ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM
MAKING CYCLING SAFER
The bicycle continues to be a favored mobility device because of its ease of use, low environmental impact, and adaptability. SHIMANO Anti-lock Braking System by Blubrake enhances e-bike safety to help riders stay safer and reduce common causes of e-bike accidents.
SHIMANO ABS by Blubrake helps prevent two common causes of e-bike accidents.
Stay in control
SHIMANO ABS by Blubrake helps lower the risk of uncontrollable skids caused by the front brakes biting too hard and locking up the front wheel.
Our ABS also helps lower the risk of the rear wheel lifting and launching the rider over the handlebars when the front brakes are applied too forcefully.
Stay in control with SHIMANO ABS by Blubrake
Our ABS helps riders retain bike stability and stop safely on wet/dry pavement and rough surfaces* by keeping both wheels on the road and rolling. A speed sensor on the front wheel monitors wheel rotation and activates ABS if the wheel slows beyond what is expected for the bike's speed. When ABS is activated, the system applies modulated braking force on the front wheel to reduce the chances of the front wheel locking up and/or the rear wheel lifting.
*This ABS is not intended for steep downhill or aggressive mountain riding.
Cycling in the city
Fully enjoy e-bike commutes and leisure rides with the ability to safely react to pedestrians or vehicles with smooth and controlled deceleration, even on wet or snowy roads.
The ABS's braking algorithms are tuned to provide greater grip and traction for e-biking on mildly rough terrain.
Confidently carry cargo
E-Cargo bikes have powerful brakes designed for stopping with heavy loads. Our ABS lowers the risk of front-wheel lockup when traveling light so you can stay in control no matter how much you're hauling.
OUR ABS CAN HELP HEIGHTEN THE SAFETY OF ALMOST ANY E-BIKE.
- The compact control unit combines electronic and mechanical parts and can be neatly integrated inside a bike frame.
- The external version (BS-AS300-O) can be added to existing frames with a bottle cage mount without any special modifications and is compatible with a wide range of frames and forks.
- It is compatible with a wide range of SHIMANO brakes and e-bike styles.
- It can be installed on bikes with wheel sizes ranging from 16 to 29 inches.
