Safer eBiking



Bosch eBike ABS in cooperation with MAGURA. The technology which improved safety for cars and motorcycles in critical traffic situations, probably saving thousands of lifes, is now available for the first time for bicycles – ABS, the anti-lock braking system.

In the late 1970th the German company Bosch introduced the first fully functional ABS for cars and helped to prevent injuries all over the globe. Bicycles – and especially the booming pedelecs and e-bicycles – have become as popular as cars and motorcycles these days.


In particular the more heavier e-bicycles benefit from the improved safety while riding in the hectic rush hours of the urban jungle. Nearly 40 years later Bosch and MAGURA joined their efforts in a project to bring in their competences to develop an ABS brake system, which increases rider safety for eBikes.


MAGURA takes care for the brake technology and developed a completely new brake. The system with ABS needs more braking fluid and also more spare volume because of the pulsating function of the brake.


A bigger and more ergonomic 3-finger-lever guarantees better control and improves sensivity while pulling. This is the reason while the companies designed a totally new hydraulic ABS brake system where decades of experience from the MAGURA motorcycle sector were deployed.


As an introductory project for the new system selected fleet partners will receive pedelecs mounted with the eBike ABS in autumn 2017, the product is only up for sale from autumn 2018. Only trekking and city bicycles with 28 inch tires will be fitted with the eBike ABS.
