Frame: The Axial WLS Race features a superior double butted Superlite aluminium frame. Details like the oversized, cross-ovalised down tube, tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket and 3D forged dropouts all help provide the Axial WLS Race's frame with an exceptional weight/stiffness ratio. The Axial frame concept ensures superb long-distance comfort thanks to the balanced WLS ride position, supported by slim seat stays and the vibration-absorbing CUBE CL carbon fork. Naturally, we've routed all cables internally to ensure long-lasting gear shift performance and clean, tidy looks.
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.
