Whatever you're looking for in an urban Bosch e-bike, you'll find it in the brand-new Kathmandu Hybrid EXC. We've taken all the experience gained from designing some of the world's best e-mountain bikes and poured it into this versatile, sure-footed and adaptable tourer. From the steering-enhancing tapered head tube to the strong, rigid Integrated Carrier 2.0, every detail is aimed at making the Kathmandu Hybrid EXC a reliable, versatile two-wheeled companion. Built around Bosch's smaller, lighter, fourth-generation CX drive unit and a brand-new CUBE Modular Battery System, the frame's sleek appearance disguises the huge amount of time that's gone into designing and testing it. Internal cable routing keeps the Shimano 11-speed transmission shifting smoothly with minimal maintenance, whilst the huge gear range and seamless power delivery from the Bosch drive system ensure that you can tackle any road with ease. Read more... The battery can be recharged in situ, and there's a choice of powerful 500Wh or 625Wh units for extended range. The mountain bike-inspired Suntour suspension fork has an easily adjustable air spring and 100mm of smooth, pothole-swallowing travel - and we even added a suspension seat post to keep you comfortably seated even on long days out. Tough, grippy Schwalbe e-bike specific tyres work with powerful Shimano hydraulic discs to keep you in control whatever the weather, and of course full-length mudguards, a kickstand and integrated lighting system mean that 'fully equipped' isn't just a marketing slogan. Where are you going tomorrow? Because one thing's for sure: the Kathmandu Hybrid EXC will get you there in style, in comfort and with a smile on your face.

The Kathmandu Hybrid carries with it a deserved reputation for versatility, durability and comfort. Completely redesigned around Bosch's superb new fourth-generation CX drive unit for 2020, we've built on this solid foundation with a new frame that's better looking, more practical and easier to live with than ever. The heart of the new frame is the gravity cast down tube with new Modular Battery System. Protected behind an easily accessed cover, the Bosch power unit fits tidily within the Kathmandu Hybrid's sleek frame, leaving plenty of space for if you want swap to a bigger battery with extra capacity for extended range. Read more... The new Integrated Carrier 2.0 provides the most stable platform possible for carrying your gear, whilst complementing the frame's clean lines and boasting replaceable wear components - so you're assured of a long service life. The tapered head tube assures accurate steering from the 100mm suspension fork, internal cable routing keeps gear shifts clean and precise with no need for regular maintenance, and we even included a neatly integrated kickstand mount. As every keen traveller knows, the secret to success lies in the details.
