The Cycle Show at the NEC, 13-15 September, is one of the best places in the UK to see a wide range of electric bikes from dozens of different manufacturers. Bosch is one of the biggest players in the e-bike market, and this year marks the tenth anniversary of Bosch eBike Systems. The German giant has celebrated with a range of new motors, batteries and a new display, as well as new functionality including a clever ‘Lock’ system. Bosch eBike Systems will be at the show with their own stand, their own ABS Test Track and are sponsoring the show’s MTB Test Track.
Ride a range of bikes on the Bosch eBike Systems MTB Test Track
There will be a huge range of electric mountain bikes to see at the Cycle Show. But you don’t just have to look at them; you can ride a variety of e-bikes from top manufacturers including Cannondale, Focus, Corratec and Riese & Muller – with more to be announced.
The show has changed halls for 2019, and for the first time the main Test Track is predominantly outside - so it’s longer and better than ever before. If you want to try a range of eMTBs – or if you’ve never tried one and want to see what all the fuss is about – then the Bosch eBike Systems Test Track is the place to head to. Get there early and sign up for a ride - it’s bound to be popular!
Try out Bosch eBike ABS on the designated ABS Test Track
The Bosch Anti-locking Braking System (ABS) is a clever piece of kit, with wheel sensors that detect when front wheel locks up and automatically releases the brake so you don’t fly over the handlebars. It’s not something you necessarily want to test the limits of in the real world, but at The Cycle Show you can head over to the 50-metre Bosch eBike ABS Test Track and try out the system in controlled conditions on loose terrain.
Returning for its second year, the Bosch eBike ABS Test Track at the Cycle Show is the only one of its kind in the UK, and has a fleet of top-quality Riese & Muller urban bikes factory-fitted with the Bosch eBike ABS system for you to try.
Head over to the Bosch stand for the latest tech
Did you catch the news back in June? Bosch has updated its range of motors with a brand new Performance Line CX unit, a new Cargo Drive Motor and an updated Performance Line and Performance Line Speed range. There are new batteries and a new display too, and everything will be on show at the Bosch stand at The Cycle Show. It’s the first opportunity for UK cyclists to see the entire new range of products across city/leisure, eMTB and road.
As well as the new products, Bosch will also be showing off the smart new ‘Lock’ function on the new Kiox display. If you remove the Kiox from the bike the eBike system becomes disabled until the very same Kiox display is reconnected. It’s a clever system which makes your e-bike less easy to steal and less valuable to thieves too. Bosch will be demoing the Lock function throughout the weekend.
If checking out a huge range of e-bikes, meeting cycling celebrities and getting advice from the best brands in the biz sounds like a great day out, The Cycle Show is more than worth a visit. Whether you're an experienced rider looking for a new bike or if you've only just started on two wheels, there is plenty for everyone. You'll also find loads of cool clothing, accessories and tech too.
