Performance Linethe sporty e-bike system

The new 2014 Bosch eBike crank drive system

The Performance Line truly lives up to its name. It is designed for sportive, powerful cycling both when accelerating in hilly terrain and when cycling in lowland country. With the highest precision, its performance is combined with that of the eBiker, generating sportive support that dominates every terrain and every gear. From flat to steep, from moderate to full power. The inner values are complemented by an equally impressive exterior. Design and ergonomics combine a high level of aesthetics and usability.

The Performance Line brings a mass of energy and momentum to the street, to the dirt road, to the pass, to the single trail. The powerful drive system consists of the Drive Unit Cruise (25 km/h). PowerPack 300 or PowerPack 400 and the compact Charger. Intuva Active is the clever eBike control centre.

The strong energy is reflected with the young and sportive design of the anthracite-coloured components – a design awarded with the Red Dot Award for product design. In keeping with its design and performance, a wide range of sports models such as mountain or trekking eBikes can make optimal use of the Performance Line.

Drive Unit Performance

The new 2014 Bosch eBike crank drive system

The Drive Unit Performance Cruise enables sporty assistance up to 25 km/h. The difference is the technology behind the new modern anthracite-coloured design of the components. The improved drive system has more powerful electronics and a low-vibration motor as well as lower volume and weight. The optimised 3-sensor concept takes measurements 1,000 times per second with maximum precision for optimal power tuning and a new, unique riding experience. The optimal balance of performance and range is also a matter of pure enjoyment.

Intuvia Performance

The new 2014 Bosch eBike crank drive system

Designed in anthracite-colour in accordance with the Performance Line, the new cycle computer Intuvia Performance presents itself as the control centre of the eBike. . It features simple and intuitive operation trough the separate remote control.

Switching between the five riding modes, plus walk assistance, and look up information such as speed, charging state, distance and much more could not be easier. Even when removed from the ebike, Intuvia remains a useful information tool that makes it possible for you to retrieve all your tour data.

A USB port allows you to charge external hardware such as smartphones and MP3 players. With Intuvia Performance, high-precision distance measurements are possible. The eBiker himself can make a fine adjustment to the wheel circumference at the touch of a button.

The five available riding modes – Turbo, Sport, Tour, Eco and Off – can be easily and conveniently selected via the separate control unit without it being necessary to take one’s hands off the handlebar. Bosch offers the perfect drive mode for every eBike user and riding:
