ALL INNOVATIONS AT A GLANCE
More riding enjoyment for explorers with the Active Line Plus, smart support with the new Active Line, and modern design with PowerTube 500. All this and much more is what’s new in 2018.
We want to get better each year. This is our goal – and we are driven by our love of eBikes. With lots of dedication and passionately progressing innovations, we work on developing the eBike riding enjoyment and on making it more intensive and more fun. Here are our new features for the 2018 model year:
The drive unit for explorers
Active Line Plus
Discover new things, look forward to discovering unknown places and take delight in support by a virtually silent eBike drive. The new Active Line Plus with up to 50 Nm offers pure, natural riding enjoyment. Perfectly integrated in the frame, the silent, lightweight drive acts seamlessly. This makes the exploring ride after work or on weekends great fun.
The new Active Line
With the harmonious support of a quiet drive unit, the new Active Line offers a natural riding sensation. With its lightweight, elegant appearance and the beautifully delivered acceleration of up to 25 km/h, it is the ideal solution when you want to arrive stress-free and relaxed. More riding enjoyment, a greater range and more elegance - so city trips, gentle rides and the outing with friends simply becomes more fun.
Powerful and very inconspicuous
The PowerTube 500 combines practicality and style: The new Bosch battery provides sophisticated lithium-ion technology in a simplified, elegant aluminium design and can be integrated into the eBike frame. Invisible and well protected inside the frame, the PowerTube 500 proves to be especially comfortable.
Integrated gear shifting, relaxed riding
The integrated, electronic eShift gear shifting solution ensures riding comfort, safety, a longer range and reduced wear. New this year: Rohloff E-14 Speedhub 500/14 and eShift with Shimano in two variants. The automatic gear for hubs or especially for eMountain bikes with the electronic derailleur systems Shimano XTR Di2 and Shimano Deore XT Di2. eShift offers an optimal solution for various applications and Bosch product lines.
For Performance Line CX
The eMTB mode
Riding enjoyment meets sportiness: The eMTB mode guarantees you to experience the unique character of Uphill Flow – including a more sporty start, improved dynamics and maximum performance on the trail. For you as an ambitious athlete and demanding eBiker, the eMTB mode provides you with the required power – always precisely at the right moment.
