BIKE: If you've been searching for the ultimate in comfortable, safe and easy-to-live-with urban e-bikes, we've got the perfect solution: the Town Hybrid EXC. Completely new for 2018, Cube have taken all the elements that make our Town Hybrids great - easy handling, supreme versatility, excellent safety and low maintenance - and combined it with the reduced weight, quieter performance and easier shifting of Shimano's Nexus Premium 8 speed hub gear with electronic Di2 shifting. The Shimano and Bosch systems work in perfect harmony, creating seamless gear shifts every single time and reducing wear and maintenance. Combine this with hydraulic rim brakes for safe stopping in all weathers, a suspension fork and seat post for greater comfort on even potholed city streets and the stiff, elegant integrated luggage carrier, and it's easy to see why this is the e-bike that'll slot seamlessly into your life.

FEATURES: The whole point of an e-bike is that it should make your life easier. That's why Cube started with a brand new design for 2018's Town Hybrid EXC. To improve handling and practicality, they moved the battery to the rear of the triple chamber, exceptionally stiff seat tube. To ensure that the Bosch motor works at optimum efficiency, they mounted it in an extremely strong, gravity cast housing. In order to improve the integrated rack's stability and strength, they refined its design even further. By routing cables internally, they’ve reduced maintenance requirements to practically nothing. The Comfort Ride Geometry ensures that you're always in control and comfortable, wherever your riding takes you. And of course, each CUBE frame passes Cube’s own rigorous in-house tests for strength and safety - so you can just ride.

Gears: Shimano’s Di2 (Digital Integrated Intelligence) is a shifting option to Shimano’s proven mechanical shifting.  Instead of mechanical cables, Di2 is an electronic gear-shifting system that enables riders to execute shifts with electronic switches vs. mechanical shift levers. Di2's most obvious benefit is its remarkably smooth and precise shifting action.Tap the upshift button and you're rewarded with that telltale 'ka-chunk' of a perfectly executed change. Go a step in the other direction and the transition is so seamless as to be virtually imperceptible. In fact, it's almost too smooth.

Display: High-tech on the handlebars. 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 kilometres and includes the functions of a conventional bicycle computer. With a highly precise wheel diameter setting even after changing wheels, users can make fine adjustments at the push of a button.


DRIVE: The Active Line Plus Drive Unit 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 makes 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.
