What happens when you take the comfort, safety and practicality of our Town Hybrid range and combine it with the wide gear range and easy shifting of Shimano's 9 speed Alivio components? The Town Hybrid Sport 400, that's what. Urban savvy comes courtesy of the included mudguards, kickstand and luggage carrier. Sporty ride-anywhere ability is provided by the 9 speed transmission and powerful, all-weather hydraulic disc brakes. And the suspension fork and seatpost provide comfort on even the longest rides or roughest roads. Wherever you need to be, your Town Hybrid Sport can get you there quickly, safely and in comfort.

Details

Getting the best out of Bosch's superb drive system takes more than bolting a motor and battery to a frame. Using our long experience of e-bikes and the latest in sophisticated measuring techniques, we've built a brand new frame that's better handling, safer and more comfortable than ever before. Our engineers began by positioning the battery behind the very rigid triple chamber seat tube, to improve steering and keep it out of harm's way. The motor itself sits in an exceptionally strong, gravity cast housing that ensures that every ounce of energy is transferred efficiently to the rear wheel. We routed cables internally to reduce maintenance, and our Smooth Welding process ensures that the frame looks as good as it is practical. Handling is as easy, stable and natural as you'd expect, thanks to our Comfort Ride Geometry (CRG), so you'll have fun riding whether it's a trip across town or a longer ride out into the countryside.

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.

        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.
