The proven Limited Series comes with new wheels. 27.5" wheels make a fast but still very lively and quick-reacting hardtail for ambitious riders in marathons and longer routes. This is thanks to Cube's Agile Ride Geometry for the 27.5" wheel size. The frame is manufactured using their Advanced Mechanical forming process from double butted Aluminium Superlite 6061 with particularly stiff 3D dropouts and cross-ovalized down tubes. The frame is especially designed for use with disc brakes, with a cold forged brake mount and seat stay bridge deliver high rigidity and good brake heat dissipation. The Frame Save System consists of a replaceable derailleur hanger with thread in the hanger. Featuring great spec like the reliable Shimano 3x10 components with Shimano XT rear derailleur and SLX cranks,
Deore disc brakes with 180mm front rotor offering confident performance on every terrain and the100mm Manitou Marvel 29 TS Air suspension fork with adjustable damping and a remote lockout. The wheelset features Shimano XT Centrelock hubs, DT Swiss spokes and CUBE ZX24 rims fitted with Schwalbe Rapid Rob tyres with low rolling resistance and optimum traction.
The distinctive completely CUBE branded cockpit contains top components like the CUBE Performance stem and CUBE Flat Race bar, meaning this bike has style as well as substance.
Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Three important details resulted. Increased fork offsets allows for the same trail as Cube's 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. A patented construction to mount the front derailleur gives more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least the BB height remains the same as on their 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
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.
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 has high elongation. Cube's Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
