The ideal drive for every application

Controlled or powerful support - the main thing is it feels natural. Drive units from Bosch eBike Systems give you a unique riding sensation. Three sensors measure pedal power, cadence, and speed at a rate of over 1,000 times per second. This enables organic interaction between you and your eBike. The drive unit of the smart system, the new system generation of Bosch eBike Systems, also ensures a very personal eBike experience. The smart system combines high-quality eBike components with digital functions, is fully connected and always up to date thanks to regular updates over the air.
