travel hybrid

RT 400

We integrated Bosch's best drive unit and battery technology with a high quality step-through frame. The result? A great combo for healthy, environmentally friendly mobility. The RT model combines the easy-to-use ethos of all our CUBE Travel Hybrid bikes with the extra safety of an additional back pedal brake - for those who want an alternative to the usual braking options.

Frame

The Bosch system is in a class of its own for stability and ride dynamics. We analysed its performance using state-of-the-art measuring equipment and, based on the results, constructed an entirely new, highly stable and exceptionally light step-through frame specially for the Bosch Active Drive Unit. The stability comes from a combination of the oversized, hydroformed down tube, strengthened bottom bracket and head tube areas, double chainstay and double chamber seat tube.

Components

The heart of this bike is the Bosch Active Line drive system with 400Wh battery. If you'd like even more range, the 500Wh is an optional extra that'll allow longer rides. Shimano's 7 speed Nexus hub gear and Magura's HS11 hydraulic rim brake were specially selected for their reliability, and Schwalbe developed their Spicer tyres with puncture-resistant K-Guard technology specifically for e-bikes. Comfort is provided by a suspension seatpost and Suntour NEX suspension fork. Clever details include one key for both frame and battery locks, the central display-activated Busch & Müller LED lights, and a chain guard to keep your clothes clean.

        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.

      • 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.

        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.
