CUBE ACCESS HYBRID SLT 625 2020
You've earned your stripes. You've sweated the climbs, owned the descents and racked up the miles. It's time to treat yourself to the best. The new Access Hybrid SLT encompasses everything we've learnt about building light, great handling 29er hardtails for women... and adds the power of Bosch's superb fourth-generation CX drive system, the range of an extra-large-capacity battery and the reliability of a stunning selection of premium components. Starting with a blank sheet of paper, our engineers began by creating the innovative Modular Battery System, which houses the Bosch power unit securely inside the frame's down tube under an easily accessed cover. They added a custom housing for the Bosch drive unit, then focussed on making the frame as efficient and agile as possible. Oversized chain stays, a Boost 148 rear axle and 1.5in head tube help transfer every watt of your pedalling - and the Bosch motor's assistance - to the rear wheel via Shimano's superb SLX and XT 12-speed transmission. Gear shifts are instantaneous and smooth - and they'll stay that way, thanks to internal cable routing that also allows for a quick and easy upgrade to a stealth dropper post, so you can seek out those borderline unrideable lines, if you like. Big-volume, smooth-rolling Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres work with the smooth, easily configurable Fox 34 Rhythm fork to help keep the rubber side down - and we included Shimano's strong, powerful hydraulic disc brakes to ensure you're always in control, even on the fastest or steepest descents. So go ahead - you've earned this. There's no better Bosch e-bike hardtail for women, and no better way of expanding your trail-riding horizons.
