Improving on something that's already very good is a challenge in itself. Creating something new and extraordinary is even harder. But that's why we chose not to just revise every detail, but to start again from the ground up. Taken together, the many innovations we've fitted build into the most ground-breaking and high quality All-Mountain Hybrid currently available: cutting-edge, high performance and just cyring out for epic singletrack adventures.
Frame The CUBE way of doing things is simple: maximum performance, zero compromise. We've built on well-known features - like our much-lauded Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) and Efficent Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics - to give our new four pivot 7005 High Performance Aluminium frame a real innovative edge. The new Tuned Drive Position (TDP) integrates the drive unit into the frame better than ever before, enabling us to reduce chainstay length by 20mm and improve agility and overall handling as a result. Boost hubs with 148mm axles keep everything tracking true and straight and a new battery mount means we can now position it inside the frame. The incredibly clean looks are given a boost by running cables internally, protecting them from damage and adding to the bike's stunning appearance.
Components Even the steepest, narrowest singletrack won't catch the Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 Race 27.5 out. The Bosch CX drive - currently the best-performing eMTB drive on the market - delivers up to 75Nm torque for effortless climbing. Throw in the 500Wh battery and the entire system's extraordinary efficiency, and it's easy to see why even epic hilly routes are now a possibility. The enormous gear ratio range of the 11 speed Shimano XT transmission with its 11-42 cassette means you'll always be able to find the right gear - and there's no need for a double chainset. And the new XT brake system won't let you down, even on the longest and steepest of mountain descents. Fox's new generation Float DPS Performance shock and 34 Float Performance fork work together to provide peerless bump-eating smoothness. And robust Answer Atac EM wheels with wide, grippy Schwalbe Hans Dampf tyres - in puncture-proof Super Gravity form at the rear - provide all rigidity, traction and control you need to tame the toughest of trails.
