Frame: Our engineers dug deep into their bag of tricks for this frame. To improve its rigidity, they treated it to X12 quick releases front and rear. Both the frame and the Cube CSL carbon fork have been specifically developed to work with disc brakes. For the frame material, we chose our formidable Superlite aluminium tubeset, joined with our Smooth Welding process and featuring internal cable routing for clean looks and minimal maintenance. The Flip Flop adaptor means that either 140mm or 160mm discs can be used on the front wheel. And for winter training, there's even the option of mounting mudguards to keep the spray off.
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.
