Cube Reaction GTC 29" Hardtail Bike

This is where the Formula 1 class of mountain bike starts. From the stiff but light carbon frame to its high-quality features and uncompromising spec, the Reaction GTC 29" Hardtail Bike is amongst the very best high-performance hardtails. It's equally at home blasting trails as it is racing endurance events.

Lightweight Carbon Fibre Hardtail

The Reaction GTC 29" Hardtail Bike's twin mould frame offers everything you'll need from a top-notch carbon frame. Stiffness-enhancing features like the large frame profile, tapered headtube, PressFit bottom bracket shell and X12 axles at the rear combine to offer powerful drive, high steering precision and light weight. The 27.2mm seat post offers added comfort, while the direct mount derailleur system, front mech design and internal cable routing are all state-of-the-art. Agile Ride Geometry offers maximum riding fun, control and comfort rolled into one.

Reliable, Race-ready Components

The Reaction GTC 29" Hardtail Bike comes with Manitou's M30 fork, which offers the perfect blend of comfort and control, as well as 100mm of travel at the lowest possible weight. Shimano BR M315 hydraulic disc brakes provide reliable, powerful braking with a 180mm rotor up front for better cooling on long descents. Shimano's XT 2x11 gear components - including XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur - set the standard for shifting reliability, while the Race Face AEffect SL double chainset (36/26T) gives this bike an air of exclusivity. The wheelset - featuring durable Deore hubs laced to tubeless-ready Cube EX21 rims - and a performance-orientated but comfortable Cube Active 1.1 saddle, round out this performance hardtail MTB.

Technologies:

  • Adaptable X12 Hanger: Cube optimised its new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. Cube can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
  • Twin Mould Technology: The Twin Mould technique uses re-usable cores during the lay-up process to ensure precision frame moulding. Special inserts guarantee optimum ply orientation during the production process to add extra strength at frame points subject to higher loads. This improves the safety of the product and delivers outstanding stiffness characteristics.
  • Gran Turismo Composite: In designing the GTC carbon fibre frames, safety and comfort are the main factors. Cube uses high modulus fibres for the parts which are stressed the most – the headtube, the seat tube top and the bottom bracket area. That is why the frame still offers flex and comfort resulting from the flexible tubes. Our special production process with inner and outer moulding forms ensure that the minimum of required material is used, reducing overall weight even with complex frame designs. All GTC frames have of course passed DIN-Plus testing.
  • Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in its series of big wheel bikes. It also added the 27.5" wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let Cube achieve the same trail as its 26" bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly it shortened the chainstays without compromising the seat angle. Cube invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give it more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least, it kept the BB height the same as on its 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a Cube 29er or 27.5" bike.
  • Integrated Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
  • Press Fit BB: With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows Cube to build a wider downtube and more broadly spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
  • Stealth Ready: Dropper seatposts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame, if not required, will be sealed with a cover for protection.
  • 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 headtube. On all of the Cube 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.
  • X12 Through Axle: In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. An insert in the right-hand dropout, which is secured by a bolt, sets the position of the wheel. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.

Easy Assembly

When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
