Frame: With this frame we've shown that it's possible to develop a genuine enduro bike with an e-drive built in - and without compromising on performance. The CUBE Performance Cover - developed especially for aggressive trail riding - sets new benchmarks for integration and function. The integrated impact protection absorbs the initial energy of any unwanted impact on making contact with the ground, and the shock absorber takes on and neutralises the rest. Drive unit and frame are optimally protected against impacts. The integrated chain guide also keeps the chain stays free from gouges even on rougher trails. The Tuned Drive Position allowed us to keep the chainstays as short as possible, creating exemplary handling and suspension performance in combination with our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension system and 27.5-specific Agile Trail Geometry (ATG).
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.
