The ultimate hybrid tourer demands special attention to detail, so we pulled out all the stops for the Touring Hybrid SL. We began with Bosch's high performance third generation Active Plus motor system and powerful 500Wh battery, and redesigned the entire frame around their specific requirements. The result is an uncompromisingly lively, stable and inspiring bike with unparalleled versatility. From the stiff and strong integrated luggage carrier to the air sprung RockShox suspension fork and all weather performance of the Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, everything is here for a reason. That applies equally to the slick, intuitive shifting offered by Shimano's electronic Di2 gears, which puts the full range of the 11 speed transmission at your fingertips. Whether you're looking for the ultimate commuter or an inspirational weekender, the Touring Hybrid SL will fit the bill. Just add a spirit of adventure... and ride.
Cube's engineers have long experience working with the superb Bosch drive system - and it shows in this bike. Inspired to create something really special for 2018, they reworked the Touring Hybrid SL's frame from the ground up. All three versions - the easy entry, trapeze and classic men's - now feature optimised battery positioning, bringing the weight as low and as close to the centre of the bike as possible for improved stability, better stiffness and livelier handling. What's more, the men's and trapeze versions feature a weather-proof cover over the battery for sleek looks and to keep dirt and water out. Revised Efficient Comfort Geometry has sharpened the Touring Hybrid SL's responses whilst maintaining its reputation for implacable stability, whatever the road conditions. The integrated rack is the latest incarnation of this Cube system, providing the lightest, strongest and stiffest possible support for carrying whatever load you need to transport from A to B. We even used our Smooth Welding technology to clean up the frame's appearance, giving the impression that one tube almost flows into the next. It's just the kind of attention to detail that you'd expect from Cube.
