SL ROAD

SL

Higher, further, faster, more - the SL Road SL could have been built for Strave KOM-chasers or, indeed, anyone who enjoys chasing speed and distance. A featherweight, minimalist speed package combining Shimano's superb Ultegra groupset, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and DT-Swiss wheels, it's crying out to be ridden hard and is, in the right hands, nearly as quick as a real race bike.There's everything you need here for speed but, of course, we've kept an eye on comfort and safety too.

Details

The SL Road SL's aluminium frame has to fulfil three main criteria: it needs to be light, it needs to be stiff, and it needs to look good, too. You could call it a masterpiece... and we wouldn't disagree. Double butted tubes and a very accurate-steering and lightweight aluminium fork with carbon blades all contribute to keeping the weight down and the ride quality lively and precise. Cables are all routed internally to preserve the frame's good looks and the gears' shifting accuracy, and we've even remembered to include fixing points for accessories like mudguards and luggage carriers.

Highlight features

Shimano Ultegra Crankset

Shimano's unique and distinctive four-arm construction is designed for maximum strength at high-stress points. The Ultegra crankset uses Hollowtech II technology which sets a new standard for stiffness and light weight.

Shimano Ultegra Rear Derailleur

The Shimano Ultegra rear derailleur will find every gear smoothly, precisely and quickly.

Shimano Deore Disc Brake

Acceleration is key, but the appropriate amount deceleration is at least as important. Shimano’s Deore hydraulic disc brakes bite when you need them to, regardless of the weather.

CUBE Road Race Carbon Fork

It is the combination of aluminium and carbon that makes the CUBE Road Race rigid fork so light and stiff.

Technology

  • Icon of CUBE technology Advanced Mechanical Forming

      • Advanced Mechanical Forming

        With our Advanced Mechanical Forming technology we can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Aluminium Superlite
      • Image of CUBE technology Aluminium Superlite
      • Aluminium Superlite

        Extremely 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 double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.

      • Easy Mount Kickstand

        The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Integrated Cable Routing

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Smooth Welded

      • Smooth Welded

        This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
        weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
        to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.

  • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Wet Paint Surface
      • Image of CUBE technology Wet Paint Surface
      • Wet Paint Surface

        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.
