A solid cross touring bike with a balanced character and suspension fork with lockout. The stiff frame combined with hydraulic disc brakes is suitable for touring, leisure and fitness. The Multi Feature Dropout allows direct fitting of post mount disc brakes, making the system more rigid and lighter. The Suntour NEX MLO suspension fork comes
with a mechanical lockout which makes climbing easy. The Frame Save System consists of a replaceable derailleur hanger with integrated thread so that the frame won`t be damaged. Clean cable routing makes maintenance easy. The full Shimano Acera 3x9 groupset gives a wide gear range. The Schwalbe Smart Sam Active is specially developed for CUBE, with lots of traction.

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 Post Mount: The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fibre frames and top aluminium full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren’t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight, in this case saving 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.
Aluminium Lite: 6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant, high-elongation material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness.
