Performance Line is the most versatile drive system from Bosch. Whether you're exploring the countryside, commuting for work or enjoying a leisurely spin, this system offers the precise support you need when pedaling. Performance Line is offered in three variants.

Performance Line Cruise provides as much as 65 Nm of torque to a maximum speed of 20 mph, with an impressively natural pedaling sensation, even on challenging uphill terrain.

Performance Line Sport is geared toward high pedal cadence cycling. The drive unit only weighs 7 pounds and continues to accelerate smoothly at speeds greater than 20 mph, up to a maximum speed of 28 mph. 

Performance Line Speed helps you reach higher velocities easily and cover longer distances quickly. This 85-Nm drive unit is designed for eBikes that are capable of a maximum speed of 28 mph.
