Stuttgart/Reutlingen – Small, connected and pioneering: Kiox connects ambitious sporty eBikers to the digital world via the eBike Connect smartphone app, while also enabling them to navigate from A to B. For model year 2021, Bosch eBike Systems is extending the small, robust on-board computer to include a navigation function. In addition, eBikers will also have the option of customising the ride data display. This makes Kiox the perfect companion, ensuing pure riding enjoyment on longer trips.

Optimum orientation

Kiox uses the smartphone for navigation purposes. The on-board computer connects with the eBike Connect Smartphone App on which navigation is running via Bluetooth. The planned trip is shown on the on-board computer display as a line that indicates the route for the eBiker. For ease of orientation at all times, the view on the display rotates in the direction of movement while riding. This makes it easy for eBikers to navigate tracks. Kiox also tells you just how far your are from your destination. It's easy to plan routes using the eBike Connect App or online portal and to send them to Kiox. When connected with komoot or Outdooractive, eBikers will find lots more rides to choose from.

Customised display

The new display, which can be configured as required, ensures an even more individual riding experience. The screens and the selection of ride data such as speed, performance or battery charge can be easily adapted to the rider's own wishes. eBikers can decide for themselves just how much information they want to see on the display.

Always up-to-date

eBike Connect App and online portal give the eBike access to the connected eBike world. The on-board computer uses Bluetooth to synchronise all relevant ride data with the app. These can be evaluated after the trip in the app or online portal. The update extends the functional scope of Kiox and also includes various technical improvements such as the stabilisation of the Bluetooth coupling. This ensures a better connection between Kiox and the eBike Connect App. "We use regular software updates to introduce new features for our on-board computers, while also continuing to optimise the way our products work. This is something familiar from smartphones and TVs. It is the same for our connected on-board computers. This is how we ensure that eBikers will enjoy the connected experience for a long time to come," explains Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems.

The new Kiox functions will be available as a software update from summer 2020 onwards and will be synchronised automatically. The on-board computer is available for retrofitting from specialist dealers from summer 2020 and is compatible with all product lines from model year 2014 onwards.
