Reliable third generation tuning chip for e-bikes with Giant 2017-2022 motors (except SyncDrive Pro motor with RideControl Go)
SpeedBox 3.0 tuning chip enables to suppress the speed limiter on your electric bike. After the chip is installed your e-bike’s display shows real data, such as maximum and average speed, daily mileage and cruising range.
HOW DOES SPEEDBOX 3.0 WORK?
The tuning kit can be activated directly on your bike’s controller. After pressing the WALK button, a value of 9.9 km/h (6.2 mph) is displayed and from now on you will be able to ride at a speed of 40 km/h, 50 km/h and even more than 60 km/h.
To deactivate the tuning kit, press the WALK button again. The value of 2.5 km/h (1.6 mph) will appear on your display and the speed limit will reset to 25 km/h. Your e-bike will then work the same as before installation of the chip.
SpeedBox was also designed for e-bikes that do not have a classic control unit with Walk button. In this case you can just use the combination of + - + - buttons and SpeedBox will be activated. You can easily deactivate SpeedBox in the same way.
You can set the maximum speed of an electric assistance by changing modes by switching modes three levels up and then three levels down. An actual speed limit will be displayed after that. The maximum speed of an electric assistance can be switched by pressing WALK button shortly or by turning the rear wheel 360°. The value of 1,5 km/h on the display corresponds with the limit of 15 km/h, 2 km/h corresponds with the limit of 20 km/h, 2,5 corresponds with 25 km/h, 3,0 corresponds with 30 km/h, 9,9 corresponds with 99 km/h etc. The last displayed limit will be saved after 5 seconds of inactivity.
SpeedBox App for SpeedBox 3.0 B.Tuning

SpeedBox 3.0 B.Tuning is not limited to working with SpeedBox App. However, it is a great tool that will provide you with a complete overview of your performances.
Download SpeedBox App to your phone just before ordering the SpeedBox 3.0 B.Tuning chip. You can try out our demo version and get to know all the awesome features and, at the same time, make sure that the application is fully functional on your phone. To connect to the SpeedBox B.Tuning chip, your phone needs to be equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 or higher.
When connecting the SpeedBox chip to an e-bike you will find connectors coloured to make installation very simple. We have prepared detailed instructions and videos to make installation easy for you. Disassembly of our tuning chip is just as easy. If you have any troubles with installation or disassembly, do not hesitate to contact us.
If you are planning to install SpeedBox on a brand-new bike, make sure you ride it for at least 1 km before the chip is activated.

MOST COMMON MISTAKES DURING INSTALLATION
By far the most common reason why the chip does not work is when the small plugs of the chip are plugged into the wrong mating connectors. Unfortunately there are 2 red connectors both in red and in white. If the chip is plugged into the red connectors, the chip will not work.
THE RED LED ERROR – RideControl ONE
Giant distinguished between more than 40 different errors conditions, all of which lead to a red indicator. The RideControl One unfortunately shows only a very roughly information on the cause of the error. Once the red LED is on, the left LEDs, which normally indicate the support level, roughly show the cause of the error in the form of a blinking LED L1 - L5.
In the very case of Red LED errors please check the magnet position first. If the problem persist then remove the tuning and follow the correct installation procedures.
If the red LED error still shows up then contact us directly for a troubleshooting solution.
HOW TO SET UP THE DYNAMIC MODE (softer control behaviour)
The VOLspeed tuning should be installed following the standard procedure without interfering with the ‘dynamic mode’ setup.
To activate the ‘dynamic mode’ you should first ride your bike at speeds above the 10km/h with the speed mode active.
Once the tuning is set up, it should actually work permanently.
However, the tuning must always be activated first after switching on the bike. To do this, press the minus button for 3-5 seconds. Then the display should briefly show the set limit.
If this no longer works, you can try to run the setup again. To do this, press the minus button for 3-5 seconds, release it, and immediately press the plus button for 3-5 seconds. The display should show 11.1km/h as an indicator that the setup has been started. On a bike that supports up to 25km/h from the factory, no settings need to be changed. The numbers 11.1 / 10.0 and 25.0 are displayed in succession. Then the display shows 0km/h again and the tuning should be able to be activated normally.
If the setup cannot be activated either, an activation code may have been set. You can delete it by connecting the two small plugs of the chip together. The other two remain connected to the bike. Then switch on the bike and wait until the display shows 0,0km/h and switch it off again. This will delete the code. After that you should be able to activate the chip again as usual.
If the tuning can be activated, i.e. after pressing the minus button, the limit is displayed but the limit at 25km/h is not removed, most likely an incorrect bike type was set during setup. In the last step of the setup, where 25km/h is displayed by default, 32km/h and 45km/h can also be set. If this is set for a 25km/h bike, the limit will not be removed afterwards. Also in this case, run the setup again and do not change the values.
GIANT ANT+ & BLUETOOTH
Activation by pressing the 'PLAY' Button and then activate the tuning by WALK or WALK UP
GIANT EBIKES WITHOUT DISPLAY
IF YOUR BIKE DOES NOT HAVE A DISPLAY
You can easily setup the tuning without the display but you will not have any feedback as to whether the setup runs without errors. However, you can use the Giant RideControl app as a display.
How to use the app: VIDEO
2021 RIDE DASH EVO and RIDE DASH PLUS
These displays can be easily installed on the Giant Stance E and other Giant e-bikes that comes without display. To pair the display to your bike and to the VOLspeed please follow this VIDEO
The ride Dash Evo display is only compatible if it has the ride control ERGO controller. The ride control ERGO looks like exactly as the ride control ONE but it is different!
The ERGO controller has the part number 245-FLRMSP-xx , the ride control ONE the 245-FLED28-xx. You will find the number on the outside of the operating unit.
Additionally, there must be a round connector for the EVO-Display somewhere above the battery in the down tube. We are not sure if Giant equipped all bikes with this connector.
If you decide to retrofit the EVO-Display we would recommend to contact the Giant store first to check out if it is compatible with your bike model.
