RedPed for Shimano
Finally the popular RedPed module is also available for E-bikes with Shimano drive systems. Like the other RedPed modules, this module offers you adjustment options that go beyond what most other E Bike tuning tools can offer. After installing the module, you can conveniently configure all settings using a smartphone app (EBT app for iOS or Android). The app and module are wirelessly connected via Bluetooth.
Of course, the core function of the module is the removal of the 25 km/h speed limitation of the E Bike engine. In contrast to many other tuning modules, the RedPed module has the advantage that you can set the maximum motor support to an individual value.
The installation of the RedPed module is simple and requires no special technical skills. The module must be connected between speed sensor and motor as well as motor and display. This is done very simply via plug connectors. The power supply of the module is provided via the light connection - therefore a separate battery is not required.
How it works: After installation, the module measures the actual speed and generates its own speed signal, which is transmitted to the engine control unit. By generating a lower speed, the 25 km/h limitation of the engine support is removed. The RedPed for Shimano thus works on the principle of "dynamic sharing", which is why the E Bike display will not show the correct speed when the tuning is active. You can, however, always view the actual (real) speed via the EBT app.
Our tip: Before you order the RedPed module, you should first download and install the EBT Smartphone app. Then you can check out if it runs on your smartphone. The app even has a special demo function for this. If the app is running, you can order the module with a clear conscience and speed up your E Bike.
