Pure driving pleasure with the Cube Hyde
The entry-level model in the Hyde family already offers features that make daily and demanding use possible without any problems. The chic rigid fork saves weight and ensures perfect steering characteristics. Unlike the other models in this series, this version is equipped with a Shimano Deore derailleur, which offers 27 gears. This can be an advantage especially in cities and areas where a particularly large number of gradients have to be mastered. Even on long weekend tours, the slightly wider range of translations is a pleasant relief. This series is also equipped with a Shimano hydraulic disc brake, which remains controllable in every situation. The large volume Schwalbe Big Apple tyres in 29 inch format are not only outstandingly quiet running, but also a real benefit when overcoming obstacles. With a weight of just over 13 kilograms, the bike is very light, but at the same time extremely robust and durable thanks to its features. The puristic look, which is complemented by the colour-coordinated features laid inside, is chic and sporty at the same time.
Reduced luxury with the Hyde Pro
Based on the same construction of the Hyde, the Pro version offers some modifications that should meet the needs of frequent riders. Shifting is done with the Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub. The Gates belt drive and the Gates crankset absorb the force optimally. This combination ensures that mechanical wear on the drive components is kept to a minimum. Repairs, the classic readjustment of the gearshift, or the replacement of individual components are almost completely eliminated. The low-maintenance components make the Cube Hyde Pro a constant runner and allow a daily and hard use at every outdoor condition. The low weight of just over 13 kilograms and the smooth 29-inch Schwalbe Big Apple tyres make the Hyde Pro fast, light and manoeuvrable.
Cube Hyde Race, the fastest of its kind
Even lighter, more agile, and faster. The Hyde Race is one of the fastest city and fitness bikes ever built. In order to achieve this goal, numerous details have been sensibly optimized. This racer is driven by the noble Shimano Alfine hub gear with 8 gears. The power is transmitted by a Gates carbon timing belt. This drive concept is on the one hand almost noiseless and on the other extremely low-maintenance. With the ingenious Split & Slide dropout, the belt can be replaced in a few simple steps if necessary. The belt tension can be easily adjusted to the required level at any time using two adjusting screws. The narrow Schwalbe Road Cruiser tyres used are a logical decision and illustrate where the focus of this bike lies: in speed. With an incredible total weight of just under 12 kilograms, the Cube Hyde Race is the perfect choice for riders who want to travel quickly and effectively in the city without becoming a regular in the workshop.
