CUBE: Cross Hybrid One Diamond
Years of experience developing hybrid mountain bike frames have gone into the Cross Hybrid ONE. You may never intend to ride further off-road than a forest track or canal towpath, but isn’t it reassuring to know that your Bosch e-bike has real go-anywhere pedigree? We thought so too. That’s the reason you’ll find features like double butted aluminium superlite tubes and a tapered head tube, for extra strength without extra weight. Schwalbe’s Smart Sam tyres have the grip to cope with pretty much any surface, while the Suntour suspension fork smooths out the rough edges and the powerful Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes serve up plenty of all-weather stopping power. The reliable and powerful Bosch drive unit and integrated battery are stars of the show, of course, feeding both your and the motor’s power to the rear wheel via Shimano’s slick gears. And, with a trapeze frame option and a wide range of sizes, we’ve got every rider covered. Hop on, take off and explore.
Warranty: 6 years on the frame and 1 year on everything else on the bike.
