Product updates instead of innovations. CUBE present their latest ebikes and eMTBs for the 2021 season. You won’t find a new frame, but the bikes from Bavaria continue to deliver with great spec at a fair price. We’ve compiled an overview of the most exciting models with all the information for you here. CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC Bosch 10th Anniversary 29 CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC Bosch 10th Anniversary 29 | 150/140 mm | Weight: n/a | € 10,000 googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1408638783102-0'); }); The first bike to catch your eye when entering CUBE’s showroom is the limited edition Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC of which there are only 199 bikes. A matt black frame up to the height of the shock and rainbow colours from there on up. The colour scheme certainly won’t be to everyone’s taste, but the componentry is beyond any doubt. The frame corresponds to the 2020 model: the front triangle is made of carbon fibre and the rear end is made of aluminium. The 150 mm travel RockShox Pike Ultimate fork and the Super Deluxe Ultimate shock are responsible for riding comfort. The wireless SRAM X01 Eagle AXS 12-speed drivetrain in conjunction with the SRAM G2 Ultimate brakes, the 85 Nm Bosch Performance CX motor and 625 Wh battery ensure a carefree experience on the trails. Price? € 10,000 on the dot. Do you want to secure yourself one of these limited bikes? Then you’ll have to act quick and hope that your local dealer has it in stock. The limited edition bikes will be randomly allotted to participating dealers, and they probably won’t occupy the shop window for long. If you want one, you’ll have to act quick. The special edition is limited to 199 bikes. No more cable clutter. The RockShox Reverb AXS Dropper-Post. … … and the SRAM Eagle AXS drivetrain are completely wireless.

In addition to the Bosch Nyon display and the 150 mm travel FOX 36 FLOAT Factory FIT GRIP2 fork, the eMTB also relies on a FOX FLOAT DPX2 Factory EVOL shock, a wireless SRAM X01 Eagle AXS drivetrain and carbon wheels from NEWMEN. The CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SLT NYON is priced at € 8,399. Goodbye cables!

Like the flagship model, the HPC SLT, the HPC Actionteam comes with 150 mm travel FOX suspension, but the FOX 36 FLOAT Factory FIT fork features the FIT4 damper instead of the GRIP2. If you don’t need the high-priced SRAM X01 Eagle AXS drivetrain, you can save € 2,000 with the Actionteam model compared to the HPC SLT, giving you the mechanical Shimano XT groupset with Shimano XT four-piston brakes. CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL | 150/140 mm | 24.8 kg in 18″ (manufacturer’s specs) | € 4.499 Just above the HPC Race for € 3,999, the CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL model for € 4,499 is the second most affordable Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC eMTB available. Like the flagship models, the HPC SL comes equipped with a Bosch Performance CX motor offering 85 Nm torque. With its beautiful paint job, you also get a carbon main frame paired with an aluminium rear end, but you’ll have to make do without the high-performance suspension. The HPC SL comes with a 140 mm travel FOX 34 Rhythm fork and a FOX FLOAT DPS EVOL shock. Like the other Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC four-bar linkage bikes, it rolls on 27.5″ wheels in size XS and on large 29″ wheels in sizes S to L. In addition to the Shimano XT drivetrain, you also get Shimano XT four-piston brakes.

We just finished reviewing the original, diamond-framed Aventon Level, and we think it’s one of the best class 3 (28 mph) commuter bikes in its price range. Aventon now adds a step-through version, making it even more accessible to those who are shorter or have less flexibility to swing a leg over a traditional frame. The bike uses a 500W hub motor and an integrated 672Wh battery in a very attractive bike, with two choices of color: Rose Gold or Earth Grey. It’s a very clean design, with internally routed cables, a sturdy rack on the back, alloy fenders, and a short-travel fork to take the bumps out of the road. Between the big-volume Kenda tires (that grip the road well) and that fork, it’s a pretty comfy ride. We tried one with an optional suspension seat post (not included) and found the ride even better. It also has a Shimano Acera 8-speed rear cassette, Shimano Rapidfire shifter and Bengal Ares 3 Hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors that do a fine job of stopping you quick. The big, backlit LCD shows you speed, battery level, pedal-assist level and more at a glance, and it’s easy to see in any lighting conditions. There’s only a cadence sensor, so you control your max speed by what pedal-assist level you have it set it. It’s about 13 mph in level 1, and up to 28 mph in level 5. There’s also a thumb throttle that will take you to 20 mph if you don’t want to pedal. One caveat with the throttle, you have to start by pedaling. The throttle does nothing until you get at least a half a rotation of the cranks, which is a consideration for those who might want the throttle to get started (e.g. bad knees). RANGE Aventon has a truly realistic range expectation of 40 miles per charge. We found that accurate, if not a little over-cautious. It will depend on hills, acceleration, rider weight, etc. The small frame fits riders from 4’11”-5’7′, the medium will fit riders from 5’8″-6’2″. It’s customizable with optional accessories like front- and rear lights, panniers, baskets and more. Aventon has many accessories on their website, aventon.com. It’s available for pre-order right now, and Aventon expects to have stock in 29 days. https://www.aventon.com/products/aventon-level-step-through-commuter-ebike $1599.00 The post Aventon Announces New Step-Through Version of Level appeared first on Electric Bike Action.

GAZELLE ULTIMATE T10 HMB COMMUTER BIKE In 1992 the Royal Dutch Gazelle brand celebrated their 100th anniversary of making bikes, and it was in the same year that the title “Royal” was awarded to them by Princess Margriet. After 127 years of bicycle production, today they now employ 350 people in their factory in Dieren, Netherlands. They make over 250,000 bikes a year. The Netherlands has a strong bicycle culture, and Gazelle is passionate about making high-quality bikes to ensure long life and many great rides. While Gazelle has made a non-assist version of the Gazelle for years, this is the first year they’re offering an electric-assist version. THE BIKE The low step-through frame has the battery integrated into the downtube, which only improves the bike’s aesthetics. The low-step design also provides great function, as it doesn’t get in the way of stepping through the frame to mount the bike. The overall design has elegant lines, and looks and feels solidly made. Where other Gazelle models come with an air fork, they decided to equip this bike with a spring headset, which makes the bike look cleaner, and still provides 30mm travel to make the ride feel smoother. Gazelle offers a 10-year warranty on the frame and 5 years on the fork. THE PARTS Though the bars are fairly flat, they come with ergonomic grips that are actually quite comfortable. The saddle looks really flat, but even on long rides it was comfortable. The pedals are flat, with plastic outer cages that grip any kind of footwear nicely, so you can wear your nice work shoes on your commute or throw on your sneakers for a casual ride. A full chain guard keeps your pants safe from the chain. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide the stopping power.   There’s a sturdy rear rack with plenty of attachment points for straps or bungees. Full-coverage fenders keep you clean and dry, even when the street is wet. The tires have a tread that retains great grip on even slippery surfaces and have enough volume to tame some of the bumps in the road. A 1×10 gearing setup from Shimano gives you plenty of range for even steep hills. A cafe lock is attached to the rear triangle, making it easy to quickly lock your bike when you have to run in to a store or while you’re sipping coffee at a coffee shop. It’s enough to keep someone from running away with the nearly 60-pound bike. The Energizer Plus tires offer great traction, even on wet or slick roads.   THE MOTOR The Ultimate T10 comes with a third-generation Bosch Performance Line Cruise mid-drive motor that’s set up for a Class 1 (20 mph for U.S., 15.5 mph for Europe) top speed. It offers five modes: off, Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo. Claimed range is 20 miles for Turbo up to 65 miles for Eco.
