Facts

Powered direct drive (Pedelec)

The bimoz is a powered direct drive (Pedelec) that adjusts to your riding habits, your fitness level and your personal preferences. A slender but powerful direct drive is used (limited to 250 W in accordance with EU-guidelines). This technology has the advantage that it works virtually wear-free, with high rotational speeds, and high top speeds.

For you on your bicycle something else is important:
The contact-free direct drive creates no noise or vibration. No gears or chains are required for power transmission, because the drive works at the "native point". The integrated type design is fully integrated into the bottom bracket spindle and allows the use of a chain and hub gears or back pedal brake. In contrast to solutions on the back or front wheel it has the advantage that the driving characteristics of the bicycle is completely preserved. If the bimoz is turned off, you ride your bike in the traditional way. The bimoz is one of the world's lightest, highest performing bicycle drives. Including the battery pack, it weighs just 1.97 kg. If you have to carry your bike to the basement, every gram counts. All together that means: The bimoz fits almost any bike: Mountain bikes, road bikes, city bikes etc.

The bimoz feeling

We also are avid cyclists, and we get on a bicycle to GO BIKE RIDING. We like the activity, and love the sport to experience the environment – smelling tasting, seeing. We want more people to have fun cycling – actually EVERYONE! Mums, dads, granddads and grandmas, sporty people and wimps – politicians, doctors and whoever. And we are like you: The mountain, which lies between our work and our home is sometimes a challenge, sometimes an annoying evil. One does not want to do sport every day! On these days you just wish that your bike has a motor. On the other hand, sporting cyclists are at a disadvantage in the flatland. Mountains and hills that have earned this designation? Nil!

You ride – bimoz helps
Once someone has enjoyed riding a bicycle with bimoz, he quickly forgets everything else. The bimoz "assists" when riding, without demanding that you adapt yourself to it. You change gear as before, only now you have the feeling that your legs can do much more. With prolonged cycling in hilly terrain this is a blessing. Anyone who has tested the bimoz, has gotten off with a smile – for some, it was a wide grin. If cycling looks like this in the future, the health insurance should be less worried about public health. The low weight is interesting for racing cyclists and mountain bikers. Here, the bicycle is very often carried, and the 1.97 kg, the drive incl. battery pack weight, is a real treat. Your bike remains your bike – conventional Pedelec conversion kits will never deliver that.

The patented solution

for a booming market

And now the bimoz enters the game!
In contrast to an ordinary (dumb) E-bike or Pedelec drive, the bimoz, due to its direct drive can do much more than other E-bikes or Pedelec drives. Because this type of drive, which does its work with high-precision and performance, for example, in mechanical engineering, wind power or medical technology, is capable of driving much more.

Of course the drive helps you in the mountains: The harder you step on the pedals, the more the bimoz supports you. You can easily set up this support. If you have a weak day, you expend more energy and ride up the mountain, as if you were a super hero – great feeling. Via the control unit, the bimoz is switched on and can be set infinitely to the needed support. The drive has a torque of up to 50 Nm. Depending on speed, temperature and topography the bimoz can give you support for up to 150 kilometers.

Your bike is your coach

bimoz is able to measure how fast your heart rate is and generate an extra option. That is for example specific CARDIO TRAINING – WITH YOUR BICYCLE! You enter your target pulse via the bimoz app and the bimoz provides the support if you exceed it, or provides resistance if you have not yet reached it. Your bicycle therefore keeps you on your toes and shields you against an overload.

The training function behaves in a similar way. In the absence of mountains, the bimoz allows you to simulate them. Several training programs are available via the app which give you the feeling (in your legs) of taking part in a stage of the Tour de France (it looks really strange for bystanders :) ).

You can program you own your stage. You know yourself very well when the oxygen saturation in the blood for performance is usually high enough. Via Timeline you can set your "mountains" in the time, which is ideal for your training. You can then share this with friends so that several have the same training effect. As a result, you get your ERGOMETER TRAINING in the wild, with statistics and everything you need. The bimoz is more than the sum of its parts.

FAQ's

Where can I buy the bimoz?

On Indiegogo there are "Perks" which are packages with corresponding equipment. At this moment in time there is no alternative way to order something anywhere else. If you have no PayPal-account or credit card, contact our support team at: support@bimoz.ch

When are the perks expected to be delivered?

We will start delivery in January 2018.

How fast is the shipping?

Please email us on: shipping@bimoz.ch

What is included in the delivery?

According to the perk you order you will get the elements which are in the description. The bimoz-system always includes the connector, the control-unit, a battery, the power regulator, a bluetooth-speed-detector and the installation guide.

Can I pick-up the bimoz locally?

No, we only offer shipping at the moment.

Do you offer a warranty? If so, how does the completion or transaction work?

