Years of experience developing hybrid mountain bike frames have gone into the Cross Hybrid ONE. You may never intend to ride further off-road than a forest track or canal towpath, but isn't it reassuring to know that your Bosch e-bike has real go-anywhere pedigree? CUBE thought so too. That's the reason you'll find features like double butted aluminium superlite tubes and a tapered head tube, for extra strength without extra weight. Schwalbe's Smart Sam tyres have the grip to cope with pretty much any surface, while the Suntour suspension fork smooths out the rough edges and the powerful Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes serve up plenty of all-weather stopping power. The reliable and powerful Bosch drive unit and integrated battery are stars of the show, of course, feeding both your and the motor's power to the rear wheel via Shimano's slick gears. Hop on, take off and explore.
So neatly integrated is Bosch's motor and battery, many people won't even realise you're riding an e-bike. The clean looks are the result of CUBE's engineering team's long experience of working with - and designing arround - the superb Bosch system. The fully integrated battery and motor are protected from the elements, and you don't even need to remove the battery from the frame in order to charge it. They've kept the Cross Hybrid ONE's centre of gravity deliberately low to provide easy, reassuring handling, while a full set of mudguard and rack mounts means you can easily add the accessories you need for daily use. Like all CUBE bikes, this one has passed their rigorous in-house testing to ensure it exceeds all relevant safety standards as well as meeting their own even tougher demands for durability and strength.
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.
With our specially designed Efficient Comfort Geometry, long distances can be covered easily. Trips with the family, tours with friends or a journey of months - explore the world and life in a new way with our travel series geometry.
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.
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 “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.
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.
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.
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.
