No fuss, no unnecessary parts. A Syntace cockpit, fast wheels and the complete Ultegra groupset are the perfect components for this fast machine. The use of Twin Mold technology allows perfect control of the wall thickness and the usage of resin, especially on highly stressed areas of the frame. Oversized carbon tubes for the main frame and the chainstays deliver maximum stiffness and the best strength to weight ratio. The tapered steerer tube offers optimum stiffness and a better distribution of forces. Hybrid Cable Routing gives a clean look and great function. Better still, all this weighs in at only 7.6kg.
Tapered Steerer: This new steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and generates a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means that the greatest possible steering precision is generated. 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.
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 to build a wider down tube and more broadly spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the
logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. Cube use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Advanced Twin Mould: The Advanced Twin Mold process eliminates any dangerous
folding by continuous control of carbon fibres during
the curing process. This is made possible by an internal
form which provides the perfect frame form during the
layup process. Each individual fibre remains precisely
in position as it cures. In this way less material can be
used as the individual layers can be more accurately
and reliably positioned. This production method
also makes it possible to increase the carbon fibre
proportion in line with anticipated loadings at specific
points on the frame.
Multi Purpose Hanger: At the upper level models
of the AGREE GTC Cube mount the Multi Purpose Hanger.
This makes fitting the internal cable routing easier
because there is a bigger opening at the chainstay. On
the other hand for both shifting systems, the electronic
and the classic system, the perfect cable routing can be
offered. Furthermore it comes with the proven frame
save system protecting the dropout of the frame.
Hybrid Cable Routing: The “no fuss” function of electronic shifting convinces
more and more riders. Even long-time friends of classic
gear shifting won’t want to do without the comfort and
performance of electronic shifting once they have used it.
We have equipped our upper range AGREE GTC and LITENING
SUPER HPC models with the possibility to house both kinds
of gear shifting. You can easily switch to the new electronic
system because you need only different cable stoppers
at the downtube and another flap for the bottom bracket
where you can fix the Shimano Short Battery mount nicely.
