SUV hybrid

Race 500 27.5

Few e-bikes can bridge the gap between everyday bike and urban street racer as effectively as the SUV Race. With its lightweight aluminium frame, stylish rigid carbon fork and luxury components, it combines performance, urban versatility and sheer riding pleasure like no other e-bike.

Frame

The modern, sophisticated double butted aluminium Superlite frame makes the ideal base for this urban e-bike. With a perfect balance between rigidity and weight, optimimum positioning of both motor and battery in the frame (ODP) and our own Agile Ride Geometry (ARG), the SUV SL provides an exceptionally lively but safe ride experience. The 3D forged adjustable dropouts with integrated IS mount contribute to the ultra-clean looks, while luggage rack mounting points provide a dose of day-to-day practicality.

Components

Superb acceleration and pure, dynamic performance. The high output Bosch Performance Line drive with 500Wh battery (currently the best-performing on the market), combined with the continuous and fully automatic NuVinci H|Sync hub gear is the perfect match. As if that weren't enough, the Gates Carbondrive belt drive makes regular maintenance and chain lubriaction a thing of the past for the SUV Hybrid Race. The exceptionally light rigid full carbon fork matches the frame's clean looks and steers with impeccable precision. SDG's Rockcity rivet design saddle is in good company here. SUV bikes also feature superb puncture resistance and ride comfort, thanks to the 2.4in width Schwalbe Super Moto Kevlar tyres.

        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

      • 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.

        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.

        Welded joints in our high-quality aluminum frames are specially finished via this method and create the impresssion of seamless tube design. This generates the visual effect of moulding and ensures high load bearing capacity.

      • Tapered Steerer

        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.

        The SPLIT function allows the frame to open at the rear dropout to enable a drive belt to be mounted. The SLIDE function at the horizontal adjustable dropout allows wheel adjustment and chain/belt tension to be made easily without having to readjust the disc brakes. Adjustment screws avoid readjusting the wheel and ensure perfect function and durability.
