Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance

The Reaction Performance is available in a 400Wh, 500Wh or 625Wh battery version, in each the battery is completely integrated into the frame offering great impact and weather protection. The battery and can be easily and quickly removed for charging and can be charged in situ.

Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance

The Schwalbe’s 2.35 Smart Sam tyres offer reliable grip on a mix of surfaces and are suitable for riding on tarmac and the Suntour XCM ATM front fork gives you 100mm of travel to soak up any rough terrain. Shiamano’s MT200 hydraulic disc brakes provide good stopping power.

Our Opinion Of The Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance

The 2021 Cube Reaction Hybrid Performance replaces the very popular Acid model and rather than reworking the Acid this bike has been totally redesigned.

It is equally as happy on gravel as it is tarmac, and as such would make a great commuter e-bike. There is kickstand, mudguard and pannier rack mounting points – so you could quite easily use it as a daily commuter.

With a lovely looking design, Bosch 3rd Gen Performance Line Motor and excellent Cube build quality the Reaction Performance is great value for money.

  • What size would I need. I am 5f 9 inches but have long legs in comparison to the rest of my body.( 34 inside leg).
    Question asked by Jackie on Apr 18 2021 7:51PM
    With longer legs we would suggest Large 19" but the best idea is to pop into one of stores so you can try for size and see which is more comfortable for you
  • Hi can the assistance be switched off when not needed?
    Question asked by Paul Brownley on Mar 10 2021 4:54PM
    Yes it can or you can use ECO mode which just compensates for the extra weight.
