Frame: We faced two challenges in designing the Nutrail Hybrid. On the one hand, we set out to build a peerless Fatbike that would be equally at home on the trails as it would be fun to ride, whether on an everyday basis or on longer adventures. And on the other, we needed to perfectly integrate the Bosch drive and all of its specific requirements. It wasn't easy, but we got there in the end by sweating the details. Triple butting, hydroforming and clever design make for a frame that's extremely light, with precision handling. The tapered head tube and 177mm rear axle provide even more rigidity. We positioned the drive and battery for optimum performance and this, combined with our Agile Ride Geometry, guarantees faultless handling. Luggage rack mounting points give the Nutrail extra practicality for day-to-day use. And, of course, we've used StealthReady to make it dropper post-friendly.
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.
