TOURING HYBRID

Exc 500

Frame variants

We took things up a notch or two with our Touring Hybrid EXC. As well as a completely redesigned frame for 2018 - borrowing some pretty impressive technology from some of our high-end hybrid bikes - the EXC features the more powerful Bosch 500Wh battery, for extended range and even longer days in the saddle. Whether you're tackling a longer commute or fancy a challenging multi-day route, this is the bike for the job. The brand new Bosch drive system has to be experienced to be believed - lighter and quieter than ever, it also features incredibly powerful software to create a ride that feels so smooth and natural you'll think you're riding a normal bike. Throw in the integrated luggage rack, inspiring but safe handling and a superb collection of components, and you can see that it's a tough act to follow. From the Suntour fork for more comfort on rough roads, to the wide-ranging 11 speed Shimano transmission capable of tackling any climb and powerful, reliable hydraulic disc brakes for safe stopping in all weathers, our designers selected only the best.

Details

Our Touring Hybrid frame was already widely regarded as one of the best of its kind, but that wasn't enough for the CUBE engineering team. Determined to make it livelier, stiffer and more stable, they redesigned all three frames - the easy entry, trapeze and men's - to position the battery as low and as close to the centre of the frame as possible. Complex hydroforming and a gravity cast bracket to hold the motor - just two of the advanced technologies featured in this frame - create an incredibly stiff, precise structure that responds intuitively to its rider. The integrated luggage carrier is the sleekest, strongest and lightest way to carry whatever you fancy with you, while the smooth welds and internally routed cables keep the appearance as sleek and neat as you'd expect.

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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Easy Mount Kickstand

      • 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.

      • Efficient Comfort Geometry

        With our specially designed Efficient Comfort Geometry, long distances can be covered easily. Trips with the family, tours with friends or a journey of months - explore the world and life in a new way with our travel series geometry.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Frame Safe System

      • Frame Safe System

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Wet Paint Surface

      • Wet Paint Surface

        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
      • Image of CUBE technology StVZO
      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Smooth Welded

      • 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
      • Image 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.
