Beginning in 2018 manufacturer planning to equip their e-bikes with BMZ e-bike systems can decide whether they want to offer their e-bike with or without BMZ Connect C App. Technically a small hardware device integrated in the system architecture provides an interface between the rider’s smartphone and the e-bike system. It allows to improve the rider’s product experience with features as:
Individualizing system characteristics
Considering different rider behaviours, e-bike factory settings can always be a good compromise only.
