Cube has launched the new bikes for its 2020 range.
This includes a number of brand new bicycles to the range, such as the Cargo Hybrid, Compact Hybrid and Stereo 170.
The e-bikes from Cube have undergone a “complete metamorphosis.” This year, Cube has used the latest Bosch CX engines and a larger battery, the Bosch PowerTube 625. The new Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC Action Team is decked out with a full complement of team issue components and race-tested kit. Wish-list parts include Fox Factory shocks – a Float DPX2 Factory at the rear, combined with a 36 Float Factory fork at the front – and a Fox Transfer Factory dropper post. The Cube Stereo Hybrid 140 and 120 will also be present this year.
The Cube Reaction Hybrid EXC 625 29 is a 29er hybrid mountain bike, powered by Bosch’s fourth-generation drive system and Shimano’s 12-speed XT and SLX components. The Reaction Hybrid EXC 29 is the latest iteration of its “constant quest to build smooth, fast, comfortable and affordable off-roaders.” The Cube Acid Hybrid ONE 500 is also present, and is described by Cube as a “true all-rounder.”
The German bicycle manufacturer is also launching a range of kids bikes. The brand-new Stereo 120 Youth is available in two frame sizes. The hidden frame pivots, internal cable routing and compact rocker design contribute to this bike’s “super-clean looks.”
The Cube Reaction C:62 Youth has tapered head tube, short rear end and stiff chainstays. There are also the Cube Cubies, “made for the smallest among us”, from the Cube 120 Walk to the Cubie 180 SL.
The Cube Elite C: 68X SLT uses a SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS powertrain. This bike is 15% lighter than the old Elite, designed with “even greater comfort” in mind. The Cube Reaction C:62 has a light, stiff and responsive frame – built from its premium C:62 carbon. There is also the new Cube Stereo 170, and the Cube AMS 100 and Cube Stereo 150, 140 and 120 will again be present this year.
Every road bike in the new 2020 range has been updated and is ready for the new season. The road bike with the most innovations is the Cube Litening C: 68X, which has undergone a “complete metamorphosis”, the manufacturer has said. The Cube Agree C:62 SLT and the Cube Attain GTC SL are bikes are “made to race the streets.” The gravel racer Cube Nuroad Race FE and the cyclocrosser Cube Cross Race are also present.
The Cube Agree Hybrid C: 62 SL “represents a revolution in cycling”, with a motor and battery hidden in the lower tube. The gravel racer Cube Nuroad is also available in the e-variant.
Touring and town bikes
The Cube Cargo Hybrid is a “stylish, adaptable and rugged load-lugging” Bosch e-bike. The cargo box is made from EPP foam and there’s an optional ergonomic seat, padded seatbelts and canopy. Cube has included full-length mudguards, front and rear LED lights and riders can also add a rear rack.
The brand new Cube Compact Hybrid is a purpose-built, small-wheeled Bosch e-bike that’s designed to “slot easily into anyone’s life.” It is built around a one-size-fits-all frame and compact 20-inch wheels.
It has a step-through frame design and Bosch’s Active Plus drive unit and 500Wh battery gives a “smooth, quiet and completely hassle-free boost to your pedalling.” Riders can also fit a rack front or rear and the bike also has wide 2.4in tyres.
The Cube Kathmandu Hybrid 45 625 was conceived around Cube’s Kathmandu Hybrid frame, fourth-generation Bosch power with a powerful 625Wh battery and Intuvia controller. It has a Shimano 12-speed SLX and XT transmission, Magura hydraulic disc brakes with oversized rotors and full-length mudguards.
The Cube Axial WS C: 62 SL is the ‘bike that’s going to win the race.’ Cube’s Advanced Twin Mold monocoque technology gives control over fibre lay-up during construction, so it can fine-tune every area of the frame to optimise weight and stiffness. The premium C:62 carbon has the strength to enable Cube to build a “lightweight yet exceptionally strong chassis.” It has Shimano’s peerless 2×11 Ultegra transmission, while matching hydraulic disc brakes offer “perfect modulation and control in any weather conditions.” It also has the Newmen wheelset and fast-rolling Continental tyres.
For the mountain biker, there’s Cube’s Access WS C:62 Pro. The short rear end with stiffness-enhancing Boost axle works with the tapered head tube to provide efficient pedalling and accurate steering, combined with its Agile Ride Geometry. The Nuroad WS has Shimano’s Tiagra 2×10 speed transmission and Tektro Spyre disc brakes.
