Drive unit, rechargeable battery and on-board computer: Each of the three products features the highest technical quality, together ensuring maximum riding enjoyment. The individual components of the Bosch eBike system harmonize like a well-drilled team. The result is a perfectly coordinated combination for maximum efficiency, comfort and riding enjoyment.
In about 90 percent of eBikes, the drive unit sits in the centre of the frame. Most customers have good reason to choose a mid-drive motor:
The most advanced drive technology is particularly notable for the natural riding sensation it offers, thanks to the direct transmission of power to the chain. Compared to front or rear wheel motors, the mid-drive motor also scores highly for its balanced load distribution and centre of gravity. At the same time, the mid-drive motor offers good drive control, is compatible with all circuits and uses less energy, thanks to better efficiency. The secret behind the natural riding sensation is the innovative Bosch technology: the precisely calibrated sensor concept ensures perfectly coordinated motor support. Three sensors measure torque, speed and acceleration more than 1000 times per second, ensuring perfect interaction between the rider and eBike. The technology not only ensures riding enjoyment, but also the necessary level of safety: if the legal maximum speed is exceeded, the motor support will switch off automatically. Another advantage of the mid-drive motor is the compact design and low weight. The Bosch drive units are among the lightest and quietest eBike drives on the market. Harmonious integration in the frame design permits greater ground clearance and a lower Q factor.
The perfect companion for every rider: Bosch has developed four different on-board computers with the Purion and Intuvia, thereby addressing the individual needs of eBike riders.
The systems range from the compact Purion to the intuitively operated Intuvia: Bosch has the right on-board computer for every eBiker.
High mileage, long lifetime, light weight: rechargeable batteries from Bosch are efficient and durable power sources - packed in an ergonomically efficient design with easy handling for convenient charging directly on the eBike.
eBike rechargeable batteries from Bosch are the most modern on the market and are equipped with a battery management system.
The intelligent electronic battery management system permanently monitors the voltage, current, temperature and charge status of the cells. The system detects potential sources of error, protects against overloading and thus ensures maximum safety and a long service life.
Thanks to the use of modern lithium-ion technology, the batteries can be recharged any number of times, even for short periods, regardless of their charge status. The Bosch rechargeable batteries do not suffer from memory effect. Another plus: Even after long periods of storage, the battery can be used without recharging. The self-discharge of the battery is extremely low.
