Sometimes, picking the right tool for the job entails knowing when to up the ante. The Touring Hybrid EXC does just that, putting the best quality components at the fingertips of its rider for the ultimate in hassle-free reliability. Based around our sleek, durable and easy-to-ride Touring Hybrid frame - available in Men's, Trapeze and Easy Entry versions to suit any rider - our designers have selected the kit that's proven itself over time. So, for example, there's an 11 speed Shimano XT-based transmission with wide-ranging 11-46 tooth cassette - putting the right gear for any hill just a click or two away. Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes offer smooth, powerful stopping in any weather conditions, while 47mm Schwalbe tyres give you the comfort and control you need to stay safe. And the easily adjustable, air sprung Suntour suspension fork helps smooth out the roughest of road surfaces. Combined with standard equipment including the integrated luggage carrier, mudguards and lighting set, it's all you need for miles of smiles - a Bosch e-bike for all reasons.

Details

One of the hallmarks of the CUBE Touring Hybrid range is its versatility. But it was just as important to us that that versatility should be available to the widest possible range of riders, which is why we set our engineers the task of designing not one, but three frame designs. We knew they'd come up trumps, and they did. Whether you opt for the trapeze, men's or easy entry version of the Touring Hybrid EXC, you can be assured of a frame that's passed our rigorous in-house safety testing. Each one positions the Bosch drive unit and battery optimally, using a combination of clever frame manufacturing technologies like complex hydroforming and gravity casting, so that weight is kept low and stiffness is kept high. The result, when combined with our proprietary Efficent Comfort Geometry, is a Bosch e-bike that handles just as good as it looks. Internal cable routing reduces clutter and maintenance, and helps keep gears shifting cleanly. And the integrated luggage rack is such a neat idea, you'll wonder how you managed without it.

Technology

  • Icon of CUBE technology Aluminium Superlite
      • Image 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.

        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
      • Image 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Integrated Cable Routing
      • Image of CUBE technology Integrated Cable Routing
      • 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 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.

      • Image of CUBE technology Optimal Drive Position
      • 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 Wet Paint Surface
      • Image 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.

  • 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.
