Bosch gives the most for the investment. it has enough power and is reliable.

The problem with the Bosch is, it can’t handle water, keep getting it wet and its only a matter of time, tends to be sooner than later. In terms of reliability, I'd describe it as crap.

Simple answer: Polini

IP55 – that’s a clear step in the right direction. IP55 should be the starting point for ebike motors. Should be more reliable than the Bosch just because it should be far better at keeping the water out.

let DJI put the bike, motor on sale first. while they start it, train the service network, sales, support. in addition, Bosch, Shimano, Yamaha... make miracles out of engines. probably a bit better than Dji.

There is a lot to like about this. Personally I would have preferred they used the "tech" to go all out on lightweight. If they had restricted this to say 80Nm and 400Wh how light could they have got it? Energy density of the battery seems very good.
Not sure about the touch screen. Even with gloves that claim to work with touch screens (from TLD, FOX and 100%) I've never had a good experience operating my phone this way so I don't see the bike screen working very well.
I also have zero interest in controls on the right hand grip area. Ideal would have been zero handle bar controls and something like gesture control on the display in the TT (though I admit that precludes quick mode changes in the midst of tech problems).
Unfortunately I suspect that DJI will very much want to come in at the high end so not expecting this to be cheap or start any kind of price competition amongst the motor brands which is something I think we really need.
I believe in Rob’s video he shows changing the assist level with the button below the screen so should be able to go without handlebar controls. Also full fat bikes are where the bulk of the market is at so makes the most sense to start there in my opinion

Yes the slotted disc is paired with an inductive pickup to give very high-resolution wheel speed information which could provide better hill-start and walk mode performance and perhaps even traction control options. These inductive wheels are used in every modern car engine and are inside most mid-drive e-bike motors for crank speed measurement. With 42 slots this system reads wheel travel in 55mm (2.1") increments.

It's possible they could misalign one of the slots to denote each full revolution but they probably don't need to. They're already advertising an easy switch to 27.5" wheels with a flip chip so they're surely confident that the system will detect any cheaters. Bosch already does tamper-detection by comparing pedal cadence to the factory programmed gear ratio range as well as using the phone app to tattle whenever possible. There's no reason DJI wouldn't use their headtube GPS to do the same.

What bike is that CX on? My circumference is set at 2211mm, though I would like the minimum 2100.

Why is there a cable housing going to the AXS rear derailleur?

In terms of full fat vs SL where does this fit @Rob Rides EMTB . The peak specs obviously are high but it’s hard to figure out if it’s on the same level as the bosh etc
I need to have a go on the final version, but from what I remember on the prototype bike I have, the low down grunt at low cadence, the motor is not quite the same as the Bosch Race, but when you get to a regular cadence it seems a ton faster / more powerful.

The Avinox likes higher RPM to unleash it.

I'd like to see this motor in a full enduro spec bike.

Hi Rob,
Do you have any indication about bikes coming with this system in my25 or only AMFLOW ?

I find it a bit strange that they didnt already have a partner other than Amflow for the launch.
If they are only now starting to close partnerships than we will see bikes with the system in about 1.5-2 years .

These new motor brands deserve to succeed because frankly Shimano and Bosch lack innovation and are profiting heavily by trading on their brand. It's appalling that neither of them have released a gearbox design or worked on brining down the weight/bulk.
