TRAVEL

SL

Frame variants

The Travel SL is no ordinary sports tourer. A lightweight machine built around Shimano's low maintenance 8 speed hub gear and Gates' durable belt drive, it makes rattling gears, oily chains and regular maintenance distant memories rather than constant irritations. Wherever you're headed and whatever load you're carrying, the near-indestructible drive belt and smooth simplicity of the hub gears mean you can concentrate on the adventure, and stop worrying about the bike. With powerful hydraulic disc brakes, low rider front rack compatibility and a full complement of touring gear - including kickstand, lights and mudguards - it's the ideal lightweight, round-the-world companion.

Details

This classically elegant frame design features double butted aluminium tubes for the best combination of low weight, high strength and great ride quality. We've built in clearance for tyres up to 47x622, giving access to a wide range of options suitable for the toughest of touring routes. The Gates CDN drive belt is fitted and removed by opening the frames Split&Slide dropout, although its exceptional durability means that you're unlikely ever to have to do this. The precision welded Split&Slide system also allows belt tension to be quickly and easily adjusted with the help of two screws. Twin bottle cage mounts and a full complement of rack mounting options seal the deal.

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.

      • 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.

      • 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 Split&Slide Dropout

      • Split&Slide Dropout

        The SPLIT function allows the frame to open at the rear dropout to enable a drive belt to be mounted. The SLIDE function at the horizontal adjustable dropout allows wheel adjustment and chain/belt tension to be made easily without having to readjust the disc brakes. Adjustment screws avoid readjusting the wheel and ensure perfect function and durability.

      • 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.
