Risks and solutions
Faults on the eBike
Lack of regular maintenance increases the safety risk.
The specialist dealer sets a regular service schedule with the aid of the service interval display.
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.
A helmet protects against injury. In-mold helmets offer good protection. During manufacturing, the shock-absorbing hard foam is injected directly into the outer shell.
Incorrect starting is a common cause of error with dangerous consequences.
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.
