Exclusive Race mode
Specially designed for eMTB racing, Race mode is exclusive to the Performance Line CX Race.

Already popular in eMTB mode, Extended Boost is also available in Race mode – this time with even more of a kick. It helps you to easily negotiate large rocks and complex tree roots. A precision riding technique is required to control the energetic response and power of Race mode.The mode was developed based on the expertise of successful eBike athletes.
85 Nm of powerful acceleration
With a maximum torque of up to 85 Nm, the Performance Line CX Race delivers rapid acceleration – from a standing start, across challenging stretches and obstacles, and through tight corners and hairpin bends. Pedal power is instantly converted into traction. Even at high cadences of more than 120 rpm, the high-performance motor provides powerful support. You can go all out, tackling long distances and fast sprints – the ideal conditions for personal bests on challenging routes.
Lightweight and compact construction
The Performance Line CX Race weighs a meagre 6.1 lbs. This makes it the lightest of all Bosch drive units. With the weight of your eBike at a minimum, you have more control up and downhill, more fun doing jumps, and an easier time carrying or pushing the bike. The sleek and sporty frame makes for optimal handling and an agile ride.
The housing of the Performance Line CX Race has a high-quality graphite grey finish and the logo and accent colours set it apart from other drive units. The slim design and special surface finish underline the robust, sporty and powerful character of the drive unit.
Hill hold on challenging courses
The smart walk assistance Hill Hold function prevents your eBike from rolling backwards on extreme slopes and unrideable sections. On difficult and strenuous ascents, pushing your eMTB becomes so much easier – and your progress a whole lot faster. On particularly tight and steep bends, you can use hill hold in a more targeted way to control the movement of the eMTB, for example.
