ELITE HYBRID C:62

SLT 500 29

Zero compromise: if our designers had anything to do with it, every CUBE would be equipped this way. With a brand new streamlined look, integrated battery and a full complement of range-topping components, the Elite Hybrid C:62 SLT is the powerful, lightweight e-hardtail to beat. A Newmen cockpit and Evolution SL A.30 wheelset, Fox 34 Float Factory fork, Magura MT 8 hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano XT Di2 11 speed transmission completes component selection. If you're thinking that reads more like a wish-list than a spec list, you'd be right. But then, that's what you get when you say to a CUBE designer, ''don't spare any expense'': e-perfection in carbon form.

Details

We've learnt a great deal about both carbon frame construction and the specific needs of e-bikes over the years. All of that knowledge and experience has been poured into the Elite Hybrid C:62 SLT's brand new frame. The result is a lightweight, rigid chassis built from our premium C:62 carbon, using our Advanced Twin Mould manufacturing technique. Bosch's Intube battery lives inside the large, super-stiff down tube under its own cover - but you can charge it without removing it from the frame. The new, sleeker battery and drive housings have given us space to incorporate two bottle cage mounts. Cables run internally to complement the elegant looks, with provision for a stealth dropper post upgrade in the future. The 12mm through axle, oversized down tube and tapered head tube combine to creat the stiffest possible structure for transmitting the Bosch drive's power to the rear wheel, and Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) ensures you're always in control in every trail situation. If there's a faster, more inspirational e-hardtail, we're not aware of it…

Technology

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • Stealth Ready

        Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame – if not required – will be sealed with a cover for protection.

      • X12 Through Axle

        In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.

      • Adaptable X12 Hanger

        We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.

  • Icon 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.

        This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mold technology, precise inserts are used to ensure extra strength at high-stress frame points. This combination offers maximum control over fibre orientations during the lay-up and production process. The Advanced Twin Mold high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.

      • Boost148

        Boost 148mm technology provides precise handling, on every trail, in every situation. The hub flange moves 3mm towards the outside on both sides. It increases the stiffness of a 27.5? wheel by 14% and, for a 29er wheel, by 21%. The reason is the spoke’s wider support in comparison to the 142mm hubs used previously.

      • Zero

        ZERO frames are our ultimate high end bikes. We eliminated any excessive weight, even going so far as to reducing the paint. The main frame, linkages and chain stays each consist of one single part. Maximum stiffness and the most modern building process deliver the best energy transfer. CUBE SHPC bikes are on top of a long intense evolutionary process.
