This is the most advanced Enduro Hybrid ever developed. The incredible High Performance Aluminium chassis was developed from the ground up and is chock full of innovation and cutting-edge technology. That's why they can proudly say that the Stereo Hybrid HPA 160 - developed especially for tough enduro use - stands out above every other full suspension e-MTB. Its performance is exemplary, despite the challenges for man and machine that enduro throws up.
With this frame they've shown that it's possible to develop a genuine enduro bike with an e-drive built in - and without compromising on performance. The CUBE Performance Cover - developed especially for aggressive trail riding - sets new benchmarks for integration and function. The integrated impact protection absorbs the initial energy of any unwanted impact on making contact with the ground, and the shock absorber takes on and neutralises the rest. Drive unit and frame are optimally protected against impacts. The integrated chain guide also keeps the chain stays free from gouges even on rougher trails. The Tuned Drive Position allowed them to keep the chainstays as short as possible, creating exemplary handling and suspension performance in combination with our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension system and 27.5-specific Agile Trail Geometry (ATG).
As you'd expect, the SL version of the Hybrid Enduro uses only the best high-tech components worthy of its premium frameset. Fox suspension components ensure almost limitless descending performance: the Float 36 suspension fork up front has easy-to-use 3-way adjustment and boasts superb steering precision and low weight, while the Float X Performance EVOL shock at the rear smoothes out anything that the trail happens to throw under your wheels.
The advanced Bosch CX drive - with up to 75Nm torque and drawing its power from a 500Wh battery - makes even the longest, toughest climb easy. Grippy Schwalbe tyres - in Super Gravity trim - roll on light, robust DT Swiss CSW AM 2.7 Boost wheels, while the Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper post is the finishing touch that helps ready this e-bike for the most technical of singletrack challenges.
Shimano's XT brake system - with 203mm rotor at the front - has the power and reliability you need, while the wide ratio XT transmission with its 11-46 tooth cassette is a perfect match for enduro use.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
Cube optimized their new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. They can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
FOX Customized Setup
Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. They researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every CUBE full-suspension model.
This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
