XC and marathon racers pay attention! The combination of Cube’s new and fantastically light high-end C68 carbon frame, the brand new Shimano XTR groupset and an SID suspension fork promises race performance in its purest form. This bike is quick to accelerate and fast on the chase for winning times.
Carbon frame manufacturing perfection - that is what the new Elite C68 frame stands for. The frame is well below 1000g while still having exceptional stiffness and a remarkably comfortable ride. To achieve this Cube has used the latest in carbon technology, their Advanced Twin mould Monocoque process and a completely new frame design with details like the tapered head tube (with integrated bearing seats), PressFit bottom bracket, X12 rear axle and internal cable routing.
The chain stay mounted post mount disc tabs allow for more compliant seat stays and the slender 27.2mm diameter seat post adds even more comfort. A new feature is the provision for an internal dropper post routing. The fun and agile handling, typical of CUBE 29ers, comes from our Agile Ride Geometry (ARG).
The XTR drive train with 11-40 cassette and a 29" optimized 26/36 crank set represents the current optimum in shifting performance. The new XTR XC disk brakes with magnesium and carbon construction are very light, while being top notch performers. For that explosive acceleration the SL comes equipped with tubeless ready CSW MA 3.9 straight pull wheels. The superb 100mm RockShox SID RL suspension fork (with Pushloc remote lockout) completes this uncompromising race bike that wants to be ridden full throttle all the time.
