Bosch to team up with Cannondale on electric bike project

HI

BikeRadar.com are reporting that

Technology giants Bosch have gone into partnership with Cannondale with the aim of producing an electric bike in time for this autumn's Eurobike show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

It will use a modular power system developed by Bosch's new Powertrain Systems eBike unit, which will apparently offer “outstanding drive performance".

A system of three sensors will pick up on pedalling force, pedalling frequency and speed of travel to give the optimum level of power assistance for whichever of the four 'driving programs' the rider has chosen, ranging from Eco (maximum range) to Speed (maximum support).

The lithium-ion battery will weigh 2.3 kg and have a charging time of up to 2.5 hours. For further information as it becomes available, go to www.bosch-ebike.de and leave them your email address.
