For a feeling of safety
Intelligent additional theft protection
Park your eBike and enjoy some carefree downtime: When out and about with an eBike, riders need to know that they can park it safely and securely. A mechanical lock provides basic protection from theft for the eBike, while the eBike Lock smart feature is the ideal complement.
You can easily use the eBike Lock function via the eBike Flow app on eBikes with the smart system. After a one-off installation, the smartphone acts as your digital key for deactivating motor support. Recognition uses Bluetooth technology, so your smartphone can stay in your pocket. Short acoustic signals, lights and symbols on the LED Remote, display or smartphone indicate whether eBike Lock is active and thus motor support is deactivated. eBike Lock in the smart system offers free, additional theft protection and greater security. If you lose your smartphone, you can simply log into the eBike Flow app with your account on another smartphone.
Simple and convenient
The eBike Lock function only needs to be installed once via your eBike Flow app. In the future, when you switch on your eBike, a Bluetooth check takes place to establish whether your smartphone is nearby with the appropriate digital key. Only then is motor support enabled. Your smartphone can stay in your pocket when you turn your eBike on and off.
Never lose your key
The eBike Lock function turns your smartphone into a digital key for your eBike. Motor support can only be activated if this is detected via Bluetooth when you switch on the eBike. eBike Lock is linked to your personal account. If you lose your smartphone, you can deactivate eBike Lock with another smartphone and the eBike Flow app.
Huge benefits with minimal effort
The eBike Lock function is free of charge for the smart system. This additional anti-theft protection is a supplement to the mechanical lock and will help ensure that your eBike will remain safe and sound.
The eBike Lock function is the first step towards even more comprehensive theft protection. Thanks to the smart system, these and other innovative features will also be available for your eBike in the future - all over-the-air.
Clear signals for a safe feeling
Acoustic signals from the drive unit and symbols on the LED remote, the display or your smartphone indicate whether your eBike is secured by the automatic theft protection. The acoustic signals can be switched on or off via the eBike Flow app. The visual and acoustic signals let you know immediately whether your eBike is secured or ready to go.
Kiox 300 and eBike Lock
For eBikes with the smart system, eBike Lock is linked to your Bosch ID and stored on your smartphone in the eBike Flow app. The Kiox 300 display uses a symbol to show you whether your eBike is locked.
LED Remote and eBike Lock
The white LEDs of the LED Remote flash briefly to confirm that eBike Lock is active when switched off. When the remote is switched on, the LEDs flash again, indicating that the eBike is still locked and searching for a key.
eBike Flow app and eBike Lock
If you have activated eBike Lock once via the Flow app, motor support for your eBike will automatically deactivate when you turn it off. To unlock, all you need to do is have your smartphone with you when you turn on the eBike. Your eBike confirms locking and unlocking with short acoustic and light signals. You can also see whether the eBike Lock function is activated on your eBike by checking the home screen or the bike settings.
The eBike Lock premium function for the Bosch eBike System 2 is the ideal complement to a mechanical lock. Thanks to eBike Lock, motor support is deactivated with the removal of the display Kiox or Nyon, making the eBike less attractive to thieves because it would be much harder to sell on. The Lock function is only deactivated when the same display is reattached to the eBike, which reactivates motor support. The display shows the Lock status and the acoustic signal is heard when activating or deactivating motor support through the Lock function. There is a one-time set up by means of the eBike Connect app, involving an in-app purchase.
The eBike Lock is activated/deactivation by simply swiping up or down on the display.
One glance is all it takes
A lock icon in the display's status bar indicates whether the Lock function is enabled. This lets you know immediately that your eBike is not receiving motor support at present.
As with the central locking on a car, audible feedback tells you whether eBike Lock has been activated or deactivated. The acoustic signals can be switched on and off in the eBike Connect app.
If eBike Lock is activated, it is no longer possible to ride the eBike with motor support. The eBike becomes less attractive to thieves because it offers no riding enjoyment nor can it be resold in this condition.
Kiox and eBike Lock
The clever digital supplement to a mechanical lock: The eBike Lock premium function, which is subject to a modest charge, turns the Kiox display into the key for your eBike with Bosch eBike System 2. This function lets you deactivate motor support by disconnecting the display. The electronic lock only unlocks again when the same display is reconnected.
Nyon and eBike Lock
Worry-free parking: Nyon can also act as a key for the eBike with the eBike Lock premium function in Bosch eBike System 2. Removing the display deactivates motor support, rendering the eBike unattractive to thieves. A useful additional digital security device that complements the classic lock.
The 'Lock' premium function in conjunction with the Kiox and the new Nyon (since model year 2021) is compatible with the Bosch Active Line and Active Line Plus drives from model year 2018 onwards and with the Performance Line, Cargo Line, Performance Line Speed and Performance Line CX from model year 2020 onwards.
