Nothing combines ease of use and fun quite as well as an e-MTB - and few e-MTBs can match the CUBE Reaction Hybrid Race for value and performance. If you're a keen cross-country rider, it's quite possibly the Bosch e-bike you've been looking for. Blending all our engineers' accumulated experience in a beautifully crafted frame designed around the requirements of the Bosch drive unit, we've hand picked the components to get the best out of your off-road riding. New for 2019, the black stanchioned RockShox Judy Silver air fork provides 100mm of smooth, easily adjustable travel and super-precise steering, thanks to its 15x110mm axle. An 11 speed Shimano XT transmission with wide-ranging 11-46T cassette puts the right gear for any trail at your fingertips, while the two piston XT hydraulic disc brakes provide superb all-weather stopping power via the tenacious grip of Schwalbe's 2.6 inch Nobby Nic tyres. This is a bike that will help you squeeze maximum fun out of any trail - guaranteed smiles, mile after mile, and with our Size Split system a guaranteed ideal fit for any rider, too.
Pooling all the knowledge they've gained from years of working with Bosch's superb drive system, Cube's engineers came up with a way to integrate both battery and motor into a gravity cast bottom bracket and down tube. The result isn't just surprisingly elegant, it's also exactly the right blend of light, strong and stiff - so you can be assured of the best handling and optimum power transfer. We've refined our Agile Ride Geometry to provide that elusive blend of stability and liveliness that defines the very best bikes, giving the Reaction Hybrid Race a nimble on-trail feel that'll have you coming back for more. We didn't forget practicalities, of course: the battery can be charged without removing it from the frame and internal cable routing - including for an easy dropper post upgrade - keeps grit and moisture away for longer-lasting, more precise gear shifts.
