Frame: Form follows function. The top quality frame - made from double butted 6061 aluminium with a hydroformed downtube, combines maximum stability with uncrompromising steering precision. Our engineers have carefully considered both frame design and battery position. For example, the Easy Entry frame's double chamber seat tube, double chainstays and rack-mounted battery allows an easy step trough. By positioning the battery in the down tube for the Men's Classic and Trapeze frames, double tubes are eliminated while still improving handling and stability. Whichever you choose, you'll be assured of CUBE's legendary handling. The integrated IC luggage rack is as useful as it is elegant. A modular setup means that wear parts can be easily replaced. Optimised for the new Bosch Drive Unit in every conceivable detail, for 2017 we've ensured that each frame design - classic diamond, trapeze or step-through - has the battery positioned in the optimal position for strenght, stiffness and stability. Internally routed cables ensure consistently excellent gear shifting performance and add to the bike's clean looks.
Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
