One of the defining characteristics of our designers is that they never rest on their laurels. With the brand-new, fourth-generation Bosch CX-powered Reaction Hybrid EX, they’ve pulled out all the stops to build a Bosch e-MTB that will help redefine what’s possible from a hybrid hardtail. The frame is a masterpiece of elegantly functional engineering, combining sleek good looks with incredible handling, unmatched practicality and the superb strength and durability that you’d expect as a result of our extensive in-house testing – and it’s available in a trapeze frame option, too. A brand-new Modular Battery System encloses the Bosch power unit inside the gravity cast down tube and allows for even more range, whilst oversized chain stays, a Boost rear axle and a 1.5in head tube ensure that the power delivery is as efficient as it is smooth. A dropper post-ready seat tube, revised geometry and elegant Smooth Welding complete the picture. To make the most of this amazing new frame, we selected components that offer great value and performance. Up front, the Suntour XCM34-Boost fork delivers accurate steering and 120mm of trail-smoothing travel, whilst 2.6in Schwalbe tyres serve up unbelievable grip and comfort. Sram’s peerless SX Eagle 12-speed transmission works seamlessly with the Bosch CX drive unit to help power you further, faster and higher than you’d think possible, and powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes put you in full control, no matter what the trail or weather dishes out. You’ll be amazed what this bike can do for your riding. We were – and we were the ones who designed it.
