ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM

COMING TO THE U.S. IN 2019

In 2018, Bosch will be launching the first standard anti-lock braking system (ABS) for electric bicycles. ABS enables controlled and stable braking, even in critical situations. Rider safety is enhanced through the combination of front wheel ABS and rear wheel lift control. The pressure at the front brake is regulated during critical braking maneuvers - an advantage particularly during trekking and city riding.

The first ebikes with ABS will be on the road with selected fleet partners in German speaking countries from autumn 2017 onwards. Bosch eBike ABS will be available for purchase in Europe starting fall 2018 - US market to follow.
