eBike ABS - controlled and stable braking,

16 June 2020

Safety is a decisive factor for eBike riders and their environment. The world's first production-ready eBike ABS now enables controlled and stable braking, even under difficult conditions. Bosch is an expert with over 40 years of experience in ABS systems, is market leader in motorbike safety systems and is now applying its expertise to pedelecs. 

To be as safe as possible in traffic — whether cycling with or without electric support — it’s important to brake correctly. Ill-advised braking maneuvers are among the main causes of cycling accidents. Inexperienced riders in particular find it difficult to judge how much force is needed for the hydraulic and disc brakes.

  • 34% of bicycle accidents are caused by the front wheel locking up.
  • ABS reduces the risk of a fall — for beginners and for experienced pedelec riders alike

To find out more follow Ellen Dehnert as she cycles across Vienna to work. A pedelec riding instructor, she relies on an innovative technology to keep her safe — the first production-ready antilock braking system for e-bikes.
