What does a reliable, low-maintenance and affordable pedal-assist e-bike look like? We reckon it looks like the Town Hybrid ONE. Completely redesigned for 2018, we've re-thought every aspect of our popular, environmentally-friendly urban runabout to make it easier to live with and better to ride. From the enclosed chain and practically maintenance-free 7 speed hub gear to the suspension seatpost and fork, our sole aim was to produce the best value, most reliable urban e-bike possible. With power from Bosch's superb Active motor system and improved handling for a comfortable and safe ride, it's quite possibly the only bike you'll ever need.

Details

Available in both trapeze and easy entry versions, the Town Hybrid ONE's frame sets new standards for comfort and safety. Starting with a blank sheet of paper, our engineering team located the battery behind the exceptionally rigid triple chamber seat tube for a more stable feel and better handling. A gravity cast bottom bracket provides a supremely strong, stiff structure in which to house the Bosch motor, and we moved the rear brake to the chainstays to free up room on the seatstays for an easy-to-use lock. Cables are routed internally for minimal maintenance and cleaner looks, and we even used our Smooth Welding process to give the frame a seamless, organic look.

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.

        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.
