Today at Eurobike Bosch revealed plans for their new Smart Bike system. The new system consists of their new Flow app, control unit, display, battery and drive unit. Releasing now, the new system should be available by Christmas. This is a new system that’s not compatible with older units.
The smart system streamlines cockpit controls, benefitting from a new buttonless Kiox 300 display that’s coupled with a brand new LED control unit for ease of use. Away from the cockpit, the introduction of the PowerTube 750 battery, combined with Bosch’s class-leading Performance Line CX drive unit, pushes the boundaries of eBike range to its maximum for longer rides on roads, trails and paths alike.Bosch
The press release reads:
The eBike Flow app is the central connection to the eBike and the key to the connected biking
experience. Over-the-air updates always keep the eBike up to date and continuously enhance the eBike experience with new, innovative features. The app lets you customise riding modes, record activities completely automatically, and integrate fitness apps such as Apple Health.
The eBike Flow app bundles all important information on the home screen — from the connection status of the eBike to the next service appointment and the current charge status of the battery.
The LED Remote can be operated easily, comfortably and intuitively with the thumb. Using different
colours, the LEDs indicate the respective riding mode, which is easy to recognise while riding. Also practical for those who want to be on the road without a display when eBiking: The LED Remote is sufficient to control the eBike system and displays the most important information about the eBike, such as the current charge status and support level. The LED Remote is connected with the eBike Flow app via Bluetooth and thus the Internet.
Kiox 300 Display
The Kiox 300 display provides a clean eBike look on the handlebar and is easy to read in any riding situation. With the display, all relevant fitness data can be displayed to optimise your training. Through regular ‘over the air’ updates, Kiox 300 always stays current and thus promises a lot of fun on sporty rides or on the trail, including in the future. The buttonless colour display is controlled via the LED Remote and is connected to the eBike Flow app. Using the display holder, Kiox 300 can be ideally positioned on the handlebar according to the rider’s preference.
PowerTube 750 battery
The new flagship rechargeable battery for long and challenging rides. The PowerTube 750 offers the maximum range in the current Bosch eBike battery portfolio and is optimally designed for many metres of climbing and even longer distances. The lithium-ion battery can be integrated into the eBike frame and is characterised by a particularly high energy density at a weight of approx. 4.4 kilograms. The PowerTube 750 can be charged to 50% in just over two hours and fully in about six hours using the 4A Charger.
Performance Line CX drive unit
The powerhouse among the drives. The powerful Performance Line CX drive unit provides a maximum of 85 Nm of torque for a natural, dynamic and unique riding experience. In the eBike Flow app, the strength of the support, dynamics, maximum speed and maximum torque can be individually set for the respective riding modes and thus perfectly adapted to your own riding style.
In the future, eBikers will also be able to benefit from further developments in the area of theft protection. eBike models that are ConnectModule ready can be retrofitted with the ConnectModule in the future. This means, for example, that the eBike can trigger an acoustic alarm to deter thieves and, in the event of theft, be tracked in the eBike Flow app. In addition, further functions will follow that can
be used with the ConnectModule.
