New anti-lock braking technology for e-bikes unveiled

New anti-lock braking technology for use in e-bikes has been revealed by German company Bosch.

The system stops the front wheel from locking: sensors attached to the brakes inform the system when the front wheel might be about to lock. As Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems, explains: “ABS regulates the braking pressure and thus optimises the stability and manoeuvrability”.
