VOLspeed V4 Tuning Chip for Giant Syncdrive Pro 85nm (2022) Full Review

VOLspeed V4 Tuning Chip for Giant Syncdrive Pro 85nm (2022) Full Review

In this blog post we are going to review the VOLspeed V4 tuning chip for 2022 Giant Trance X or Reign E+ eBikes fitted with Syncdrive Pro 85nm motors. Before we start, please note that removing the speed limit on your eBike can void your warranty, derestricted eBikes are illegal and only to be used on private land.  


The VOLspeed V4 tuning chip is an updated version designed specifically for the 2022 Giant Syncdrive Pro 85nm motor, commonly found on the 2022 Trance X or Reign E+. 


- Plug & Ride with no programming required

- Simple activation via the handlebar controls

- Full use of Speed/Distance on your display 

- Option to set an activation code to prevent unauthorised use

Plug & Ride

The key difference between the new V4 & old V3 is that the new version requires no initial programming. This is great news for riders that want a plug & play solution, removing the chances of any human error during setup. Over the last 18 months we found that many riders found the initial programming on the V3 a little bit confusing which resulted in delays with setting it up. 

Tamper Detection

The majority of errors are caused by riders consistently exceeding a high speed limit (>45km/h). As a result the V4 will only allow you to set a new max speed up to 45km/h. VOLspeed have also improved the anti-tuning technology to reduce the chance of errors further, even on the most recent software update.


VOLspeed are regarded as one of the most reliable tuning chips for the Bosch motor. This new version now brings all of those popular features across to Giant owners. This is now a true plug & ride solution, giving riders full use of their display & ride control app with the added benefit of an increased max speed capped at 45kmh.

I’m so confused. I thought this would be a simple thing. Hoping you could answer for me, what to purchase (if not from you, then from whom) if I’ve just purchased a 2023 Giant – model Talon e+ 3 – that consists of both a Yamaha 55Nm Syncdrive which is labelled ‘core’ and a ridecontrol that is labelled ‘dash’ and sports a 400Wh Energypak battery – to of course unrestrict the thing, so it’s actually able to take me a little faster than my own legs are able to do normally. Thanks in advance for your assistance 😊

How will I set up? Do you need a gadget or download an app to set up the speed?
EBIKE TUNER replied:
Thanks for getting in touch, Robert. You can download Giant RideControl app if your bike doesn’t have a display. You just need to connect your bike to the app. Press play as if you are starting a ride then press -- to activate the chip. You can use the + button on your controls to increase your new max speed up to 45kmh(28mph).

Will this work with a Giant Revolt E+ Pro XR, model year 2021? The motor is an EP800, 85nm and locked at 32 km/h. It is equipped with Di2 shifters.
EBIKE TUNER replied:
Hi Michael. Sorry, we have no available chip for Giant Revolt with Di2 shifters.
