Bosch, renowned for its pioneering electric bicycle technology, has consistently impressed with its innovative e-bike systems and complementary tech, like smartphone integration and display systems.
A recent breakthrough from Bosch is the eBike Flow app update, enhancing e-bike security. The update leverages the Kiox display as a key, allowing users to electronically lock the motor via their smartphone. Now, locking the bike is as simple as detaching the Kiox screen – a quick, effortless action as it’s securely clipped in place.
This feature is compatible with both Kiox 300 and Kiox 500 displays, streamlining the locking process for riders. While it’s advisable to employ a physical bike lock for added safety, this electronic lock discourages theft attempts.
In shared e-bike scenarios, where multiple individuals use the same bike, Bosch caters to convenience. Individual Kiox screens can now unlock the bike and automatically load a rider’s personalized settings, though acquiring a new Kiox 300 screen for $135 USD is necessary. This cost-effective option outweighs the expense of purchasing extra electric bicycles.
To unlock the bike, users need only reattach the Kiox display to its cradle and ensure smartphone pairing. Bosch’s dedication to safety and user-friendliness is evident in recent updates.
The Kiox 300 display, previously equipped with advanced navigation capabilities, is evolving beyond a mere ride data monitor. Bosch’s relentless feature development adds value to the e-biking experience.
