Details

It's hard to imagine a more beautiful rendition of state-of-the-art carbon technology than our Litening C:68 SLT. 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 Liteneing C:68 SLT's frame to a sensation new low AND to increase both stiffness and comfort. A contradiction in terms? Not at all - a massive down tube and very stiff bottom bracket area combined with 12mm through axles offer efficient power transfer, while a flattend top tube and slender seat stays improve comfort over long distances. We also added our C:68 carbon fork, whose slim legs allow precise steering through the tightest gap in the peloton whilst still offfering incredible vibration absorption.

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.

Technology

  • Icon of CUBE technology Adaptable X12 Hanger
      • Image 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Advanced Twin Mold

      • 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.

      • C:68 Carbon Fiber Technology

        CUBE?s highly innovative new C:68 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.

        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

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology X12 Through Axle

      • X12 Through Axle

        In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Zero
      • Image of CUBE technology Zero
      • Zero

        ZERO frames are our ultimate high end bikes. We eliminated any excessive weight, even going so far as to reducing the paint. The main frame, linkages and chain stays each consist of one single part. Maximum stiffness and the most modern building process deliver the best energy transfer. CUBE SHPC bikes are on top of a long intense evolutionary process.
