You know that niggling feeling that your bike might, just possibly, be holding you back a little? You won't get that with the new Access Hybrid EX. Combining a brand-new 29er e-bike frame with a 120mm fork, Boost rear end and powerful fourth-generation Bosch CX drive system, it leaves nothing on the table in pursuit of trail-riding e-bike nirvana. the engineering team pulled out all the stops to create a more versatile, better handling and easier to live with e-MTB specifically for women - and it's even available as a trapeze frame. Starting with the new Modular Battery System, they created a gravity cast down tube that entirely encloses the powerful Bosch power unit behind a cover. The result isn't just neat, it's also freed up enough space for the option of a more powerful 625Wh battery for extended range. With internal cable routing - including for a future dropper post upgrade - and features aimed at reliable, intuitive handling, it's all the e-MTB you're ever likely to need. The Suntour XCM34 Boost suspension fork has the travel and steering precision to keep you comfortable and out of trouble, aided and abetted by big, grippy Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres and powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with big 203mm rotors at the front - so you'll always be in full control. Meanwhile, the Purion-controlled Bosch motor boosts your pedalling input via Sram's incredible SX Eagle 12-speed transmission, giving you the torque and gear range to easily tackle climbs that you previously considered unrideable. Put it all together and it's clear that, if you're not feeling it out on the trail, it's not the bike that's the problem. Ride more, ride further, ride faster. What are you waiting for?
Never stand still for too long. It's a pretty good approach to take in life, and it also happens to be one that you could apply to the frame designers. The brand-new Access Hybrid 29 is the result of their never-ending quest for perfection - a fourth-generation Bosch-powered e-MTB that builds on all the experience to make a better handling, easier to live with bike. With a design centred around the new Modular Battery System, its sleek looks are down to the fact that the Bosch power unit lives entirely inside the down tube under a protective, easily accessed cover. The new design frees up enough space for a bottle cage mount and the option of a higher capacity battery, so you can extend your rides even further. The smooth, powerful Bosch motor boosts your pedalling via an intentionally rigid frame design that encompasses a 12mm Boost rear axle, oversized chain stays and a 1.5in head tube - all features designed to ensure efficient power delivery, accurate steering and rock-steady handling. CUBE designed it around the needs of a 120mm fork - so you've plenty of suspension travel to smooth out the trail ahead - and internal cable routing even includes provision for a stealth dropper post upgrade. And the best news of all? CUBE designed all this sophisticated frame wizardry in both standard and trapeze options, so that every woman can find the perfect Access Hybrid 29 for her own needs.
