CUBE AGREE HYBRID C:62 SL DISC – ELECTRIC ROAD IS HERE
The popularity of eBikes has grown exponentially over the past few years and German manufacturer Cube has been right there at the forefront of the evolution. A motor-assisted bicycle opens up many avenues – for existing cyclists an eBike provides an opportunity to venture further, extend ride time and conquer previously insurmountable terrain. An eBike can also be an avenue into the sport for newcomers, with constantly evolving smart technology and lower price points bringing motor-assisted pedalling to a wide reach of riders.
Up until now the vast majority of eBikes developed have been mountain bikes, commuters and leisure cycles. Cube are one of the first manufacturers to release an electric bicycle exclusively for the road, and the Agree Hybrid adopts its non-electric namesake’s frame geometry, positioning riders in a true road-ready setup. The carbon frame and fork are designed in an endurance-orientated fashion to ensure comfort on the longest rides, and the enclosed drive unit is neatly positioned into the down tube to retain the road bike aesthetic.
Concealed within the frame, the Fazua drive unit and battery offers 250wh of power assistance, weighs around 1kg and is completely removable, giving the option to ride the Agree as a non-powered road bike. The drivetrain is a mixture of a Shimano Ultegra rear mech, a 105 cassette and FSA carbon cranks, which work seamlessly with the Fazua drive unit and offer a good spread of gears for riding on all gradients.
As with most eRoad bikes the Cube comes with wider tyres in the form of 32mm Schwalbe Durano’s and with clearance for up to 35mm wide rubber. Hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano provide the ultimate stopping power and the Shimano Ultegra shifters and brake levers are comfortable and effective.
The Cube Agree Hybrid C:62 SL Disc is available in-store and online now.
