press release

Stuttgart/Reutlingen – With Nyon Bosch eBike Systems is striking out in a new direction. At Eurobike 2013 the company is presenting the first multifunctional on-board eBike computer. Nyon is an all-in-one eBike control, navigation system and fitness trainer device and even performs smartphone functions. It can be used to read text messages from a smartphone on the eBike or to remote control the mobile phone's music player. “This is the first time an on-board eBike device has provided many useful functions that only several individual devices can otherwise offer,” says Claus Fleischer, Head of the Bosch eBike Systems product division. “Nyon also offers on a brilliant 4.3-inch colour display a convincing graphic environment that is both customisable and easy to use.” Its modern design won it this year's Red Dot Award for product design. From Spring 2014 several bicycle brands will offer Bosch Performance Line eBikes with Nyon. From the 2015 model year this modern on-board computer will be available with many other eBikes.

Bosch eBike Ride: Uniform yet entirely individual
With Nyon you can check your elevation profile and battery range, set your assistance level and view the route to take you back home – all on one device. You decide which information is shown on the screen and where. You can set your own favourite screen in addition to the so-called Ride screen by using the Bosch app on your smartphone. You can also set the eBike motor's assistance models to suit you. So the new on-board computer enables eBikers for the first time to fine-tune the motor comfortably for their individual needs.

The 4.3-inch Nyon display is easy to read in all light conditions due to its transreflective technology. Intuitive to use, it is remote-controlled from the handlebars. On the road, eBikers keep their smartphones safely and comfortably in their pockets, connected to Nyon by Bluetooth as required. The mobile phone's music player can be remote controlled from the unit on the handlebars. Calls and messages are shown on the Nyon display. Texts can even be read on the display when the bike is stationary. When it is on the move this function is disabled for safety's sake.

Bosch eBike Navigation: A new take on navigation
Nyon's navigation system is specially designed for the eBike with bicycle-optimised route calculation based on the Wiki Open Street Map (OSM). The GPS with Moving Map in 2D and 3D calculates the best eBike route. An optional extra is a smart remaining range calculator. Instead of a distance in kilometres environmental conditions such as topography and cycling behaviour are taken into account and the remaining range is shown clearly and comprehensibly on a map. Bosch eBike Systems collaborates with Web and app developers in developing Nyon functions, so Nyon users benefit, for example, from the bundled competence of Bosch eBike app experts and the navigation developer Skobbler.

Bosch eBike Fitness: Training with Nyon
Connect heart rate chest straps to Nyon by Bluetooth and it becomes a fitness and training control centre. Heart rate and pedalling cadence, cycling performance, calorie consumption and training efficiency are shown graphically on the display. En route and afterward, you can follow activities and training progress on the Bosch Online Portal and share them with others. “We are working on more apps and functions, both free and paid,” says Claus Fleischer. “This is the beginning of a multifunctional, connected Bosch eBike world.”
