No trail is too long, no mountain too high for the Reaction Hybrid HPA Race. Whether it's a ride with the family or a flat out blast on your favourite trails with your riding buddies, you'll discover a new appreciation for mountain biking with this bike. Combining human power with the Bosch CX motor - delivered to the rear wheel via an aluminium Superlite frame and a Shimano XT 11-speed transmission - results in a riding experience in a class of its own. Available as a 29er or with 27.5in wheels for the perfect fit, whatever your height.
Frame: The double butted aluminium Superlite frame was developed specifically to match the requirements of the new Bosch system, and we've upgraded it for 2017 to include clean-looking, low-maintenance internal cable routing. The frame is extremely stiff despite being very light - and that means fantastic drivetrain efficiency and superb steering precision. That's a good start, but it's really the combination of our in-house Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) and the optimal positioning of the Bosch system (ODP) that transforms the Reaction Hybrid Race into a fleet-footed, fast-accelerating trail rocket with the kind of handling that most e-bikes can only dream of.
Features: Bosch's new CX drive, with up to 75Nm of torque, sets the standards for MTB drive systems. It gives you the ultimate motor-driven support for longer rides, while taking you to impressive heights in exchance for relatively little effort. The standard battery is an impressive 500Wh for the best possible range. Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission - with XT ShadowPlus rear derailleur - has an exceptionally wide gear range, making it the perfect setup for an e-bike. It's the same story with the brakes, Shimano's BR-M315 hydraulic discs are powerful and providing reliable stopping in all weathers via 180mm rotors at both front and rear. Light, stiff wheels are built around Shimano XT hubs. The Rock Shox Recon Silver suspension fork features 100mm of smooth, controllable travel, stiff 32mm stanchions and adjustable rebound damping with remote lockout - perfect for clearing the path ahead and embarking on new trail adventures.
Agile Ride Geometry
We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.
Welded joints in our high-quality aluminum frames are specially finished via this method and create the impresssion of seamless tube design. This generates the visual effect of moulding and ensures high load bearing capacity.
The new STEREO , FRITZZ and HANZZ models are built using Advanced Hydroforming. Conventional hydroforming processes cannot achieve these custom shapes and technical advantages. As this manufacturing method reduces the number of welds, the weight is reduced while durability is increased.
