CUBE's dedicated engineering team is never satisfied. For the brand-new Reaction Hybrid 29 “ powered by Bosch's fourth-generation drive system “ they went back to the drawing board with a clean sheet of paper and a simple mission: to build the best possible hybrid hardtail frame. Starting with the new Modular Battery System, they designed a new gravity cast down tube to completely enclose the Bosch power unit under an easily accessed cover. It doesn't just look great, it also frees up enough space for bottle cage bosses and the option of a larger capacity battery for even more range. Oversized chain stays, an X12 Boost rear axle and 1.5in head tube work together to transfer the smooth, powerful Bosch drive unit's torque to the rear wheel. Our widely acclaimed Agile Ride Geometry is tweaked and refined to work brilliantly with a 120mm fork, giving handling that builds confidence when you need it and delivers inspiration when you want it. Internal cable routing “ including provision for a stealth dropper post upgrade “ complements the frame's svelte looks, and we even designed a trapeze version. Add it all up and it's clear to see: there's a Reaction Hybrid 29 with your name on it.Make no mistake about it “ the Reaction Hybrid SLT represents the state of the art in aluminium e-MTB technology. Completely reworked and redesigned for 2020, we're as proud about this Bosch e-bike member of the CUBE family as we are of all our range-topping SLT models. And you don't have to look far to see why. The smooth, elegant lines of the aluminium tubes disguise a wealth of clever design and engineering details. Key to this bike's success is the new CUBE Modular Battery System, which encloses a new, higher-capacity battery entirely within the gravity cast down tube, where it's protected from dust, dirt and water. The custom motor housing provides a stable, secure platform for the fourth-generation Bosch drive unit, while a Boost rear axle, oversized seat stays and rigid 1.5in head tube all combine to ensure that it can deliver its smooth, quiet power to the rear wheel as efficiently as possible. Stealth dropper post compatibility, revised Agile Ride Geometry and chain stay protection with integrated cable routing are the icing on the proverbial cake. Of course, all our SLT models are only as good as the components we fit to them “ which is why we chose only the best for the Reaction Hybrid SLT. The Fox 34 Rhythm fork, combined with 2.6in Schwalbe tyres, serves up 120mm of rock- and root-swallowing travel to smooth your path forward, whilst a transmission comprising Shimano's new XT and SLX 12-speed components means you've got slick, reliable shifting over the widest possible gear range “ and powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with an oversized 203mm rotor at the front give you the power you'll need to stop safely, come rain or shine. It really is fully equipped to take on any challenge. Which only leaves one question: where will you be riding tomorrow?
