Weighing in at close to 8kg, the Cube Agree GTC Pro is ready to take you into the world of racing. Featuring a lightweight Monocoque carbon frame manufactured using Twin Mold Technology to allow perfect control of the wall thickness and minimize the amount of resin - especially on highly stressed areas of the frame - and designed with RFR geometry for maximum control and agile handling. Notice also the thin seatstays for increased comfort. This is complemented by a tapered steerer tube to deliver optimum stiffness and a better distribution of forces. The GTC Pro is well spec'd with super reliable and durable Shimano 105 transmission components and a lightweight Fulcrum Racing 77 wheelset and Schwalbe One tyres to deliver confident grip in bends. Suitable also for longer rides, this bike features an ergonomic CUBE Wing Race Bar which offers different hand positions for relaxation and a CUBE Performance Post for comfort.

Tapered Steerer: This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of Cube's carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.
Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Press Fit BB: With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows the use of a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
Twin Mould Technology: All GTC models are built using this complex manufacturing process. In this process Cube can eliminate possibly dangerous folding by constant control of carbon fibres during the curing process. By using fixed internal forms at junction points the quantity of resin is considerably reduced and the fibres bonded more tightly together. The result is increased product safety and improved stiffness-to-weight values.
Frame Safe System: To protect their high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
