TOWN HYBRID

SL 500

Frame variants

Your search for the very best in comfortable, safe and easy-to-live with Bosch urban e-bikes ends here, with the Town Hybrid SL. We've taken all the elements that make our Town Hybrids great - easy handling, unmatched versatility, excellent safety and low maintenance - and combined it with the reduced weight, quieter performance and easier shifting of Shimano's Nexus 8 speed hub with electronic Di2 shifting. The Shimano and Bosch systems work in perfect harmony, creating seamless gear shifts every single time and reducing component wear and maintenance requirements. Hydraulic rim brakes provide safe stopping in any weather, the RockShox Paragon Gold fork smooths your passage over potholed city streets and rough country roads alike, and the integrated luggage carrier offers a safe, strong and stable platform on which to carry... well, whatever you want to carry. Available in Easy Entry, trapezed and classic Men's frame configurations, it really is the ultimate urban e-bike, for everybody.

Details

There's a very simple reason why we designed three different versions of the Town Hybrid SL: we wanted every single rider to be able to feel at home. The Easy Entry is as easy to use as its name implies, offering the easiest access in a frame that's still light, stiff and stable. The Trapeze option features traditional styling and straightforward step-through access, while the classic Men's frame is an instantly recognisable classic. Each has been carefully configured to combine the best blend of low weight, easy handling and more than enough strength to sail through our strict in-house testing regime. The Bosch drive unit's location in a custom gravity cast housing harnesses its power safely and effortlessly, while the battery is positioned in the optimum place to ensure the best possible handling. Speaking of which, you can rely on our Comfort Ride Geometry to make you feel at home every time you ride, ensuring that you'll be safe and secure whether you're riding across town out in the countryside.

Technology

  • Icon of CUBE technology Aluminium Superlite

      • 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 Easy Mount Kickstand

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Integrated Cable Routing

      • Integrated Cable Routing

        Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Integrated Modular Carrier
      • Image of CUBE technology Integrated Modular Carrier
      • Integrated Modular Carrier

        The Integrated Multi Carrier is a complete new development by CUBE. The bicycle rack becomes an integral part of the frame, adding to the rigidity of the chassis. Through a specially designed modular construction, the rack is expandable in many ways. Bags, carrying systems and boxes can be mounted easily and safely for secure, convenient load carrying.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Optimal Drive Position

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Wet Paint Surface
      • Image of CUBE technology Wet Paint Surface
      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology StVZO
      • Image of CUBE technology StVZO
      • StVZO

        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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Smooth Welded
      • Image of CUBE technology Smooth Welded
      • Smooth Welded

        This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
        weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
        to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
