Cube Reaction GTC SL 29 Hardtail Bike

A high-performance carbon 29er hardtail with all the advantages of the bigger 29in wheels but as agile as a 26in bike.

Optimum strength to weight value results from the tapered head tube with integrated headset.

Through Active Brake Cooling, a winglike support in front of the brake, airflow is directed towards the brake disc. The GTC carbon frame is produced using the Twin Mold Monocoque Technology. The oversized tube diameters of the head tube and the PressFit bottom bracket guarantee optimum lateral stiffness. The post mount rear brake saves weight. Internal Cable Routing delivers clean appearance and dirt protection.

The sophisticated 100mm Fox 32 Float CTD air fork stands for fun on the trail, with trail mode, lockout and adjustable rebound.

For perfect ergonomics the lever reach and bite point of the Formula RC Tune disc brake are adjustable.

The DT Swiss CSW MA 1.0 straight pull wheelset is especially lightweight and stiff for fast acceleration, while Schwalbe Rocket Ron/Racing Ralph Kevlar folding tires are very lightweight with low rolling resistance and optimum traction. Shimano XT 3x10 components are super reliable.

The Syntace F149 stem is sturdy and longlasting, while the RFR Flat Race Bar offers perfect 29in handling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redefining what I can do on an MTB First off, what a bargain! Really chuffed with the bike overall. Great spec and looks even sexier in the flesh. The carbon frame feels and looks very well made and being German, the detailing is top notch. Went out for a 20 mile ride on my local heath just to get a feel for it and was smiling insanely for the whole ride! I was amazed by the speed and agility of this beast and how easy I was able to traverse the terrain. It literally eats up the ground as it moves and I felt more confident in tackling rough trails at speed and throwing myself off drops etc than I would have with my 26" hardtail. This is my first experience of a 29er and I can now see what all the fuss is about, I'm definitely a convert! As a bonus my 5 mile ride to & from on tarmac was blistering, so this thing has duel purpose ability for sure. Bike arrived well packed and well setup and ready to ride so big thumbs up to Chain Reaction. 09 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great weight, great speed. I'm 6'5" so was weary over frame size. Compared several before buying this one. This was the best value and so far proved a good choice. Had some small issues with build quality. I.e. brakes, gears (even the seat) were all out of line, but only took an hour to sort. Overall, very happy! 03 February 2014
