Cube designed the Cross Hybrid Race Allroad to be all about everyday versatility - but they didn't forget that riding should be fun, too. The extras like mudguards, lighting system and kickstand make life easier for you, regardless of time of day, type of journey or what the weather happens to be doing. That's the practical part. With Bosch's powerful drive system - including a 500Wh battery as standard - and smooth-shifting 11 speed Shimano gears, combined with an easy to adjust Suntour air sprung fork, you'll be enjoying every turn of the pedals. The Cross Hybrid Race Allroad is the perfect all-rounder whether you're a commuter, a keen weekend rider, or a combination of both.

The Cross Hybrid Race Allroad's double butted, aluminium superlite tube-set - combined with a tapered head tube - makes for a light, stiff and strong structure. Why does that matter? Because it's easier, and more fun, to ride. The gravity cast motor housing integrates drive unit and battery cleanly into the lines of the frame, improving transmission efficiency and handling by keeping the weight as low as possible. You can even charge the battery without removing it. Cube’s engineers sweated even the smallest details - so, for example, the 3D forged dropouts make it easy to attach a luggage carrier, and can even be used to pull a bike trailer with a Weber coupling. And, if you have a knock or an accident that damages the rear derailleur, its frame hanger can be easily replaced in a matter of moments. Did they think of everything? No... they don't know where your next ride should take you...


The Performance Line CX raises eBiking to a new level experience with a noticeable boost in performance, a maximum torque of up to 75 newton meters and sustained power into the high cadence range for sporty acceleration, even when riding over alpine terrain. Bosch Performance CX drive complies with all road regulations and its compact design has the additional advantage in that it is attached to the bottom bracket, giving the bike an optimal center of gravity. The drive unit is equipped with an electronic control system with three sensors for force, cadence and speed, ensuring optimal coordination. It takes 1000 sensor measurements per second.


The battery is impressively easy to use. Thanks to an integrated locking system, the battery can be removed and re-attached just like any “plug & play” device and can be completely charged in its own charger in a record time of only 3 hours.

Opened up cycling for me again

by from Monmouthshire on

I walked into 50 Cycles in Bristol without a clue about what I was looking for (well, apart from an electric bike!). Luiz could not have been more helpful: his expertise guided me to this machine. I took a test ride, and was hooked. The bike feels like a regular hybrid bicycle, and does not look like an electric bike. The 11 speed cassette provides a broad span of gearing for most, of not all situations. The CX electric motor is excellent and, set in eMTB mode, selects from "Tour" or "Turbo" depending on how much effort you are putting through the pedals. In the particularly hilly part of Monmouthshire where I live, it is ideal. My only concern is the range: my wife's Kalkhoff seems to provide vast amounts of reserve power, whereas the maximum I can achieve in "Eco" mode is about 42 miles: in "eMTB" less than 20. I might need to invest in a double battery set up. But all in all, an excellent machine and a great sales and after sales service from Luiz at 50 Cycles Bristol.

Superb bike

by from Sale on

Having recently bought the AllRoad 500 from Reece at Altrincham and just returned from my first ride of 30 miles it was superb. The bike is comfortable to ride handles as well as my Cube cross hybrid. Can ride it without electric and the range is good too. Riding in Eco mode I covered 30miles and there was still 39 miles range still showing. All round very pleased with the bike and the service from Reece at Altrincham.
