add-e NEXT
The perfect retrofit kit that turns your bike into an e-bike

The latest generation of add-e, add-e NEXT is completely redesigned and better than ever. The new electronics make it possible to drive almost noiselessly, even at maximum power, and the switch to new sensors makes it possible to achieve unprecedented control precision that is second to none. The add-e NEXT presented here is the latest generation of the smallest and lightest retrofit drive in the world.

You like to cycle, but sometimes it’s a bit too much for you and you want an e-bike? You love your bike but do not spend a lot of money just to drive a heavy and chunky e-bike?

Then add-e is just right for you!

State-of-the-art drive technology and engineering from Austria, the land of the mountains, make it possible to turn your bike into an e-bike in no time at all without anyone noticing. With add-e you have advantages of two worlds combined on your bike. Decide for yourself whether you prefer to drive electrically or with pure personal performance.

add-e NEXT can do both without restrictions.

Outwardly, add-e NEXT may not differ much from its previous versions, but inside, electronics, everything is new. Considerably higher computing power of the used μController now makes it possible to output the motor power 1000 times more accurately and much more evenly. This not only leads to more torque and more powerful support on the mountain but above all reduces the noise to almost zero. By using state-of-the-art power electronics, add-e NEXT is once again more efficient and can still provide proper support even in unfavorable driving situations.

What has been improved?

add-e NEXT has intelligent sensors that continuously calculate speed and crank speed while driving. With no cable, this information is transmitted in real time, providing unprecedented engine control precision. This makes it possible to optimize the switch-on delay after starting.

An additional advantage of the new Bluetooth sensors is evident during assembly.

From now on, it does not matter which chainring is combined with which crank and bike.

The installation is so easy and fits easily with every bike.

add-e NEXT drive unit The heart of our system

It is externally rather inconspicuous, but inside are the latest electronics and sensors. This ensures reliable and powerful propulsion.

In the sports version, the drive motor provides up to 600 watts. The maximum possible speed is 45 km / h.

About the power adjustment on the bottle battery can be selected between 5 levels of support.

As a result, with low support (50 watts – first stage), you can compensate for certain deficits when driving in a group, or annoying increases z. B. in the 4th stage (450 watts) effortlessly overcome.

add-e Battery

add-e relies on understatement. For the first time the drinking bottle battery is really a drinking bottle. The robust aluminum housing protects the high-performance cells from mechanical damage. The integrated safety electronics simultaneously ensure long battery life and safe charging.

In addition to the safety electronics, the ON / OFF switch or power adjustment is also part of the bottle battery. The upper attachment can be rotated for this purpose. With a total of 5 support levels, the electric power can be intuitively adjusted while driving.

The battery is offered in two different capacities. Both versions are suitable for the Lite version but also for the Sport Sets. The innovative quick-change system can also double the range easily by taking a second battery.

By default, the 7.2 Ah battery is included in the set. The extra charge 9 Ah version has the same dimensions and the same weight.

The 160 Wh battery provides enough electrical power to support more than 2 hours of continuous use, while the optional 200 Wh battery will last up to 25% longer.

Both battery variants have a six-level LED charge level indicator in the bottom.

  • About 50 km range
  • On / off & 5-stage power level regulation
  • Weight 1 kg
  • High performance lithium cells
  • Integrated safety electronics (BMS)
  • 22,2 Volt  
  • 7.2 Ah bzw. 9,0 Ah
  • 160 Wh bzw. 200Wh
  • Integrated charge level indicator in the bottom of the bottle

add-e Charger

The add-e charger is ideal for additional kilometers even during a tour. The compact dimensions and low weight characterize the “travel charger”. Not much bigger than a pack of cigarettes, it fits comfortably in almost every luggage bag and can be connected to any household socket. Due to the highest quality standards and the latest electronics, it is possible to achieve high charging performance without active fans or “humming” coils. Thus, the loading in the hotel room, restaurant or any other quiet place is no problem. For charging, the add-e charger is simply plugged into the specially prepared recess on the battery bottom and laid flat. An LED on the top of the case indicates the charging process. As long as the LED is lit red, only when it changes to green is the battery fully charged.

  • 200 g light
  • Small design – about the size of a pack of cigarettes
  • fanless and “hum-free”
  • reverse polarity protection
  • International use (100-230 Volt AC, 50-60 Hz)
  • 50 W charging power
  • LED charging indicator

Technical details add-e

The drive is the heart. Outwardly inconspicuous, only the friction roller and the swing arm are recognizable, inside the most modern electronics and sensors are installed. The anodised aluminum housing is both an engine mount and “quick-mount interface”.
