The "+E-Tube port" version is intended for electric bikes that do not have a free E-Tube port - usually these are bikes with one of the following components:
Satellite System ON/ OFF Switch
Di2 electronic derailleur
Activation / Deactivation of kit:
turning off /
turning on/off the lights
Maximum speed: Unlimited
Display on screen: Actual speed up to 23 km/h
Compatible with: EP8 engines

This reworked tuning kit, with completely new hardware and firmware, is intended for your electric bike with a Shimano motor.
The SpeedBox 1.3 completely removes the speed limit and when using the kit, the current speed is displayed up to 23 km/h.
If you prefer to see the actual speed in the SpeedBox app during the whole ride, we recommend you to buy the SpeedBox 1.3 B.Tuning for Shimano. You can connect the SpeedBox 1.0 B.Tuning for Shimano to our SpeedBox App.
Compared to the previous SpeedBoxes for Shimano, this product is connected to the E-Tube port. It is therefore necessary that the motor of the electric bike, on which you want to install the new version of the SpeedBox, has a free E-Tube Port. Without a free E-Tube Port, it is not possible to install the SpeedBox.
The E-Tube Port is usually not free when the bike is equipped with an automatic Di2 derailleur or when the switch is integrated in the frame of the bike - this is the Satellite System ON/OFF Switch (EW-SW100, EW-SW300).
How does the SpeedBox 1.3 work?
When the lights are off, you can drive at unlimited speed. The chip can be easily deactivated by turning on the lights. If you want to use the lights independently of the SpeedBox, you don't have to connect the red fork, the SpeedBox will always be active. If you don't have any lights on your bike, the SpeedBox 1.3 will always be on.
To facilitate the correct installation of the SpeedBox chip on your electric bike, we use special connectors, differently colored. Thanks to this equipment, the installation of the chip is really simple. We have also prepared detailed instructions and videos that will help you to install your unboxing kit yourself. Uninstalling the unboxing kit is as easy as installing it. If you have any problems with the coupling of the unboxing kit with your bike, please do not hesitate to contact our team.
Important: Before installing the SpeedBox on a brand new electric bicycle, it is necessary to ride at least 1 km before activating the SpeedBox.
