Bosch unveils new ‘smart system’ for e-bikes, including mobile app and remote
September 1, 2021
Bosch has unveiled an array of product updates for the coming seasons, including a new mobile app and a wireless remote control that increase the “digitalization” of bikes using the company’s drivetrain system. BRAIN
Bosch’s new “smart system” includes the eBike Flow app for smartphones. Bosch sees the app as the central connection to the e-bike. Among other things, it facilitates over-the-air system updates, including the addition of new features. The app lets riders customize riding modes, record activities automatically, and integrate fitness apps such as Apple Health.
The e-bike system can also be controlled without an additional display using the new LED remote control unit. Using different colors, the remote’s LEDs indicate the respective riding mode. The LED Remote displays the most important information such as the current battery charge status and support level. It connects to the eBike Flow app via Bluetooth.
Bosch’s newest computer display, the Kiox 300, shows and records fitness data and updates wirelessly. The button-less color display is controlled via the LED Remote and is connected to the eBike Flow app.
