suv hybrid 45

SL 500 29

When we were designing the new SUV 45 Hybrid SL - our first speed e-bike - for 2016, we paid particular attention to the requirements of an e-bike designed to exceed 16mph (25kmh). With its active drive support offering speeds up to 28mph (45kmh), you'll easily out-pace the traffic on city streets and cover large distances in no time - a genuine transport alternative for the environmentally conscious. A robust aluminium Superlite frame and carefully selected components mean you'll still be relaxed in the saddle, even at 28mph. That's why the SUV Hybrid 45 SL is a great choice for getting around quickly in urban spaces: no more worrying about rush-hour jams or finding a parking space.

The triple butted, hydroformed High-Performance Aluminium (HPA) frame is a prime example of what modern aluminium frame construction can offer, and is tailored in every detail to the requirements of an urban e-bike. Sophisticated construction means that it boasts optimal frame rigidity in spite of its low weight. The X12 rear axle simply adds to this drivetrain efficiency. Perfect positioning of the motor and battery relative to the frame, combined with our own Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) adds up to lots of riding fun in the urban jungle, even at high speeds.


Riding in the city can be unforgiving. That's why we've added all kinds of robust MTB technology, to make the SUV 45 rider's life a little easier. The comfortable Fox 34 Float suspension fork and voluminous Schwalbe Big Ben tyres make light work of potholes and kerbs. Bosch's Performance Speed Line drive offers intelligent power assistance, with a breakway point over 28mph (45kmh) and a new 500Wh battery to maximise the range. Brand new XT gear components from Shimano, combined with a wide-ranging 11-42 cassette, guarantee reliable gear shifting and a gear for every eventuality. The hydraulic four-piston Magura MT5 disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear are the perfect choice for scrubbing off speed when you need to. And the bike rolls on high quality, robust Answer Atac AM 29 wheels.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • Onepiece Design

        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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology TAPERED HEAD TUBEIcon of CUBE technology TAPERED HEAD TUBE
      • 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.

        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.

      • Easy Mount Kickstand

        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.

      • Advanced Hydroforming

        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

      • Adaptable X12 Hanger

        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.

      • Frame Safe System

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

        CUBE Bikes with this labelling fulfill all legal requirements and meet all safety demands according to the StVZO German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations. Lighting systems and reflectors mounted are tested and certified accordingly. These bikes take into account every security-related detail to guarantee safe and relaxed mobility in traffic.

      • X12 THROUGH AXLE
      • X12 Through Axle

        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.
