New technology partnership in bike, e-bike and pedelec market

NCTE AG (NCTE) and Schaeffler Technologies AG & Co. KG (Schaeffler) have agreed to a technological partnership for torque sensors in bike, e-bike and pedelec market. Read article

Bottom bracket with integrated torque sensor for pedelecs

NCTE sensors are a key component for improving the performance of pedelecs. Fully integrated into the bottom bracket, the sensor detects:

Rotational speed and direction, and torque (version RT)
Rotational speed and direction (version R)

as the key input parameter for the motor control unit.

User benefit

Enhanced driveability and driving pleasure of the bike, powerful, yet comfortable motor support, longer range and easy motor control. Strong commercial track record after five years of OEM production.
