elite hybrid C:62

Race 500 29

We combined a perfect shape with maximum performance in this carbon e-mountain bike. The Elite Hybrid C:62 race combines probably the lightest and most advanced e-MTB 29er frame with a selection of high quality components to make a bike that's quite simply ahead of its time - in both looks and function. Winner of multiple tests and awards - including the Eurobike Gold Award and the sought-after Dot Design Award - it's an innovator with the power to impress.

Frame

This dynamic-looking carbon frame sets new standards in lightweight construction, stability and strength when compared to aluminium counterparts, weighing in on average 1kg less. As well as taking the time to position the motor unit for optimal propulsion (ODP), we were able to fit the battery into the ideal location in the downtube. Our special protection shield means that it's securely attached inside the frame, where it's protected against shocks and damage. Details like the tapered head tube, chainstay-located disc mount, optional internal dropper post and X12 rear axle are borrowed directly from our top end carbon frame. They all contribute to this exceptional bike's poise and precision.

Components

Shimano's brand new 1x11 transmission, with its 380% gear ratio spread, is the perfect companion for an e-bike like this. The I-Spec cockpit, ShadowPlus rear derailleur and powerful Deore brake system are also superb additions to the C:62 Race 29. The Manitou Minute air fork - with remote lockout - tames even the toughest of trails. Answer's Atac MA29 wheels, with their optimal rigidity/weight ratio, offer blisteringly good acceleration and amazing durability. And, of course, we had to fit the best possible high performance e-drive. Currently the most powerful e-bike motor available, the Bosch CX is supported by a 500Wh battery for the best possible range.

      • Agile Ride Geometry

        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.

        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.

      • Integrated Post Mount

        The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren’t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.

        Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame – if not required – will be sealed with a cover for protection.

        In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.

        We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.

        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.

        This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mould technology, precise inserts are used to ensure extra strength at high-stress frame points. This combination offers maximum control over fibre orientations during the lay-up and production process. The Advanced Twin Mould high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.
