If you are the owner of an electric bicycle equipped by Bosch (motor, battery, screen), you are aware that you have at your disposal a mobile application (eBike Connect) to consult a lot of behavior information. Since 2022, a new, more advanced app has emerged: eBike Flow, which is intrinsically linked to Bosch’s famous “smart system” connected solution.

Over time, this technology has found its way into all Bosch components. Today, it is found everywhere except in basic motors (Active Line and Active Line Plus) and batteries (PowerPack 300, 400 and 500).

Bosch has just updated its app, which allows you to refine your riding experience in two types of situations: for mountain biking and cycling. Previously preconfigured and serviced by the brand, the eMTB and Tour+ riding modes can now be customized however you see fit.

All other modes (Race, Sport, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, Tour and Eco) can already be customized in this way.

Bosch is also tackling route profiles and mapping details: a new “Speed” profile appears, specially designed for speedbikes. The user is offered a suitable route calculation.

A questionable heat map

The second shows the mountain bike trails located in the surrounding area, to help cyclists discover new horizons. ” E-MTB routes are color coded by level of difficulty Bosch explains.

Finally, theheat mapindicates the routes that eBike users like to take regularly. Obviously it does not take into account other cyclists, those who ride mechanical bicycles. Another question arises: thisheat mapDoes it only include users with Bosch components? If this is the case, this necessarily limits the panel of people taken into account…
