Our Touring Hybrid EXC takes its acronym from 'exclusive': exclusively reliable, exclusively inspiring to ride. In addition to its multi-award-winning aluminium frame with integrated luggage rack, it boasts a - you guessed it - exclusive selection of superb components. These include the Bosch Performance CX drive unit, a sensitive suspension fork and Shimano 11-speed transmission.

TOURING HYBRID Exc 500

Frame

Frame: Form follows function. The top quality frame - made from double butted 6061 aluminium with a hydroformed downtube, combines maximum stability with uncrompromising steering precision. Our engineers have carefully considered both frame design and battery position. For example, the Easy Entry frame's double chamber seat tube, double chainstays and rack-mounted battery allows an easy step trough. By positioning the battery in the down tube for the Men's Classic and Trapeze frames, double tubes are eliminated while still improving handling and stability. Whichever you choose, you'll be assured of CUBE's legendary handling. The integrated IC luggage rack is as useful as it is elegant. A modular setup means that wear parts can be easily replaced. Optimised for the new Bosch Drive Unit in every conceivable detail, for 2017 we've ensured that each frame design - classic diamond, trapeze or step-through - has the battery positioned in the optimal position for strenght, stiffness and stability. Internally routed cables ensure consistently excellent gear shifting performance and add to the bike's clean looks.

Components

Features: You can't beat the Touring Hybrid EXC for versatility. The Shimano 11-speed gear system - using an XT rear derailleur and 11-42 tooth cassette - is the perfect wide-ratio match for the Bosch Performance CX Line drive unit and 400Wh battery. A 500Wh battery is an optional extra. Up front, the Suntour NEX-EX25 suspension fork smoothes out everything in its path, while the Shimano BR-M315 disc brake with 180mm front rotor brings both e-bike and rider to a halt with predictable precision. To prevent unwanted puncture repair stops, we've fitted the Touring Hybrid EXC with puncture-resistant Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour tyres. LED lights powered by the Bosch system, SKS mudguards and the built-in kickstand complete the Touring Hybrid EXC's comprehensive kit list. You couldn't wish for anything more.

      • 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 Twin Chain Stays

      • Twin Chain Stays

        There are two advantages of twin chain stays With an Ebike the new drive loads demand additional frame stiffness that twin chain stays can deliver. At the same time this construction offers the perfect way mount a protective chain case in a stable and way.

      • Advanced Mechanical Forming

        With our Advanced Mechanical Forming technology we can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.

        The Integrated Multi Carrier is a complete new development by CUBE. The bicycle rack becomes an integral part of the frame, adding to the rigidity of the chassis. Through a specially designed modular construction, the rack is expandable in many ways. Bags, carrying systems and boxes can be mounted easily and safely for secure, convenient load carrying.

      • 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.
