CUBE designed the Reaction Hybrid Pro so that you could get more out of the trails that you ride. More miles, more time, more fun: exactly what you'd expect from a Bosch CX e-bike built by CUBE. With its plush, accurate-steering Suntour suspension fork and light, grippy and comfortable Schwalbe 2.6 inch tyres to keep you on track, this is a bike that will help you tame any trail. The Shimano Deore 10 speed transmission puts a gear for any eventuality at your fingertips, and powerful Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes ensure that you're always in control. Expand your off-road horizons - from the first pedal stroke to the last, the Reaction Hybrid Pro will help you on your way.
Building a great e-MTB involves more than just bolting a battery and motor to a frame. CUBE's engineers understand this, which is why they put so much time and energy into crafting the Reaction Hybrid Pro's chassis. Slotting the motor into the ideal position for efficient power transfer and placing the battery inside the elegant lines of the down tube, they've created an e-bike that rides as good as it looks. The combination of the Agile Ride Geometry and a low centre of gravity gives this hybrid hardtail handling that'll surprise you - balanced and sure-footed when you need it; agile and lively when you want it. They've not forgotten practicality, either. Internally routed cables reduce maintenance and allow for a dropper post upgrade, while the battery can be charged without removing it from the frame. CUBE sweated the details, so you can concentrate on the ride.
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.
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.
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.
Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame – if not required – will be sealed with a cover for protection.
