Stuttgart/Reutlingen – Bosch eBike Systems and komoot, the leading route planning and navigation app, have been working closely together to make eBikes even more fun to ride: The two brands have taken the integration of komoot's services into the connected world of Bosch eBike Systems even fur-ther. Previously, eBikers could already plan routes in komoot and transfer and navigate them on Nyon and – thanks to the smartphone and COBI.Bike app – on SmartphoneHub. Now, routes planned with komoot can also be used on Ki-ox, thanks to its new navigation function.

eBike-specific routes for an optimal riding experience

All connected displays from Bosch eBike Systems now support and track routes that have been planned in komoot. In addition, eBikers with a connected display from Bosch, using routes that have been planned with komoot, will soon have additional route stats at their fingertips. These ride stats include: more accurate duration times that take into account the rider’s fitness, the eBike type (gravel, mtb, road) and terrain difficulty. “Bosch eBike Systems and komoot have a common goal: We want to offer eBikers an optimal riding experience. With new product functions for Model Year21 and through working more closely with ko-moot, we are once again opening up new possibilities for connecting eBikers with the digital world”, says Tamara Winograd, Head of Marketing and Commu-nication at Bosch eBike Systems.

komoot route planning for active eBikers

For MY21, Bosch eBike Systems is presenting two innovations in its connected displays portfolio – new features for Kiox and the all-new Nyon. On both dis-plays, planned routes with komoot can be easily implemented via eBike Con-nect and thus offer a unique experience. Routes planned on komoot can be seamlessly synced via profile connect to both Bosch Kiox and Nyon. Additional-ly, ride data from Kiox or Nyon will be synced automatically via eBike Connect. The completed activities will then appear on the rider’s personal komoot pro-files, ready for photos to be added and the experience shared with their friends and followers.

These new Kiox functions are available immediately via a simple software up-date. Kiox is also available for retrofitting from specialist dealers. The new, fully connected Nyon on-board computer will be available from autumn, and it can also be retrofitted.

Functions with added value: komoot stats for eBikes

Komoot’s new “stats for eBike” feature – that has just been launched – will be available for eBike Connect as well as for the COBI.Bike app this year. With a brand-new eBike option in its route planner, komoot users have specific tools to help plan their eBike rides more accurately. The eBike route planner from ko-moot is available for eRoad, eGravel or eMountain bikes. By activating a toggle to choose ‘eBike’ when route planning with komoot, riders will see adjusted tour duration and difficulty estimates. Additionally, routes planned for eBikes will au-tomatically upload to komoot as eBike rides. “Komoot recognises the growing amount of komoot users planning and navigating tours with eBikes. Through our cooperation with Bosch we can ensure that we are offering these riders a superior route planning experience and develop exciting new features for their specific eBiking needs”, says Ben Thompson, Head of B2B Partnerships at ko-moot.
