Whether you need to get to work in the morning or to a restaurant in the evening: Active Line brings the joy back to urban mobility - even in rush hour. Smooth, lightweight and quiet, it is the ideal way to get around town. Its controlled acceleration with barely noticeable pedal resistance at over 25 km/h or when switched off turns every trip into a delight, as well as making an elegant statement. The Active Line is a recipient of the Red Dot Design Award. The drive unit integrates perfectly into the bike's frame and its light weight completes the impressive package.

Award-winning design

Bosch sets new standards with flowing shapes and a pleasing linear design.

Clean eBike look

Thanks to its compact size, the Active Line drive unit allows improved integration within the bicycle frame.

Easy handling

Its modest weight and low centre of gravity provide for easy handling.

Carefree cruising

The innovative drive concept allows a very light drive unit, weighing only 2.9 kg.

Quiet cruising

A lightweight, quiet Bosch motor provides even more riding enjoyment without annoying extraneous noises.

Great riding sensation

The Active Line delivers moderate support while providing a particularly enjoyable riding sensation.

Smart riding experience

Feels great: Experience controlled acceleration with minimum pedal resistance when switched off or at over 25 km/h.

Relaxation on rides

Intelligent support: the multi-sensor drive unit concept takes more than 1,000 measurements per second to ensure a smooth power characteristic. The optional backpedal function helps make braking easier and more comfortable. 

Backpedal function

The Active Line is also available with a backpedal function that makes braking easier.

Crank shaft

With multi-tooth receiver

The pedal is secured on the crankshaft with the crank arm by means of a multi-tooth receiver.

Motor control

For controlling the drive system

The electronic control centre of the drive ensures smooth delivery of power, processing over 1,000 measured values per second.

Torque sensor

Detects the rider's own pedal power and passes this on to the motor control system

Alongside the cadence and speed sensor, this is the key component for determining riding behaviour.

Electrical Connections

For battery, sensors and light

The drive unit contains all the cable connections for the battery, display, sensors and third party components.
