The smart solution for integrated gear shifting.

eShift

The smart solution for integrated gear shifting.

The innovative gear-shifting concept integrated into your eBike System's gear unit delivers faster gear changing and a better ride, thereby ensuring not only a more relaxed and comfortable riding experience, but better safety along the way – so you can fully concentrate on eBiking.

This integrative electronic gear shifting solution offers more riding comfort and safety, and – due to continuously optimal gear ratios – even better range. Three variants are available, each designed for a different type of riding: Active Line, Performance Line and Performance Line CX. All were developed in technological partnership with cycling component brands NuVinci, Shimano and SRAM. All three together meet the wide range of needs of eBikers. Whether while riding over diverse off-road terrain or through stop-and-go city traffic, eShift makes eBiking an even smarter way to get around.

Three eShift variants

NuVinci

eShift with NuVinci Optimized™ Harmony H|Sync™

eShift with NuVinci Harmony is a cadence-based, continuously variable automatic gear shifting system for eBikes. Whether rapidly accelerating down a slope or climbing a hill, the continuously variable gear hub ensures that the rider will continue to pedal at his or her selected cadence of between 30 and 100 revolutions per minute. If at any point a faster or slower cadence is preferred, the cadence can be adjusted by pushing a button.

Shimano Di2

eShift with Shimano Di2

Fast, sporty and efficient, eShift with Shimano Di2 shifts the gears of your pedelec as though it were a sports car. Changing gears quickly and dynamically is simply a matter of tapping the Shimano shift paddle. When in manual mode, the shift recommendation function helps the rider to optimally utilize the battery's stored energy. When braking to a stop, the Auto-Downshift function, automatically selects the rider's pre-defined starting gear.

SRAM DD3 Pulse

eShift with SRAM DD3 Pulse

The speed-dependent eShift with SRAM DD3 Pulse combines a 3-speed hub with a manual derailleur system. The gear hub selects the gear speed automatically according to velocity. Fine adjustments are made manually via the derailleur system. Since the hub automatically down-shifts whenever the rider brakes to a halt, starting up is markedly easier.

The eShift integrated shifting solution for eBikes not only makes gear shifting easier, it enhances safety, since it precludes having to operate any gear shifting components on the handlebars while riding. eShift also optimizes range, because it ensures that the gear speed is always within the optimum gear ratio.
