A great entry to the road bike experience. The Peloton comes with an attractive frameset and smooth riding characteristics. The double butted Alu Superlight frame features Ready for Race geometry for a relaxed and comfortable riding position to make riding out of saddle safe and easy whilst maintaining agile handling. The Aero Flex Stays – cross-ovalized thin seat tubes for high riding comfort – deliver lateral stiffness while being aerodynamic and the frame also features cold forged 3D dropouts for added stiffness. The frame also has a clean look with weight saving and dirt proof internal cable routing. This is complemented by The CUBE CSL Race Carbon fork with tapered aluminium steerer which are lightweight, stiff and precise. The Frame Save System protects the frame by placing the threads in the replaceable hanger. The Peloton is also equipped with a fast-rolling CUBE RA 0.7 Aero wheelset and Shimano Sora 2x10 shifting for reliable gear changes.
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.
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.
One Piece Design: Welded joints in Cube's high-quality aluminium frames are specially finished via this method and create the impression of a seamless tube design. This generates the visual effect of moulding and ensures high load bearing capacity.
