CUBE: Ella Ride Hybrid 400 Easy Entry
The stylish and practical Ella Ride is the perfect companion for your active, outdoor lifestyle. Taking its inspiration from our popular Ella hybrids, our engineers have worked hard to blend function, fashion, comfort and safety into a stylish, modern bike that you’ll be proud to be seen on. With our cutting-edge in-house test lab working 24/7 on safety tests, you can rest assured that your Ella Ride is robust enough to stand up to the rough and tumble of everyday life. Just as important, it’s great to look at. With its retro styling and color-coordinated accessories, it combines the comfort of our Efficient Comfort Geometry with the convenience and reliability of components from Shimano and Suntour, so all you need to do is step on and ride. With its plus suspension fork, full mudguards, lights, chainguard and kickstand, the Ella Ride has everything you need… and nothing that you don’t.
Building a light, strong, stylish step-through frame isn’t as easy as it looks. Balancing low weight, comfort, style and safety is what gets our engineering team out of bed in the morning – and this is the result. Efficient Comfort Geometry (ECG) makes every ride a pleasure and every turn a breeze, and of course you can rest assured that the frame has passed all our stringent in-house safety tests. The luggage carrier integrates neatly into the frame’s elegant structure, but it’s also a great way to carry around whatever you need to take with you. Cables routed through the down tube reduce the need for maintenance and keep your gears shifting smoothly, while colour-coordinated accessories complete the look.
Warranty: 6 years on the frame and 1 year on everything else on the bike.
