Frame: The Elite C:68 chassis represents carbon frame construction perfection. The basics include weight under 1000g, huge stiffness with superb comfort thanks to an advanced twin mould monocoque construction method, and advanced design features including a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell, X12 HR axles and internal cable routing. Incorporating the rear disc mount in the chainstay enables us to spec slender seatstays for extra comfort, backed up by the 27.2mm diameter seat post. The frame can also features internal cable routing for a stealth dropper post, while our Agile Ride Geometry displays the manoeuvrability and precision handling you'd expect from CUBE.
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.
