Bring the world closer - the CUBE Kathmandu Hybrid C:62

CUBE's iconic Kathmandu lineup gets a carbon-framed, Bosch SX-powered boost.

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalaya, Kathmandu is widely regarded as the world's foremost adventure capital. CUBE's rugged, adaptable Kathmandu lineup has always channelled that spirit of exploration. Now, with an elegant new carbon frame and fork, the Kathmandu Hybrid C:62 brings the world even closer.

Key to the new range is a pair of lightweight carbon frames – in classic double diamond format, as well as an accessible Easy Entry design – with matching full carbon forks. Made from CUBE's proprietary C:62® carbon, the lighter frame and fork sacrifice nothing in the strength and durability department – and a lighter touring bike means, of course, that it's better to ride.

But it's not just light. It's also great to look at. The IC 3.0 rear carrier incorporates an exceptionally sturdy luggage rack into the structure of the frame, for an almost organic look that's as practical as it is elegant. And internal cable routing flatters the frame's clean lines whilst helping to reduce maintenance.

Of course a touring bike needs to be practical too, and it's here that the Kathmandu Hybrid C:62 really shines. From its future-proof UDH gear hanger to clearance for 50mm tyres, the detail is all about making it easy to live with. The included full length mudguards, lighting set and kickstand are all adventure-ready, and there's scope to run a handlebar-mounted bag for even more carrying capacity.

Complementing the frame's elegant functionality and light weight, Bosch's SX drive system and 400Wh battery with Kiox display offers natural-feeling support for every rider. With up to 55Nm on tap – and the option to add a 250Wh PowerMore range extender – it's the perfect ride partner.

There are two specification levels available in the Kathmandu Hybrid C:62 range, each one available in a choice of Classic or Easy Entry frame configurations. The Kathmandu Hybrid C:62 SLX 400X features Shimano's reliable 12-speed Deore gears and hydraulic disc brakes, while the Kathmandu Hybrid C:62 SLT 400X adds Newmen Phase 30 carbon wheels as well as Shimano's peerless 12-speed XT gears and hydraulic disc brakes.

But as every adventurer knows, equipment is just a means to an end. You don't need to go to the ends of the earth – or even Kathmandu – to find new experiences. Whether you're setting off on a weekend ride into the countryside or heading out into the mountains for a longer tour, the Kathmandu Hybrid C:62 will help bring the world closer.
