Innovations for greater safety on E-Bikes

HIGHER – FASTER – FURTHER. But also safer?

Motor-assisted e-bikes put smiles on riders'faces, but higher speeds come with increased safety requirements. Here are some innovations that will keep you safe..

 

BOSCH E-BIKE ABS

ABS, which has ensured greater safety in critical situations in cars and motorcycles for years, is now also available in the e-bike sector. In cooperation with MAGURA, Bosch has brought out the first volume-manufactured bicycle ABS system. ABS is especially advantageous for e-bikes, which are a little heavier and faster. The benefits are important in hectic city traffic and on wet roads. Sophisticated sensors prevent going over the handelbars and sliding tires, even in shock braking or on loose surfaces like gravel.

SUPERNOVA HIGH BEAM

Supernova was the first manufacturer to launch an approved high beam for bicycles – the M99 MINI PRO25. It not only gives cyclists clear, long-range night vision, it also offers brilliant illumination and increases the safety factor many times over. For the first time ever, legally approved bicycle lights provide bright illumination for unclear terrain. Now bikers can see hanging branches, signs, junctions and hardly visible pedestrians much faster. In city traffic it’s easy to switch to low beam.

THE HÖVDING AIRBAG FOR CYCLISTS

It looks like a scarf, but it’s an airbag that provides up to eight times the protection of a normal helmet. In the event of an accident it inflates in less than 0.1 seconds and even notifies selected contacts. Fashion-conscious cyclists have a choice of numerous design options and will be glad to know that the airbag does not interfere with hairstyles.

SPECIALIZED ANGI CRASH SENSOR

For safe riding alone. The Angi crash sensor measures the forces that act on a helmet in a bicycle crash and automatically sends important location information to emergency contacts. Angi can be a lifesaver for bikers who are often out alone. And it’s smaller than a matchbox.

MAGURA BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH

An optional switch in the lever blade of MAGURA MTe models activates the tail light before braking action occurs, giving a warning to vehicles behind.
