20" Compact Hybrid

Color variants

At CUBE we've known for a long time that bikes are part of the solution to the urban mobility problem. But the brand-new Compact Hybrid is something different - a purpose-built, small-wheeled Bosch e-bike that's designed to slot easily into anyone's life, reducing the need to travel by car and, well... just making things simpler. Because simpler is good, right? Yeah, we thought so too. Built around a one-size-fits-all frame and compact 20in wheels, it doesn't take up much room but adapts easily to any rider thanks to easily adjustable handlebar and saddle positions - and there's the possibility to mount a lock to help prevent someone else riding off on your pride and joy. The step-through frame design makes it easy to get on and off, and Bosch's Active Plus drive unit and 500Wh battery gives a smooth, quiet and completely hassle-free boost to your pedalling. A comfortable seat and handlebar mean you'll love riding it, while low-maintenance internal hub gears ensure that hills and traffic are a breeze, and we included full-length mudguards to help keep you drier and more comfortable, even when the weather isn't cooperating. Speaking of which, powerful all-weather disc brakes mean you've no worries about stopping, even when it's wet. You can fit a rack front or rear - or even both - for carrying all your stuff, and wide 2.4in tyres offer lots of reassuring grip and comfort, even on poorly maintained city streets. Quiet, compact - as its name suggests - and so easy to live with you'll wonder how you managed without it, the Compact Hybrid is the reliable companion that everyone needs.

Details

Building the Compact Hybrid - one-size-fits-all urban hybrid for the 21st century - demanded a completely new approach. To design a compact, durable, easy-to-ride and versatile bike that would slot easily into a busy lifestyle, our engineers began by building a compact frame around 20in wheels. The simple, cross-braced down tube is elegant, stiff and strong. It also makes the Compact Hybrid easy to step in and out of, as well as providing a convenient carry handle. The long head tube ensures accurate steering, whilst the smooth and powerful Bosch drive unit lives neatly in a custom housing at the bottom of the frame, and we located the battery behind the seat tube, close to the bike's centre of gravity and out of the way of both luggage and the rider. Quick saddle and handlebar adjustments allow one bike to fit a wide range of riders, too. It might not usher in a revolution in urban transport, but we like to think it's part of the solution.

        The new STEREO , FRITZZ and HANZZ models are built using Advanced Hydroforming. Conventional hydroforming processes cannot achieve these custom shapes and technical advantages. As this manufacturing method reduces the number of welds, the weight is reduced while durability is increased. All

      • 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 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.

        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.
