The CUBE Cross Hybrid ONE is a bike for all reasons. It's an e-bike that'll reliably accompany you on all your cycling adventures, from long rides out into the countryside to everyday use around town. What's more, it'll make those adventures both easier and more fun. Redesigned with a sleeker, better handling and easier-to-live-with frame for 2018, you'll love the combination of a smooth, strong and quiet Bosch drive system with powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a comfortable Suntour suspension fork. You won't believe how much like a 'normal' bike an e-bike can be... until you try the all new Cross Hybrid ONE.
CUBE started with a clean sheet of paper for the 2018 Cross Hybrid ONE. Building on its predecessor's clean looks and easy, neutral handling, CUBE's engineers began by moving the powerful battery into a position that improves the bike's overall stability. On both the men's and trapeze frames, it's now incorporated into the sleek downtube and protected from the elements by a custom-designed cover, while the Bosch drive unit is protected by a CUBE bash plate. Hydroforming tube technology allowed CUBE to create an exceptionally light, stiff and stable frame, and they tweaked their popular Efficient Comfort Geometry to ensure that the ride position is ergonomically optimised for long rides and efficient pedalling, but with lively handling that will inspire you to go further. Smooth welds add to the modern appearance and CUBE have even routed cables internally for clean looks and reduced maintenance.
Aluminium Superlite - Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 6061 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. CUBE Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
Gravity Casting - Gravity Casting takes the development of high-end aluminium frames to the next level. The advanced construction process – involving several post-production steps – molds liquid aluminium into highly complex frame sections. The motor, cover, battery mount and cable routing combine to form a single module that is always tailored exactly to the bike's intended use. Die casting technology now means that components can be virtually fully integrated into a structure that is specially designed to cope with stress on specific load points and look good at the same time.
Smooth Welded - This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
Efficient Comfort Geometry - With CUBE's specially designed Efficient Comfort Geometry, long distances can be covered easily. Trips with the family, tours with friends or a journey of months - explore the world and life in a new way with the CUBE travel series geometry.
Optimal Drive Position - The engine is the critical part of an E-bike because of its weight and its junction to the regular drivetrain. These factors present a real challenge for the frame design. This is why CUBE developed an innovative new frame construction for the new E-bike generation: simultaneously being the cradle for the electric motor, the pivot for the rear link and the seat of the shock eyelet, the very complex area of the bottom bracket is made of two forged halves. The groove in the front section together with the specially formed downtube is home for the power pack which in this way has a very low position in the frame triangle. The positive outcome is an extremely low center of gravity supporting an agile riding characteristic while achieving a super rigid bottom bracket area.
Integrated Cable Routing - Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
Frame Safe System - To protect CUBE's high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Safe System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
Easy Mount Kickstand - The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.
Wet Paint Surface - On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. CUBE use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
