venture over the river and through the woods. Venture down a random trail and see where it leads. (Unless you're in bear country. That would be foolish.)


We think you'll agree, life is just better when you add Venture!

With a focus on ride performance, Acey DC E-Bikes are designed

to provide the most intuitive and sophisticated ride possible.

It all starts with the ride technology:

Torque Sensor:
Dual-Pedal Bottom Bracket

Our torque sensor delivers an intuitive, predictable and pure bike riding experience - while giving you the pedaling power of a super-hero!

What it is:

Our torque sensor is a high-precision measuring device that replaces your pedal's axle. It continuously measures your natural interaction with the bike (pedal pressure and pedaling speed) to control the speed exactly like pressing the pedals controls a regular bike.


​It's the "Gold Standard" for pedal assist that makes your e-bike ride and react like a regular bike, but twice as easy to pedal.

​How it works:
On a regular bike, you press harder on the pedals to speed up or climb a hill, softer to slow down.
That's how you ride an Acey DC E-Bike! It's a smooth application of equal power, with a SMART onboard computer than knows when you need an extra boost for riding up hills or into a strong headwind.

Sine-Wave Controller (18A)

This sine-wave controller applies power smoothly, makes the motor quieter, reduces motor vibration and creates a consistent and predictable ride.


What it is:

The sine-wave controller is the onboard computer that continually processes not one, but three data points to determine your needs and apply appropriate power. It controls all electronics, including the lights from it's dry, safe, and secure location inside the frame.


How it works:

Using multiple data points from three sensors, our custom algorithm can tell the difference between needing power to speed up, maintain a pace or climb a steep hill. No fudging with PAS settings to change your riding speed and power ratio, the controller allows the bike to ride exactly the same in all levels.


Smooth, but powerful response.

With great precision, it controls the motor's response with firm but smooth power. It's quick and controlled - like a bike, not a moped.

The instant response of the controller, combined with the precision of the torque sensor, speed sensor, and cadence sensor provides the ultimate high-tech ride!

500 Watt Geared Hub Motor

Power and torque to make molehills out of mountains and whisk you down the trail/road without hesitation.

What it is:

Geared hub motors are light and small, often going unnoticed behind the rear gears and brake disc. They are virtually maintenance free and are considered "bullet proof" if you ride in normal conditions.

Don't let appearances fool you:

Our powerful 500 watt motor has plenty of torque and an automatic "beast mode" with up to 864 peak watts to flatten hills, conquer the wind and stay with traffic through an intersection from a stop.

How it works:

The key to our hub motor's efficiency is three planetary gears inside the motor. They allow it to run at its peak speed - even when the wheels are turning faster or slower than the motor.

Motor speed and torque.

Increasing one decreases the other. Our motors are in the middle, providing balanced strength and quickness. They are not speed motors and top out at 23 miles an hour - even if you change the programming to go faster.

Samsung Cell Batteries:
13Ah, 624WH or 17Ah, 864WH

The "fuel tank" for your PAS with enough juice to take you from A to B. And to C, D, E...

Samsung cells are synonymous with electric vehicles because of performance and reliability.


The Venture's batteries are semi-integrated in the down tube and provide a counter-balance for the rear motor. The result is a perfectly balance ride that makes the Venture feel even more like a regular bike!

Half Twist Throttle

You don't have to use a throttle, but you'll always be glad it's there:


  • A throttle is a head start for your pedaling when starting from a stop, no matter what gear you stop in. Twist to quickly get to pedaling speed.

  • It's quick acceleration to safety when the light turns yellow after you enter an intersection.

  • It's the ability to take a rolling-rest-break when you're getting back into shape, rehabbing from an injury or feeling "bleh" after a long day.


  • It's the ability to ride with friends with different riding skills and physical fitness levels - and stay together as a group. Nobody falls behind. Nobody needs to stop for frequent rest breaks. And nobody will insist on shortening the ride because they're tired.

The Venture features a half-twist throttle located on the right grip. We use twist throttles because it's easier to clamp you hand over the throttle, holding it in place as you normally grip for constant, steady speed. We do have left thumb throttles in stock if you crave thumb cramps from holding it in just the right position.



Because the safety, rideability, and quality of an electric
bike are only as good as the "bike."

Here are some of the features of the Venture:

Aluminum Frames

The Venture electric bike frame is made of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy - strong, safe, light, durable, and corrosion and rust resistant.

Lightweight aluminum frames are popular on all bikes, but important on e-bikes to offset the weight of the motor and battery. It also makes the electric bike more efficient and easier to pedal than a heavier steel frame.

The down tube (from steering head to pedals) is engineered to provide stability and strength while also holding the battery inside the tube to counter balance the weight of the rear motor and create a perfectly balanced center of gravity.


All Acey DC E-Bikes have a clear coat of paint. In the case of the Venture, it's a matte coat that pebbles the surface, refracting the reflection and causing a "dull shine." (Compare the matte red Venture to the gloss red Eclipse SS - same color, different clear coat.)


Technical: T6 is the strongest 6061 aluminum alloy. It has an "ultimate tensile strength" of at least 42,000 psi (pounds per square inch). The fatigue limit under cyclic load is 14,000 psi for 500,000,000 completely reversed cycles.

