The compact, durable 1.9″ hi-res display is meant to show speed data, assist mode, battery charge %, cadence, plus other personal rider performance data like heartrate from a 3-party connected monitor. Bosch didn’t really expand much more, beyond to say that they have built in the possibility for a lot of future functional expansion through software updates. Bosch calls the Kiox their “best and brightest display with more useful features than ever packed into such a compact unit”. It features automatic adjusting display backlighting, and its own internal battery for 20 mins of operation once disconnected from the e-bike.
OEMs can mount provide the Kiox with its standard quick release magnetic stem cap mount, or develop their own custom integrated handlebar mount solutions. Previewed at Eurobike, the Kiox has just officially been debuted at Interbike. So expect to see it popping up more in 2019, especially on next season’s high-end e-MTBs.
