NEW E-TUBE RIDE APP COMPLETES THE SHIMANO STEPS E-BIKE EXPERIENCE

View all those important ride details on your smart phone.

A new Shimano app is now available for e-bike riders to monitor all their riding information in a new, simple and bold smart phone display.

The E-TUBE RIDE app can be used to connect all the SHIMANO STEPS e-bike drive units, including the MTB-orientated E8000 and E7000 systems, and the city/trekking and commuter E6100 and E5000 systems.

The new app offers consumers an alternative to using the SHIMANO STEPS system computer (including the SC-E8000/7000/6100 units), which can help bring down the cost of an e-bike.

Different screen display options showing riding details in ECO and BOOST modes on the SHIMANO STEPS E7000 and E8000 systems

Features of the E-TUBE RIDE app include:

  • display of important riding metrics such as Speed, Gear, Distance, Support Mode, Automatic Shifting Gear, Torque level, Time of Day, Lights, Battery level and Remaining Distance.
  • display of important riding metrics such as Speed, Gear, Distance, Support Mode, Automatic Shifting Gear, Torque level, Time of Day, Lights, Battery level and Remaining Distance.
  • display of warnings, such as low battery life or other system issues (eg speed sensor out of alignment, drive unit calibration needed, etc), which are linked to a web address for on-the-go additional explanations
  • regional customisations such as language and metric/imperial measurements
  • colour displays to quickly illustrate support modes
  • touch screen technology, meaning the screen display can be easily customised whilst riding with pinch or swipe motions

To use the app you need the new EW-EN100 bluetooth device to pair your phone with your bike and handle the transfer of information. The device also contains a toggle switch that allows you to change drive unit support modes instead of using the switch on the left hand side of the handlebar, which brings the potential to create an even more economical e-bike.
