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 Lite 6061 with particularly stiff 3D dropouts and cross-ovalized down tubes. The frame is specially designed for use with disc brakes, with the cold-forged brake mount and seat stay brace delivering high rigidity and good brake heat dissipation. Featuring great spec like the reliable Shimano 3x10 components with SLX rear derailleur and SLX cranks and Shimano Deore disc brakes with a 180mm rotor at the front wheel for super stopping power. The Fox 32 Float CTD air suspension fork offers adjustable damping and a climb trail and descent mode. are very reliable, as the Radium MA wheelset. The package is rounded off by the distinctive CUBE Performance stem and CUBE Flat Bar Race.

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.
