Who is this bike suitable for?

One of our most popular hard tail mountain bikes, the 2022 Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 returns with a revised spec. Following its reincarnation from the Cube Acid and introduction to the Cube Reaction model line in 2021, this is set to be one of the fastest selling bikes of the new model year again for 2022. A strong Bosch Performance Line G3 motor, 500Wh battery and Shimano groupset, the Reaction Hybrid Performance is the perfect entry to electric mountain biking.

Got this bike delivered about three weeks ago and I am really impressed. It’s quick has a great range and as I live half a mile up a farm track at the top of a steep hill getting home was always hard on a bike but this just flies up the hill. Great service from e-bikeshop too

New Features

With the latest Generation 3 Bosch Performance System and a 500Wh battery, the Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 2022 is ready to take you further than you imagined!

The full Cube Reaction line-up always makes use of Schwalbe's Smart Sam tyres. These tyres have a continual band of central tread for excellent rolling speed on tarmac and hard pack surfaces, so they wont slow you down like a traditional mountain bike tyre.

The outer shoulders of the tyre have wider spacing with a more aggressive tread pattern to optimise off road grip during cornering, making them a solid all round tyre for a huge range of terrain.

Suntour's NVX30 100mm coil front fork helps to soften up rough terrain and maintain firm tyre contact with the ground, keeping the steering precise and predictable. With a quick release front axle, getting this bike in an out of the car or repairing a puncture is a much quicker and easier job!

For 2022, the Reaction Hybrid Performance gets Shimano's MT200 hydraulic disc brakes, giving great lever feel, modulation and stopping power. These are paired with 180mm rotors front and rear for consistent braking performance.

The MT200 brake system is effortlessly simple and aside from changing the brake pads from time to time (very easy to do at home too!) these are an incredibly low maintenance system

New for 2022, Cube have used Rodi Blackrock 23 tubeless ready wheels on the Reaction Hybrid Performance for 2022 with Shimano boost hubs and a 29" rim. These new Rodi rims offer an excellent tire profile to enable a wider tyre choice. 

Cube have designed the Reaction Hybrid Performance as a fantastic value, budget conscious entry for new riders to the electric mountain bike market for 2022. Often only found on much higher specification bikes, it comes with totally internal routing for all cables, including the option to add cables for a stealth dropper post.

The new 500Wh Bosch PowerTube battery is neatly integrated into the frame using Cube's Modular Battery System, which is designed to securely hold the battery in the underside of the downtube for minimal maintenance, ease of removal for charging while offering great impact and weather protection.

The key operated locking assembly is hidden underneath the impact resistant cover to avoid dirt ingress.

The 2022 Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 eBike is equipped with the new Shimano M3100 9-speed group set.

The 9-speed, 11-36t cassette offers a wide range ratio selection for both up and down hill to suit even the most adventurous of riders. 

Although an entry level group set, it lends itself superbly to the Cube Reaction Performance and performs exceptionally well.

The 2022 Cube Reaction Performance will be popular for any rider looking for an entry level XC trail bike, with ultra keen pricing and a very well thought out specification list. The 500Wh battery capacity offers excellent range whilst the Generation 3 Performance motor is a welcome boost for those looking for help back to the top of those long, flowing downhill sections!

Bosch Performance & Purion eBike System

The new 2022 Cube Reaction Performance 500 eBike features the Bosch Performance G3 crank drive motor, 500Wh PowerTube frame integrated battery and Purion control system. The 250w Performance system outputs 65Nm of torque and peaks at over 500w! It certainly packs a punch, offering up to 300% assistance in turbo mode.

Featuring 4 levels of assistance (and remember you can always turn the power off and ride it as a normal bike) ranging from 40 to 300% assistance, the new eMTB mode allows the user to set off in one assistance mode while allowing the clever Bosch eBike system to determine and deliver the level of assistance required based on user input to allow maximum support where its needed, but reign it in to save battery capacity/range where its not.

The Reaction Hybrid Performance features the latest 'PowerTube' Bosch 500Wh battery technology for 2022. Completely integrated into the frame, Cube have neatly designed it so it can be charged both on and off the bike. 

Sitting on the left of the bars, the 2022 Bosch Purion display is neat and compact. Riders can see important data like speed, distance and battery range and much more, on an easy to read and navigate LCD screen.

Customer Reviews

250 miles in and absolutely delighted with my Cube Reaction Performance 500 trapeze..
Fantastic off road machine and can highly recommend... Also thank you to Stuart and Ben were very responsive to all my communications !
Review submitted on previous model: Having purchased the Cube Acid 500 All-Road during the Covid-19 lock-down I was delighted to receive the bike within a few days. The All-Road version enabled me to easily ride on local roads in the New Forrest, including some steep off road tracks. This bike certainly lives up to its general description and the acceleration when using the Turbo function is really notable. Overall the bike is great value for money and despite experiencing a technical issue with the Battery the e-bikeshop after care dealt with this promptly and professionally, which is impressive, especially considering the current Covid-19 situation.

Review submitted on previous model: I bought this bike from e-bikeshop last year. I needed a bike quickly to take on a 3 month Croatia motor home tour, my previous bike having been stolen a week before we were due to leave. e-bikeshop did a great job of getting it to me quickly despite there being a Bank Holiday in the mix - well done them.
