About Me

Here, you can log out of the COBI.Bike app or enter personal information which are for example used to calculate the calories that you have burned during your bike ride.

My Bike

Bike Information

Personalize your COBI.Bike by entering information about your bike and by choosing a color that changes the COBI.Bike theme and status LED at the hub. The settings for your thumb controller and engine should be fixed and entered by default when paired to your hub.

Bike Settings

Choose the Smart Screen option, turn on or off the hub sounds for audio feedback and choose your source of speed.

Speed Sources

You can choose between three different speed sources:

  1. Smooth speed: Calculates speed by fusing data from GPS, speed- and motion sensors

  2. Motor/Bluetooth Sensor speed: Speed data is transmitted from a Bluetooth bike sensor or directly from your eBike motor

  3. GPS speed: Speed data is derived from GPS  and ignores speed sensors.

Energy Saver - "Smart Screen"

This feature lowers the brightness of your display automatically to increase the battery life. If important information is shown on the screen or you use the thumb controller the screen returns to full brightness immediately.

Hub Information and Firmware Update (Hub and AmbiSense Rear Light)

Here you can find your serial number, turn off your hub, delete your bike profile and update the firmware of your hub.

Firmware Update for Hub and Rear Light

Hub:

Updating the hub’s firmware is only possible when your smartphone is paired with the hub.

  • For regular bikes: Please make sure that the battery pack is charged to at least 50%.
  • For eBikes: If possible, please attach your eBike to a power source.

Then, go to Settings > My Bike > Hub Information > Firmware and follow the instructions.

Rear Light:

Updating your rear light’s firmware is only possible when your smartphone is paired with the hub.

  • For regular bikes: Please make sure that the battery pack is charged to at least 50%.

  • For eBikes: If possible, please attach your eBike to a power source.

Go to Settings > My Bike > AmbiSense Rear Light and follow the instructions. Make sure that the hub, smartphone, and rear light are in proximity to each other.

Turning off the Hub (Hibernation-Mode)

If you would like to turn off your COBI.Bike hub completely and also turn off the Bluetooth connection which allows to wake up COBI.Bike with the app, please follow these steps:

  1. Remove the battery pack or switch off your eBike

  2. Only iOS: Wake up COBI.Bike by tapping on the status bar

  3. Go to Settings > My Bike > Turn COBI.Bike Hub off

→  If the hub is successfully put into hibernation mode the status bar on the homescreen states: “Hub is not around”

In order to turn COBI.Bike on again you need to either insert the external battery pack for regular bikes, long hold the hub button, or – for eBikes only – press the power button of your eBike.

Delete Bike Profile

Deleting your bike profile removes the 1:1 connection between your smartphone and the hub. From that point on any smartphone can be connected to the hub. The activation is removed and thus everybody can now activate your COBI.Bike.

Steps to deactivate the 1:1 connection:

  1. Go to My Bike > “Delete Bike Profile”

  2. You will be directed to the guided setup interface where you can choose to log out of your account in the upper right corner of your display

Attention: Logging out of your account without deleting your bike profile first is insufficient and the 1:1 connection is still active. If you gave the COBI.Bike system to somebody else without deleting your bike profile first, you will need to contact the customer support in order for the other person to be able to connect his/her smartphone to the hub.

Ride Settings

Change the measurement units for distance, weight, and temperature or add fitness sensors. Please refer to the Fitness chapter to find out how to connect your sensors and to view a list of recommended and tested sensors.
