Full power for the ultimate Uphill Flow

The Performance Line CX is a powerful and dynamic drive – for intuitive handling and a unique riding sensation. Thanks to the multi-sensor concept and the innovative Bosch motor control, the Performance Line CX sets new technical standards: It responds flexibly, with great sensitivity, and unfolds its full potential on technically demanding trails. One effective feature is eMTB mode, which applies exactly the right amount of power from Performance Line CX, allowing you to focus all your attention on the ride. In the eBike Flow app, you can adjust the support, dynamics, drive torque and maximum speed of your eBike in the riding modes Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo, to suit your individual needs.

Strong support

The Performance CX drive unit is the power benchmark among the drives. Weighing 2.9 kg and with a maximum torque of 85 Nm, it brings more riding enjoyment to the trail on demanding rides despite its particularly compact size. The eMountain bike motor is compact, lightweight and extremely powerful, combining high-quality materials, an extremely powerful drive and high-end sensors.

The Performance Line CX - for the smart system

A real powerhouse

The maximum torque of 85 Nm has a noticeable effect on your riding performance when eMountain biking. The powerful motor enables rapid acceleration after tight turns and obstacles at a low cadence and facilitates starting up on the steepest of hills. For fast sprints, the motor also supports you at high cadence.

Intuitive handling

Specially designed for sporty use, eMTB mode offers you optimum control and intuitive handling, as you need to switch less between the different riding modes. With this clever function of the eMTB mode, technical sections can be mastered with confidence and obstacles such as root systems and thick branches can be overcome by applying targeted pedal pressure with the Extended Boost. The Performance Line CX drive unit thus ensures even more riding enjoyment and a flow experience that sets the standard.

Sporty and economical

Sporty riding on a trekking bike or eMTB: The Tour+ mode of the Performance Line CX allows riders to focus purely on riding enjoyment. It eliminates the need to manually switch between riding modes and saves energy by increasing rider performance. This provides for a natural riding sensation in every situation, even during extended rides.

Smart Walk Assistance

Even on the steepest of trails when riding is no longer an option, the eBike can be pushed more easily using Walk Assist: Simply press and hold the minus button, move the eBike and you will already feel the support. The LED Remote and Kiox 300 also provide you with a visual "guide" to facilitate operation. Walk Assist particularly helps you when eMountain biking uphill in difficult terrain or on stairs.

Wireless speed sensor

In addition to the wired solution, the smart system features an internal speed sensor, which is located in the drive unit. The wired sensor is dispensed with and the spoke magnet is now attached directly to the wheel, resulting in a cleaner eBike look.

*In eMTB mode, the assistance level varies between Tour and Turbo riding modes.
**In Tour+ mode, the assistance level varies between Eco and Turbo riding modes.

All available riding modes can be freely combined in the smart system.
The bike manufacturer can activate up to four modes (in addition to the Off mode) and thus perfectly adapt them to the eBiker (provided changes have not been excluded by the bike manufacturer).
With the help of the individual riding modes, you can configure the Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo modes according to your needs via the eBike Flow app. You can adjust the support, the dynamics, the torque and the maximum speed.

Smart features

Individual riding modes

Adapt the riding mode to your needs with the eBike Flow app: You can fine-tune the Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo riding modes to give you either more support or range.

Here's how it works

eBike Lock with the smart system

Activating the eBike Lock function via the eBike Flow app lets you use your smartphone as a digital key. Because motor support can only be activated with your smartphone and the Bluetooth connection, your eBike holds no attraction for thieves.

Performance Line CX and the eBike Flow app

The eBike Flow app connects you with your eBike – and your eBike with the digital world. Use the app to control all functions of the smart system, which connects the drive unit, battery and control unit. It allows you to adapt the eBike exactly to your wishes, to expand it and to keep it up-to-date by easily downloading new features and services. You can conveniently install updates for your eBike via Bluetooth. This keeps your eBike up to date and continuously upgraded with new features. This is how you can take your riding enjoyment to even higher levels.

More torque

Increased to 85 Nm, the torque has a noticeable effect on riding behaviour. This accelerates faster, particularly at low cadences, and makes uphill starts much easier. The eMountain biker has more power available directly in difficult conditions.

Perfect control

The advanced eMTB mode ensures even better control on the trail, without having to switch riding modes. The motor responds much more sensitively to the rider's effort, especially in low gears, enabling an extremely sensitive start.

Extended Boost

Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones with ease, even uphill. The eMTB will respond with agility and ease to even the most technically demanding trails.

Sporting efficiency

Choosing a sporty riding style can take you further with Tour+ mode. The riding mode rewards your slightly higher effort with energy efficiency: If you pedal harder, the drive offers you correspondingly greater support. If, on the other hand, the going is fairly easy, you'll receive less assistance. This means that the battery is discharged more slowly. This will extend your rides, as well as your riding enjoyment.

Natural riding dynamism

The powerful 32-bit processor enables sensor signals to be processed at high speeds. Performance can be controlled precisely, offering eMountain bikers the best possible, perfectly dosed support in all riding situations.

Thermal stability

The drive unit is extremely efficient and, thanks to the completely maintenance-free 16-pin BLDC electric motor featuring the latest bar winding, it is characterised by great thermal stability. This ensures constant performance even under continuous load.

New Ideal comfort every time

E-Live Valve for the Performance Line CX from FOX with Bosch eBike Systems offers eMountain bikers electronically controllable suspension designed for maximum off-road comfort and fun. FOX E-Live Valve can be easily controlled via the Kiox on-board computer and is powered via the Bosch battery. Using a sophisticated system of sensors, the FOX E-Live Valve system determines the conditions of the terrain 1,000 times per second and adjusts the suspension fork and rear shock accordingly within fractions of a second.
