RedPed 2 for Shimano EP8 with and without electr. DI2

This tuning tool can be used to optimise or speed up e-bikes with Shimano EP8 motors. The RedPed 2 module removes the preset 25 km/h speed limit so that you can ride significantly faster with full motor support. The module is conveniently controlled via the RedPed app, which offers you various setting options. For example, you can set the maximum motor support to an individual value (from 15 to 45 km/h).

Important note: The e-bike display will only show half of the actual speed. Range and kilometre reading will also no longer be calculated correctly. However, you can have the real riding data, such as the current speed and the distance covered, displayed via the app. We therefore recommend simply attaching the smartphone to the handlebars so that you can keep an eye on all the data while riding - you can find suitable mounts in our shop.

Attention: Please do not carry out any updates on your Shimano e-bike.

After you have defined the settings of the RedPed2 module, you can activate the tuning module both via the app and via the control buttons of the e-bike. It is therefore by no means necessary to always take your smartphone with you.

RedPed 2 for Shimano EP8 - Functions & Features at a Glance

-25 km/h speed limit is removed.

-Maximum speed freely adjustable: Via the app, the maximum supported speed can be set to an individual value between 15 - 45 km/h (please note that the 45 km/h is the theoretical maximum speed - the real achievable speed depends on other factors, e.g. chain ring and motor).

-Tuning activation with app: Set whether the tuning should only be on for one ride or always.

-Tuning activation with e-bike: Alternatively, the tuning can also be activated by switching the light on and off. You can individually set how often the light has to be switched on and off to activate the tuning (0 to 20 times). A counter shows you how often the light has already been switched on and off.

-Tuning Timer: This function deactivates the tuning after a self-set time (between 10 and 180 seconds).

-"Visibility": Here you can set how long the module should be visible or findable in the app after the e-bike has been switched on. This prevents unauthorised access by third parties.

-"Combination for visibility": Here you can set how long the light must be switched on and off to make the module visible again.

-"Split speed at": Here you can set how the speed should be split (10-24 km/h).

-Set individual PIN. Set a 6-digit PIN to protect the module from unauthorised access.

-Set module name (9-digit).

-Optionally correct mileage after removing the module again.

Data display via app

The RedPed app not only allows you to adjust the settings of the tuning module, it can also show you useful riding parameters while on the road. You can customise the display according to your personal preferences - e.g. you can hide values or change the colours of columns & rows. You can also change the font size in the settings (Android) or zoom into the speedometer (iPhone).

Here are the driving parameters displayed:

-Tuning Status (On/Off)

-Current speed

-Maximum speed

-Driving time

-Average speed

-Current distance travelled

RedPed 2 for Shimano EP8 - Installation & Functionality

RedPed 2 is a module that has to be connected between the speed sensor and the motor. The RedPed 2 module measures the actual speed and generates its own speed signal for the motor control unit. By generating a supposedly lower speed signal, the 25 km/h speed limit is outsmarted. This makes it possible to drive much faster than 25 km/h with full engine support.

Due to this special mode of operation, however, various values, such as the mileage, are calculated incorrectly. However, the correct values can be read out via the RedPed app.

The RedPed 2 module is powered via a free display socket, so a separate battery is not required (the module is always on).

To connect the RedPed 2 module, you need access to the connectors on the motor. To do this, you need to temporarily remove the motor cover.

Note: A distributor+cable is needed if there is no display socket left in the motor. For the Shimano EP-8 series this is "EW-JC304" (4-way distributor) and "EW-SD300" (extension).

Special tools may be needed to install the module, for an EP8 drive this would be a Phillips screwdriver. Other tools may be necessary.


You can find detailed installation and operating instructions "here".

Customer reviews

Important: Tuning measures on e-bikes and e-scooters mean that they are no longer permitted for use on public roads. Legally permissible use is therefore only possible on private property or - if permitted - in competitions. Driving an e-bike or e-scooter modified by tuning measures on public roads can lead to criminal liability for driving without a license as well as driving without insurance coverage. Tuning measures on the e-bike and e-scooter can lead to a loss of warranty rights and manufacturer warranties. In addition, tuning measures can lead to a loss of insurance coverage and accident victim assistance benefits in the event of accidents. The e-bike (or e-scooter) modified by tuning measures is exposed to an additional load due to the higher speed, which can lead to safety risks.
