Of all the leading brands in the road e-bike sector, Cube’s rise to prominence is arguably the most recent.

Yet it has long recognised the potential of e-road bikes, and the Agree Hybrid C:62 SL Disc was actually one of the first dedicated e-road bikes to hit the market in 2017.

It might have arrived even sooner but Cube insisted on waiting for a motor system that allowed it to replicate the feel of a regular road bike as closely as possible.

Fazua’s Evation system weighs under 5kg, keeping the bike’s overall weight to 13.5kg, and is compact enough for Cube to use a similar geometry to its non-electric Agree road platform.

‘Road bikes have a tendency towards elegance and functional simplicity, and we didn’t see that as having to be any different in an e-road design,’ Cube says.

That explains the sleek integration of the bottom bracket-based drive system. According to Cube, ‘The frame was built around the motor and battery.’

An unobtrusive, bar-mounted remote offers four levels of assistance, and a hilly 80km ride is well within the system’s capacity.

The battery and motor can also be removed altogether should you wish to go for a ride without any assistance at all.

The Cube Agree e-bike range comprises three models: the Agree C:62 Race (£3,499), the Agree C:62 SL Disc pictured here (£4,499) and the Agree C:62 SLT Disc (£7,199).
