Bike: Looking for the best in urban e-bikes? You've just found it. The Kathmandu Hybrid SL 500 cuts no corners because that's not the way they do things at CUBE. They began with their comfortable, efficient and stable Kathmandu frame, built specifically to suit the needs of the Bosch CX drive system. Then added a powerful 500Wh battery for the best possible range, then selected Shimano's electronic Di2 XT transmission. It communicates seamlessly with the Bosch system to provide perfect gear shifts every single time, effortlessly.

A suspension seat post and plush RockShox Paragon Gold suspension fork iron out the roughest of roads, while included mudguards, lights and kickstand, combined with our integrated luggage carrier, mean you and your bike will be ready for anything. Just jump on and ride.

Features: Combining the needs of a load haulier, weekend cruiser and urban commuter into a single machine that works seamlessly with a powerful Bosch motor is no easy task. Luckily, our engineering team is up for the challenge. Beginning with a gravity cast motor mount and complex, hydroformed down tube, they mounted the motor and battery as low as possible. Combined with Cube's Efficient Comfort Geometry (ECG) and a frame structure that's stiff and light, this ensures sure-footed and responsive handling. Internal cable routing keeps everything neat and tidy, and the integrated luggage carrier's wear components can easily be changed if the need arises.

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-Intuvia Display

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.

PowerPack500


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.

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.
