Safety is a decisive factor for eBike riders and their environment. The world's first production-ready eBike ABS now enables controlled and stable braking, even under difficult conditions. Bosch has been an expert in ABS systems and a market leader in motorbike safety systems for over 40 years. The eBike ABS was developed in the basis of the already established ABS motorcycle. Your safety is enhanced through the combination of front wheel ABS and rear wheel lift control. The pressure at the front brake is regulated during difficult braking manoeuvres and stabilises the riding situation – an advantage particularly during trekking and city riding. Enjoy extended sporty rides, the cycle to work or a cruise in the country with added safety.
ABS for Performance Line Cruise and Speed
With selected fleet partners, riders have been out on Germany roads since Spring 2018 with the first eBikes to be equipped with anti-lock braking systems (ABS). Bosch eBike ABS is initially being used for the Performance Line Cruise and Speed in combination with Intuvia on trekking and city bikes with 28 inch tyres.
Pedelecs with Bosch eBike ABS will be available for purchase from autumn 2018. As an expert with over 40 years of experience in ABS and market leader in motorbike safety systems, Bosch is now applying its expertise to pedelecs. Long-term Bosch partner Magura is providing full support as a development partner for brake technologies.
"The introduction of such a system can sustainably increase traffic safety"

Development of the lighter, smaller ABS 10 for motorcycles, now for all vehicle classes and markets
In the team for greater safety.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) from Bosch reduces the risk of eBikers flying over the handlebars or skidding. The ABS consists of the system control unit, a separate light and the wheel speed sensors combined with newly developed CMe ABS brakes from Magura. The 800g anti-lock system is automatically activated from 6 km/h.