E-Bike Rated, Flat Resistant Tires

SIZE: 27.5" x 2.2"

TYPE: Kenda Kwick Drumlin KS+ moped tires

5-STARS:  Durability, Dry Grip, Flat Protection

4-Stars: Speed, Wet Grip.


Getting a flat tire on ANY bike is a buzzkill. When it happens a mile down a trail or halfway to school or work, you can only hope your day gets better.


No worries, we increased the thickness of the K-Shield in our custom tires to 5mm for the best balance of flat resistance and great ride quality.


​​K-Shield Plus - a 5mm thick, light and flexible rubber containing ceramic particles and synthetic polymer fibers (exceptional strength and thermal stability) to form a puncture resistant, flexible barrier inside the tire, under the tread area.

  • Feels at home on concrete as well as gravel paths and forest roads.

  • Deep sipes for water channeling in wet conditions

  • Burly shoulder knobs add grip for more cornering confidence in wet/loose conditions.

  • Be seen - Reflective tape across sidewalls for better nighttime visibility.

  • E-bike ready - Certified according to ECE-R75 norm and approved for e-bikes up to 31mph.

Front and Rear Lights

The AXENDO 60 headlight and Elips 6-LED taillight are powered by the main battery and controlled by the thumb control and the light sensor on the display.


The Axendo 60 is a bright, dependable headlight with 2 high-power REBEL© LEDs and features the unique Reverse Beam Technology© which projects an impressive 60 Lux light output in a bright – but non-blinding – light beam. Aluminum and stainless steel construction for durability and long life.

The Elips taillight has 6 super-bright LED lights in a ring, surrounded by a large reflector. The rear light functions as a brake light during the day and a very powerful taillight at night.

The lights are turned on manually by pressing and holding the light button on the control pad for 2 seconds.

The light sensor on the display will automatically turn on the front and rear lights when you enter a tunnel, ride in the shadows under a forest canopy, or as the sun sets. And then turns them off again in well-lit areas.

SR Suntour Suspension Fork

SR Suntour XCM HLO suspension fork with 100mm of travel, preload and lockout makes the Venture tree root and pothole ready....

10-Speed Shimano Deore Drivetrain

We use higher-quality components for performance, rideability and longevity. Deore is where heavier, more durable components end before lighter weight components for people with non-electric bikes begin.


The Venture features the quality precision of smooth and dependable shifting from Shimano Deore derailleur, gears, and shifters.


The Deore Rapid Fire Plus shifter quietly moves the chain up and down through the gears with reliable precision. A pull of the index finger shifts to higher gears, a press with the thumb shifts to lower gears. A hard press with the thumb skips gears through the downshift - perfect for quickly down-shifting when coming to a stop or to change gears when climbing hills.

​​T = Teeth on Gear

The Venture has a large, 42T chain ring at the pedals and 11-34T gear set. The combination provides a wide range of gearing (from hills to flatlands) to make your ride easy and comfortable at every speed.

You won't look like a hamster in a wheel, legs a whirling blur, when you ride your Venture at top speed. You'll always find the perfect gear for your speed, terrain and riding style.

Hydraulic E-Brakes

​Going fast means the need for more stopping power. More stopping power means more friction on the disc. More friction on the disc can lead to overheating your brakes and warping your discs...

From wider tires to oversized discs and E-Tuned brakes, the Venture was designed to stop before it was designed to go.

The Tektro Auriga E-Tune braking system is specifically designed for use on electric bikes and their extra weight, speed, and required stopping force.


We combined the powerful hydraulics with larger, 180mm discs on the front and rear for amazing stopping power and critically important heat dissipation.


And it's all controlled with the pressure of only a finger or two.

Brake Levers

The brake levers are also motor cut-off switches and a slight squeeze will kill the motor without applying the brakes. They also feature a parking brake (squeeze brake lever, flip switch) to lock your wheels when parking on hills. The lever also activates your rear light as a brake light during daylight hours. (When your lights are on, it uses all six LEDs for better visibility, so no brake lights when they are on.)

Suspension Seat Post and Saddle

Roads aren't always smooth, but that doesn't mean you have to feel every little imperfection...

Suspension Seat Post

The Venture features an adjustable Promax suspension seat post with 40mm of travel. Adjust the rebound (softness) to fit your weight and road conditions with a twist of the cap under the rubber protective boot - no tools required.


It's called a saddle, but it attaches to a "seat" post. Like you, we don't care what you call it, as long as it's durable and comfortable.


The Venture features Mach2 gel saddles from Selle Royal, an Italian company known for more than 50 years of quality.

It's a versatile saddle for a versatile e-bike. The Mach2 is designed for the Athletic riding position of the Venture's geometry and is particularly suitable for trekking and mountain biking.

Foam Matrix

The foam matrix open cell structure confers increased elasticity and breathability to guarantee a durable and comfortable saddle.


Integrated Clip System

A patented clip system positioned at the rear of the saddle for easy attachment of a Selle Royal saddle bag or other accessory like extra bottle holders.

Rear Rack

No rattle. No jiggle. No weak attachment points.


The Venture's rack is aluminum and securely bolted directly to the seat stays. It has a spring clamp to secure smaller cargo and its standard width is designed for most panniers, saddle bags, or trunk bags.


  • The tail light is attached to the rear of the rack.

  • The rack can hold up to 55 pounds of centered weight.

  • Solid aluminum construction

  • Matte black
