Bosch Performance 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.
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.
C:68 Carbon Fiber Technology: CUBE’s highly innovative new C68 carbon fibre technology allows us to build better bikes than ever. Typically, carbon fibre frames are around 60% carbon fibre, with the rest being the resin that bonds the fibres together. By distributing carbon fibres evenly, we can make thinner layers within the frame and reduce the amount of resin. Those fibres are a mixture of Ultra High Modulus, High Modulus Spread Tow and Intermediate Modulus carbon, each chosen for the needs of the particular area of the frame. Nanoparticles within the resin itself allows it to be distributed more evenly when under pressure in the frame mould. The result is a range of frames with 68% carbon fibre – lower weight, higher stiffness, more fun.
