Cube combined a perfect shape with maximum performance in this carbon e-MTB. The Elite Hybrid C:62 race combines probably the lightest and most advanced e-MTB 29er frame with a selection of high quality components to make a bike that's quite simply ahead of its time - in both looks and function. Winner of multiple tests and awards - including the Eurobike Gold Award and the sought-afte Red Dot Design Award - it's an innovator with the power to impress.
This dynamic-looking carbon frame sets new standards in lightweight construction, stability and strength when compared to aluminium counterparts, weighing in on average 1kg less. That's a difference you can feel. As well as taking the time to position the motor unit for optimal propulsion (ODP), we were able to fit the battery into the ideal location in the downtube. Our special protection shield means that it's securely attached inside the frame, where it's protected against shocks and damage. Details like the tapered head tube, chainstay-located disc mount, optional internal dropper post and X12 rear axle are borrowed directly from our top end carbon frame. They all contribute to this exceptional bike's poise and precision.
Shimano's brand new 1x11 transmission, with its huge gear ratio spread courtesy of an 11-46 tooth cassette, is the perfect companion for an e-bike like this. The XT rear derailleur and powerful Deore hydraulic brake system are also superb additions to the C:62 Race 29. Rock Shox Recon Silver air fork - with remote lockout - tames even the toughest of trails with ease. And we built an outstanding set of wheels around Deore hubs and CUBE EX21 rims, offering blisteringly good acceleration and amazing durability. And, of course, we had to fit the best possible high performance e-drive. The standard-setting Bosch CX is supported by a 500Wh battery for the best possible range.
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.
