Supported gear shifting, relaxed riding
Optimal gear shifting
Shift gears precisely or ride in the correct gear automatically, eShift makes gear shifting super easy. A riding sensation that is a pleasure to get used to.
Keep a clear head
Whether on short or long routes, in hectic city traffic or on trips into the countryside, efficient gear shifting is always a relief.
Change gears even when you’re pedalling hard. eShift takes care of the perfect timing during gear shifting.
Comfort at all times while on the move
The electric eShift gear shifting solution makes gear changes easier, more efficient and more comfortable. Shift yourself or let eShift change gear based on your cadence. In cooperation with experts in shifting systems, Bosch eBike Systems has developed different variants for hub or derailleur gear systems. These briefly "throttle" the motor during the shifting process - for smooth gear changes.
Whether you are commuting to work, transporting heavy goods or riding in the city: The "self-shift" version of the eShift aid provides you with electric support during gear shifting. You shift and eShift changes gears at the optimal moment based on your pedal position. The motor support is suspended for fractions of a second, you simply continue to pedal. Enjoy the ride – gear changes are smoother and become a side issue.
Shift yourself and experience smooth, perfectly tuned gear changes. With eShift, the reliable hub gear system from Rohloff always shifts at the optimal time, the motor support is briefly interrupted for this purpose. This allows you to change gears, even when pedalling hard. The shift recommendations in the Bosch Kiox 500, Kiox 300 and Intuvia 100 displays help you select the right gear.

Auto-downshift makes life easier
When you come to a standstill, eShift automatically changes to a starting gear. As soon as you ride off again, the gear shifting solution gets you on the move again with optimal support.
Help for traffic light starts
On bikes with hub gear systems, gears can even be changed while the bike is stationary. This allows you, for example, to stop more easily at traffic lights with your fully loaded eCargo bike.
Developed with strong partners
The electric gear shifting solution was developed by Bosch eBike Systems in cooperation with partners Rohloff and 3x3. As a result, eShift is optimally matched to your gear shifting systems.
Ride at a leisurely or fast pace - but in complete comfort because you don't have to change gears yourself. Just set the desired cadence in the eBike Flow app or on the display and eShift automatically selects the appropriate gears. The auto-downshift function increases comfort even more: while you come to a standstill, eShift already reacts and ensures that you only have to pedal lightly when you start again – so you receive optimal support.
The optimal cadence
Leisurely riding, so you needn't worry about the range? We recommend a cadence of around 50 revolutions per minute (rpm). You want to get from A to B fast? You’ll optimally reach your destination at a cadence of around 65 rpm. You’re looking for a sporty challenge on your eBike ride? Our recommendation is a cadence of around 80 rpm.
Automatic gear shifting with enviolo
Set your desired cadence in the eBike Flow app or on the Bosch display Kiox 500 or Kiox 300 and the continuously variable enviolo gear shifting system with eShift responds fully automatically. This means that you never pedal too hard or lightly – even on inclines – and you always ride in the right gear with an even cadence.
Auto-downshift makes life easier
When you come to a standstill, eShift automatically changes to the starting gear. You can set how much force is required for starting in the enviolo app. The gear shifting solution supports you optimally when restarting.
Help for traffic light starts
For fully loaded eCargo bikes with hub gear systems, eShift gives you significantly more control. You can, for example, effortlessly stop at traffic lights and stay relaxed, even in changing riding situations.
In order to transfer the eShift advantages to automatic gear shifting systems as well, Bosch eBike Systems has collaborated with its partner enviolo. As a result, eShift is perfectly matched to its gear shifting systems.
