The on-board computer Nyon: so you are fully networked everywhere - Compatible with the drives of the Active and Performance Line & Performance Line CX


The Nyon can do (almost) everything. It's a clever navigation system and e-bike control in one. From the calculated driving data Nyon calculates your training values. The 8 Gb memory provides space for your map data, GPS tracks and routes. Via Bluetooth you can pair the Nyon with your smartphone.

Fast energy with the chargers from Bosch


Bosch chargers for e-bikes are characterized by their robustness, handiness and low weight. The housing of the Bosch Charger is closed and thus well protected from dust and dirt. There are two different types of Bosch Chargers. The Standard 4A Charger is the fastest and loads the 500 Wh Bosch Powerpack in 4.5 hours. The 2A Compact Charger is not quite as fast, but about 40% smaller than its big brother. The Bosch Standard and the Compact Charger work for all Bosch Powerpacks and the new Powertube batteries.

Bosch Charger Adapter


The Bosch Charger Adapter allows you to charge a Classic + Line battery with the new Bosch Standard or Compact Charger for Active & Performance Line. So you need, for example only one charger for the different batteries when traveling.
