Description

Nothing combines ease of use and fun quite as well as an e-MTB - and few e-MTBs can match the CUBE Reaction Hybrid SL for value and performance. Blending all Cubes engineers' accumulated experience in a beautifully crafted frame designed to get the best out of the Bosch drive unit, this is a bike that will keep you smiling, mile after mile.

Cube e-MTBs were already widely regarded as amongst the best out there, but They've always looking for improvements. So they started from the ground up for 2017, focussing our attention on integrating the Bosch motor and battery even more seamlessly into the frame. The result is cleaner looks, even better handling and easy-to-live-with touches like the ability to charge the battery without removing it from the frame. As you'd expect, CUBE's acclaimed Agile Ride Geometry continues to set the standard for e-bike handling, with a lower centre of gravity and the perfect blend of liveliness and stability. We even routed cables inside the frame, to protect them from damage.


Features
No compromises here. We started with the heart and soul of the Reaction Hybrid SL: Bosch's superb CX drive, with powerful 500Wh battery as standard. With up to 75Nm of torque and an intuitive control interface, your riding possibilties have never been greater. Up front there's a Rock Shox Recon Silver fork with tapered steerer, for precise steering and smooth, predictable bump absorption. CUBE EX23 rims shod with Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres provide rapid acceleration and all the grip you need, while powerful Shimano Deore disc brakes control your speed via 180mm rotors front and rear. Meanwhile, an XT 1x11 transmission with wide-ranging 11-46 tooch cassette means you'll always be able to find the right gear in an instant.


Drive

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.


Battery

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.

Display
High-tech on the handlebars. The new 
Purion 2-in-1 on-board computer has all the basic information at the click of a thumb: The new Purion on-board computer operates with maximum efficiency and precision. The display clearly shows the most important information. The small control panel permits the rider to control any integrated areas on the bike. The Assistance Level and the light function can be controlled and selected. Furthermore, the small screen displays the current battery status, the coverage in kilometers and includes all the functions of a conventional bicycle computer as well as service interval, the display always reminds you when the eBike is due for a service.
