Safety comes first
Risks and solutions
Distraction in traffic
Distracted bicyclists are a risk to themselves and their environment. Entering text on a smartphone is particularly negative to riding behaviour.
Bosch offers the Nyon here. When the on-board computer receives a new SMS, a pop-up notification appears on the display, letting the eBiker keep both hands on the handlebar while the smartphone remains safely in the pocket. At the next stop, the rider can read and reply to the message on the mobile.
eBiker who don't wear a helmet increase the risk of a head injury. Up to 70% of head injuries caused during accidents can be prevented by helmets. Only 60% of eBikers (up to 25 km/h) wear protective headgear while biking.
The 3-sensor concept of Bosch drives measures torque, speed and acceleration more than 1,000 times per second and determines precisely what support the rider needs in the particular situation. You experience gentle start-up and optimal acceleration. With the automatic eShift solutions for hub gear systems, you always start safely in the best starting gear. eShift always enhances riding comfort.
Some people interested in eBikes are sceptical that the energy provided by the eBike battery is actually sufficient for their purposes.
Bosch batteries are among the most efficient on the market. Ranges of more than 100 kilometres are possible with a single battery charge. DualBattery, combining two Bosch batteries, offers energy content of up to 1,000 Wh for long distances or steep climbs. Our Range Assistant is worth visiting to calculate a typical range under various conditions.
