Cube Compact Sport Hybrid 500 Blue/Lime 2023
At CUBE we know that the simplest solutions are often the best. The Compact Hybrid’s cross-braced down tube is elegant, stiff and strong. It also makes this an easy bike to step in and out of, as well as providing a convenient carrying handle. There’s a long head tube for accurate, safe steering. The smooth and powerful Bosch Performance drive unit lives in a custom housing at the bottom of the frame, with the battery tucked out of the way of both luggage and rider. Quick and easy saddle and handlebar adjustments allow one bike to fit the widest possible range of riders. And the front luggage carrier increases carrying capacity and adds even more versatility. For commuting, for popping to the shops, for camping, for exploring. For you.
Getting from A to B doesn’t need to involve sitting in a tin box – and here’s the proof. The Compact Sport Hybrid’s rugged, easy step-through design fits riders of all sizes and is easy to store and transport. Bosch’s powerful Performance drive unit takes the sweat out of everyday riding, while Shimano’s wide-ranging and reliable 10-speed Tiagra gears make light work of any route. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes ensure you can stop safely in all weathers. And the lighting system, mudguards, luggage carrier and kickstand ensure that the Compact Sport Hybrid will slot easily into your life. For work, for play, for any reason.
High Performance Aluminium
High performance aluminium is all about extracting the best possible performance from this strong, durable material. We select precisely the right grade of alloy for our needs, carefully tweak tube profiles to suit each application, and then meticulously weld each frame. It’s your guarantee of a light, strong, durable and safe bike.
Smooth Welding isn’t easy, but worthwhile things usually aren’t. It has two advantages. First, and most obviously, it looks great: one tube seems to almost flow into the other. Second, and at least as importantly, it helps to minimise load peaks on welded areas for better frame strength and durability.
Comfort Ride Geometry
As you might expect, our Comfort Ride Geometry delivers maximum comfort on two wheels. Because after all, who doesn’t want a comfortable ride? We sweated the details of frame angles and dimensions to create a natural-feeling ride position and the ideal combination of stability and agility, so you not only feel comfortable but safe, too.
A luggage carrier needn’t be a complicated, ugly addition to your bike. Our Semi-Integrated Carrier is so neat, you’ll barely notice it… until it’s time to carry something back from the shops, or ride to work, or nip across town to fetch something. Sturdy and adaptable, it’s just what you need to make day-to-day life a little easier.
ONE SIZE CONCEPT
The flexible ONE SIZE CONCEPT makes a bike so versatile it can be used by anyone, of any height. The saddle and stem easily adjust up or down to suit any rider from around 5ft 2in to 6ft 2in (1.60m to 1.90m), so everyone can have a comfortable, relaxing ride. It’s the ideal bike to share: for the whole family, partners, friends, neighbours or colleagues. Or keep it for yourself as the perfect companion for wherever life takes you.
Front Carrier Ready
Our Compact Hybrid is already a versatile beast, packing an urban traffic-beating punch way beyond its diminutive dimensions. But if you need a little extra carrying capacity, the purpose-designed Front Carrier makes it even more adaptable. Neat, stable and secure, it provides an easy way to carry an extra bag to work, to the shops, or just because.
RI-Link Rear Carrier
Developed specifically for our versatile Compact Hybrid, the RI-Link Rear Carrier is as elegant as the bike it’s designed to fit. It provides a sturdy and adaptable carrying platform for whatever you need to take with you. There’s a strong spring clamp, room for ACID mudguards and compatability with RI-Link components.
