TRAVEL

Frame variants

With the CUBE Travel, you can buy the adventure with the bike. We've given our master of versatility a lightweight, comfortable frame based around 29er wheels, whilst keeping everything that made earlier versions of this touring bike so popular. For 2018, we've even added a neatly integrated luggage carrier for neater looks and more secure load carrying. The result? It'll probably surprise you. It'll make the trip to the coffee shop more fun and allow you to take on more adventurous long rides at the weekend. Comfort and safety were near the top of the list when we developed this bike and, in order to maximise the fun factor, we built in plenty of frame clearance to handle extra wide tyres. The Travel is your gateway to cycling freedom...

Details

We used a compact geometry for this light, stiff aluminum frame, selecting double butted tubes for their weight saving and superb strength. The result is a lively and efficient ride position that'll translate your pedalling into almost effortless forward progress. State of the art technology includes a tapered head tube for improved steering precision, and we used our Smooth Welding process throughout for a clean, organic look to the frame tubes. New for 2018, we've incorporated our semi-integrated luggage carrier. It complements the Travel's clean leans and provides super stable load carrying ability for whatever you need to bring along with you. We've not forgotten the details, either - you'll find an CUBE kickstand and a complete set of bottle cage bosses. And, of course, the Travel has passed all our stringent safety tests.

Technology

      • 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

  • Icon 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

        CUBE Bikes with this labelling fulfill all legal requirements and meet all safety demands according to the StVZO German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations. Lighting systems and reflectors mounted are tested and certified accordingly. These bikes take into account every security-related detail to guarantee safe and relaxed mobility in traffic.

      • 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.
