Bike: Cube’s range-topping full-suspension bike just took another huge leap forward. Building on the success of its illustrious forbears, Cube completely reworked the frame for 2018 and fully integrated the Bosch drive unit along with the brand-new Bosch PowerTube battery. The Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race is now lighter, stiffer, more comfortable and better handling than ever thanks to our tried-and-tested Twin Mould manufacturing technology. No climb is too steep, no descent too tricky. The Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race comes equipped with powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes and matching smooth, precise 11-speed transmission. And to make sure you're in full control at all times - with enough comfort for extended days in the saddle - we specced a Fox 34 Rhythm fork at the front and matching shock at the rear.


Frame: As tricky as it is to improve on something that's already so good, our engineers set out to better every aspect of the Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race's frame. The one-piece carbon down tube houses the Bosch battery and drive unit making them all but invisible in an elegant enclosure that's stiff, light and protects the electrical system from the elements, while bash plate protects the motor from trail debris and impact. You can even charge the battery without removing it from the frame. Revised geometry includes a more progressive shock rate, higher bottom bracket and longer head tube for better stability, greater comfort and a nimbleness that will surprise you. Stealth dropper post-ready cable routing is standard, as are a stiffness-enhancing Boost rear end and maintenance-reducing internal cable routing. With a lower centre of gravity, lighter weight and sleek looks, the Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race just raised the bar another notch.


Features: A long list of impressive components is definitively topped by the best e-MTB drive currently available - the Bosch CX. With up to 75Nm of torque and astonishing power output, this is a consummate hill climber. Backing up all this power is a high-performance 500Wh battery, which opens up epic rides without the need to constantly cast a worrying glance at the battery display.

Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission not only guarantees flawlessly reliable gearshifts, but the 11-46 cassettes also offer an extremely large gear ratio range. The matching hydraulic disc brakes are every bit as good in terms of stopping power, particularly when paired with large 180mm rotors front and rear. Fox shock technology - with a Fox 34 Rhythm up front and Float DPS Performance EVOL at the rear - provides smooth, easily adjustable suspension travel.

And wheels pairing XT Boost hubs with Cube EX23 rims and shod with wide 2.35in Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres transfer drive and braking forces to the trail with impeccable reliability.


 

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.
