Bosch offers new on-board computer for 'ambitious' e-bike riders

Published August 31, 2018

IRVINE, Calif. (BRAIN) — Bosch will launch its new Kiox e-bike computer to the U.S. market at Interbike. The Kiox has a color display abd separate handlebar control, and provides data including speed, personal performance, cadence and battery state of charge. The Kiox is compatible with an optional heart rate monitor and the company said more connectivity functions will follow.

"Kiox is our best and brightest display with more useful features than ever packed into such a compact unit," said Claudia Wasko, vice president and general manager of Bosch eBike Systems Americas. "With its ability to connect to the rider's heart rate via wearable sensors, Kiox also marks our first step in North America connecting e-bikes to the e-biker's digital world."

Bicycle manufacturers can choose to install the 1.9-inch display with the Bosch mount or integrate it into the stem with custom solutions. The Kiox was recognized with a "Best New Product" Award at Eurobike 2018.

Bosch said the high-resolution color display is readable in direct sunlight and in the dark. It is protected from scratching by Gorilla Glass. A magnetic holder provides a secure grip and allows easy removal and attachment. The integrated display battery provides up to 20 minutes of power in the off-board mode and displays a summary of the day's activities. The on-board computer is controlled by the separate Remote Compact control unit on the handlebar.

"The palpable pressure from the buttons of the new rugged remote gives the e-biker clear feedback — easy, safe and intuitive," the company stated.
