The Access WLS Pro combines the riding experience of a real mountain bike with the unhampered mobility that only an e-bike can offer. Perfectly tailored to the female anatomy, women can now enjoy a speedy and comfortable bike that blends the reliablity of the Bosch drive with high quality features. Available in sizes 14 and 16 inch with 27.5in wheels, or 17 and 19 inch as a 29er - so every rider can find the perfect fit.
They spent a lot of time thinking about what an e-bike designed specifically for women should be like. The Access WLS Hybrid is the result. The frame is perfectly matched to the requirements of the Bosch drive, extremely rigid and still very light thanks to its double butted Aluminium Superlite tubeset and sophisticated shape. Their Agile Ride Geometry is optimised with a short, strong and low top tube - so that the Access WLS has lively handling with plenty of room for the rider to move around. And features like the luggage rack mounting points and dropout-mounted bike stand mean you can quickly turn this bike into an everyday tourer and utility vehicle.
The Bosch Performance CX drive, with 75Nm of available torque for making light work of even the toughest of uphill sections, is unquestionably the best all-round e-MTB drive currently available. The 400Wh standard battery means that nothing can stand in your way, but if you want even more range you can opt for the 500Wh battery instead.
And the Suntour XCR 32 suspension fork with 100mm of smooth travel smooths the way, leaving you to get on with enjoying the ride.
Reliable 10-speed Shimano Deore gears offer quick and easy shifts, while hydraulic BR-M315 disc brakes will bring you reliably to a halt even in wet weather. Superb comfort - even on longer rides - is provided courtesy of the CUBE Cockpit with Rise Trail handlebar and a women-specific CUBE WLS saddle.
Agile Ride Geometry
They ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. They also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as their 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. They invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least they kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
