Bosch's CX-engine: If the Flow Boost

there is A difference like day and night! It was spontaneous and very naive the first impression when switching to a mountain bike with the new Bosch drive system "Performance Line CX". The accessibility to this meeting had been from a much older Version of the same engine supports. But as it goes in real life: The first impression not only counts, it is confirmed also in the course of a long acquaintance - in a Good or less Good.

to be upgraded thanks to a Software update is in the advertising purposes and in technical data as a "fourth Generation" of the engine, designated CX a torque of 85 Newton-meters have been. In addition, the dynamic up to the highest possible level of support has been refined level Empire-driving mode "eMTB", den Bosch in 2017, as a substitute for the level of "Sport" was presented. Thirdly, the latest Update gives the CX the "Extended Boost", a short power-filled syringe, allowing for a stronger lighter Occur in the short term Overcome of angular steps or a thick root system.

Of all these changes, you may from the CX in a Bike from the model year 2021 to be expected, had not only the Haibike Xduro full seven RX, which was presented in may of 2016 at this point. Instead, it runs until today, with the first Version of the CX-drive, as it had been presented in 2015. And just as this wheel has been reactivated, to not compare what is comparable. But, the idea of the technical progress should be mapped, however, was. And he does right off the bat. Because, even before the powerful treatment of the mid-engine is become much more compact, smaller and lighter, with reduced Q-factor, which is simply called: narrow.

This Shrinkage, the effect is only really noticeable when the two motors are directly next to each other, was made possible by the waiver of a transmission implementation in the drive unit. The framework designers received due to the reduced length has a greater freedom in the design of the rear swingarm of a full suspension. While the older engines were driven with a comparatively small, therefore, a greater wear and tear, and additional guides requiring chain leaves the Gear on the Motor is bigger now. More important appeared to be that the current engines will show in the " off " state much less resistance when Pedaling. The current CX Version not only, therefore, often want to shut down or Go faster on their own. The limit speed of the support is exceeded, stops the Motor. And that is a blessing. The current Performance Line CX is howling, Yes rustles outright, depending on the cadence, and the selected Translation in a different pitch, but always much louder than other engines, including the old CX. That interferes significantly, was not merely subjective, private Feelings: One is addressed to it.

Just very briefly, was driven with the current CX a chic red full Suspension of the Trek from the Rail series. A few hundred miles a Hardtail Cannondale was a loud, but reliable vehicle. The aluminum frame with a built-in battery pack was equipped with a 100-mm suspension fork and Deore components from Shimano and ran for 27.5-inch wheels (584 ×of 2.25, Schwalbe Smart Sam). Up to the new Kyox Display, which will still be present, corresponded to the Bike the Trail model Neo 2 (list price of around 3500 euros), or became very close to him.
