The 2018 Cube Reaction Hybrid Race 500: a perfect hardtail option in a sea of full-susepension e-MTBs. Hardtail mountain bikes used to be all the rage. Find out why with the Cube Reaction Hybrid Race. 2.6" plus sized Smart Sam tires provide traction and comfort. The RockShox Judy Silver Air shock with 110mm of travel is certainly no slouch.
