Power, and freedom of range..

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!

Performance and convenience..

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!

Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance 500 Shimano Brakes & gears

Brakes & Gears

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.

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.

Wheels & Tyres

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​.

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.

The bottom line..

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!

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.

down I was delighted to receive the bike within

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.

Got this bike delivered about three weeks ago and

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

I needed a bike quickly to take on

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.

in the year of ownership the bike has been a revelation, it has got me up 1500m road and trail climbs - climbs I would never attempt on my road bike. It's seen me doing 60+ miles in a day easily, with the knowledge that if I run out of steam I can add a bit of assist to get me back. I tend to use this bike with no assist switched on unless I need it (you definitely do need it up steep hills due to the weight of the drivetrain) but it runs so sweetly on the flat & shallow inclines. For some reason this really does annoy other e-mountain bikers who question why buy an e-MB if you're not going to ride with the assist on ? Well it's simple, because I can easily keep up with none assisted bikes on anything but steep inclines at which point I can easily climb routes they would baulk at, and I can keep going all day when they give up. I would even go to say it's an easier peddle than my previous MB (although that was old). The only time you notice the (minimal) electric drivetrain drag is when you come off assist too early at the top of a climb. It copes admirably with medium rough trails, however this is no downhill or rock hopping trail bike. I'm 6" 4" and the largest frame fits like a glove (just had to lift the headset up using a few spacers to get a more upright stance (my preference), the saddle is very comfortable even though standard Cube, the gears are slick changers, and in the nearly 2000 miles (recorded) I've done so far have only needed one slight readjust, and the brakes are amazingly powerful. You will need to stock up on pads though, I've gone through 3 sets so far (but they're cheap enough). The tyres are durable and provide good grip in all but deep mud, I've just swapped out the rear and gone for same tyre again.

In summary - this bike at this price point is an absolute bargain. It's very efficient and comfortable. When used as a range extended go anywhere utility bike, it's amazing. Since I bought this I do at least double the distance I would have on my previous off road bike, and much fitter as a result..
