The evergreen Cube Acid Hybrid ONE 500 continues to set the standard for a versatile, affordable and rugged Bosch electric-bike. Combining the rugged appeal of our mountain bikes with the comfort and adaptability of a touring / commuter machine, it’s the go-anywhere two-wheeled companion that’ll slot right into your life – and there’s even a trapeze frame version, so everyone can find the perfect fit. The advanced hydroforming that enables our engineering team to build such an elegant, tough and rigid frame is also your guarantee of long-lasting safety and performance, thanks to the stringent standards of our in-house testing processes. The powerful and reliable Bosch drive unit, neatly contained in its own housing, is powered by the battery slotted neatly into the custom down tube. Working seamlessly with the wide-ranging, easy-to-use Shimano 9-speed gears, they provide quiet, unobtrusive and smooth assistance to back up your pedalling. Wide Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres – easily accommodated by a revised frame design with extra clearance – provide ample grip, easy rolling and smooth comfort on any surface. Our Natural Fit saddle and carefully selected bars, stem and grips ensure you’ll be comfortable on any ride, long and short. Shimano’s powerful MT200 hydraulic disc brakes serve up plenty of stopping power in all weathers, and the Suntour suspension fork adds 100mm of bump and pothole-smoothing travel to the mix. From city streets and the daily commute to weekend off-road exploring, the Acid Hybrid ONE has got it all covered.

That’s why they gave the Acid Hybrid an aluminium Superlite chassis with double-butted tubes, which shave weight where it isn’t needed and add extra thickness where strength is important. Advanced hydroforming is what gives it its sleek looks and the elegant, oversized down tube houses both the Bosch drive unit and the battery. Their acclaimed Agile Ride Geometry gives the Acid Hybrid easy, intuitive handling to keep you safe, whether you’re exploring a trail or riding to the office. Internally routed cables – including for a future dropper post upgrade – keep everything tidy, reduce maintenance and ensure your gear shifts stay precise. And integrated mudguard mounts mean it’s a cinch to fit full-length fenders to help keep you dry on the road, all year round.
