BionX drives - turn your favorite bike into an e-bike!

BionX is a well-known Canadian manufacturer of retrofit systems and drive sets for mountain bikes, trekking bikes, racing bikes, cargo bikes, hand bikes and many more. Almost every bike can be converted into an e-bike. Only bikes with thru-axle can not yet be equipped with a BionX drive, but BionX is working to make this possible.

The BionX drive set works absolutely intuitive. Proportional to the driver's input, the system provides additional power. If you pedal more, you will also get proportionally more support, and you will get easier again, and you will receive less support. If you stop kicking, the system does not support anymore. The support level of the BionX drive can be selected on the RC3 controller or on the display. At four possible levels you can choose between 25% and 250% support. This means that you get 25 watts from the system with an own power of 100 watts. So you drive easier and faster. Enjoy the pleasant, silent support of your BionX drive.

Motor technology:

BionX engines offer that extra bit of power. Powerful, proportional electrical support in all situations - whether during sports, to drive to work or with your cargo bike on the way to kindergarten and then shopping.

Recuperation is a figurehead of BionX, which means recovery of braking energy when the brake is applied and returned to the battery. Recuperation increases the range and spares the brakes.

All BionX engines are compatible with SRAM and Shimano 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11-speed cassettes.

The advantages of BionX drives at a glance:

  • Continue the same number of courses
  • Maintaining the proven pedal force sensors on the rear wheel axle
  • As usual gentle and natural driving feeling
  • Broader selection of drive components

ITS-Technology: Increased Tangential Speed
By increasing the diameter of the motor, the magnetic components are located farther out and consequently move at a higher tangential velocity. ITS represents a significant contribution to the 250% higher continuous performance.
MCR-Technology: Magnetic Component Reduction
Increasing the motor diameter requires less electrical power to produce torque. This allows BionX to build a lighter engine. MCR is a significant contribution to the 250% higher continuous performance.
STC-Technology: Spoke To Center
Longer spokes allow a more dynamic impeller with more vertical flex. This provides more comfort, more grip and more traction on the trail.
NSC-Technology: Non Structural Cover
A design that is not subject to dynamic driving allows the use of extra-light motor housings with an exceptionally narrow profile.
PSG-Technology: Proven Strain Gauge
The proven pedal force sensor system is the core of the BionX drive system and ensures the usual gentle and natural driving experience.

  • Weight: 4.7 kg
  • Support up to 25 km / h

These advantages are offered by the P series:

  • Brushless, gearless, maintenance free
  • Generator mode for recuperation (energy recovery)
  • Integrated torque sensor
  • Cartridge body: Compatible with 7, 8, 9, 10, 11-speed cassettes from Shimano and SRAM

The batteries of BionX are lithium-ion batteries without memory effect, that sät that the battery is not must be completely empty to be recharged again. With the 555 Wh battery ranges of up to 135 km are possible, with the recuperation mode even up to 15% more.

With the compact BionX charger, the batteries can be charged within a few hours. All BionX batteries are locked to the wheel and can be removed for loading or loaded directly on the bike.

BionX Deep Sleep Technology

The BionX batteries have a "Deep Sleep" function to save energy during prolonged storage without use. Depending on the state of charge and the inactivity of the battery, this automatically switches to the so-called "Deep Sleep", a deep sleep mode. In the "Deep Sleep" mode no energy is consumed in idle state. Thus, the batteries of BionX can be stored for up to 18 months.

The benefits of deep sleep mode:

  • Energy saving
  • Longer lifetime
  • Significant comfort gain
