Relaxing Auto mode
Make the ride on your eBike even more enjoyable with Auto mode.

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.
