Cube Cross Race Cyclocross bike features a lightweight rigid frame and is perfect for fitness riders, training and off-road riding. The RFR geometry delivers a specially designed riding position for cyclocross so that the rider remains agile but safe while riding out of the saddle. Made of aluminium superlite 6061 with an advanced mechanical forming process, the triple butted frame is equipped with particularly stiff cold forged 3D dropouts and internal cable routing to save weight while being dirt proof and deliver a clean look. For improved comfort while carrying the bike the brake cable is routed on top of the top tube and the brake levers are mounted on top of the handlebar for additional control on rough terrain.. The 27.2mm seatpost offers a welcome improvement in comfort while the Easton EA50 wheelset is prepared for clinchers, the Shimano 105 components include the cross-specific Shimano CX50 crank and powerful AVID Shorty 6 cantilever brakes keep control. All round, a well considered race machine.

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.
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.
Aluminium Superlight: Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and non-shearing. Cube's superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tube-sets with a high level of stiffness.
Internal Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
One Piece Design: Welded joints in Cube's high-quality aluminium frames are specially finished via this method and create the impression of seamless tube design. This generates the visual effect of moulding and ensures high load bearing capacity
