The Bosch eBike System
Drive unit, display, rechargeable battery, app – a perfect team
Advantages of the Bosch eBike system
Developed for limitless fun, eBikes with components from Bosch eBike Systems deliver outstanding technical quality and work as a perfectly coordinated team. The smart system from Bosch eBike Systems – consisting of the eBike Flow app, control unit, display, battery, and drive unit – ensures a very personal eBike experience. The new system generation combines technically high-quality eBike components with digital functions, taking fun to the next level, whether in everyday use or for pleasure.
Around 90% of all electric bikes have a mid-drive motor. Most eBike riders have good reason to choose this concept:
The advanced drive technology provides a natural riding sensation thanks to the direct transfer of power to the chain. Compared with front or rear wheel motors, the mid-drive motor offers a balanced weight distribution and center of gravity. It also offers excellent drive control, is compatible with all gear shifting systems and requires less energy thanks to better efficiency. Another advantage of the mid-drive motor is its compact, low-weight design. It integrates perfectly into the frame design, providing more ground clearance and a lower Q factor.
The natural riding sensation is the result of innovative Bosch technology with a multi-sensor concept that delivers optimum motor support. The sensors measure torque, speed and acceleration more than 1,000 times per second, ensuring perfect interaction between rider and eBike. The technology not only provides a great ride, but also ensures the required level of safety by switching off motor support automatically if the legal speed limit is exceeded. Bosch mid-drive motors are available in two variants depending on the product line, offering support up to 20 mph or up to 28 mph.
The perfect companion for everyone. The Bosch portfolio offers a range of computers and smartphone solutions – designed to meet all display needs and requirements.

All the available riding modes can be flexibly combined on eBikes with the smart system. Exceptions in this case are Cargo mode and Race mode, which are only available for eBikes with the Cargo Line or the Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition. Specialist dealers can activate up to four modes (in addition to Off mode) and thus adapt them perfectly them to your needs (unless modifications have been excluded by the bicycle manufacturer).

The support, dynamics, maximum torque and maximum speed can be set within the specified limits.
