Bosch drive systems:
In 2010, Bosch eBike Systems presented its first drive system for eBikes. Both the market and the eBike design have developed rapidly over the past 10 years: from the step-through model to the mountain bike - virtually all bicycle types are available electrified these days. At the same time, the system components have become increasingly seamlessly integrated in the bicycle design. This development is far from over: With the eBike Design Vision, Bosch eBike Systems presents the integration of its components in a way that provides the impetus for the eBike design of the future.
Impetus for the eBike of the future
Design integration of the Bosch components
The Concept Bike is designed as an Urban Sports Cruiser - its carbon frame with fully integrated front and rear suspension offers maximum comfort for city adventures, commuter trips and off-road trails. The Bosch drive system merges with the frame and handlebar to form one unit in this design concept. The perfect integration of the Performance Line CX, the PowerTube 625, the new Nyon on-board computer and the Bosch eBike ABS make the eBike Design Vision a visual experience.
Performance Line CX
The Performance Line CX is fully incorporated in the white carbon frame structure that surrounds it. Side cooling channels in the frame produce the necessary "cooling effect" for the powerful, dynamic drive while riding.
Battery incorporated in the frame
The PowerTube 625 is integrated in the downtube and can be removed for charging. the battery cover tapers onto the drive unit, forming a single visual unit and reinforcing the clear edge between white and black areas. Sophisticated design aspects reduce the volume and give the Concept Bike a particularly dynamic look.
Fully integrated cockpit
The carbon handlebar unit also has a clean, linear design. The new fully connected Nyon on-board computer is particularly nicely incorporated in the middle of the cockpit. Even the remote for the on-board computer and the two brake levers visually form a single unit with the black handlebar. The cables and hydraulic hoses of the brake system run inside the cockpit structure - so that nothing detracts from the design and the shape.
Elegant design solution
The eBike Design Vision is also equipped with the Bosch eBike ABS. The ABS unit is hidden behind the front luggage rack and fits elegantly into the overall look.
"Our aim in developing the eBike Design Vision is to show what is already possible today when it comes to functional design integration and investigate where the journey might take us in the future."
