CUBE: Reaction Hybrid Pro 500 2020
Our designers always start with a clear goal in mind. In the case of the Reaction Hybrid Pro, it was a simple one: build a Bosch e-bike that will help its rider get more out of the trails they ride. To that end, they went back to the drawing board for 2020 and came up with a brand-new frame design that’s sleeker, stiffer and more versatile than ever, incorporating Bosch’s fourth-generation CX motor. Integrated cable routing complements the clean lines and reduces maintenance, whilst compatibility with CUBE accessories and a remote dropper post makes upgrading and accessorising a cinch. The seamlessly integrated Bosch drive unit and battery, controlled via a Purion handlebar-mounted interface, quietly and efficiently gets on with the job of boosting your pedal power for easier climbs, faster routes and expanded horizons.
We’ve years of experience building Bosch-powered mountain bike hybrids – and we put all of that knowledge to good use in the brand-new Reaction Hybrid frame. Designed around the needs of Bosch’s superb fourth-generation drive system, we built a frame that’s sleeker, better handling and easier to live with than ever – and, with our Size Split system and a trapeze frame option on some models, we have got the perfect size and fit for every rider. Housing the Bosch battery securely in its gravity cast down tube, our engineers also routed all cables internally to keep them out of harm’s way and keep gear shifts clean and precise with minimal maintenance. The 1.5in head tube and Agile Ride Geometry delivers impeccably precise steering, there’s an integrated kickstand mount and we even ensured that there’s routing for a stealth dropper post upgrade, so your Reaction Hybrid will stay with you as your riding skills develop. It’s everything that you need, and nothing that you don’t.
Warranty: 6 years on the frame and 1 years on everything else on the bike.
