The evolution continues. A completely new design gives even greater rigidity and stability than before without adding weight, thanks to the triple butted and hydroformed HPA frame. The X-12 axle at the rear - complete with adaptable hanger - ensures the most efficient forward propulsion, while our Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) gives the Reaction Hybrid SL its lively character. It's particularly noticeable in the steering department, which is easier than you'd expect from an e-bike and contributes to the fun factor. Internal cable routing protects gear cables from damage and ensures long-lasting smooth shifting. Multifunctional dropouts anchor the brake caliper and provide a home for a CUBE bike stand if required.
Performance and reliability meet in the Shimano XT transmission - with ShadowPlus rear derailleur - and hydraulic disc brakes. There simply is no better solution for e-bikes than the 1x11 drivetrain. Bosch's most powerful drive unit gives you a strong shove up the steepest of climbs or on the longest of rides - the CX motor has up to 75Nm of torque on tap. A standard 500Wh battery means this is an e-bike that can just keep on going. On rough trails Manitou's Minute fork - with 100mm of air-sprung travel - keeps the rider comfortable and control, with the option of a lockout for climbs. Light and rigid Answer Atac MA wheels shod with grippy Schwalbe Rocket Ron and Racing Ralph 2.25in Kevlar tyres, coupled with an exclusive cockpit setup, complete this high performance package.
