Schaeffler presents chainless electric drive system “Free Drive” for bicycles.

Herzogenaurach/Friedrichshafen, Germany | August 30, 2021 | Networked, flexible, sustainable, and environmentally friendly: New mobility trends are placing high demands on products and technology. Schaeffler adopts an holistic approach to movement and offers solutions to meet all customer requirements, including those in the field of micromobility. At Eurobike 2021 in Friedrichshafen, the automotive and industrial supplier will be presenting the new “bike-by-wire” system, Free Drive, as an innovative solution for bicycles. The chainless drive system is a joint development with two-wheel electric drive specialist Heinzmann GmbH & Co. KG, which dispenses with the mechanical connection between the generator and motor, thus enabling completely new bicycle architectures and pedal configurations combined with an even lower requirement for wear parts.
