Evolution has brought us to this point: the Reaction Hybrid SL redefines 29er hybrid mountain bikes. Blending the range of Bosch's biggest capacity battery with the power of its fourth-generation CX drive unit and Nyon controller, this is a bike for explorers and adventurers. Sram's wide-ranging NX Eagle 1x12 transmission gives you the range you need to tackle any route, while Magura four-piston hydaulic disc calipers front and rear serve up huge reserves of stopping power. The e-bike approved, RockShox Recon air fork has 120mm of bump-swallowing travel. Where will it take you next weekend?
Frame and equipment
A high-performance e-mtb demands a high-performance frame. With the Reaction Hybrid SL we started with our Modular Battery System, fully enclosing the high-capacity Bosch unit in the down tube. We added a Boost rear end, for efficient power transfer. A 1.5in head tube, for accurate steering. Agile Ride Geometry, for safe, lively and intuitive handling. Internal cable routing for low maintenance and high performance - including provision for a stealth dropper post upgrade. Tested the frame for a 150kg total weight. And finished off, of course, with Bosch's sublime fourth-generation drive unit, for smooth pedal assistance, mile after mile and trail after trail. There's even a trapeze frame option...
For whom is the Cube Reaction Hybrid SL 625 29 suitable?
For the Alpine Tourer. There are hardly any other bikes that can be used as variably as Hardtails. With new drives and increasingly sophisticated technology, these bikes are taking the market by storm. Own performance classes in competitive sports are being planned. This category proves that with a pedelec, fun and sportiness do not go astray. Even in technically demanding trails, these hardtails make an agile impression. If you can't get enough of mountain biking, you've come to the right place!
The advantages of 29 inch tires
29 inch is THE trend of the last few years, which was able to assert itself completely. Initially viewed critically by mountain bike purists and equipped with some teething troubles, the bike industry has recognized the trend and made it the new standard through continuous improvements. The advantage of the 29" tyres is the enormous running smoothness, which brings great advantages and saves power on long tours as well as uphill and downhill. Obstacles are easier to overcome due to the larger circumference of the wheels, and a greater distance is covered by turning the bottom bracket. By improvements and adjustments in the frame construction and the component selection, initial problems with the agility in the Trail and the optics of smaller frames were optimally balanced. Whether fully or hardtail, a 29 will take you far away.
