• Warning!!

    Riding a tuned or deristricted EMTB is not a trivial offence and can have serious legal consequences. Also, many manufacturers can detect the use of a tuning device or deristricting method and may decline a repair under warranty if it was modified from the intended original specification. Deristricting EMTB's can also add increased loads for motors and batteries. Riding above the local law limit may reclassify the bike as a low-powered bike, requiring insurance, registration and a number plate.

    Be aware of your local country laws. Many laws prohibit use of modified EMTB's. It is your responsibility to check local laws. Ignoring it, has potential implications to trail access, and risk of prosecution in the event of an accident.

Orbea Wild SpeedBox 1.2b Install

Received the SpeedBox 1.2b and installed today. Documented the install with a few pictures.

I will say that rear suspension bikes will take some creativity on the install. The wheel magnet sensor wire has to have some play in it to account for the suspension travel. On my install, I couldn’t fit the rim magnet simulator under the motor cover. I ended up mounting on the outside of the cover. (I’m looking to find a removable cover for this, that can be affixed to the factory orbea motor cover.) the rest of the unit fits fairly easy under the motor cover.

Out of concern for wire wear on the magnet sensor wire, I used rubber grommets to protect the wires entry into the motor cover area. I also used protective wire loom for extra durability on the exposed wiring. It’s not beautiful….

Seems to work as advertised. I think I run outta gear at about 35 or 36 mph without pedaling at a ridiculous cadence. The motor pushed the whole way.

@FlobossX Is this still working well? Thanks
I’ve been trying to return. Was getting some strange errors. One was battery switch stuck on.. was having issues getting the rim magnet simulator to show speed in the flow app. Also couldn’t physically get the rim mag simulator to fit inside the stock motor cover without some modifications. I ended up mounting on the outside of the cover,(where I ride, the chip
Police are non existent).

Can I ask why you didn’t get your local bike shop to convert the rim magnet to the Bosch slim sensor speed sensor and then run a normal smart speed box?

It details it’s compatible in the manual.
