Description

There are plenty of people who'd say that Cube’s e-MTBs get better every year. They'd be right - and the Reaction Hybrid SL is a good example. Cube’s engineers went back to the drawing board to create an even sleeker hybrid hardtail with fully integrated battery, resulting in improved handling, smarter looks and better functionality. With a RockShox Judy Gold Air fork smoothing out the trail, Magura MT Trail Sport hydraulic discs keeping your speed in check and a slick-shifting Shimano XT-based 11 speed transmission getting your power to the rear wheel, this is a bike that'll have you coming back for more, time after time.


Features: You won't believe the sleek appearance of the Reaction Hybrid SL's frame, but its beauty is more than skin deep. The gravity cast down tube features a removable, sealed cover to protect the battery - which you can charge without removing it from the frame, if you wish. The motor sits inside its own gravity cast housing, positioned in the ideal spot for the best efficiency and handling characteristics. The new design has also enabled Cube to include not one, but two bottle cage mounts - so you can stay hydrated, even on longer rides. And it's also brought the bike's centre of gravity lower, for even better handling in combination with their Agile Ride Geometry. A Boost 12mm thru-axle at the rear helps with power transfer and steering accuracy, and internally routed cables keep gear shifts smoother for longer.


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

New the Bosch PowerTube 500. This sleek 500Wh battery allows bike Cube to integrate the tube shape battery into the frame. Until now most batteries fit externally. The battery is impressively easy to use. Thanks to a  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 onboard computer has all the basic information at the click of a thumb: The new Purion onboard 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 kilometres 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.
