Performance Line CX + Kiox + eMTB mode + PowerTube 500

Now there’s nothing to get in the way of uphill riding enjoyment

However steep the incline or technically demanding the trail – the Performance Line CX adds a new dimension to eMountain biking, enabling  you to reach new destinations. In conjunction with eMTB Mode, even the steepest incline becomes less daunting and the optimised modulation provides a more sporty start, unique dynamics and maximum performance on unpaved trails. With the PowerTube 500, you can experience the power of Uphill Flow into the high cadence range and benefit from sporty acceleration on long rides and up steep inclines. Enjoy the exhilarating feeling of Uphill Flow and experience unique riding enjoyment in the mountains. The stylish Kiox on-board computer is a reliable companion for your exciting eMTB experience.

Ideal support, even for short cranks

Whether you have long or short cranks, Bosch provides the correct support, according to the torque. Short cranks give you extra ground clearance for eMountain biking. Your specialist dealer will be able to make the corresponding adjustment.

Powerful walk assistance

Whether you encounter a carpet of roots or vertiginous mountain slopes: the new, powerful walk assistance offers reliable, uninterrupted support, even on steep gradients – always optimised to the walking speed.
