E-bike tuning with SpeedBox Tuningchip

Created by Dietrich Limper at 09:05 on May 3, 2022

The SpeedBox brand has long stood for reliable tuning for e-bikes from a wide range of manufacturers. These include models from well-known producers such as Bosch, Yamaha, Shimano, Brose, Panasonic and Bafang. With the tuning modules of the Czech manufacturer, it is possible to deactivate the speed limiter of the e-bike and thus achieve a higher speed on private property. Especially if you are on the road for a longer distance straight and would like a little more support, it is thus the ideal gadget.

Tuning modules like the SpeedBox 1.0 remove the speed limit. In Germany, this is 25 km/h, at which the support of the electric motor is usually switched off. The tuning module cancels this cut-off, which means that the power of the electric motor can also be felt at higher speeds.

Those who are now worried that this will have an extremely negative effect on the general lifetime of the battery can rest easy. Usually, e-bike models in other countries are available without this limitation and are thus also designed and conceived for higher speeds. The battery will probably run out faster, but nothing else will happen. The braking performance is also not affected by this. Sure, those who drive faster will have a longer braking distance and higher wear. Functionally, however, this has no effect on the braking process. Nevertheless, it is recommended to always wear a helmet for your own safety, as in normal road traffic.
