True freedom can only be experienced when you're willing to try something completely new - and the Nutrail Hybrid is the perfect tool for the job. With 4.0 inch tyres and powerful Bosch CX drive it quite simply knows no limits, rolling on with nonchalant ease whether you're out in the sticks or in the thick of the urban jungle. This CUBE masterpiece - with an aluminium frame designed specifically around the needs of fat tyres and the Bosch drive system - contains all of their know-how and fastidious attention to detail. It's these high quality features that have produced a Fat e-bike that blends the fun factor with genuine everyday practicality.
They faced two challenges in designing the Nutrail Hybrid. On the one hand, they set out to build a peerless Fatbike that would be equally at home on the trails as it would be fun to ride, whether on an everyday basis or on longer adventures. And on the other, they needed to perfectly integrate the Bosch drive and all of its specific requirements. It wasn't easy, but they got there in the end by sweating the details. Triple butting, hydroforming and clever design make for a frame that's extremely light, with precision handling. The tapered head tube and 177mm rear axle provide even more rigidity. They positioned the drive and battery for optimum performance and this, combined with their Agile Ride Geometry, guarantees faultless handling. Luggage rack mounting points give the Nutrail extra practicality for day-to-day use. And, of course, they've used StealthReady to make it dropper post-friendly.
For limitless adventure and new experiences, the Bosch CX Drive Unit is an absolute must. This e-drive, with its 75Nm of available torque and huge power output, is the best-performing drive for this kind of application. Combined with a 500Wh battery, the range is impressive.
Rock Shox's Bluto suspension fork, specially developed for Fatbikes, transforms the Nutrail into a comfortable, ultimately versatile trail-taming machine that will turn any ride into a new experience.
Schwalbe's 4.0 inch Jumbo Jim tyres provide traction on any surface, regardless of whether you find yourself on a steep trail, loose rocks, snow or sand. And Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission, with its 11-46 tooth cassette, provides an incredible gear range to tackle even the steepest of mountain trails.
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.
