Your smartphone on the handlebar
The easy way to transform your smartphone into an eBike display: Attach the SmartphoneGrip to the handlebar, insert your smartphone and open the eBike Flow app. Your smartphone will be charged via the SmartphoneGrip while the eBike Flow app reliably guides you to your destination.

At a glance
Riding modes via the Flow app
The Ride Screen shows you your speed, the charge level of the eBike battery and the remaining range.
Operate the eBike Flow app comfortably via the LED Remote or Mini Remote, enabling both hands to remain on the handlebars.
Whether you're on paved roads or surfaced paths, the SmartphoneGrip holds your smartphone firmly on the handlebar.
Safe operation on the road
While riding, you control the eBike Flow app via the LED Remote, which is connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth: With the "right" and "left" buttons, for example, you can easily switch between ride screen and navigation without taking your hand from the handlebar. This means that you can ride more safely while also maintaining full control of the display and your eBike. The navigation function reliably takes you to your destination with its clear map display and information on arrival time and distance.
On paved roads or surfaced forest and field paths*, the SmartphoneGrip holds the smartphone securely on the handlebar. The innovative and robust mount is suitable for all common smartphones with and without a case.** The back of your smartphone is protected by a rubberised surface; the charging socket and speakers are freely accessible.
*The SmartphoneGrip is not suitable for steps with a height of over 15 cm or for jumps.
**The supported dimensions of the smartphones used incl. camera bump and case are as follows: H: 6.8 –13 mm, W: 67 - 88 mm, L: 123 – 175 mm. Suitable for smartphones up to a total weight of 276 g incl. case. Flip covers and wallet cases are not supported.
Fast switching between different displays
Full modularity and free choice between displays: You can use your smartphone with the SmartphoneGrip or fix the Kiox 300 to the display mount. Kiox 300 is suitable for sporty use, while your smartphone is the ideal display for more relaxed rides, for example, through the city.
Informative charge display
On the left side of the SmartphoneGrip is an LED that indicates whether and how your smartphone is charging by means of different colours and light patterns. For example, if the LED is yellow, your smartphone is charging inductively using wireless technology.
Attach the SmartphoneGrip to the handlebar near the stem, where you have the best view of the display or where it seems best to you in terms of look and feel. Depending on where you want to position the SmartphoneGrip, different display interfaces are used.
The smart system offers a choice of different riding modes, these adapt the support from the eBike motor according to application and rider type.
*In eMTB mode, the level of support varies between Tour and Turbo riding modes.
**In Tour+ mode, the level of support varies between Eco and Turbo riding modes.
All the available riding modes can be flexibly combined on eBikes with the smart system. Exceptions in this case are Cargo mode and Race mode, which are only available for eBikes with the Cargo Line or the Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition. Specialist dealers can activate up to four modes (in addition to Off mode) and thus adapt them perfectly to individual eBikers (unless modifications have been excluded by the bicycle manufacturer). With the help of the individual riding modes, the Race, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, eMTB, Sport, Tour+, Tour and Eco modes can be configured according to individual needs via the eBike Flow app. The support, dynamics, maximum torque and maximum speed can be set within the specified limits. It's not possible to customise your riding mode on S-pedelecs.
Individual riding modes
You can fine-tune the Race, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, eMTB, Sport, Tour+, Tour and Eco riding modes to give you more support or to use less power.
eBike Lock with the smart system
Activating the eBike Lock function via the eBike Flow app lets you use your smartphone as a digital key. Because motor support can only be activated with your smartphone and Bluetooth connection, your eBike holds no attraction for thieves.
New Even better protected with eBike Alarm

Made possible by the ConnectModule and in interaction with eBike Lock, it expands the locking of the drive unit with a comprehensive alarm function. When you switch off your eBike, eBike Alarm is automatically activated and deactivated when you switch it back on. This means your eBike is optimally protected at all times - without you having to do anything.
The eBike Flow app connects you and your eBike – and your eBike to the digital world. You can use the app to control all functions of the smart system, which networks the drive unit, the battery and the control unit. It allows you to adapt the eBike to your needs, upgrade it and keep it up to date. You simply download new features and services. You can conveniently install updates for your eBike via Bluetooth. This keeps your eBike up to date and continuously upgraded with new features. This is how you can improve your riding experience.

Keeps your flow.
The new Bosch eBike ABS lets you brake more safely. It prevents your front wheel from locking or slipping. You remain safely in the saddle even during spontaneous braking – whether you are on firm asphalt or slippery gravel paths. Because every eBike is different, there is no one-size-fits-all ABS. Instead, there's the right ABS for your eBike type, supporting your braking process in the best possible way.
