A real mountain bike with extra power on tap makes for a unique riding experience. The CUBE Reaction Hybrid HPA Pro successfully combines the attributes of a performance hardtail with day-to-day practicality, thanks to the latest Bosch drive technology, a hand-picked selection of high quality components and thoughtful frame design.
Cube's aluminium Superlite frame has been updated for 2017, developed specifically to meet the requirements of Bosch's latest drive system and to give the maximum possible versatility. The combination of Optimal Drive Position, Agile Ride Geometry and a carefully sited battery gives the Reaction Hybrid HPA Pro a surprisingly agile ride feel and the most efficient possible drivetrain. Internal cable routing means the looks are as clean as the gear and brake cables. They've even included room to mount mudguards, making this bike perfect for everything from weekend rides to the daily commute. It's also easy to mount a trailer to the dropout - so you could be dropping your kids off at the nursery on the way to the office.
Centrepiece of this bike is the new Bosch CX drive. With up to 75Nm it'll really get you going, even for extended periods of pedalling at higher speeds - useful for tough climbs. The large capacity 500Wh battery has plenty of reserves of power and the Shimano's 10-speed Deore transmission delivers precise and easy gear shifting with a wide gear range, while the hydraulic BR-M315 disc brakes with 180mm rotors will bring you to a halt reliably, even in wet weather. A comfy ride position is guaranteed by the CUBE cockpit components, while Suntour's coil spring XRC32 fork with remote lockout smoothes things out on even the bumpiest of roads or trails.
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.
