Whether you want to keep an eye on your speed, the distance you have travelled, or how much battery life you have left, the head unit on most e-Bikes offer all this information and, in some cases, much more. Some head units have a map and navigation system built in and others offer information ideal for training sessions (power output, cadence etc). These head-units not only offer information but give you the facility to change the power setting depending on terrain and fitness levels at the touch of a button. Most e-Bikes have varying power settings and being able to change from one to the other is vital for battery life and ensuring you’re able to make the most of your e-Bike.
These mini-computers are fitted to ensure you get the most out of your e-Bike and are built to last. However, we at J E James understand that accidents happen and when parts are broken or lost, it’s nice to be able to replace them with the same or a compatible unit, at the very least. Bosch, Shimano, Yamaha, Panasonic, Brose and some major bike manufacturers offer replacement head-units for just such occasions ensuring your e-Bike stats are to hand when needed.
e-Bike head units may offer a range of functions including:
· Distance travelled
· Current, Maximum and Average Speed
· Battery Life
· Motor Power Level Setting
· Navigation and/or maps
· Heart Rate (with compatible transmitter)
The type of unit fitted depends very much on the make and model of bike and should the time come when you need to replace the unit, it’s good to know a replacement is available. Our e-Bike parts and accessories section is designed to assist you in finding the right unit for your bike.
