A new era for eMountain bikers
The Performance Line CX offers a unique eMTB experience: Compact, lightweight and with more power, it combines high-quality materials, an extremely powerful drive and high-end sensors. This brings eMountain biking on the trail to a whole new level. From model year 2021 with a torque of up to 85 Nm, new features in the motor control and a further development of eMTB mode - all as a software update. For a thrilling riding experience: more natural, intuitive and powerful and an absolute benchmark in its class.
A riding experience that sets the benchmark: From model year 2021, the Performance Line CX ensures even more riding enjoyment on the trail - with further developed software and a maximum torque of 85 Nm. The increased torque ensures greater performance, supporting you with even more power, especially in low cadences. In eMTB and Turbo mode, this leads to significantly faster acceleration and makes hill starts much easier. Thanks to a broader cadence range, unpredictable riding situations can be mastered even more effectively - for example in the case of late gear shifting or accelerating out of tight corners. Riding remains smooth and free from jolts, even when out of the saddle or in Turbo mode.

More powerful than ever: Increased to 85 Nm, the torque has a noticeable effect on riding behaviour. It accelerates faster, particularly at low cadences, and makes uphill starts much easier. The eMountain biker has more power available for whenever it's needed.
Impressive performance on the trail: Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones with ease, even uphill. This function enables you to manoeuvre with greater agility and ease on even the most technically demanding trails.
Ready for every challenge: The advanced eMTB mode ensures even better control on the trail, without having to switch riding modes. The motor responds much more sensitively to the rider's effort, especially in low gears, enabling an extremely sensitive start.
Extraordinary sensitivity: Thanks to the multi-sensor concept that takes more than 1,000 measurements per second, the Drive Unit is characterised by an extremely sensitive response.
Natural riding dynamism
Perfectly controlled support: The powerful 32-bit processor enables sensor signals to be processed at high speeds. Performance can be controlled precisely, offering eMountain bikers the best possible support in all riding situations.
For extreme loads: The Drive Unit is extremely efficient and, thanks to the completely maintenance-free 16-pin BLDC electric motor featuring the latest bar winding, it is characterised by great thermal stability. This ensures constant performance even under continuous load.
One step on the pedal and the power kicks in. The precisely delivered support of the Performance Line CX provides even greater riding enjoyment in every situation. No switching of riding modes, no overheating and optimised control: With a sufficient supply of energy from Bosch PowerPacks or the PowerTube and perfect information from the on-board computer, your absolute focus is on a thrilling riding experience. Could you ask for more eBike enjoyment?
Powerful walk assistance
Whether you encounter a carpet of roots or mountain slopes: the optimised walk assistance provides even and powerful support in the face of almost any obstacle without any delays. The speed and start-up behaviour of the walk assistance automatically adjust, depending on the gradient.
eMTB mode can switch between Tour and Turbo riding modes. Depending on the pedal pressure, the progressive motor support automatically adjusts to the individual's riding style, offering dynamic adaptation between 140% and 340% support. Without changing riding mode, the motor always provides support at the ideal power level, even at low cadences. Starting on steep slopes is problem free, off-road riding is made significantly easier and traction is significantly improved. This provides a natural riding sensation and optimum performance on the trail.
