COBI.BIKE – YOUR CONNECTED BIKING SYSTEM
The COBI.Bike system connects your bike with your digital world. Our product provides smart features to your bike and intelligent assistance using the smartphone. The result: more safety, comfort and fun on any cycling route.
The dashboard gives you quick access to speed, weather, fitness and performance info in a beautiful interface.
Use the thumb controller to quickly fly through the features – the wheel menu is the smooth interface for your riding experience.
All the control you'd expect, with the simplicity of a thumb controller. Start, stop and pause your tunes with intuitive thumb presses. It works with all your media apps too – from Spotify to podcasts.
Make a quick call by selecting a contact using the thumb controller. You can also answer calls without letting go of the handlebars, which means no more risky phone action while riding.
With Help Connect you enjoy a premium function of the COBI.Bike app for more safety while eBiking. This provides you, as a pedelec rider, with a digital companion that alerts a trained service team in case of an emergency. The smartphone app uses an intelligent algorithm to recognize that the eBiker has fallen, and how bad the accident was.
IMPORTANT: Available for eBikes with SmartphoneHub and COBI.Bike and for German SIM cards only. Please note that the Smartphone must be mounted onto your SmartphoneHub or COBI.Bike.
To use Help Connect with your SmartphoneHub, please update to the latest firmware version. To find out how to update the software on your device, click here: https://www.bosch-ebike.com/en/service/faq/how-is-cobibike-software-updated/
