Bike: Looking for the best in urban Bosch e-bikes? You've just found it. Allow us to introduce the brand new Kathmandu Hybrid SL - a bike to take you to work, to the shops or out into the hills. Fully equipped for any eventuality, we've cut no corners in our quest to build the ultimate road-going e-tourer. Starting with Bosch's powerful CX drive and sleek PowerTube battery, we created a brand new frame that fully encloses both in an elegant structure that's as efficient as it is good-looking. The integrated carrier and included mudguards, chainguard, lights - with integrated 70 lux sidelight, for even better visibility - and kickstand ensure that you've every accessory you need. But we didn't stop there. Shimano's wide-ranging 11 speed XT transmission with Di2 electronic shifting integrates seamlessly with the Bosch control system, for flawless shifting and smooth power delivery time after time. Meanwhile, powerful hydraulic disc brakes - with the extra reassurance of a four piston caliper up front - give you the stopping power to bring you safely to a halt in any weather conditions. The Kathmandu Hybrid SL is ready for anything. All you need to do is jump on and ride.

Features: Combining the needs of a load hauler, weekend cruiser and urban commuter into a single machine that works seamlessly with the powerful Bosch e-bike system is no easy task. Luckily, our engineering team is up for the challenge. Using experience gained from working on our sleek MTB hybrids, they found a way to fully enclose both drive unit and battery within the frame's down tube. This creates the basis for superbly efficient power delivery, keeps the weight low for improved handling and has the added bonus of giving the Kathmandu Hybrid SL incredibly sleek looks. The integrated rack is the latest incarnation of our simple, strong and elegant load-carrying solution, while a tapred head tube helps deliver precise, confidence-inspiring steering. Add internally routed cables for clean looks and reduced maintenance, and you're looking at our best urban e-bike frame to date.

Bosch Performance Line CX


Drive: This 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 the 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.

Bosch-PowerTube500


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. Bosch has made it easier to predict your useful range with their online range calculator. 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 with the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours.

Shimano Di2


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.
