Exc 500

Frame variants

If you've been searching for the ultimate in comfortable, safe and easy-to-live-with urban e-bikes, we've got the perfect solution: the Town Hybrid EXC. Completely new for 2018, we've taken all the elements that make our Town Hybrids great - easy handling, supreme versatility, excellent safety and low maintenance - and combined it with the reduced weight, quieter performance and easier shifting of Shimano's Nexus Premium 8 speed hub gear with electronic Di2 shifting. The Shimano and Bosch systems work in perfect harmony, creating seamless gear shifts every single time and reducing wear and maintenance. Combine this with hydraulic rim brakes for safe stopping in all weathers, a suspension fork and seatpost for greater comfort on even potholed city streets and the stiff, elegant integrated luggage carrier, and it's easy to see why this is the e-bike that'll slot seamlessly into your life.

Details

The whole point of an e-bike is that it should make your life easier. That's why we started with a brand new design for 2018's Town Hybrid EXC. To improve handling and practicality, we moved the battery to the rear of the triple chamber, exceptionally stiff seat tube. To ensure that the Bosch motor works at optimum efficiency, we mounted it in an extremely strong, gravity cast housing. In order to improve the integrated rack's stability and strength, we refined its design even further. By routing cables internally, we've reduced maintenance requirements to practically nothing. Our Comfort Ride Geometry ensures that you're always in control and comfortable, wherever your riding takes you. And of course, each CUBE frame passes our own rigorous in-house tests for strength and safety - so you can just ride.

Technology

  • Icon of CUBE technology Aluminium Superlite

      • 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.

      • 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.

        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 StVZO

        CUBE Bikes with this labelling fulfill all legal requirements and meet all safety demands according to the StVZO German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations. Lighting systems and reflectors mounted are tested and certified accordingly. These bikes take into account every security-related detail to guarantee safe and relaxed mobility in traffic.

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Integrated Modular Carrier

      • Integrated Modular Carrier

        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.
