Bosch Electric Bike Technology
Bosch are one of the European market leaders for electric bike systems. Their range of ebike systems can be found on over 50 leading European bike manufacturers. They are by far, one of the most popular drive systems on the market today. Compact, powerful and aesthetically pleasing the Bosch Currently, there are FOUR Bosch motor systems in production:
Active Line (40Nm)
With the Active Line, Bosch provides a versatile, custom-made product for modern eBikers. It enables cyclists to travel longer distance and have more mobility in everyday life with a tailwind on demand.
The Active Line is ideal for recreational eBikers and shopping trips or the Sunday bike ride on not too demanding terrain.
All components come in a discreet platinum and black and are designed ergonomically. Bosch won the Red Dot award for the product design.
With utmost precision, the new drive concept combines the performance of the Drive Unit with that of the eBiker, generating perfectly metered assistance, with the energy required travelling along in the form of the lightweight, varied PowerPacks or PowerTubes. The Active Line guarantees new, unparalleled riding comfort.
Active Line Plus (50Nm)
Ultra quiet and compact, the Active Plus Line delivers more pulling power than the standard Active Line. It’s a great motor for use on a touring bike where those hills can be troublesome.
To be frank, it’s our choice of leisure riding motor as it delivers above and beyond.
Performance Line (63Nm)
The Performance Line truly lives up to its name. It is designed for sportive, powerful cycling both when accelerating in hilly terrain and when cycling in lowland country.
With the highest precision, its performance is combined with that of the eBiker, generating sportive support that dominates every terrain and every gear. From flat to steep. From moderate to full power. Internal performance is complemented by an equally impressive exterior. Design and ergonomics combine a high level of aesthetics and usability.
The Performance Line brings a mass of energy and momentum to the street, to the dirt road, to the pass, to the single trail. The powerful drive system exists in TWO variants.
(1) Cruise (15.5 mph)
(2) Speed (28 mph) – only found on Speed Pedelecs
The strong energy is reflected with the young and sportive design of the anthracite-coloured components – a design awarded with the Red Dot Award for product design. In keeping with its design and performance, a wide range of sports models such as mountain or trekking eBikes can make optimal use of the Performance Line.
Performance Line CX (75Nm)
The Performance Line CX not only ensures significantly more powerful acceleration off road; it is all the more convincing on alpine trails, thanks to the optimised Drive Unit and innovative technology.
Delivering 75Nm at its peak, the CX motor is the perfect choice for electric mountain bikes, and features a high quality ISIS interface and minimum Q factor; trail control and gear change control are gentle on the chain and cassette.
It has a smaller housing and rugged powder coating. Battery options are 500Wh these days. The CX motor can be found on many of our eMTBs including ebikes within the KTM, Moustache, Scott and Cube range. Take a test ride with us and feel the difference!
