Smartphone mounting, charging and control.

Less Set-Up. More Action.

We love smartphones and their evolving performance: that’s why the COBI hub puts them at the center of everything. As the mission control for the entire COBI experience, the hub securely holds, protects, charges, and manages your phone while cycling. Think of it as the brain your bike always wanted.

Mounting options

Put your phone* into the robust mount case, slide it on the hub, and be assured that your phone will stay in place – even on bumpier rides. Available for iPhone 6 and 6s in standard and plus sizes and iPhone 7 in standard size (comes with a clear and protective rain cover) and as a universal mount for most smartphones up to six inches in size. On heavy trails or in really bad weather, just put your smartphone in your pocket. COBI communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth still controlled by the thumb controller.

Smartphone Hub

The COBI hub is the perfect way to secure your phone to your handlebars. Installation is quick, easy, and comes with bike-ready robustness. It is also the central intelligence for COBI with sophisticated sensors and wireless (Bluetooth/ANT+) connections. The hub is permanently attached to your handlebars* using a robust screw-on mechanism.

Continuous Phone Charging

COBI continuously charges your phone while riding. For regular bikes, COBI comes with a detachable and rechargeable battery pack that extends your phone's battery life. For bikes with a dynamo hub an optional charging cable will be offered, which will extend the battery life. COBI for eBikes with Bosch motor* is powered directly from the eDrive battery.

The intuitive six-button thumb controller makes sure you’re in control of all COBI features, including the app, while keeping your hands where they belong: securely gripping your handlebars. A dedicated bell button also helps to increase your safety.

The award-winning interface with its sleek and intuitive design has been optimized for use on bikes.

And thanks to the integrated thumb controller, you can keep your hands on the handlebars and your eyes on the road. Finally, no more smartphone juggling while riding.

Clean and sleek design

Think bike computer on steroids. The COBI dashboard gives you quick access to speed, weather, fitness, and performance info in a beautiful interface that will make your car dashboard jealous. For that extra kick of motivation, the performance bar visualizes how much effort you’re putting in – the bar fills up depending on your speed, weight, and gradient.

Bike optimized turn-by-turn navigation and weather forecasts

Less Fiddling. More Riding.

We reimagined navigation and weather forecasts from a cyclist’s point of view. The full-size bike navigation, based on OpenStreetMap, is completed by extremely accurate weather data with down-to-the-minute forecasts.

Quick route planning

The blazing-fast route selection begins with a tap on the home screen. It takes your current bike location into account, which means setting up the perfect route is done in just three steps. COBI lets you choose between the fastest, shortest, and quietest route, taking into account relevant information like ground surface. – Connect your Komoot account to extend the best connected biking system with the best tour planning experience. Upload great GPX-tours from the community or create bike-type optimized multi-destination tours or round trips – even on the go. All saved routes will instantly appear within COBI to enjoy full-size 3D or 2D navigation with turn-by-turn voice commands.

Turn-by-turn bike navigation

For optimal bike route guidance, the COBI App offers a beautiful full-size navigation with turn-by-turn voice feedback – based on OpenStreetMap (OSM). You can switch 3D perspective or 2D top down map view with the Thumb Controller at any time. The COBI navigation uses vector maps to reduce mobile data usage. Feel free to download global offline maps for free to navigate even without internet connection.

Real-time biking weather

Working with the world’s best data providers, COBI gives you a minute-precise, hyper-local forecast for your bike ride – indicating chances of rain, felt temperature, and other important info.

    AmbiSense Light System

    Less Dull. More Brilliant.

    Bike lights have come a long way since those bulky dynamos. Inspired by modern cars, we created a distinctive system that makes sure you are always visible to others. The sensor-based smart lighting comes with three different modes for varying conditions: daytime running light, low-power beam, and full beam. What’s more, it includes a clever rear light with optional turn signals (and an upcoming collision avoidance function).

    AmbiSense Front Light

    Turn it on manually or set it to automatic to let COBI turn it on for you when it’s getting dark. The bright front light meets the German road traffic licensing regulations, the StVZO – one of the most demanding certifications worldwide. There are three modes for varying conditions: daytime running light, low-power beam, and full beam.

    Safety and Security

    Less Worries. More Protection.

    COBI helps to keep your bike and your bike ride safe and secure. The integrated water-resistant speaker doubles as an electronic bell as well as a loud alarm that helps to keep thieves away from your bike.

      Your smartphone is the key
