No destination is too distant and no climb too steep for the WLS Hybrid Race - your riding buddy will need to have her wits about her if she's not to be left behind. Bosch's most powerful CX drive combined with an Aluminium Superlite frame - featuring geometry specially tailored to female physiology - makes for a performance e-MTB and a unique riding experience.
They matched double butted tubing precisely to the requirements of the Bosch drive, so as to ensure the best combination of safety and fun. Our Agile Ride Geometry (ARG), tweaked for 2017, and the low positioning of the Bosch drive unit and battery (ODP) both play a key role in achieving this. They gave the WLS frame a short and significantly lower top tube in order to improve manouevrabililty and rider confidence. Details like the IS-mount integrated into the area between seat and chainstays contribute to the clean looks. Available in sizes 14 and 16 inch with 27.5in wheels, and in 17 and 19 inch as a 29er.
The Access WLS Race is a performance bike, right down to the details. Whether it's the Bosch CX drive - with its mountain-taming torque of up to 75Nm and 500Wh battery - or the CUBE EX21 and Shimano Deore wheelset, the emphasis is on reliable high performance.
And the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes provide powerful, utterly dependable stopping power to make even the steepest and bumpiest of trails absolutely safe.
Shimano's 11-speed SLX and XT components - including a wide-ranging 11-42 cassette - ensure maximum reliablity as well as a gear range that will help you tackle any hill, up or down. RockShox's Recon Silver suspension fork with 100mm travel and bar-mounted lockout delivers a smooth, comfortable ride on any trail.
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.
