MAHLE SmartBike Systems launches its new System X30

MAHLE SmartBike Systems, the eBike company of automotive component supplier MAHLE, has launched its new X30 drive system for eBikes. The new MAHLE X30 system consists of motor, battery, HMI (human machine interface) and other components and extends the X-Series system platform.

The highlight is the new motor, which is designed to provide great performance on any terrain, with a 45 N·m torque (compared to a mid-drive motor) and weighs just 1.9kg. MAHLE says that the MAHLE X30 has therefore set a new standard for hub motors.

The new MAHLE X30 is also compatible with all the components, accessories, and digital environment of the MAHLE X20 system, which means that the complete system can be equipped with Pulsar ONE, eShifters, HMI, iX2 or iX3 batteries and External Battery eX1 (e185).

The design of this rear hub motor allows for system synergy as a result of lower energy losses, increasing energy efficiency by 15% compared with a mid-drive motor, and allowing the user’s activity to be extended in an environmentally friendly way up to a distance of almost 190 km.

In addition, the versatility provided by the X Series platform allows bicycle brands to build eBikes with a pedal assist sensor or with a cadence and torque sensor, creating different riding experiences.

One of the innovations of this system is that the installation of the torque sensor allows for a much more precise watt analysis, enabling the motor to respond to the rider’s needs at all times. Also, the technology together with AI and machine learning means that the eBike learns from the rider’s behavior and adapts to both riders and their environment.

The MAHLE X30 System is customized according to the DNA of the bike brand that implements it on its models, as well as by discipline and, customer philosophy. The motor mapping is defined together with the manufacturer concerned and implemented on the eBikes at the end of the production line. This leads into a special bike and riding experience on each different brand, behaving differently even when using the same system.

The launch of the new MAHLE X30 System is associated with partners in the bike industry such as Bianchi in road, Husqvarna and Stevens, among others.



A simple regenerative braking mini brake lever would be so much better for long downhills, and improve safety !!!
