Smartphone usage, charging and control

Mount case or universal mount?

The slim mount case fits the iPhone X and 6/7/8 in both standard and large sizes. Simply place the iPhone in the case and slide it onto the hub until it engages. Practical when riding in high winds and bad weather: The optional protection cover.
For all Android and iPhone smartphones measuring up to 78 mm in width including cover, there is the flexible universal mount: it can be firmly bolted to the hub and will keep your smartphone absolutely safe by means of a spring-loaded grip - even when riding in difficult terrain.

The basis for your smartphone cockpit

Your smartphone sits absolutely safely on your hub, turning it into a modern bike cockpit. Wireless operation using Bluetooth technology via the eBike Remote on the handlebar. You can still use the eBike Remote to control the bell, light and assistance level of your eBike. Practical: When conditions are more challenging (e.g. on downhill stretches), you can easily remove your smartphone from the hub and stow it in your pocket.

For maximum smartphone operating time

COBI.Bike can charge your smartphone while you're on the move. The power for the front light and charging function comes directly from the eBike battery.

COBI.Bike for eBikes can be easily attached to the mount for the on-board computer. If needed, you can swap it at any time for the Intuvia or Nyon on-board computer. You can control your eBike in the usual way using the existing Bosch control unit. 

Clever functions at a press of the thumb

A clear overview at all times

The dashboard with its pared-back design displays all important information in a clear and concise way while you're cycling: e.g. speed, distance, altitude, weather or fitness and performance data. The dynamic performance indicator shows just how much power you are producing.

Navigation made easy

An eBike Remote  gives you control over all functions at all times: The rotating navigation menu gives you intuitive and instant access to the main COBI.Bike functions – for even more fun and safety on your bike.

Direct playback for your favourite sounds  

COBI.Bike has a user-friendly audio control: You can use the eBike Remote to choose what you want to hear while riding. From Spotify and audio books to podcasts. The eBike Remote allows you to you start, pause or skip tracks directly from the handlebar.

Making and receiving calls

Want to give someone a quick call? No problem! You can easily select contacts from the contact list on your smartphone using the eBike Remote. Of course, you can also answer calls with a push of a button on the eBike Remote. 

Effective and healthy training  

COBI.Bike gives you permanent feedback on your fitness levels: Bluetooth sensors make it possible to display real-time data such as cadence, speed, heart rate, elevation, power or calories consumption – or to have them read out by voice output. Apple Health, Google Fit, Strava and komoot can be used to store your trips automatically.

Perfect connection between bike and smartphone

COBI.Bike is the perfect fusion of smartphone and bike. Thanks to smart connectivity, you can also stay connected with life and friends while cycling: You have your music and contacts at your fingertips while on the move, track your fitness, share routes, or rely on the navigation system to guide you to your destination. Updates and new features keep the award-winning system up to date – ensuring even more fun, comfort and safety on the bike and in the digital world.

Intelligent alarm function

Additional protection against bicycle thieves: Simply activate the alarm function in the App – COBI.Bike will react to suspicious movements with a multi-level alarm (increasing volume and light signal).  

Electronic bell

When you press the bell button on the eBike Remote, the built-in electronic bell rings to alert others to your presence. The sound mimics the sound and volume of a good bicycle bell.

Secure hub

Once you have connected your smartphone to COBI.Bike, this connection is secure. As you approach your bike with your smartphone, COBI.Bike will automatically switch on.

For the city and beyond

An automatic light, electronic bell and alarm function will keep you safe on city streets. The integrated navigation system ensures that you take the fastest, quietest or simply your favourite route. The eBike Remote and voice output ensure that you can keep your hands on the handlebar and your eyes on the road.
