Frame: We spent a lot of time thinking about what an e-bike designed specifically for women should be like. The Access WLS Hybrid is the result. The frame is perfectly matched to the requirements of the Bosch drive, extremely rigid and still very light thanks to its double butted Aluminium Superlite tubeset and sophisticated shape. Our Agile Ride Geometry is optimised with a short, strong and low top tube - so that the Access WLS has lively handling with plenty of room for the rider to move around. And features like the luggage rack mounting points and dropout-mounted bike stand mean you can quickly turn this bike into an everyday tourer and utility vehicle.
Agile Ride Geometry
We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
