Tips for safer eBiking
At Bosch eBike systems we create innovative and exciting mobility solutions and are committed to responsible eBiking. Our products are designed for people who want to get around in a relaxed, sustainable and above all safe manner.
There are lots of aspects that every rider should take into consideration before saddling up on their eBike.
Regular service checks are important to maintain the full functionality of your eBike.
Lack of protection
eBike riders who do not wear a helmet have a higher risk of head injury in the event of an accident.
First to the supermarket, then off to a café with friends and then out to a restaurant in the evening. Does your eBike have enough battery charge to complete all your plans?
Powerful energy sources
With the efficient Bosch eBike batteries, ranges of more than 60 miles can be achieved with one battery charge. For long distances or steep climbs, a spare battery can be taken along for the ride or you can opt directly for an eBike with DualBattery system. In addition, use the eBike range calculator before longer rides to find out how many miles your eBike battery will support you.
Tampering with your eBike by tuning it will not only endanger your own safety, but will also provoke stricter regulations for eBikes as well as future government bans.
Higher speed, more weight and a different handling experience - find out more on the small but important differences to riding conventional bicycles.
Unsafe on the bike
An eBike is more than just a bike, the electric support provides smooth acceleration. At first, the sudden boost in acceleration and handling characteristics of your eBike may be unfamiliar.
Training for a better feeling
Take your time to get used to your eBike and how it handles. In addition, many dealers offer helpful riding safety training. There are also tips for beginners on the Bosch eBike systems website. You can find out more here.
Whether on firm asphalt or slippery gravel tracks: anyone who has to brake sharply in unexpected situations needs safety and control.
The Bosch eBike ABS allows you to brake more safely and with more confidence. It can prevent the front wheel from locking and help prevent the wheels from skidding. This means that you stay more securely in the saddle even during spontaneous and hard braking – whether on firm asphalt or slippery gravel tracks.
Distractions in road traffic
Cyclists who get distracted are a risk to themselves and others. Typing on a smartphone in particular has a negative impact on riding behavior.
Relevant information and safer operation
With the SmartphoneGrip, you turn your smartphone into an eBike display. Connected to the control unit via Bluetooth, you can control the display on the eBike Flow app with both hands on the handlebar: This way you will be supported with important information during your ride and can ride more safely and with greater focus. However, the same thing always applies: keep your eye on the traffic and follow the rules.
eBikes are popular – unfortunately also with thieves. Anyone who is out and about on their eBike also wants to keep a good feeling they park it.
Additional theft protection for your eBike
In addition to a mechanical lock, you can improve the theft protection of your eBike with innovative products and features. For example, with eBike Alarm – the alarm function for your eBike. If a thief tries to tamper with your eBike, eBike Alarm reacts with deterrent alarm signals. If the thief doesn't give up and moves your eBike significantly, the tracking function will automatically activate and you will receive a message on your smartphone.
