The Peloton Race is a sporty, reliable compact ten speed touring bike ideal for the fitness and training enthusiast with high quality equipment. The RFR-geometry offers a pleasant and comfortable seating position and makes riding out of the saddle safe and easy while maintaining agile handling. The Frame Save System protects the frame by placing the threads in the replaceable hanger. Made of Aluminium Superlite 6061 with anadvanced mechanical forming process, the double butted frame has strength to weight-optimized tubes with an outstanding SGI value of 150.2 and comes with particularly stiff cold forged 3D dropouts. The internal cable routing saves weight, is dirt proof and delivers a clean look. The tapered fork steerer delivers optimum stiffness and a better distribution of forces. The Aero Flex Stays – cross-ovalized thin seat tubes for high riding comfort – deliver lateral stiffness while being aerodynamic. Equipped with Shimano 105 transmission for perfect shifting performance, available as compact or triple version. The CUBE Wing Race Bar is a light handlebar with a wing shape for a comfortable hand position and optimum ergonomics. You have everything you need to own the road.

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.
