At a glance
Strong Cargo mode
Cargo mode is designed for the special requirements of eCargo bikes. It delivers maximum power – with 400% of your own power.
Safe and comfortable handling
Auto mode automatically adjusts the assistance while riding. When braking, the ABS brings you more safely to a halt.
Powerful 85 Nm
Up to 85 Nm drive your eCargo bike, so you can move heavy loads and climb hills effortlessly.
Transport your loads effortlessly to their destination: Whether you’re riding slowly on a steep incline or pedaling on flat ground, the 85 Nm of torque supports you powerfully and naturally thanks to the optimally tuned transmission concept.
Safe riding sensation
Master even difficult situations with confidence: The multi-sensor concept and sophisticated software enable consistent acceleration and give you a smooth, safe riding experience. The new Auto mode detects the characteristics of the environment and adjusts the level of support accordingly. You don’t have to switch between riding modes and can concentrate on the road.
Strong Cargo mode
With the Cargo mode specially designed for the Cargo Line you get the maximum support out of your eBike – 400% of your own power. In addition, the Cargo mode optimizes start-up behavior: Despite the high level of support and torque, your eCargo bike starts smoothly and pleasantly. Do you prefer a different dynamic or a different torque? In the eBike Flow app, you can adjust the Cargo mode to your needs with the slider.
eCargo bikes place enormous demands on the brake system. The Bosch eBike ABS provides faster, safer, and more accurate braking, even when fully loaded. This way you protect yourself, your load and other road users.
Bosch eBike ABS is only available in the following countries: all countries of the European Union, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Norway.
Smart Walk Assist
The Cargo Line Walk Assist helps you push your eCargo bike. Press and hold the minus key to activate Walk Assist. As soon as you push your eCargo bike, the motor support starts. In addition, the integrated Hill Hold function automatically prevents uncontrolled rolling back or downhill. You’re safe at all times, even on steep climbs, and start effortlessly.
Save battery energy and increase your range: If you exceed 20 mph during a ride, the electric motor and transmission automatically decouple – the eBike then rides very smoothly thanks to minimal pedaling resistance. Because the Cargo Line is also compatible with short pedal cranks, it helps prevent grounding, providing even more safety.
Keep a cool eBike: even under heavy load or heat, the Cargo Line effectively dissipates motor heat with its cooling fins. This way, your drive unit won’t overheat and you can go full throttle, even on long rides in the summer. The small dimensions of the Cargo Line and its magnesium casing reduce the weight of the drive unit to just 6.4 pounds. So your eBike is lighter, and you can control it even better.
Customize your riding modes
You can fine-tune the Race, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, eMTB, Sport, Tour+, Tour and Eco riding modes to give you either more support or range.
eBike Lock with the smart system
Activating the eBike Lock function once via the eBike Flow app lets you use your smartphone as a digital key. Since motor support can only be activated with your smartphone and the Bluetooth connection, your eBike is not attractive to thieves.
NewEven better protected with eBike Alarm
The eBike Alarm function is the next level for even more safety for your eBike. Enabled by the ConnectModule and in conjunction with eBike Lock, it extends the drive lockout to include a comprehensive alarm function. Turning off your eBike automatically arms eBike Alarm, which is deactivated again on switching on. So your eBike is optimally protected at all times – without you having to do anything.
The eBike Flow app connects you to your eBike – and your eBike to the digital world. You use the app to control all the functions of the smart system, which connects the drive unit, battery, and control unit. It allows you to customize the eBike exactly to your preferences, enhance it, and keep it up to date. You simply download new features and services. You can conveniently install updates for your eBike via Bluetooth. This keeps your eBike up to date and continuously upgraded with new functions. This is how you can take your riding enjoyment to even higher levels.
eBike Alarm deters potential thieves with an automatic alarm and enables location tracking if the worst happens. This is made possible by the ConnectModule.
Use your smartphone as a digital key that automatically activates and deactivates the motor support on your eBike – for additional theft protection.
