Shape and Purpose
Cube have been at the forefront of the e-mtb movement, it was they after all who turned our heads with the Cube Stereo Hybrid a few years ago.
They say this bike is at the forefront of “performance enduro riding” and it’s certainly pretty out there with a chainstay a touch shorter than many ebikes but most notably the bottom bracket being placed in a great position to aid the cornering character and they’ve kicked the head angle back to a shade over 66 degrees.
Cube have worked the numbers well on this flagship bike with four sizes, and this top end specification bike is loaded with purposeful components. At 160 mm travel front and rear we feel this is where the e-mtb is best placed to have the most fun uphill as well as downhill.
