Stuttgart/Reutlingen – Year after year, Bosch eBike Systems extends its portfolio, developing new products and integrating third-party components for different user groups and purposes. In addition, Bosch also optimises its products by adding new functions, developments and updates. The Kiox on-board computer now has connectivity functions that link the eBiker with the smartphone app and the eBike Connect online portal. The eSuspension solution provides more comfort for eMountainbiking, integrating an electronically controllable suspension system from FOX. The Nyon ecosystem offers the chance to discover a wide range of interesting cycle routes with Outdooractive or komoot.

Kiox – connectivity for the next model year

Kiox, the compact colour display for sporty riders, uses the eBike Connect smartphone app to connect eBikers with the digital world. As a result, riding and fitness data recorded by Kiox can be transferred to the eBike Connect online portal via the app. After the ride, activities can be conveniently evaluated using the smartphone or computer. The data is automatically synchronised between Kiox and the app via Bluetooth, and software updates can be downloaded to the on-board computer wirelessly. Another new feature with Kiox: The Bosch eBike ABS status indicator is integrated in the display, so there is no need for a separate indicator light. In addition, Kiox users can purchase the new premium Lock function from model year 2020 onwards. Lock is a smart complement to the mechanical lock: disconnecting the on-board computer deactivates motor support; the electronic lock is only released again when the same on-board computer is reconnected.

eSuspension – fully integrated electronic suspension

eSuspension for the Performance Line CX is the first time Bosch eBike Systems has teamed up with FOX to offer eMountain bikers an electronically controllable suspension designed for maximum performance on the trail. FOX E-Live Valve can be easily controlled via the Kiox on-board computer. There are five manually adjustable modes for different riding situations. Using a sophisticated system of sensors, the E-Live Valve determines the conditions of the terrain 1,000 times per second and adjusts the fork and rear shock accordingly within fractions of a second. This means that the eMountain biker can always be sure of the ideal suspension setting and can concentrate fully on the trail. Power is supplied to the eSuspension by the Bosch eBike battery.

Nyon – integrated with Outdooractive and komoot

The latest Nyon update offers users of the eBike Connect smartphone app and the eBike Connect online portal a new design and a revised user interface that makes it easier to navigate through the functions and individual screens. Nyon users can discover thousands of new bike rides thanks to the integration of Outdooractive content by means of the eBike Connect online portal. This enables members of the community to discover eBike rides in new regions and to transfer them to Nyon, so they can be navigated with ease. From autumn 2019, cyclists will also be able to discover new cycling routes with the route planning and navigation app komoot. Pedelec riders need to link their two accounts just once via the eBike Connect portal or the eBike Connect smartphone app, then they can easily synchronise their activities and routes with komoot. komoot activities will also be shown in the online portal. eBikers are always smart on the move with Nyon.
