Bosch CX Drive

HIGH TORQUE Bosch CX Drive


The Bosch CX Drive motor offers 25% more torque than the regular Performance Line motor - up to 75 Nm at peak output. The CX Drive motor builds upon the basic features of the Performance Line, so if you haven't read this page, you might want to do so first.

In addition to the increase in torque on the CX Drive system, Bosch has redesigned the motor casing to be both lower profile (affording greater clearance beneath the motor when riding), as well as a powdercoated enclosure designed to withstand the rigors of all kinds of cycling, especially off-road riding.

The Bosch CX Drive is made up of three distinct components: the drive unit, the battery, and the console.

The CX Drive Unit


The drive unit is made up of a direct drive motor and gear box, the controller, and a number of sensors including a torque sensor, a cadence sensor, and speed sensor. The CX Drive motor is rated at 75Nm of peak torque output (20% more than the standard Performance Line motor. A slimmer motor profile allows for better riding clearance, and hardened case withstands rigors of off-road riding.
