Integrated E-Bike Systems Swiss Made

Since 1961, the Swiss company maxon has been at home in the drive industry. We develop and build electric drives that pack some real power. Our brushed and brushless DC motors are leading the industry worldwide. They are used wherever requirements are high and engineers cannot afford compromises: maxon motors drive NASA's Mars rovers. They are installed in insulin pumps and surgical power tools. You can find them in humanoid robots and in high-precision industrial applications, in tattoo machines, passenger aircraft, camera lenses, race cars, and cardiac pumps.

Besides high-quality micromotors, gearheads, encoders, and controllers, we also offer complete mechatronic systems – including battery management systems and master controllers. And we support our customers with our knowledge and experience. maxon engineers are true partners when it comes to finding a solution and adapting it precisely to customer needs.

    50 Nm from only 3.5 kg. Maximum efficiency due to an ironless rotor. The hub motor can be configured for various speeds: 25, 45 km/h, or 20 mph.

  • Sensors

    Our carefully fine-tuned speed and torque sensors continuously capture operating data to ensure a perfectly natural riding experience.

  • Cloud Service & App

    Collect ride data, adjust personal settings, navigate, or request support – these are only a few of our app’s capabilities.

  • Twist Shift & Display

    Intuitive HMIs are very important to us. In addition to a modern display, our portfolio also includes various twist shifters with LED indicators.

  • Controller

    The central controller is the heart of the e-bike system. It uses the CANopen protocol and can be adjusted individually.

  • Battery

    As a systems partner, we offer attachable or integrated lithium ion batteries. We have our own battery management system (BMS) and manufcture custom components, from prototypes up to serial production.
