LITENING C:68

SLT Disc

When you unleash a team of enthusiastic engineers and ask them to develop the ultimate racing bike, the result is likely to be pretty special. Well, you're looking at it: our Litening C:68 SLT Disc. As much art as it is engineering, the SLT Disc combines the most advanced current carbon frame construction technologies with the world's most exclusive components to achieve our goal: the ultimate race bike. This is a two-wheeled machine that sets new standards in both looks and performance: for riders who demand only the very best.

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.

Highlight features

Electronic Dura Ace Di2 rear derailleur

All it takes is the quick push of a button to tell the highly precise and speedy servo actuator to change gears for you. Race-proven, the Shimano Dura Ace Di2 rear derailleur will shave precious seconds off your time to give you more than just a technological advantage.

Shimano Dura Ace Disc Brakes

These easily controlled, extremely reliable and lightweight Dura Ace disc brakes let you brake at the very last moment. This increases your average speed and saves you valuable seconds down the road.

Newmen Advanced SL R.25 Wheelset

The specially designed, v-shape rim flank of the Newmen Advanced SL R.25 gives the tire a rounder shape making it possible to take turns at higher speeds.

Syntace P6 Carbon Seatpost

The Syntace P6 Carbon RaceFlex seatpost provides increased shock absorption and more comfort when you hit quick bumps in the direction of travel.

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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

        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.

      • 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.
