About the Cube Hyde RaceCUBE’s engineers took everything they’d learned from building fast, lightweight mountain bike frames and put it to good use in the Hyde. The frame is built with torsional rigidity – and therefore efficient pedalling – in mind. CUBE used double-butted aluminium tubes and their advanced mechanical forming process to put material where it’s needed for strength and remove it where possible to save weight. An eccentric bottom bracket enables belt tension to be adjusted easily, and ultra-neat mudguard and luggage carrier mounts enable the easy addition of these accessories without spoiling the clean lines of your bike. And the sleek, lightweight fork performs as good as it looks, giving precise and nimble steering and a surprising degree of comfort on rough city streets. Need to get from A to B across town as fast as possible? The Hyde Race is the right tool for the job. Light, quick and comfortable, it’s the city bike of choice for discerning riders looking for an efficient, environmentally-friendly means of transport. It is, in many ways, a masterpiece of understatement. The silent Gates Carbon Drive is an important part of its appeal, rendering oil-stained clothing – not to mention regular maintenance – a thing of the past. And it goes without saying that ‘Race’ isn’t just a marketing tag that CUBE have tacked on. This bike has earned its speedy moniker, because they’ve sweated the details to make it as rapid as possible in the urban jungle. The frame is built with torsional rigidity – and therefore efficient pedalling – in mind. Double-butted tubes and our advanced mechanical forming process make it both light and exceptionally strong. And the sleek, lightweight fork performs just as well as it looks, giving precise and nimble steering. From its state-of-the-art Shimano Alfine hub to fast-rolling Schwalbe tyres and stealth looks, the Hyde Race is a pure-bred urban speed machine.

To help fund his studies at University, bike-mad Marcus Pürner started importing frames from the Far East and assembled bikes in the corner of his parents’ furniture factory – Cube Bikes was born. From the factory in Waldershof, the company has grown into a major bike manufacturer. Originally an MTB brand, Cube now exports a range of bikes to 34 countries across the world, including Cube hybrid bikes, while still staying true to its MTB heritage. The company is also proud sponsors of the Belgium Pro Continental team, Wanty-Groupe Gobert and the Cube Action Team.CUBE SizingFrame Size (CM)46-50cm50-54cm54-58cm58-62cmRider Height (CM)155-169cm169-180cm180-193cm193-200cmChoosing the bike size depends on the type of bike, your height, your riding style, and your preference.
