One look at this bike tells you all you need to know: it's special. Our design team created a sophisticated, gravity cast down tube and bottom bracket to house the Bosch CX drive unit and PowerTube battery. It serves several purposes. First, it's undeniably elegant. Second, it keeps the Reaction Hybrid SLT's centre of gravity as low as possible, for better handling. And third, it's an incredibly stiff backbone for the rest of the chassis. Combined with the Boost 12mm thru-axle, tapered head tube and Agile Ride Geometry, the result is a Bosch e-bike frame that's as intuitive and inspiring to ride as any of our mountain bikes. You can even charge the battery without removing it, if you wish. Internal cable routing complements the clean appearance and keeps gear shifts slick in even the filthiest of conditions, and there's room for up to two bottle cage mounts – so you can stay properly hydrated, even on longer rides.
