Description

Please note that the eBike Flow app only connects to eBikes with the new smart system from Bosch. Our Kiox and Nyon on-board computers are still compatible with the eBike Connect app. The COBI.Bike app is available for our SmartphoneHub and COBI.Bike Hub.

The eBike Flow app is the control center for your eBike with smart system.
Riding distance, battery status, the next service appointment - with the eBike Flow app you can see all this information at a glance. Connect to your eBike now for an even better riding experience!

CONNECT WITH YOUR eBIKE
With the eBike Flow app, you connect to your bike and your bike connects to the internet. This way you always keep it up-to-date and enjoy updates and improvements as they become available. More riding fun through modern technology.

ALL INFO AT A GLANCE
Distance traveled, current battery status or your next service appointment: The app gives you all this information about your eBike at a glance.

RIDE SCREEN
See the most important eBike and ride data on your handlebars: The ride screen shows you, among other things, your current speed, and the battery charge level. While riding, you can use the LED Remote to switch between the ride screen and navigation without taking your hands off the handlebars.

AUTOMATIC ACTIVITY TRACKING
Just ride and eBike Flow automatically records your tour and fitness data. If you like, you can also sync your data to Apple Health, komoot and Strava. And it's all fully automatic - you don't have to worry about a thing. Well, you should still steer ;-)

NAVIGATION
Free eBike navigation tailored to your needs. Map styles specially adapted to the route profiles daily, leisure or eMTB, make it easier for you to find your way - with, for example, buildings in 3D view in the city. Detailed information such as elevation and route characteristics, points of interest such as bicycle retailers or charging stations are part of the new navigation feature for your eBike Flow app.

eBIKE LOCK & eBIKE ALARM
eBike Lock and eBike Alarm are the ideal supplement to a mechanical lock: After the one-time installation via the eBike Flow app, your smartphone serves as a digital key. When you switch off your eBike, eBike Lock & Alarm activate automatically. The motor support is deactivated and your eBike reacts to slight movements with alarm signals. If your eBike is moved more strongly, you will receive a message on your smartphone, the tracking function starts, and you can track the position of your eBike in the eBike Flow app. To use eBike Alarm, ConnectModule must be installed and eBike Lock must be activated.

PERFECTLY TUNED TO YOU
With the eBike Flow app, you can adjust the ECO, TOUR, SPORT and TURBO riding modes to perfectly suit you. For example, increase support in TOUR mode or reduce power consumption in TURBO - anything is possible. Make it your eBike.

ALWAYS UP TO DATE
With the app, your eBike is always up to date and benefits from updates and improvements as they are made available. You can easily download new eBike functions and updates for components such as the battery or motor and transfer them to your eBike via Bluetooth.

SMARTPHONE IN YOUR POCKET
You can simply leave your smartphone in your pocket while riding, it remains connected to your eBike via Bluetooth Low Energy. Everything still works, whether downloading an update or recording your tour data. You don't have to worry about a thing.

HELP
Have a question about your smart system eBike? The eBike Flow app Help Center provides the answer. Clearly structured explanations about the app, components or connection offer immediate support. And you can also contact our support directly via the app.

PRIVACY
Protecting your privacy is important to us. That's why we treat your data confidentially and only use it in accordance with legal requirements.

What’s New

Version 1.10.4

We have improved the situation around the connection issues that caused tracking failures with the ConnectModule and eBike Alarm.

Transport mode: If you transport your eBike, for example in a car or on the train, you can now use the transport mode. This temporarily deactivates eBike Alarm and your ConnectModule. This prevents false alarms from the motion sensors. Go to the settings of the eBike Flow app and click on "My eBike" to activate the transport mode.

Map details: Navigation and route planning are now even more individual! In addition to the route profiles, you can now display three types of map details: "eBike Heatmap" shows you heavily traveled routes. "Satellite" provides a simplified satellite view for more overview and details. "MTB Trails" shows you where mountain bike routes are located in your area. In addition, you can now select your desired route profile via quick selection when planning a route.

komoot: From now on, only routes that are marked as a "Bike" category in komoot will be imported into the eBike Flow app.

We have also fixed some minor bugs and made improvements: for example, activity data and riding times are now correctly transferred to Apple Health - even if you paused a trip for a longer time.

Well designed but lacking features (currently)

The app interface and design is really neat. Easy to use and reliably connects to my new Bosch Smart ebike.

It’s a bit lacking in features at the moment though and the only thing that I’m finding it useful for is customise the assistance modes. And even that is a set and forget feature.

The ride record is a good idea, but once the ride is finished it’s just sat on the app. There isn’t even a way to import the ride to Strava (it’s missing time stamps) - so not really any use to me just sat on the phone without an option to integrate to the worlds most popular cycling app!

Recording mileage in each mode is interesting. I’d like to see a total ride time in hours - would be useful to help with suspension servicing etc (which has hourly intervals, ie 100 hour service).

I do hope some kind of map / route planning is added. This would make it a great alternative to Garmin if it worked well.

I also hope that we can customise the kiox 300 screens - I’d like to have a clock showing on some screens, not just the default screen!

Overall, as of February 2022, the Smart app is not bad, it’s just not that…. Smart… at the moment.

Couple of weird omissions

I almost never leave reviews, but have been motivated here. I think this is a pretty good piece of software implementation, it can’t be used by both my wife and I with the same bike using the mobile phone adapter. This strikes me as a truly bizarre omission, because allowing multiple devices to pair has been a part of the Bluetooth protocol since its development!

I’m writing because I’d love the developer to confirm that multiple phones will be able to use the same phone mount and unlock the device, just like you can with key substitutes on the Tesla. A core part of many of the cargo bikes’ design is enabling multiple users of different sizes to easily switch in to using the same bike, suggesting that the shared model is not unusual, especially since they’re often billed as car replacements. Please implement this very simple change!!

Want mph not kph

Having recently purchased a new e bike with Kiox 300 I downloaded eflow all ok except I wanted miles per hour not kilometres per hour. Emailed support to be told to alter my location on my phone to America, WHAT ! I’m in England. Why would I want to do that. Surely there should be an option to choose between mph and kph.
