Battle of the Cube E-Bikes: Full Suspension Stereo vs Hardtail Reaction
New for 2022: two top-of-the-line Cube eMTBs battling it out for a coveted spot as your adventure steed. Let's chat perks, upgrades, and what to consider before you make that age-old MTB decision between a full suspension and a hardtail.
Both bikes have the top of the line components in their lineup - what Cube dubs the "Pro" models - with 4th Gen Bosch CX motor, Purion display, Shimano Deore drivetrain, and 27.5" or 29" wheels depending on the frame size. Cube also offers a variety of add-on accessories (rack, lights, fenders, and kickstand) to make these eMTBs more versatile and commuter-capable, meaning you could have one bike handle all of your needs!
