The Cube Litening SUPER HPC Pro is a high end road frame including a high tech carbon fibre fork. Fast as lightning and light as a feather. The verdict of the press: Outstanding. Using high modulus carbon fibre Cube managed to reduce the frame weight to 860g. RFR geometry delivers a sporty, streched position for maximum acceleration and agile riding performance. The Super HPC carbon fibre frame made with Advanced Twin Mold Technology features full carbon bearing housings and Hybrid Cable Routing gives a clean look and great functionalty. All details are focused on weight and stiffness.
Mechanical or electronic transmission components can be mounted without compromise. The complete Shimano 11-speed Ultegra group with compact chainset is included. Equipped with Fulcrum Racing 55 wheels, lightweight and stiff for fast acceleration, and Schwalbe’s new One tyre for perfect grip and fast rolling characteristics. Also features a Syntace cockpit with F149 stem and Racelite carbon bar which is lightweight but stiff and a flexing CUBE Performance Motion Post to add comfort.
Frame: Super HPC, Monocoque, Advanced Twin Mold Technology
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.
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.
Integrated 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.
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. All SUPER HPC models from 2014 on are manufactured using this high-tech method.
Multipurpose Hanger: For the LITENING SUPER HPC and high-end models of the AGREE GTC Cube use the Multi Purpose Hanger. This makes fitting the internal cable routing easier because there is a bigger opening at the chainstay. It also allows perfect cable routing to be offered for both electronic and mechanical shifting systems. Furthermore it comes with the proven Frame Save System protecting the dropout of the frame.
