Do you want eMTB software that only helps you when you need it? Maybe something that optimizes range so you can get further into the gnar?
Bosch has you covered with its new Tour+ mode, which automatically adds or reduces assistance in the choppy stuff and on climbs, then backs off on flatter terrain. The result is increased assistance when you need it, with the bonus of increased range and a more natural feel when riding.
“With the Tour+ riding mode, eBike riders who like to exert themselves a little more and put more of their own effort into pedaling get a comfort-oriented and range-optimized support level,” said Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems.
“There is no need to switch between the familiar modes; riders can devote themselves completely to their eBike experience and enjoy maximum riding pleasure.”
Bosch Tour+ Tech Overview and Availability
The new mode, which is available as an update to bikes with the Performance Line CX motor system, improves on the platform’s eMTB mode introduced a few years ago. It used to be that the rider had to manually switch between assisted and non-assisted riding. But Tour+ mode adjusts power automatically by monitoring your pedal pressure more than 1,000 times per second. It then gauges how hard you’re pedaling and adjusts the motor’s assistance accordingly.
You can use Tour+ mode if you have a Performance Line CX ebike motor. To learn more about the system and learn whether your specific bike is compatible with the upgrade, check out the Performance Line CX page.
