TWO15

Race 27.5

Downhill racing continues to evolve... and so does our Two15 downhiller. Light, dynamic and a potent force on the downhill race circuit, our gravity bike's design builds on the success of its predecessors. Built around a 27.5 inch wheel but still delivering a full 215mm of travel at the rear, the Two15 Race has plenty in reserve for tackling even the most demanding of downhill trails. The Marzocchi Bomber 380 fork and Fox Van rear shock work together to provide the grip and control you'll need to tame any terrain at speed, while SRAM's 10 speed X9 components will help ensure you're always in the right gear. Magura MT5 brakes with a 200mm front rotor give all the stopping power you'll need, served up via a lightweight and tough Answer Atac DH wheelset shod with grippy Schwalbe Magic Mary tyres. Full bore, full control, and fully affordable: that's the Two15 Race.

Details

The Two15's embrace of 27.5 inch wheels means it's bang up to date and the ideal all-round downhill setup - fast-rolling, nimble and controllable. With practically bottomless travel and the sharp handling and superb responsiveness you'd expect from a CUBE full suspension bike, it's all you need to chase down a podium place. We've even kept the looks clean and elegant, with internal cable routing that'll help ensure perfect shifting even in the filthiest of riding conditions. The geometry is tailored to the specific demands of riding the gravity rollercoaster, with optimised chainstays - equipped with a 157mm X12 axle to provide accurate tracking and razor-sharp handling - and angles specially designed to keep you in control, no matter how rowdy things get.

Technology

  • Icon of CUBE technology Adaptable X12 Hanger

      • 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.

      • Advanced Hydroforming

        The new STEREO , FRITZZ and HANZZ models are built using Advanced Hydroforming. Conventional hydroforming processes cannot achieve these custom shapes and technical advantages. As this manufacturing method reduces the number of welds, the weight is reduced while durability is increased. All

      • Aluminium Ultralite

        Very high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are triple butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.

        Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. We researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every CUBE full-suspension model.

        The key requirement is for continuously active and fully usable travel, with the rear triangle unaffected by pedalling or especially braking forces. There are a number of ways of achieving this – CUBE favours a four bar design with a chainstay pivot. Here, one of the pivots is located between the dropout and the chainstay, ensuring that braking does not have a negative effect on the movement of the rear wheel. By carefully positioning the remaining pivots, we obtain the finest riding qualities for our full suspension bikes both uphill and downhill. This fact is proven by many top test results in leading magazines over the last few years.

  • Icon of CUBE technology High Performance Aluminium

      • High Performance Aluminium

        For our high end bikes we use High Performance 7005 Aluminium alloy which has a very low density combined with high strength due to the alloy elements and the hardening heat treatment. By triple butting or even quadruple butting (as in the REACTION , HANZZ and AERIUM models) to give different wall thicknesses in one tube, aluminium tubes are reinforced where required and made lighter where possible. In this way, we succeed in getting material where its needed most. In addition we use special tube shapes, manufactured with hydroforming technology to better cope with directional forces. The low density and high strength as well as the butting and the hydroforming technology enable us to make high performance frames with an ultimate level of stiffness.

        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 Integrated Post Mount
      • Image of CUBE technology Integrated Post Mount
      • Integrated Post Mount

        The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren’t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Press Fit BB
      • Image of CUBE technology Press Fit BB
      • 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

      • 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.

        The Trail Motion Rocker features optimized leverage ratios for every bike and intended use, giving fast reacting yet stable suspension in every situation. The computer-designed one piece rocker construction gives maximum stiffness for the best suspension performance while still being extremely lightweight.
