Cube Elite C:68 Race 29" Hardtail Bike

Listen up, XC and marathon racers! The combination of a new and even lighter, high end C:68 carbon frame with brand new Shimano 2x11 XTR transmission and a RockShox SID suspension fork promises every racer the perfect riding experiene.


The new Elite C:68 chassis represents frame construction perfection. The basics include weight under 1000g, huge stiffness with superb comfort thanks to an advanced twin mould monocoque construction method, and completely new design features including a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell, X12 axles and internal cable routing. Incorporating the rear disc mount in the chainstay enables us to spec slender seatstays for extra comfort, backed up by the 27.2mm diameter seat post. The frame features internal cable routing for a stealth dropper post. Agile Ride Geometry displays the manouvrability and precision handling you'd expect from CUBE.


The XTR 2x11 gear system is perfect for transmitting the rider's power to the trail. An 11-40 cassette and stiff and light double chainset (26/36) with side swing front mech combine to offer optimal gear shift performance. The XTR XC brakes make use of magnesium and carbon to reduce weight, without sacrificing performance or control. Super light CSW MA 3.9 Straightpull system wheels with high grade hub technology from DT-Swiss back up the transmission's performance with superb acceleration. A 100mm RockShox SID RL suspension fork completes this race-ready bike.
