Frame

A CUBE Hyrbid is more than just a bike with an additional means of propulsion. During the development process we sweated the details, enabling us to build a low weight frame that's still rigid and stable. It's perfectly matched to the requirements of the new Bosch system, so that the CX Drive's 75Mn of available torque can be transferred to the rear wheel without energy loss. The combination of CUBE's Agile Ride Geometry (ARG), with its shorter and steeper top tube specifically for women riders, and optimal positioning of battery and drive (ODP) together ensure superb handling and unmatched trail potential.

Components

The new Bosch CX Drive Unit boasts torque of up to 75Nm and peak power output of 600W, undoubtedly making it the best-performing e-MTB drive currently available. Combined with the 500Wh battery unit we've fitted as standard, you'll be able to make use of all this power on the most challenging of steep climbs without worrying about running out of juice. Shimano's 11 speed XT transmission with its 11-42, wide-ranging cassette is in a class of its own for both looks and function. With the light and stiff Answer Atac MA wheelset, Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes and Manitou Marvel air suspension fork with 100mm travel, nothing stands between you and incredible trail adventures.

        With our Advanced Mechanical Forming technology we can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.

        We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.

        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.

        This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.

      • 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.

        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.
