CROSS HYBRID

SL Allroad 500

Frame variants

Brand new for 2017, the Cross Hybrid SL Allroad 500 represents the pinnacle of our versatile Cross range. Our designers wanted a bike that cut no corners in the pursuit of the ultimate blend of comfort, safety and performance. That's why they selected components like the RockShox fork and 11-speed XT transmission - because when you demand the very best, you expect your bike to be able to deliver.

CROSS HYBRID SL Allroad 500

Frame

Frame: There's a very good reason that we poured all of our experience developing mountain bike frames into the Cross Hybrid SL Allroad: it's the best way to ensure that it has the strength, stiffness and stability to make the best of Bosch's astonishing power unit. Features like the complex hydroformed down tube, double butted Aluminium Superlite tubes and tapered head tube build into a chassis that's built to take on almost literally anything. New for 2017, the gravity cast motor mount integrates drive unit and battery seamlessly into the frame structure, providing even better efficiency, clean looks and the ability to charge the battery without removing it. It's practical, too - our 3D forged dropouts made it easy for us to include our kickstand and a pair of SKS mudguards, and fitting a luggage carrier would be an easy upgrade. And, of course, keeping the battery low in the frame also lowers the centre of gravity, which helps give the Cross Hybrid SL Allroad the intuitive, lively but safe handling you'd expect from CUBE.

Components

Features: You'd expect an e-bike of this calibre to feature Bosch's peerless CX system with 500Wh battery - so, naturally, that's what we fitted. But we didn't stop there. We raided RockShox's catalogue for their superb Paragon Gold fork, which delivers plush and easily adjustable bump absorption in any and all circumstances. Then we added Shimano's XT hydraulic disc brakes, to help you keep your speed in check and bring you safely to a stop. Schwalbe's Smart Sam tyres provide all-weather grip, XT hubs give the ultimate in smooth reliablity and, of course, there's a full XT 11-speed transmission. With an 11-46 tooth cassette and Shimano's legendary reliability, you're assured of smooth shifting in any situation. SKS mudguards and our own CUBE kickstand round off the peerless spec list.

Highlight features

RockShox Paragon Gold, tapered, 63 mm, OneLock

RockShox stands for high-quality suspension and damping characteristics. This is also evident in the trekking-specific RockShox Paragon Gold, designed to take the vibrations out of road and gravel riding.

Bosch Performance CX (75 Nm) Cruise drive unit (250 watts)

The Performance Line CX drive unit is the perfect motor for off-road riding. Trail Control performance boost delivers outstanding, reliable support. Optimum acceleration characteristics combined with maximum torque of up to 75 Nm deliver a true flow experience from beginning to end.

Shimano XT RD-M8000-DSGS, ShadowPlus, 11-speed, direct mount

Lighter action shifting meets the stability and precision of the Shimano XT rear derailleur for superior shifting performance even in critical situations.

Shimano XT BR-M8000, hydraulic disc brake (180 mm/160 mm)

Consistently reliable with masses of stopping power, the new Shimano XT disc brake also features a new, lighter yet more durable master cylinder that is seamlessly integrated into the system.

Unlike the conventional position of the Bosch drive unit in the frame, we rotate the motor by between 8° and 31°, depending on the bike's intended use. This allows the chain stays to be connected lower down on the frame and thus drastically minimises chain slap. The length of the chain stays can also be optimised as a result. The sportive and agile look is a positive side effect.

      • Aluminium Superlite

        Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.

      • Frame Safe System

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Tapered Steerer
      • Image of CUBE technology Tapered Steerer
      • Tapered Steerer

        This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.

        On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.

      • Optimal Drive Position

        The “engine” is the critical part of an Ebike because of its weight and its junction to the regular drivetrain. These factors present a real challenge for the frame design. This is why CUBE developed an innovative new frame construction for the new Ebike generation: simultaneously being the cradle for the electric motor, the pivot for the rear link and the seat of the shock eyelet, the very complex area of the bottom bracket is made of two forged halves. The groove in the front section together with the specially formed down tube is home for the power pack which in this way has a very low position in the frame triangle. The positive outcome is an extremely low center of gravity supporting an agile riding characteristic while achieving a super rigid bottom bracket area.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Easy Mount Kickstand

      • Easy Mount Kickstand

        The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.

      • Integrated Cable Routing

        Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.

      • Smooth Welded

        This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
        weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
        to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
