Badass Box 4 for Pendix E Bike drive systems
Ride without limits and finally enjoy the full potential of your E Bike. The optimized version of the Badass Box is now also available in a version especially for electric bikes with Pendix mid-mounted motors (Pendix is a system which can be used to upgrade normal bikes into motorized E Bikes).
The Badass Box 4 removes the 25 km/h speed limit of your Pendix engine completely. The tuning can be switched on or off at any time. You only have to attach/remove the box and move the spoke magnet a little bit. With the optimised Badass Box 4 this can be done faster and easier than ever before, thanks to the slimmer housing and a patented snap lock.
This tuning tool is battery powered and has a range of around 7,000 km or 1 year (due to battery discharge). This is made possible by the use of a powerful AAA battery and the specially developed, patented field enhancement technology "FEET" ("Field Enhancement & Elimination Technology"). Of course, the battery can be replaced at any time without any tools. You will find suitable replacement batteries at a reasonable price at almost every corner.
Since the electronics of the Badass Box 4 are glued into the housing and sealed with a special sealing compound from the automotive industry, the device is very well protected against moisture and mechanical stress at the wheel.
The Badass Box 4 is a genuine quality product developed and manufactured in Germany. Each individual box is tested for correct function before and after casting.
How it works
As soon as the Badass Box 4 is plugged in, it transmits a modified signal. This works contactless, i.e. without any intervention in the motor electronics or software (your Pendix engine cannot be damaged). This will outwit the system and eliminate the 25 km/h speed limitation.
Due to this special functionality, the speedometer of the E Bike no longer shows the real speed when tuning is active (=box attached). This is also valid for derived values. We recommend that you use GPS-based additional devices to indicate the correct speed (e.g. smartphones or bicycle computers).
Compared to the previous versions, the Badass Box 4 for Pendix has a number of improvements:
- The completely redesigned, significantly slimmer housing means that installation situations that are too tight can no longer occur.
- The O-ring of the previous version has been replaced by a patented snap lock that allows the box to be attached and detached even faster.
- The CR2 battery has been replaced by a much more powerful AAA battery, giving it a longer range than ever before (up to 7,000 km).
- As of now, an optional cable tie at the snap lock can be used to secure the device, too.
The installation of this tuning tool is pleasantly simple and can also be carried out by technical laymen. With the Badass Box 4 it is not necessary to open the motor housing for installation.
The box simply needs to be mounted over the Pendix speed sensor next to the rear wheel. When the snap lock engages, you know that the box is securely attached to the sensor. If you wish, you can additionally secure the tool with cable ties.
Tip: When installing the magnet for the first time, replace the screw of the spoke magnet with the clamping screw (included with the delivery). Once this is done, you can easily move the spoke magnet in the future without any additional tools.
This is important because after placing the Badass Box 4 on the speed sensor, you must move the spoke magnet towards the edge of the housing in the direction of the snap lock. If the spoke magnet touches the Badass Box, place the spoke magnet as close as possible to the Badass Box and rotate it 90°. Now your E Bike is tuned and the 25 km/h speed limit of the Pendix engine has been lifted.
To undo the tuning, simply remove the Badass Box and return the spoke magnet to its original position. The E Bike is then restored to its original condition.