We offer a two years limited warranty according to the EC regulations. If you have further questions, please contact our service: support@bimoz.ch

Who do I contact if I have questions concerning the product or the payment?

Please contact our support team directly regarding this at: support@bimoz.ch

Why is the bimoz so light?

Because it is the first gearless permanent magnet direct drive, which makes it quiet, robust and brilliantly simple in construction and requires only a minimal time to install.

How good is the quality?

We deliver high quality – made in Europe!

What kind of feeling is it to drive the bimoz system?

Since the bimoz system is directly linked to the bottom bracket, the engine support fits perfectly on the turn – we call it „the flow“! The highly sensitive sensors optimally adjust the motor support to match your pedalling: bike riding remains bike riding and the support adjusts itself to your “flow.” This makes the support seem very smooth, harmonized and integrated into your own riding style.

Must I necessarily press in the pedals?

Yes, of course! This is what makes cycling what it is. A little movement is good for your health. This means when you press in the pedals the bimoz gives you support. You decide how much by regulating the amount of support. Scooter driving is something completely different, and takes away the fun of riding.

Can I drive the bimoz system without motor assistance?

Because bimoz is a gearless direct drive motor, your bicycle can be used without motor support as a normal bike without any friction or resistance!

Is the bimoz meant just for old people?

No! The bimoz is for all people. Women who cannot keep up so readily with their sporting men, children who have the same problem as their fathers, older people who have the problem as their grandchildren – commuters, sporty people, fitness fanatics or their complete opposites. The bimoz app will make it especially essential for us all.

Can I use the bimoz for any bicycle?

Primarily yes. There are a few bikes where the bimoz does not fit. 2 factors are crucial: The length of the frame (for the battery with control) and the crank length. The bimoz will have 5 different crank lengths, covering about 95% of the usual crank lengths. As to which crank length you require is something we can determine after the Indiegogo campaign is successfully completed. Of course the bicycle should be in an impeccable state and safe to use on the roads. Especially the brakes should work correctly. If you have any questions, please contact our support team at: support@bimoz.ch

How do I know how to install the bimoz sytem on my bicycle?

We provide you with a full installation guide, also you will find installation videos on our Youtube channel for all different typ of pedals (more to come).

Do I need extra tools to install the bimoz on my bicycle?

No, any special tools are part of the delivery.

Do I need to bring my bicycle to a workshop to have it installed

No, because the bimoz is inherently a retrofit kit. Briefly:
1. Mount battery
2. remove only the left pedals and crank
3. put our connector on your bottom bracket
4. fit bimoz
5. attach control unit and affix cable
6. finished!
However, we do admit that you must have had a wrench in your hand. The time of the installation amounts to about 20 minutes.

How far do I get with the bimoz?

Honestly? To this question there are many answers or none! Depending on altitude, terrain and level of support, full-day tours are also feasible. But honestly, you are riding a bicycle, and if you ride straight ahead or downhill you can still step on the pedals. The bimoz functions without drive, without friction or extra effort on your part as with your normal bicycle. As additional batteries are offered, you should pack a second battery in your backpack on exhausting tours. For the ride to work (average 19 kilometers, in major cities 11 kilometers) a single battery charge is always sufficient.
Small battery: up to 60 km*
Large battery: up to 150 km*
* depending on speed, terrain, rider weight, driving conditions

What is the maximum torque?

The torque is limited to 50 Nm, this is to protect the switching gear

Can the bimoz get wet?

Yes, the bimoz works in any weather, at any temperature, and also in all types of terrain. Always make sure that the battery does not stay out all night that is something they generally do not like.

Is it possible to lock the battery to the bicycle? Is the battery removable?

The battery is securely fixed to the bicycle during operation. The battery can be removed on its own for example when charging.

What is the lifespan of the battery?

Up to 1000 cycles over a period of 5 years.

Can I use other battery packs?

Unfortunately not, because bimoz is a self-contained closed unit. The bimoz is a smart drive and can do more than all other Pedelec retrofit kits. The controls for the bimoz and the connection for the bimoz app are located in the lower part of the battery. For this reason, batteries from other manufacturers are not suitable for the bimoz.

Where can the bimoz be used legally?

Everywhere in structures with your local road laws.

Do I need an addition registration for the bimoz, or an additional driver's license?

You do not need a license for the bimoz (support up to 25 km/h, max. 250 watts). However, there are the relevant road traffic regulations in different countries. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact our customer service: support@bimoz.ch

Do I need any safety equipment when using bimoz?

No, but we do generally recommend wearing a helmet.

How much is the bimoz app?

Nothing – if the Crowd Funding targets are reached, we will provide you with this app for Android and iOS for free and will continuously maintain and develop it, so you can really use it.

Is there also a cell phone mount for the bimoz?

No, because these are available elsewhere for a reasonable price. There are already proven products from the Internet or bike stores – we do not want to reinvent the wheel here.
