CUBE Reaction Hybrid Performance 500
The Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 is a superb entry level hardtail at a very affordable price.
Nothing combines ease of use and fun quite as well as an eMTB. Considering a fully integrated 500Wh battery and 9-speed gearing, few can match the Reaction Hybrid Performance for both value and performance. CUBE have managed to blend all their vast experience into a beautifully crafted frame, cleverly designed around the Bosch drive unit. Moreover, carefully chosen components ensure the rider attains their very best in off-road riding. This is a bike that will squeeze the maximum fun out of any trail.
Powerful 65Nm Bosch Performance (Gen3) Motor
Powered by Bosch’s powerful high torque motor, the Performance (Gen3) peaks at a solid 65Nm. In addition, the Reaction Hybrid Performance features a huge 500Wh battery. This integrates fully into the Aluminium Superlite frame. As a result, this ensures thrills and excitement out on the trails, time and time again. On the front is a set of 100mm high response SR Suntour XCM ATB forks. They cope with pretty much everything on the trails that’s thrown at them. Furthermore, ultra grip 2.35″ Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres provide superb handling on any surface at any time. These gritty performers are set on CUBE’s acclaimed EX23 rims which readily accommodate a tubeless setup.
A Shimano 9-Speed derailleur is super-sweet and goes nicely with a set of Rapid Fire click triggers. In addition, the Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 boasts a good range 11-36T cassette for immense hill climbing ability. Shimano BR-MT200 hydraulic disc breaks set on 180/180 rotors effect impressive and efficient braking. A Purion display sits unobtrusively on the left of the handlebars. It’s clear, concise and simple to operate. Consequently, it’s well out of harms way and provides four levels of assist at the touch of a button.
The Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 offers exceptional value; it boasts high end performance at an extremely modest price tag.
