Whether for navigation or route planning via komoot, whether with range information or important training data: You are always sure of getting there and can enjoy your ride to the fullest.
Riding fun and fitness
Bicycling keeps you in shape; riding an eBike even more so. Whether it's elevation or pulse, speed or cadence, you can have your performance automatically recorded and evaluated using various apps. Use your favourite apps such as Strava and Apple Health or Google Fit to monitor your riding performance and share your progress with friends.
The new eBike Flow app is the control centre for your connected eBike experience. Use the app to control all functions of the smart system, which connects the control unit, display, battery and drive unit. The app allows you to adapt the eBike, to expand it and to keep it up to date by easily downloading new features and services, which are installed using Bluetooth. This enhances riding fun even more.
eBike Alarm is the alarm function for your eBike: Used in conjunction with eBike Lock, the Flow+ premium service offers even more comprehensive additional protection against theft. Once set up, eBike Alarm is automatically activated as soon as you turn off your eBike. In the event of attempted theft, eBike Alarm initially reacts with acoustic signals and illuminated LEDs. If your eBike is moved significantly, you will receive a message on your smartphone, the tracking function starts and you can track the position of your eBike in the eBike Flow app*.
*The eBike Flow app can be downloaded from the relevant app store at no additional cost. The eBike Flow app can only be used after prior registration and conclusion of a separate user agreement with Robert Bosch GmbH, Bosch eBike Systems.
Protect your eBike with the additional, free eBike Lock theft protection. The eBike Lock function only needs to be installed once via your eBike Flow app. When you switch it on, the eBike checks whether your smartphone is nearby via Bluetooth. Only then does it enable the motor support. You can also optionally unlock your eBike manually with your smartphone using a button on the home screen. You can also set up your Kiox 300 or Kiox 500 as a key for your eBike. When you remove the display from the mount, your eBike is additionally protected by eBike Lock. When you reinsert it, you activate motor support and can ride off. Acoustic signals from the drive unit and symbols on the LED Remote, the display or your smartphone indicate whether your eBike is secured by the eBike Lock.
Select the route profile that suits your riding situation – such as daily rides, leisure rides or eMTB trails to get perfectly matched route suggestions. The navigation, with a map display specially adapted to the route profiles, makes it easier for you to find your way: In the city, for example, through buildings in 3D view. Detailed route information informs you about features such as elevation and route characteristics, additional notes on the map mark important points such as bicycle retailers or charging stations. While riding, you control the navigation via LED Remote while your smartphone is held securely on the handlebar by the SmartphoneGrip. Thanks to the ergonomic design of the LED Remote, both your hands always remain on the handlebar.
Individual riding modes and customisation
With the eBike Flow app, you can customise your eBike precisely for your needs. Adapt the Race, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, eMTB, Sport, Tour+, Tour and Eco riding modes individually. Experience more support for a particularly challenging ride or extend the battery life by reducing the torque. You can set the level of support, the dynamics, the amount of torque and the maximum speed simply by moving the slide control in the eBike Flow app (it's not possible to customise riding modes on S-pedelecs).
You can also customise the Kiox 300 or Kiox 500 displays: The riding data and sequence of the existing screens can be adjusted directly in the app in order to adapt them to your riding style or route. You can even set up a new display with the required information quickly and easily. You can choose between layouts with one, two or three tiles. In total, there are over 30 different items of information you can choose from to see on your display.
Track your ride and fitness data as soon as you get started. If desired, the Activity Tracking for iPhone users can also sync all data automatically with Apple Health. When you take a break, the recording stops automatically.
Use the Home screen to gain a quick overview of all important data. Whether it's the battery status, remaining range, distance travelled or the next service appointment, the home screen clearly shows everything you need to know with continuously updated eBike data.
Connect your eBike Flow app with other applications. You can, for example, share ride data from your recorded activities with Apple Health. Linking them provides you with additional information about your fitness and the eBike experience.
Adjust the most important settings for your pedelec: Here you will find information on all the components connected to your eBike and can view the serial numbers of the motor or battery, for example. In addition, you can adjust in the settings for how long the pedelec must be idle before activity tracking is automatically stopped, or you can reset the data for calculating the range.
