{{ vm.state.webThumbOverlay.code }}


With the combined power of the rider and Bosch Performance CX drive make the ultimate long-distance, adventure rides which will take beyond your goals. Cube's goal when creating the Reaction Hybrid HPA was to maximise fun on the trail.

This has been achieved by creating an entirely new, next-generation frame which improves rigidity and stability without adding weight. The X-12 axle at the rear 'complete with adaptable hanger' ensures the most efficient forward propulsion, whilst the Agile Ride Geometry gives the Reaction Hybrid SL a lively character. Equipped with the high spec that has become commonplace amongst Cube bikes, the Reaction Hybrid HPA SL 500 runs a 1x11 XT groupset, a Manitou Minute fork and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, where will this bike take you on your next adventure?

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.
X12 Through Axle
In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.
Integrated Cable Routing
Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
