Key facts.

  • 75 NM torque
  • 500Wh and 625Wh systems

The e-bike engine developer stepped up the game: with it’s brand new Performance CX, they only kept the well known name to it. Bosch introduces a whole new generation of motor units, developed for sporty usage and equipped with an incredible software power mapping, as bold as never before. The almost direct drive let’s you pedal without any resistance once you leave the 25km/h benchmark.

  • 65 NM torque
  • 500Wh systems

Bosch is renown for reliable engines and has a well known name in the world of electric drives. With their Perfoemance Line, they refined the software and set up a great power band offering perfect support from the first pedalstroke on.

  • SHIMANO Steps 8000
  • 70 NM torque
  • 504Wh systems

With it’s introduction, the Shimano Steps 8000 quickly set a benchmark in its class. Still, it’s the engine you’re thinking of when you talk about extremely techy terrain and uncompromised performance. Due to it’s low weight and compact size as well as defined support modes, the Shimano not only delivers on long, boring climbs but also in difficult uphill trails.
