ELITE HYBRID C:62
SLT 500 29
Zero compromise. If our designers had anything to do with it, every CUBE would be designed and equipped this way. With its streamlined looks, integrated battery and a full complement of range-topping components, the Elite Hybrid C:62 SLT is the powerful, lightweight Bosch e-bike to beat. Brand new Shimano XTR component highlights include a carbon crank, silent freehub and four piston hydraulic disc brakes front and rear. Throw in an unparalleled 1x12 gear range of 10-51 teeth and the fact that the transmission and Bosch components integrate seamlessly for smooth shifting, and it's hard to argue with the fact that we think this is the ultimate e-MTB setup. Newmen carbon cockpit components and Evolution rim complement the plush, easily adjustable Fox 34 Float Factory fork, and the whole lot rolls on grippy, big volume Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres for the ultimate in grip. If you're thinking that all this reads more like a wish-list than a spec sheet, you'd be right. But then, that's what you get when you tell the CUBE design team not to spare any expense: e-perfection in carbon form.

We've learnt a great deal about carbon frame construction - and the specific needs of Bosch e-bikes - over the years. All of that knowledge and experience has been poured into the Elite Hybrid C:62 SLT's chassis. The result is a lightweight, rigid frame built from our premium C:62 carbon using our Advanced Twin Mold manufacturing technique. With a low centre of gravity, surprisingly low weight and an efficient design - aided and abetted by the 12mm Boost rear axle, oversize down tube and tapered head tube - it's got handling that'll surprise you. Our Agile Ride Geometry delivers on-trail poise and ability that makes the most of this bike's peerless pedigree so that you can ride further, faster. Bosch's PowerTube battery lives inside the down tube under its own sealed cover, but it can be recharged without removing it from the frame. The sleek battery and drive unit housings gave our design team the opportunity to fit up to two bottle cage mounts. Cables run internally to complement the elegant looks, and we've even allowed for an easy dropper post upgrade. The devil is, as we've always maintained, in the detail. If there's a faster, more inspirational e-MTB, we're not aware of it...
