That real mountain bike feeling, with an extra dose of power. Only their high quality Access WLS Hybrid frame can offer that - and in SL trim, it's equipped with an even more impressive array of features and a brand new frame for 2017. From the Shimano XT groupset to the latest Bosch drive technology, this is a bike created without compromise - and crafted for trail riding fun. Available in sizes 14 and 16 inch with 27.5in wheels, or 17 and 19 inch as a 29er.
A CUBE Hyrbid is more than just a bike with an extra means of propulsion. This was a bike that was already highly developed, but for 2017 they started with a blank sheet of paper, brought together all their engineers' experience with e-MTBs, and developed a completely new frame. Like all their WLS bikes, the geometry is based around female anatomy for safe, inspiring handling. But they went one better. Lighter, stiffer and better handling than ever, the new integrated drive unit and battery have allowed them to tweak their proprietary Agile Ride Geometry to deliver an even better ride - and you can even charge the battery without removing it from the bike. What could be easier?
Bosch's CX Drive Unit boasts torque of up to 75Nm - enough "oomph" to make light work of even the steepest of climbs. Combined with the 500Wh battery unit they've fitted as standard, you'll be able to make use of all this power on even long days out without worrying about running out of juice.
Powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes and Fox 34 Rhythm air suspension fork with 100mm travel, there's nothing to come between you and incredible trail adventures.
Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission with its 11-46 tooth, wide-ranging cassette is in a class of its own for both looks and function. With a light and stiff wheelset comprising XT hubs and CUBE EX30 rims with 2.6 inch Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres
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.
The new STEREO , FRITZZ and HANZZ models are built using Advanced Hydroforming. Conventional hydroforming processes cannot achieve these custom shapes and technical advantages. As this manufacturing method reduces the number of welds, the weight is reduced while durability is increased.
