Stuttgart/Reutlingen - eBiking has long been much more than electric-assisted cycling. The increased connectivity of physical components with digital features gives eBike riders the opportunity to adapt the eBike experience to their personal needs. Bosch eBike Systems is driving this development forward and has presented numerous connectivity features for the 2024 model year to further individualise the riding experience.

"Connected Biking plays a key role in the future of the eBike," explains Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems. "More comfort, more safety and more customisable features; with the digital solutions for the 2024 model year we offer eBike riders new possibilities to expand their riding experience on the eBike through simple interaction within the eBike Flow app.”

For extra connectivity and security: new premium subscription Flow+

Bosch eBike Systems is introducing the Flow+ premium subscription with the 2024 model year. Initially, this includes the premium service eBike Alarm. To use this service the eBike Lock feature must be activated in the eBike Flow app and the Connect Module must be installed on the eBike.

The Premium subscription will be expanded in the future to include additional services and functions. Users can activate Flow+ in the app or Play Store. They can opt for either a monthly subscription (€4.99) or an annual subscription (€39.99). The first twelve months are free of charge.

The premium subscription can be cancelled at any time before it is automatically renewed 24 hours before the end of the payment period. If cancelled, it will remain active until the end of the current payment period. The Flow+ premium subscription will be available with one of the upcoming updates in Summer 2023.

From model year 2024 the Kiox 300 and Kiox 500 displays can be customised in the eBike Flow app. eBike riders will be able to select the content and order of the display screens, with up to three tiles on one screen at the same time. Sporty eBike riders can have their cadence, average and maximum speed displayed, while touring riders can select information such as distance, gradient and range. Another new feature is that distance metric can now be changed manually from kilometres to miles and vice versa.

In the eBike Flow app users also have the option of adjusting riding modes to suit their riding style – now also available for the Sprint riding mode in the Performance Line SX drive unit. Within the given framework, riders can decide which support and dynamics are required, as well as the maximum torque and speed for the eBike.

Increase fitness and rename tours according to your preferences.

More and more athletes are discovering the eBike as a training partner. They can take advantage of features such as customisable riding modes or analyse their riding and training data. With the 2024 model year, the eBike Flow app provides further training-relevant information. For example, eBike riders can now also display the calories burned in the 'statistics' area of the app. This value complements the performance measurement data and helps ambitious eBike riders to optimise their rides and further improve their fitness level.

Android smartphone users can also now rename their tours saved in the app, allowing rides to be described depending on experience and personal taste – including with emojis.
