Looking for the best in urban e-bikes? You've just found it. The Kathmandu Hybrid SL 500 cuts no corners, because that's not the way we do things at Cube. We began with our comfortable, efficient and stable Kathmandu frame, built specifically to suit the needs of the Bosch CX drive system. We added a powerful 500Wh battery for the best possible range, then selected Shimano's electronic Di2 XT transmission. It communicates seamlessly with the Bosch system to provide perfect gear shifts every single time, effortlessly. A suspension seatpost and plush RockShox Paragon Gold suspension fork iron out the roughest of roads, while included mudguards, lights and kickstand, combined with our integrated luggage carrier, mean you and your bike will be ready for anything. Just jump on and ride.
Combining the needs of a load hauler, weekend cruiser and urban commuter into a single machine that works seamlessly with a powerful Bosch motor is no easy task. Luckily, our engineering team is up for the challenge. Beginning with a gravity cast motor mount and complex, hydroformed down tube, we mounted the motor and battery as low as possible. Combined with our Efficient Comfort Geometry (ECG) and a frame structure that's stiff and light, this ensures sure-footed and responsive handling. Internal cable routing keeps everything neat and tidy, and the integrated luggage carrier's wear components can easily be changed if the need arises.
