The Bosch Powertrain system includes drive unit, control unit, sensor concept, lithium ion battery pack and control computer. This is Bosch's first entry into the bike trade.

The Stuttgart-based group is partnering with Cannondale to bring the e-bike propulsion unit to market, although other manufacturers will be able to spec the unit.

Rainer Jeske, head of Bosch Powertrain Systems eBike, said:

"We are an ideal supplier for bicycle manufacturers. We are happy to partner with Cannondale who shares our ambitions."

Bob Burbank, General Manager for Cannondale, said:

"As we look to align with strategic partners, we work with like-minded companies that are pushing the limits with new technologies that can advance the riding experience. With Bosch we strive to create a better transportation option with a unique technology."

Powertrain is a pedal-assist system.
