ACCESS WLS HYBRID

Race 500

Color variants

No destination is too distant and no climb too steep for the WLS Hybrid Race - your riding buddy will need to have her wits about her if she's not to be left behind. Bosch's most powerful CX drive combined with an Aluminium Superlite frame - featuring geometry specially tailored to female physiology - makes for a performance e-MTB and a unique riding experience.

ACCESS WLS HYBRID Race 500

Frame

Frame: We matched double butted tubing precisely to the requirements of the Bosch drive, so as to ensure the best combination of safety and fun. Our Agile Ride Geometry (ARG), tweaked for 2017, and the low positioning of the Bosch drive unit and battery (ODP) both play a key role in achieving this. We gave the WLS frame a short and significantly lower top tube in order to improve manouevrabililty and rider confidence. Details like the IS-mount integrated into the area between seat and chainstays contribute to the clean looks. Available in sizes 14 and 16 inch with 27.5in wheels, and in 17 and 19 inch as a 29er.

Components

Features: The Access WLS Race is a performance bike, right down to the details. Whether it's the Bosch CX drive - with its mountain-taming torque of up to 75Nm and 500Wh battery - or the CUBE EX21 and Shimano Deore wheelset, the emphasis is on reliable high performance. Shimano's 11-speed SLX and XT components - including a wide-ranging 11-42 cassette - ensure maximum reliablity as well as a gear range that will help you tackle any hill, up or down. RockShox's Recon Silver suspension fork with 100mm travel and bar-mounted lockout delivers a smooth, comfortable ride on any trail. And the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes provide powerful, utterly dependable stopping power to make even the steepest and bumpiest of trails absolutely safe.

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Onepiece Design

      • 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 Steerer

      • 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.

      • Wet Paint Surface

        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.

        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

      • 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.
