press release

Stuttgart/Reutlingen – From 10 to 14 February 2016 the f.re.e travel and leisure fair is opening its doors at the Munich East trade fair grounds. Around 1,200 exhibitors from 60 countries are inviting visitors to find out about the latest trends in leisure, travel and recreation – with a special focus on eBikes. Cycling with an epower boost is gaining steadily in popularity in and around Munich. Bosch eBike Systems is exhibiting its latest products at the f.re.e (in hall B6 at booth 235). They include the Nyon on-board eBike computer with new functions. In addition, visitors can test the Performance Line CX, specially developed by Bosch for eMountain bikers, and various eBike models made by different manufacturers on the on-site cycle track.

Bavarian capital promotes eBikes
In Munich nearly 20 percent of journeys are currently made by bicycle, so compared with other German cities the Bavarian capital has the highest proportion of distances covered by bicycle. Many Munich cyclists use pedelecs. To take this development forward and ease pressure on roads and the environment, the city is investing € 30 million in promoting the purchase of battery-powered vehicles and setting up a battery-charging infrastructure from April 2016 onwards. Electromobility is high on the agenda at the f.re.e travel and leisure fair, too.

All the new products at a glance
This year a large number of eBike manufacturers are represented in the fair's bicycle section. “For eBikers and those who might like to become eBikers the fair is an opportunity to gain an overview of the latest trends and innovations before the season gets started,” says Tamara Winograd, Press spokeswoman for Bosch eBike Systems. At the f.re.e Bosch is presenting the Performance Line CX, a drive system that is sure to make eMountain bikers' hearts beat faster. “Sporting uses are gaining in popularity with eBikers, and the trend is here to stay. With the eMountain bike manufacturers and dealers are complementing their product portfolio and offer new opportunities and loads of action,” Winograd says.

Connected biking experiences
The new functions of the Nyon all-in-one on-board computer make eBiking even more fun. The MTB route profile takes eMountain bikers along remote roads and off-road routes. Thanks to the GPX import function, tours that you have planned yourself can be uploaded to the on-board computer by an app or an online portal to enable you to follow them. At Stand 235 the Bosch eBikes Systems team will show you how to plan tours with Nyon and eBike-connect.com.
On the f.re.e cycle track different eBike models with Bosch drive systems are available to test-ride extensively.

About Bosch eBike Systems
A new generation of bikes is taking town and country by storm and is already a part of eve-ryday life. eBikes are a modern means of transport for modern people: people in a hurry and people who prefer to take it easy, the fit and the comfort lovers, commuters and pleasure cyclists and, of course, young and old. The tailwind of technology-leading eBikes made by what are already more than 50 leading brands in Europe is powered by components that Bosch is developing to perfection.

Perfect coordination of components holds the key to typical Bosch performance in terms of both comfort and efficiency. Like other Bosch products, the eBike systems benefit from the Bosch Group’s technology and production know-how.
