Intelligent shifting sensor

Gearsensor.com is based on an intelligent shifting sensor fixed on the shifting cable, which is reducing or cutting off the motor power when the rider shifts. Because of specific differences of shifting systems gearsensor.com is producing two different versions. The first version is GS-I which is focused to be used on internal gear hubs (IGH) equipped e-bikes. The second version is GS-D which is targeting e-bikes with derailleurs.

The development of gearsensor.com products started in 2011. Since that time testing took 3 years. Testing resulted in construction and SW modifications. Mass production has started in second half of 2014.

Gearsensor.com is compatible with the below listed mid-drive unit:

  • Bafang Max drive
  • Bafang BBS (BBS01, BBS02, BBSHD)
  • binova flow
  • cleanmobile
  • Dapu
  • Ebond
  • Mpf drive

Currently gearsensor.com works on compatibility with other European, US and Asian manufacturers of mid-drive units. Newly compatible drive units will be gradually announced on www.gearsensor.com.

Apart from 20 e-bike brands partly mentioned above many other brands are testing gearsensor.com for MY2017.

More gearsensors

Gearsensor.com is not specified only for e-bike manufacturers, but it is also specified for mid-drive conversion kit markets. In these markets gearsensor.com is already a well-established accessory for Bafang BBS conversion kits (BBS01, BBS02, BBSHD).

Currently new gearsensor.com models are under development. These new models will not replace current models, but will extend gearsensor.com range of products. New models are going to keep the fundamental gearsensor function, it means reducing or cutting off the motor power during shifting. In addition the new models will offer data storage and processing important for controlling mid-drive units. The new models will also offer other possibilities to transfer data and support new communication protocols.
