Bosch Powered Electric Bikes
Bosch performance systems power electric bikes using an efficient, responsive mid-drive motor which generates up to 50% more torque than typical hub motors.
Bosch Powered Electric Bikes
A new cycling experience
This is the new cycling, the new riding experience. This is ebiking: Electrical energy supports muscle power during pedaling. With the drive system developed by Bosch eBike Systems, tail winds become the norm and steep becomes flatter.
Perfect pedaling support for every situation — At the press of a button the motor provides just the right support demanded by the terrain. The three complementary components of drive unit, battery, and on-board computer form a surprisingly simple and intuitive drive system.
European style eBikes make a difference — Within a short period of time, Bosch has become the market leader for ebike drive systems, contributing greatly to the success of ebikes as an environmentally friendly and healthy type of sports equipment as well as a means of transportation.
Welcome to a new era of mobility – for commuters, athletes, enthusiasts, trailblazers, and everyone for which an active life and the environment are near and dear.
The Performance Drive Unit creates a noticeable but homogeneous boost that produces pronounced power for agile, sporty pedelec riding. The 3-sensor concept for power, cadence, and speed provides 1000 sensor measurements per second for optimized power and for a unique riding experience. Durable, maintenance-free and low in vibration and noise, the Performance Drive Unit also impresses with shift detection and secure chain routing for smooth shifting and less wear.
With the on-board computer Intuvia, the Bosch eBike System has a versatile controller that is very easy to read even in sunlight. There is also a separate button pad on the handlebar for ease of switching between the five riding modes and reviewing information such as speed, distance, time and range.
