How do you adjust the clock on your eMTB? Many of us are confronted with this question when we change from daylight savings to standard time at the latest. We’ll show you how to adjust the clock on a Bosch Intuvia or KIOX display
Whenever we change from daylight savings to standard time and vice versa we ask ourselves: do you turn the clock backwards or forwards? Although somewhat trite, we’ve got a mnemonic verse to help you remember: in the spring you put your garden furniture on the porch at the front. In autumn you put them back in the shed.
Different displays – different ways to adjust the clock
How you adjust the clock on a Bosch eMTB depends largely on the display you’re using. If you’ve got a Bosch Purion display on your bike, there is no need to adjust the clock because it doesn’t display the time. The clock on the Nyon model gets updated automatically either when you connect your smartphone or via its integrated GPS module – no need for you to do anything. Only the Kiox and Intuvia displays have to be adjusted manually.

On the Intuvia display, you need to push a combination of buttons. Turn the motor on and then press the reset and info button simultaneously for about two seconds. Once you’re in the settings menu, you can adjust the clock with the lower row of buttons (the on/off and the light buttons). To save your settings, press the reset button again for about two seconds.
