Chic retro look with modern technology: The Cube Elly
In recent years, the so-called "Dutch bikes" have had a comeback. However, the enthusiasm to have bought a suitable bike at the flea market is often followed by disappointment. Technically, these used bikes are outdated and driving through the narrow city centre is unnecessarily strenuous and often dangerous. With the Elly series from Cube, the solution to this problem is obvious. The chic retro look of the frame is skilfully combined by the manufacturer with the latest technology and high-quality components. These stylish bikes for cities and tours offer more comfort and finesse than you might expect at first glance. The series was completely revised in Waldershof for the new season. The double-butted aluminium frame has been slightly slimmed in the down tube, which saves 300 grams in weight. With clever details, such as the integrated luggage rack, chain guard and lighting system, the bikes of the Elly series can be used variably and offer maximum comfort and safety - even under the strict requirements of the German road traffic regulations. With the mount developed by Cube for the integrated stand, it is plugged into the mount from below and thus is stable enough even for larger weights. Now you can carry a larger load on your shopping trip or carry saddlebags with plenty of food. Two fresh paintwork finishes and three different sizes are available for each of the two equipment variants "Cruise" and "Ride". So every rider will find the perfect dream bike! In any case, these bikes ensure a stylish and fashion-conscious appearance, whether in front of the café or on a leisurely weekend tour.
Elly Cruise with hub gears
The "Cruise" features a low-maintenance and user-friendly Shimano Nexus hub gear with 8 gears. This drive is ideally suited for the city, shopping and smaller tours. With the Cruise, cumbersome switching on and off and readjusting the gearshift is a thing of the past. The classic combination with the uncomplicated rim brake is absolutely reasonable. A Trelock lighting system and the suitably painted chain guard ensure safety. With the Racktime carrier, the bike is also particularly variable and can be easily combined with baskets and bags. In no time at all, the Elly Cruise becomes a cargo donkey for the next flea market, or a sporty tourer for adventures in nature. And if you are fully loaded on your way home, you don't have to do without comfort! The Suntour suspension fork gently balances shocks and bumps and the Schwalbe Little Big Ben tires roll smoothly over obstacles. A multitude of loving details, such as the super chic Cube Retro saddle with integrated suspension, the leather-look handles in contrasting colours or the colour-coordinated tyres, create a harmonious and charming overall picture. The internal cable routing also ensures a harmonious and tidy look and prevents mechanical wear of the components. The additional choice of two different paintwork finishes guarantees the bike of your choice for every taste!
Elly Ride with derailleur
If you don't want to do without the great retro look, but would rather go on sporty tours or regularly have to climb steeper slopes, the "Ride" equipment variant is the best choice. The Shimano derailleur with 24 gears offers a slightly wider transmission ratio than the hub gear of the "Cruise". The overall slightly lower weight makes this bike the sports and touring version within the Elly family. With matching saddlebags on the integrated carrier, generous tours or an extended shopping spree can be planned. Of course, the popular details, as with the Elly Cruise, are also available in matching contrasting colours. The two different finishes awaken the desire for spring and long tours in nature.
