E-bikes, mixing easy travel and healthy lifestyle, are the future of personal and public transportation. On a ride bike, safety is the priority, and e-bike road accident statistics show that 58% of the incidents occur when braking. A highly significant percentage, considering the speed that e-bikes can reach.

The Product

blubrake has developed the only ABS (anti-lock braking system) for e-bike completely integrated inside the frame. The system continuously controls the hydraulic pressure of the front brake to guarantee smoother braking and increased stability and manoeuvrability of the e-bike. In particular, the system intervenes to avoid two very dangerous events: front wheel lock-up and rear wheel lift-off.

How Does It Work?

The electronic unit monitors the dynamics of the e-bike via sophisticated algorithms and accurate measurements from the speed sensor, then detects potentially dangerous conditions that can occur during hard braking. In such conditions, blubrake’s ABS intervenes and continuously controls the hydraulic pressure of the front brake to guarantee smoother braking and increased stability and manoeuvrability of the e-bike.

Aims And Next-Steps

blubrake has been validated by some of the most important European e-bike manufacturers. The first e-bikes with blubrake ABS have been presented
at Eurobike, the international cycling fair held in Friedrichshafen in September, and the first models will be available in stores at the beginning of 2020

blubrake aims to become the world’s leading company for braking control systems in the e-bike industry, providing a high-quality and reliable product that will become a safety-standard in the market and in the urban mobility revolution
