Frame: CUBE's approach is simple: maximum performance, no compromise. We've built on well-known features - like our much-lauded Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) and Efficent Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics - to give our four pivot 7005 High Performance Aluminium frame a real edge. The Tuned Drive Position (TDP) integrates the drive unit into the frame in the best possible way, enabling us to optimise chainstay length and improve agility and overall handling as a result. Boost hubs with 148mm axles keep everything tracking true and straight and a purpose-designed battery mount means we can position it inside the frame. The incredibly clean looks are given a boost by running cables internally, protecting them from damage and adding to the bike's stunning appearance.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We 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.
