BOSCH 

 

eBikes inspire and drive our mobility and are one of the most agile, comfortable and simply clever means of transportation of our time. They positively affect our health, the environment and society.

 

The most modern components and a high degree of design flexibility offered by the Bosch drive systems form the foundation for bicycle manufacturers’ diverse palette of products – whether they be full suspension, mountain, trekking, city or touring bikes.

DRIVE UNIT

 

– the heart of the system.

 

It is located in the bottom bracket and the cranks are attached to it, hence it is referred to as mid-drive system, and it houses the motor, electronic controller and sensors.

 

Three sensors measure pedalling power, cadence, and speed more than 1000 times per second. This enables the rider and the eBike to interact with each other organically.

 

The drive unit of the Bosch eBike system is available in the Performance CX, Performance Speed and Cruise variants and as Active Cruise.

SPECIALIZED TURBO 

 

Specialized took the unusual step of developing its own e-bike battery and worked closely with motor manufacturer BROSE to produce a custom motor. The result is a totally integrated frame, motor, and battery that you won’t be able to buy from anyone else.

 

The battery is built into the downtube which gives the bike a very clean and sleek look.The Brose-derived 250w motor feeds from the bottom bracket area where it forms an integral part of the bike’s chassis.

 

Three different battery options are offered, the maximum one offering a range of 75km (47 miles), though this estimate is based upon a rider using the medium assist or Sport setting. Accessed through an Android or Apple phone, the Specialized Mission Control app is able to customize the level of assistance offered for all three of the bike’s assistance settings, those being: Eco, Sport and Turbo. A switch at the left hand side of the handlebar lets you cycle through the available assistance levels.

BionX 

 

BionX e-bike systems make it easy for you to turn nearly any bicycle into a powerful and efficient electric bike.

 

BionX e-bike technology is intuitive and easy-to-use. By adding a few more kilograms to your bicycle, the BionX system works seamlessly with you as you pedal. The control processor continuously analyzes your torque input and feeds that information to the motor, which applies electric assist in proportion to how hard you are pedalling. The harder you pedal, the more torque the system senses, and the more electric assist you get.

 

BionX systems can be applied to many different kinds of bikes and trikes – from a standard hybrid or mountain bike to handcycles and cargo bikes. If the frame has a 135mm rear hub spacing, and enough room for a battery, it most likely will fit a BionX system.
