BLACK PEPPER software updates out now

evation Motor Software 2.0 and Toolbox Software 2.0


The time has come! We are pleased to be able to provide you with two software updates called BLACK PEPPER, which will take your evation drive system’s riding experience to a new level. You can find out more on the respective download page. Here is a brief overview:

evation Motor Software 2.0

We’ve made major improvements to all areas of our evation Motor Software. The update is compatible with all evation systems.

  • Performance: The evation drive system’s motor control was completely overhauled from the ground up. The result is a marked improvement in efficiency, making it possible to get even more performance from the compact unit.
  • Cadence range: One of the most clearly noticeable performance enhancements is the delivery of power over a broad cadence range. The evation drive system now provides more efficient assistance at a constant motor output over a cadence range of 50–120 revolutions per minute.
  • Riding feel: From its inception, the evation drive system has delivered a ride characterized by gentle, natural assistance. But now, riders can enjoy an even more authentic feel: In extensive biomechanical analyses, we used complex algorithms and methods to develop riding dynamics that perfectly adapt to the rider’s individual pedaling style—to guarantee the ideal level of assistance in every riding scenario.
