Cube: solid second-hand electric bikes
Founded in the early 90's, the German brand Cube has become over the years one of the largest bicycle producers in Europe. Its models are distributed in over 35 countries.
Based in Waldershof, the brand designs, tests and fully assembles all its bikes in its state-of-the-art factory, where its own wheels are also manufactured.
Cube's used EVs combine endurance and comfort, while meeting the needs of the most demanding cyclists.

Indeed, all of the brand's electric bikes are equipped with Bosch motors. At Cube, you will find more than a hundred different models, including both comfortable, easy-riding bikes and MTB electric designed for enduro riding.
MTB Refurbished Cube electrics: the assurance of solidity
Cube is one of the market leaders in the European bicycle industry. Equipped with a Bosch engine, these bikes are designed to last over time. To achieve this, they undergo a whole series of tests in the Cube laboratories. For example, the braking system is designed to offer great stability and impeccable resistance to wear. The brakes are tested in both wet and dry conditions to guarantee perfect use, whatever the weather.
The directional tube of the MTB is also tested intensively, as it is a particularly vulnerable area on a MTB. It must therefore pass a long series of tests without showing any degradation before production can begin. Thanks to all this, the Cube VTTAEs are among the best on the market.
