The first ABS system for e-bikes which is perfectly integrated into the bike frame is presenting its latest innovations in active safety for cyclists. Back at CES Las Vegas for the third time is blubrake, the anti-lock braking system that originated in 2015 under the umbrella of e-Novia, the Enterprises Factory. Blubrake has become the new standard in the e-bike market, and today it is a top-level enterprise in the production and commercialisation of its product, which applies the most sophisticated technology from the automotive sector to e-bikes, with the aim of improving the cycling experience and guaranteeing maximum safety for every cyclist. In the event of sudden braking, blubrake’s ABS kicks in, avoiding front-wheel lock and preventing the rear wheel leaving the ground. The system is compatible with all types of electric installations and hydraulic brakes on the market and is completely built in to the inside of the frame of every e-bike model: from mountain bikes to all-road, from urban to trekking and cargo bikes.
Among the companies that will fit blubrake ABS as standard on their 2020 range are: Bulls, an historic German brand that will fit blubrake ABS on two e-mtb full suspended models and on one e-trekking model, Crescent, a Swedish company belonging to the Cycleurope group, which will equip its iconic city e-bike with blubrake ABS, and Trefecta, an innovative speed-pedelec brand. The decision by manufacturers to equip various types of e-bike with blubrake ABS shows its great versatility, which is able to guarantee greater safety on various kinds of terrain.
The founder and CTO of blubrake, Fabio Todeschini, was the pioneer of ‘brake-by-wire’ systems in the automotive sector. A profound understanding of electronically controlled braking-system technology which inspired blubrake to design a system for e-bikes, anticipating future market requirements. “Thanks to a multidisciplinary working-team composed of qualified engineers and product designers, we not only perfected the best-performing ABS system on the e-bike market, but also introduced services for the active safety of the cyclist” commented Todeschini.
