LITENING C:68 SLT Disc

Frame

Frame: It's hard to imagine a more beautiful rendition of state-of-the-art carbon techology than our Litening C:68. By using our most advanced C:68 fibre technology, innovative tube shapes and our Monocoque Advanced Twin Mould production technique we managed both to reduce the weight of the Litening C:68 SLT's frame to a sensational weight AND to increase both stiffness and comfort. We also added our dynamic C:68 full carbon fork, whose slim legs allow the Litening's rider to steer accurately through the tightest gap whilst also offering incredible vibration absorption.

Components

Features: With our range-topping SLT Disc model we opted for a unique groupset that'll have the same effect on riders' pulses as an overdose of espresso: Shimano's new-for-2017 Dura Ace Di2 groupset, complete with disc brakes. This is the kit that the pros race, and with good reason - nothing can match it for precision, smoothness or reliablity. An NEWMEN Advanced SL R.25 carbon wheelset, Syntace carbon finishing components and a Fizik Antares R3 saddle complete a spec list that reads more like a wish list. Improving on perfection? No... we think we're already there.

FAQ

Please find frequently asked questions about our CUBE Bikes here.

Who can I contact if I have a problem with my CUBE bike?

CUBE Dealer

Your first port of call should always be the CUBE shop where you bought the bike. Only the CUBE dealer with which you have the original sale contract is commited to processing complaints and warranty queries. Other CUBE dealers can process complaints handlings on a voluntary basis, but are not obliged to.

How long do I have guarantee / warranty on my CUBE bike?

WARRANTY TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Your CUBE bike is warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for 2 years with effect from the date of sale. In addition, we provide our customers with the following warranty in the event of frame breakage outside the statutory warranty period as follows:

For all frames and rigid forks from model years 2011 and older we guarantee from the date of sale from the dealer:

If a break occurs during this period (from date of sale), we will replace the frame with the same or similar. This warranty applies only to the frame. The cost of components necessary for the frame's function (e.g. seat post, derailleur, handlebar and stem, suspension fork …), even where a replacement frame necessitates replacement of some or all of these components, must be borne by the customer.

EXCLUSIONS:

For Fritzz, Hanzz, Two15, for all dirt bikes, and all frame exchanges add on parts are not included into this extended warranty. Here the 2 years limited warranty applies.

We reserve the right to repair defective frames or parts or to replace them with the corresponding updated model. A condition of the warranty is normal use of the bike in accordance with the manufacturer’s stipulations.

Modification work outside the statutory warranty period (2 years) is not carried out or refunded by us free of charge.

We therefore request that the customer be fully aware of this stipulation on conclusion of the sales contract in order to avoid possible misunderstandings at a later date.

EPO warranty

For all EPO 2011/2012 series Pedelecs with goSwiss rear wheel hub drive we grant a 2 year warranty for display, engine and battery. Warranty for the battery is limited to 1000 charge cycles with a remaining capacity of up to 80%. For Pedelec models built after 2013 we grant a 2 year warranty beginning with the date of sale. We ask you to inform the customer about exclusions and limitations in order to avoid any future misunderstandings. For our Hybrid Pedelec model frames the general CUBE warranty and guarantee conditions apply. For the Bosch motor and its associated components Bosch's own warranty conditions apply. Details about the Bosch system, the Bosch warranty and any limitations and conditions can be found in the Bosch manual which is enclosed with the bike. Any warranty claim relating to the Bosch motor must be processed via the Bosch service scheme.

BOSCH warranty:

The warranty period lasts 24 months from the date of sale of the eBike to the end consumer, but no later than 6 months after delivery of the Bosch components to the bike manufacturer. If the end consumer's eBike is intended for commercial use ( e.g. rental company, messenger service), the warranty period lasts 12 months.

Battery Pack warranty

A minimum of 500 charging cycles or 70% (300Wh) and 60% (400Wh) respectively of the nominal capacity (based on information stored on the Battery Pack) within the warranty period.

Special case: carbon frame and carbon forks

We offer you and your customer a CCR Service (CUBE Crash Replacement Service) = exchange service for damaged carbon frames and carbon forks. This exchange service is intended to provide an uncomplicated and cost-saving exchange service for your customer following a crash which results in damage to the frame/carbon forks.

Excluded from the guarantee and warranty are all forms of damage due to improper use or use not in accordance with manufacturer stipulations (e.g. use of a standard frame as a dirt bike, fitting double crown forks, extension of suspension travel, overstressing due to jumps etc.) and all defects due to normal wear and tear. The extended warranty does not apply to the Fritzz, Hanzz, Two15 model, all dirt bikes and carbon frames and all fitted components necessitated by a frame swap.

Is it possible to transfer guarantee to a second buyer?

The guarantee becomes null and void when the original buyer sells the bike.

What are parts subject to wear and tear and how long are they covered by guarantee?

C:68 Carbon Fiber Technology

CUBE’s highly innovative new C68 carbon fibre technology allows us to build better bikes than ever. Typically, carbon fibre frames are around 60% carbon fibre, with the rest being the resin that bonds the fibres together. By distributing carbon fibres evenly, we can make thinner layers within the frame and reduce the amount of resin. Those fibres are a mixture of Ultra High Modulus, High Modulus Spread Tow and Intermediate Modulus carbon, each chosen for the needs of the particular area of the frame. Nanoparticles within the resin itself allows it to be distributed more evenly when under pressure in the frame mould. The result is a range of frames with 68% carbon fibre – lower weight, higher stiffness, more fun.

In contrast to conventional brakes, the Direct Mount brake is fixed by two pivot points. Therefore the brake body is significantly closer to the frame and fork which increases the system’s rigidity and delivers much greater breaking force. In addition, the brake body can be easily separated and adjusted.

        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.

      • 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.

        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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Tapered Steerer
      • Image of CUBE technology Tapered Steerer
      • Tapered Steerer

        This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.

        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.
