For maximum smartphone operating time
COBI.Bike can charge your smartphone while you're on the move. In the version for conventional bicycles this is achieved by means of a powerful battery pack that can be charged using a USB plug.

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.

AmbiSense light system
The striking daytime running lights provide optimum visibility in city traffic. As soon as the sun goes down or you enter a tunnel, the system automatically switches on the main headlight thanks to ambient light sensors. The light can also be switched on manually using the app or a switch on the hub.
A light that knows when it's needed. The rear light is wirelessly integrated into the system and comes on automatically together with the front light as darkness falls. If required, the rear light can be quickly activated by means of a thumb controller. It can be removed in a single movement and charges using a micro-USB cable.
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).
When you press the bell button on the thumb controller, the built-in electronic bell rings to alert others to your presence. The sound mimics the sound and volume of a good bicycle bell.
For the city and beyond
A smart 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 thumb controller and voice output ensure that you can keep your hands on the handlebar and your eyes on the road.
A reliable companion on every trip
COBI.Bike has the stamina to cope with long trips - the battery pack and hub dynamo cable allow you to extend the battery life of your smartphone. On eBikes the power comes directly from the eBike battery. The dashboard shows you the latest weather forecast. The smart system also handles the monitoring and tracking of your routes.
Practically tailor-made for mountain bikes
The slim mount case (for iPhones) offers maximum security: Your smartphone sits securely on the handlebar. The integrated charging function ensures maximum battery life. COBI.Bike reliably guides you both online or offline, e.g. when discovering new trails. This even works if you prefer to keep your smartphone in your pocket.
