Cube 2010 AMS HPC – Frame Only.
FSP 4 Link: All our suspension models are ‘true’ four pivot models. One of the four pivots is situated between the rear stays and the seat tube. The pivots are placed in such positions that the rear train will follow the irregularities of the track in a natural way. The position of the pivots prevents a hardening of the suspension during braking. The power transmission to the rear wheel is optimal and without discernible pedal back lash.
Frame Saving System: To protect our high-end aluminium frames these are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The tread is in the hanger itself and not in the frame, as usual. In case of a crash this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced with a new one.
High Performance Composite: Ever since the first use of carbon as a strengthening agent, late 1960’s carbon is surrounded by an aura of substantives.
Carbon is associated with terms like extremely stiff, professional material and the black gold. The characteristic black colour is the result of the heating of the polymer named polyacrylnitril. The fine treads visible are bundled parallel and even in this early stadium already are very strong and can carry heavy loads. By treating the bundles with carbon with an artificial resin, mostly epoxy resin, the fibres are connected and fixated. After drying and hardening the fibres get their Matrix coating to protect from harmful influences like chemicals and UV radiation. The spectrum of fibres ranges from extremely stiff to very compliant. The union of the fibres with epoxy resin embeds the features like stiffness and compliance in larger woven sheets of material. These sheets are woven together multi directional. Next the material is constructed to the needed shape and get a heat treatment. The technical advantage of carbon is the combination of rigidity and flexibility. This can only be reached by the exact mixture of fibres applied in the right direction and the correct execution of processes. To test the quality of our HPC frames we use the finite element technology. Running a computer simulation with a certain mixture of fibres and the forces projected by use we get a good impression of the frames’ capabilities.
Twin Mould Technology: The AMS HPC frame is made in Twin Mould Technology. This technology prevents unforeseen folds in the tissue layers which give less-than-standard strength spots which are often outwardly invisible. Twin Mould enables safe and relatively high wall thicknesses, meaning highest quality of procedure and maximum safety.
