AERIUM C:68

Race

The new Aerium C:68 Race is a high performance machine for podium-chasing triathletes and time triallists. You want proof? Well, it helped Andreas Raelert to a sensational 2nd place at the 2015 Kona Ironman. The superior carbon frame and performance-orientated equipment are optimised in every detail, representing the perfect symbiosis of ultimate performance and aerodynamics. You just ran out of excuses... but you also increased your chances of besting the competition.

AERIUM C:68 Race

Frame

When we set out to develop the Aerium C:68 we had a simple goal in mind: to produce one of the fastest time trial frames currently available. That's why we equipped the light, stiff Advanced Twin Mould carbon frame with rear-facing horizontal dropouts - just one of the features that contributes to this bike's astonishing torsional and aerodynamic efficiency. As you'd expect, the clean lines and internal cable routing aren't just there for looks - they're primarily to reduce air resistance - and we proved this by refining the design with the help of wind tunnel testing. The result is uncompromsing performance: whichever way you set up the geometry or seating position, the Aerium C:68 Race will turn every ounce of effort into maximum forward propulsion.

Components

Maximum power output means minimum distraction, which is why we selected Shimano's ultra-reliable and silky smooth Ultegra groupset driving Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels. Our own aero Aerium C:62 carbon fork with integrated front brake is a design and aerodynamic masterpiece, complemented perfectly by the Profile Svet Zero Carbon handlebar. Thanks to the adjustable carbon stem and the option of using a seat post with or without offset, this TT racer can easily be set up for any triathlon event.

      • Advanced Twin Mold

        This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mold technology, precise inserts are used to ensure extra strength at high-stress frame points. This combination offers maximum control over fibre orientations during the lay-up and production process. The Advanced Twin Mold high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.

        Perfect aerodynamics and geometry adjustment characterize this package to the smallest detail the light and stiff Advanced Twin Mold carbon frame with horizontal dropouts is designed for the use of electronic circuit components to minimize air resistance. Battery and cable are hiding elegantly in the framework and also the brakes fit perfectly together with the Aerium Super HPC carbon fork.

      • Frame Safe System

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

      • Integrated Cable Routing

        Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.

      • Press Fit BB

        With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.

        On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
