The world of connectivity opens up for your Giant E-bike with the launch of our RideControl E-bike App. This new app makes it possible to connect your phone with your E-bike. It differentiates itself from other cycling apps with three core functions including tuning possibilities, fitness interaction and notifications to your RideControl EVO screen. The Giant E-bike app is compatible with all our 2019 Giant E-bikes.
With the Giant E-bike App, it is now possible to tune your motor settings and choose a support ratio most suitable for your riding style and terrain. You can choose between stronger, more aggressive performance, or tune it for a more comfortable ride. It’s up to you. The motor comes set with default settings and is adjustable with the App.
Use the RideControl App for turn-by-turn navigation specifically designed for on the bike. If your bike is equipped with a compatible RideControl EVO display it will also show turn-by-turn navigation, so no need to keep your phone at hand.
E-bikes offer a whole spectrum of riding possibilities—from making it easier to pedal and ride farther, to riding for fitness. The Giant E-bike App features new fitness functionalities so the rider can maximize their fitness gains and set goals by time, distance, calories or heartrate. By using the smart auto adjust support function, the system measures the amount of effort you have to put in to reach your heartrate goals. Feedback is displayed by the RideControl EVO display or directly on the App. After your ride, the App shows your accomplishments and performance including the human and motor consumption.
Some bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
Guess they had to start with something...
As it is a new app, I will give it two stars until it improves. No imperial unit support and being a typical American, metric units are meaningless. Won’t keep phone display on like navigation apps do (should be configurable). It’s nice that you can save your ride, but can’t open them and view them later. My 2019 bike does not have a display, so none of the features for the bike display are of any value. My Apple Watch does a better job tracking my ride than this app does.
Great bike horrible app
Lacks basic information such as top speed and loses half of my ride info. Won’t upload ride data and gps data because no service at the trails and then when I get home and try to do it it will fail and sometimes disappear. Basically useless. I hope giant makes an actual display available for 2019 ebikes so I don’t have to mess with this stupid app. I really like my giant bike but not having a display is a real bummer. Using the phone as a display simply doesn’t work. Doesn’t give the right info and will drain your phone quickly if you leave it on for your ride. I can almost guarantee they will be putting standard displays back on the bikes for 2020 but hopefully they won’t forget about people with 2019 bikes. I really wish I knew who thought it would be a good idea to remove the displays from the bikes for 2019????
Potential but needs miles and tire size change abilities
This app has some potential but because it only reads in kilometers that is a little bit limiting for the North American market. Also it is confusing what heart monitors are supported. The other issue that I have is that the giant E bikes do not support changing tire sizes. The dash readouts are in error if you change tires. having the ability to change tire sizes and this app so that the dash would read correctly would be a big benefit.
