Greater safety for e‑bikes: a new product by Blubrake and Shimano
E-bikes and e-cargo bikes have earned a fundamental role in future mobility and due to such exponential growth, their use is opening up to an increasingly wide audience: hence the need to develop effective solutions to increase the safety and reliability of these bikes. This is where Shimano ABS by Blubrake comes from: the sheer commitment to making e-bikes safer, facilitating their uptake even among less experienced riders.

Shimano ABS by Blubrake significantly reduces the risk of the front wheel lock-up and rear wheel lift-off, even during panic braking, thus improving the riding experience of every cyclist and reducing the number of accidents. The ABS can be fully integrated in the frame of e-bikes and e-cargo bikes and is offered by Shimano to manufacturers, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of Shimano brakes and electric kits, integrating with them in a simple and instant way. Shimano ABS by Blubrake benefits of the know-how and patents owned by the Italian company together with the solid technology, commercial and service network offered by Shimano.

All of this with the aim of contributing to the development of today’s mobility: connected, smart and sustainable.”
