Description

Whether you're a commuter, enthusiast or regular cyclist; whether you ride to get around in the city or out in the countryside at weekends; the CUBE Kathmandu Hybrid Pro 500  is reliable, user-friendly, a two-wheeled companion you've been looking for. Fully equipped for any eventuality, you'll love details like the included kickstand and mudguards, neatly integrated luggage rack and powerful battery. Cube has added a suspension fork to smooth out rough road surfaces and lights so that you can be seen and stay safe. Shimano 10 speed gears work with the Bosch motor to make light work of any road, and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer powerful stopping in any weather conditions. We've thought of everything, so you can just enjoy the ride.

The Kathmandu Hybrid Pro 500's integrated luggage carrier is a great example of how our designers' attention to detail pays off: it's neat, stiff, strong and will carry a variety of loads in complete safety. The powerful Bosch CX motor system and 500Wh battery are mounted low for the best possible handling characteristics, helped along by our proprietary Efficient Comfort Geometry (ECG) for stress-free pedalling, mile after mile. Advanced design features borrowed from our engineering test team's vast experience include oversized, hydroformed tubes for safe handling and efficient power delivery. We even routed cables internally for clean looks and long-lasting, reliable gear shifting.


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 centre 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.That's why all Cube's E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.


Battery:  The battery is impressively easy to use. With a capacity of 13,4 Ah, this premium lithium-ion battery has an energy reserve of 500 Wh and is designed to be mounted on the carrier. Bosch has made it easier to predict your useful range with their online range calculator. 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 with the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours. 

Weight 2.5kg


Display: The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times, it consists of a thumb controller and a larger console mounted at the middle of your handlebar. The console provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.
