Speed Tune Dongle for X35 Ebikemotion

  • How much faster will my bike go?

    • From our testing, the most improvement we have seen is 30kph (on a 25kph restricted motor). This is completely unweighted. On average customers have reported 28kph. The variance is dependant on rider weight and terrain an tyre rolling resistance.​

  • How much of a power increase will I get?

    • No extra power. This dongle only addresses the speed limitation. Power is determined by the the hardware itself ie. Battery voltage and motor.​

  • How does your product compare to others?

    • ​We were the first to provide a solution for the X35 system and has been on the market since August 2019. Late in 2020, inferior copies appeared on the market. One won’t fit a lot of models due to its shape and the other has very little water resistance and can short out the bike. Our product uses injection moulding to ensure that the system is completely water tight and its form is slim and sleek making it difficult to identify that it is installed on your bike.

  • How do I fit the dongle to my bike?

    • It is fitted underneath the non-driveside chainstay. simply disconnect the motor cable from the controller cable and put the dongle in between. Make sure the arrows on the plugs are aligned and firmly pressed in to ensure proper engagement.​ You can push the excess cable up into the downtube of the bike. Zip tie it in place with the provided zip ties and your done! Fitment may vary between manufacturers and models due to internal routing or cowlings. 

  • I am from the United States, does this work on bikes with higher restrictions?

    • The dongle works on both USA and NZ restricted bikes. You can expect the same improvement as the 25kph models which is up to 17%.​

  • My speed and distance is incorrect on my the app on my phone. Why is this?

    • As with nearly all speed restriction bypass systems, they trick the bicycles controller into not seeing the max speed (25kph/32kph). Therefor the actual speed shown on any display connected to the system will be incorrect and may vary between bike models. Our suggestion is to use an external GPS bicycle computer that is not connected to the bikes bluetooth.
