The Swiss were onto something when they invented the do-it-all pocket knife. Here's CUBE's Bosch e-bike equivalent: the Reaction Hybrid Pro Allroad. With power from Bosch's refined CX drive unit matched to Shimano's slick-shifting 10 speed Deore transmission with its wide ranging 11-42T cassette, no climb is too long or too steep. A smooth Suntour suspension fork with precise-steering Boost axle smooths out the trail ahead, while powerful all-weather hydraulic disc brakes and grippy, big volume 2.6 inch Schwalbe tyres work together to ensure you're always in control. But they didn't stop there. To create the ultimate all-purpose e-MTB, CUBE added mudguards, an AXA and Busch & Müller lighting set powered by the Bosch battery and a kickstand, too. And, of course, the Size Split system means every rider can find their perfect fit. From urban commuter to weekend adventure seeker, the Reaction Hybrid Pro Allroad has got you covered.
Power is nothing without control. That's why CUBE designed the Hybrid Pro Allroad's frame to work seamlessly with Bosch's CX drive unit and battery, creating a specially shaped bottom bracket and down tube for the best blend of weight, stiffness and strength. Housed almost entirely inside the frame, the battery can even be charged without removing it and blends seamlessly into the frame's lines. Internal cable routing reduces maintenance and enables an easy dropper post upgrade. By keeping the weight low and finessing the renowned Agile Ride Geometry, CUBE's designers ensured that handling is as balanced and inspiring as you'd expect from them. From city streets to forest trails, the Reaction Hybrid Pro Allroad will inspire you to do more.
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.
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.
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.
