RedPed: The new dimension of E Bike tuning
This new tuning tool belongs to the “BlackPed” product family (www.blackped.com). The most important basic function of the RedPed module is the adjustment of the engine support from 15 to 75 km/h - by the way, with correct speed indication in the E Bike Display. Another interesting feature is the logbook for (optional) every ride in connection with the app and many other fine adjustment possibilities for your E Bike (e.g. the wheel circumference).
For practical reasons RedPed offers for Android devices two speedometer views on the smartphone: "Easy" and "Pro". Depending on the operating system and the motor variant, up to 25 values can be read live on the smartphone. You can also set the activation code for the RedPed yourself: This allows you to safely activate or deactivate the tuning on your electric bike without using your smartphone. You can also define the Bluetooth visibility between the module and the smartphone in the app.
In summary, it can be said that the RedPed module is a more advanced version of the popular BlackPed+ module with many improvements and, very important, correct speed indication on the E Bike display. In addition, the RedPed module has many other functions, making it probably the most powerful E Bike tuning product of all.
RedPed modules are available for the following E Bike motors:
Tip: First you should download the EBT app for RedPed (instructions: EBT_manual.pdf) to make sure that it runs on your smartphone. If this is the case, you can order the RedPed module for your particular E Bike drive system immediately. After you have installed it you can optimize your E Bike and make it slower or faster. Numerous demos and instructions can also be found in the app (attention: with the Android App the location sharing function always has to be activated):
