What is an eBike system?

The electric drive of the eBike, the display and matching control unit, and the battery are the components that make up an electric bike. They are supplemented by digital services and apps. In a system, all components communicate with each other and adjust to your particular riding situation. So you ride more efficiently, more comfortably and have an incredible time doing so!

System components explained

Display – important information in your field of vision

The display and control unit allow you to view and select various information – for example, how fast you are going or approximately how many miles you can still ride with the current battery charge. In addition, it shows you which riding mode you have currently selected.

Rechargeable battery – the energy source

The eBike battery is where the eBike gets the energy to power you along wherever you go. It supplies the drive unit with power, and has a decisive influence on the range. That’s why there are eBike batteries for different requirements, and also for different types of installation and mounting.

Drive unit – the motor of your eBike

The eBike motor, also called drive unit, gives you additional, electrical support depending on your effort, speed and the selected riding mode. Our drives are optimized for the different eBike types to provide the appropriate support. Bosch drive units are pedal-assist only, Class 1 (up to 20mph), which means the motor amplifies your pedal power.

Apps & portal - digital extensions for your components

Apps and their digital features support you before, during and after the ride and enhance your eBike experience. Whether for route planning or navigation, range hints, important training data or parking your eBike more safely: You get an incredible experience that's all about fun and functionality. 

Which Bosch eBike systems are available?

With Bosch eBike Systems you have the choice between two systems – you can find out what advantages they offer and which one suits you best here.

The smart system is the beginning of a new kind of digital eBike future: In the latest generation of Bosch eBike Systems, all components are fully interconnected. The eBike Flow app is the linchpin: This gives you a constant flow of new features for your eBike. You simply transfer updates for your components via Bluetooth. This way, your eBike remains up to date even after purchase, and continues to evolve.

The Bosch eBike System 2 was developed for unlimited riding: It impresses with a wide range of components and functions – so everyone can find the right display, the right drive and the appropriate battery. Combined with the eBike Connect app and the eBike Connect online portal, you can plan your routes in the comfort of your own home, creating a personalized eBike experience with every ride.
