Bosch is not without reason the market leader in e-bike drive systems. This includes a reliable run time, high safety standards, a dense service network and the regular and obligatory training of dealer partners. The third generation of Bosch motors impresses with long range and virtually unnoticeable pedalling resistance when the motor is switched off or while riding above 25 km/h. In addition, the Active Line Plus drive unit — without a gearbox — is very quiet.
Bosch mid-mounted drive units work reliably even on inclines, as the motor analyses the interaction between the shift, torque and cadence, ensuring optimal efficiency and energy use.
Bosch – PowerTube 500 Battery
The PowerTube 500 battery enables a range which, depending on the motor level, can last for multiple trips to work, shopping or out into nature. The battery is removable and fully charged in 4.5 hours. Bosch batteries have a long service life, are tested to the very highest safety standards and can be charged at any time, regardless of their battery status. Interruptions of the charging process do not damage the batteries. A complete discharge is not necessary.
Bosch – Purion Display
The choice of assistance is made via the handlebar-mounted Bosch Purion display, which can be used to select the four motor levels, from Eco (minimum assistance) to Turbo (maximum assistance), as well as displaying the driving speed. Switching off the motor or turning on the walk assistance is possible via the display unit. The plus and minus buttons are used to change the motor levels intuitively, whilst a long hold on the plus button switches the light on and off.
The range depends on several factors and can be determined here by way of example. Decisive factors are the terrain, overall weight (bike and rider) and the starting frequency, e.g. at multiple traffic lights.
Leisurely cyclists light on baggage and with few stops can travel an unbeatable range of 200 km per battery charge in Eco mode. If you prefer to travel faster or have more baggage with you, it will still travel 80—120 km before the extra boost of the motor is absent. But even then the onward journey is no problem, because even without e-motor, our Bosch bikes still maintains a natural riding experience.
Supernova – Mini 2 Headlight
Impressively bright and lightweight, the Supernova E3 Tail Light 2 adds the final touch to a top-notch lighting system. The Supernova is the brightest tail light on the market within permitted limits; it includes a stand light function and weighs a mere 12g. That’s as light as safety gets.
The Mini 2 front light has it all: thanks to the new Terraflux 3 lens, the brightness has been increased to more than 15%. In addition to the optimized reflector it creates an ideal road illumination. The energy is supplied via the e-bike battery.
We find it really handy to be able to carry heavy items on our bikes and so decided to design a front rack that securely attaches to the frame. The rack does not affect steering and Gustav can sail through traffic even with heavier items on board. We have equipped it with the innovative VarioStraps system, which can be adjusted to adapt to the size and shape of whatever you are carrying. When not in use, the straps can be tucked away discreetly on the rack.
Wingee – W52 Mudguards Schindelhauer custom
Wingee manage to walk the line between creating robust, well-designed mudguards, as well as integrating a bracket onto which pannier bags can be attached. Thus a high-quality mudguard-rack-combination with a very minimalistic design was created. The set weighs only 1kg and is solidly made to carry a load of 8kg per side.
Gates Carbon Drive – CDX Belt Drive
The Gates Carbon Drive belt is revolutionary in terms of bike power transmission. Requiring zero maintenance, the belt also lasts approximately 3-4 times longer than a chain. What’s more, the belt is super strong and efficient because of the embedded carbon fibres as well as being extremely quiet and incredibly lightweight. Life is also a lot easier when your trousers are still clean after travelling by bike thanks to the absence of oil and grease.
Schindelhauer – Belt Port
We like the idea of a belt drive that blends in with the rear triangle - with our patented Schindelhauer Belt Port (SBP) system, the opening is practically invisible. Changing your drive belt is easy. Wave-like in form, the interlocking connector forms a firm connection between the seatstay and chainstay. Plus, just like a jigsaw piece, it can easily be removed and reinstalled. Normally couplings or bolt connections would be visible around the seatstay area, but with Schindelhauer bikes a bolt connects the SBP to the stiff structure once again as if an opening never existed. We are very proud of the clean, minimalist design of our bikes.
Formula – CURA Disc Brakes
The ultimate in braking power. The Formula CURA system is a true technical masterpiece with its monoblock brake calliper, radio master cylinder and easy adjustments at the levers. High-class brake callipers and levers made of forged aluminium, combined with a 160mm disc rotor, convincingly demonstrate maximum deceleration values at a weight of only 490 g per set (without rotor and adapter). The brake performance is powerful and easily modulated , thus making it possible to maintain full control, also thanks to ergonomic brake levers.
Formula – CURA Brake Levers
Formula made a point to develop very ergonomic brake levers when creating their CURA disc brake system. The levers are perfectly shaped and provide excellent brake modulation. Despite the slim look, the levers include a big oil reservoir, which makes for a consistently high performance even under high pressure. Another practical bonus: the position of the vent screws allows refill and venting with the lever still attached.
Schindelhauer – Hydroforming Fork
Our hydroforming fork, especially designed for our e-bikes, sets a new standard for what is possible with the raw material aluminium. Due to its one-piece-hydroforming-method, a completely hollow fork is created, which is both rigid and lightweight and leaves enough space for internal cable routing. The forged drops, an elegant postmount-brake calliper and Thru-axle system complete this multi featured fork. With its big tyre clearance our hydroforming fork is made for every adventure.
WTB – Horizon Tyres
We want cyclists to be comfortable and able to explore the city at high speeds. To guarantee both, we opted for the WTB Horizon 650 B. The tyre makes light of cobblestones without the need to reduce pedalling speed. Reflective strips ensure you’re safely seen in the dark and the brown strip on the sides adds a little chic.
