Safety comes first

Risks and solutions

Risk:

Faults on the eBike

Lack of regular maintenance increases the safety risk.

Solution:

Specialist dealers can use the service interval display to set a regular service schedule for checking your eBike.

Risk:

Inadequate protection

eBiker who don't wear a helmet increase the risk of a head injury. Up to 70% of head injuries caused during accidents can be prevented by helmets. Only 60% of eBikers (up to 25 km/h) wear protective headgear while biking.

Solution:

A helmet protects against injury. In-mold helmets offer good protection. During manufacturing, the shock-absorbing hard foam is injected directly into the outer shell.

Risk:

Incorrect starting

Incorrect starting is a common cause of error with dangerous consequences.

Solution:

The automatic eShift solutions for hub gear systems ensure that you always start safely in the best starting gear. eShift always enhances riding comfort. The 3-sensor concept of Bosch drives measures torque, speed and acceleration more than 1,000 times per second and determines precisely what support you need in any particular situation. You experience gentle start-up and optimal acceleration.

Risk:

Sufficient energy

Some people interested in eBikes are sceptical that the energy provided by the eBike battery is actually sufficient for their purposes.

Solution:

Bosch batteries are among the most efficient on the market. Ranges of more than 100 kilometres are possible with a single battery charge. DualBattery, combining two Bosch batteries, offers energy content of up to 1,250 Wh for long distances or steep climbs. Our Range Assistant is worth visiting to calculate a typical range under various conditions.

Risk:

Feeling unsteady on the bike

Beginners and less experienced riders sometimes have difficulty with the ride characteristics of an eBike and the traffic rules.

Solution:

Many specialist dealers offer rider safety training courses for this purpose. The Bosch eBike Systems website also provides helpful pointers for beginners. You will find more information here.
