Smart System Updates

More customizable riding modes and new navigation functions for the eBike Flow app

  • Even more individual and sporty: eMTB and Tour+ riding modes now also customizable
  • Even more comprehensive: Extended map details provide helpful additional information for navigation
  • Even more international: eBike Flow app is now available in four additional languages

With the new, free update for the smart system, the physical and digital riding experiences are merging more and more: eBike riders now have the option of adapting the two riding modes eMTB and Tour+ in the eBike Flow app to their personal riding style. Advanced navigation functions also promise even more individual route planning. 

Optimal interaction between rider and eBike on the trail

The eMTB mode adapts the support in every eMTB situation optimally to the eBike rider and the surface – dynamically, progressively, and with maximum sensitivity. Via the settings in the eBike Flow app, users can now make further adjustments. They can decide for themselves whether, and to what degree, they want to change the dynamics, strength, speed, or torque of their eBike. Lighter eMTB riders, for example, can adjust the support to further improve their performance on the trail. 

For the Tour+ riding mode Bosch eBike Systems offers the same customization options with the update. eBike riders can ride even more efficiently by fine-tuning the parameters, for example by reducing the maximum supported speed and thus extending their battery life. The other Bosch riding modes – Race, Sport, Cargo, Turbo, Auto, Tour, and Eco – can already be customized. 

New navigation functions allow more individual route planning

Bosch also introduces enhanced navigation functions with the update, promising eBike riders even more precise planning of their routes. In addition to the route profiles for daily rides (“Daily”), leisure rides (“Leisure”), and eMTB trails (“eMTB”), there is now a new “Speed” profile for speed eBikes. This calculates routes that can be traveled with Class 3 eBikes. 

In addition to the route profiles, Bosch offers the map detail variants “Satellite”, “MTB Trails,” and the new “eBike Heatmap.” The latter shows which routes eBike riders regularly like to use. Via the map detail “MTB Trails,” app users can also see which mountain bike trails are nearby – and get inspiration for their next ride. The MTB trails are color-coded according to their level of difficulty. The map detail “Satellite” provides a better overview and more precise information about the surroundings. All three map detail variants can be flexibly selected in all route profiles.

In addition to the integration of the new features, the eBike Flow app is now also offered in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, and Czech language versions. 

The update for the smart system can be downloaded via the eBike Flow app. The latest version can be downloaded from the relevant app store at no additional cost.
