Chainstay Speed Sensor
When Shimano announced the EP8 system Shimano also introduced the EW-SS300 STEPS Chainstay Speed Sensor.
It is installed on the chainstay and utilises a spoke magnet (included) to determine the bike's speed. The distance between magnet and sensor should be 3 - 17mm. The unit comes with a special spacer in case the distance between magnet and sensor exceeds 17mm.
The EW-SS300 sensor comes with a fixed length cable attached to it. There are four lengths available, so make sure you buy the one that fits your bike frame best:
- 340 mm
- 540 mm
- 760 mm
- 1400 mm
Just like the Disc speed sensor EW-SS301, this speed sensor will only work in a dedicated speed sensor port. The connector has a fin and will not fit any regular E-Tube ports
