Frame variants

There are times when only the best will do. No matter whether your ambitions extend to crossing continents or just across town, the Travel Sport's combination of light weight and reliable, high end components will get you there in comfort and style. We took our nimble, lightweight touring frame and treated it to a full complement of Shimano's superb XT components, including powerful hydraulic disc brakes for reliable stopping in any weather conditions. With the assured durability and smooth performance of XT gears and brakes, the Travel Sport is a true thoroughbred amongst touring bikes.

Details

Simplicity can be a virtue, but we never forget that detail matters. That's why the aluminium Superlite frame of the Travel Sport is double butted, saving weight where possible but adding extra material where it's needed for strength. Combined with our rigorous in-house testing procedures, it's your guarantee of long-lasting durability and superb ride quality. We built in enough clearance to run tyres up to 37mm wide, giving loads of choice for added comfort and puncture resistance. Full low rider rack compatability means that the rigid aluminium fork is both accurate and extremely versatile, and we routed cables internally to match the frame's clean looks and reduce maintenance requirements. With double bottle cage mounts and a rear dropout that neatly accommodates a kickstand, the only thing left is to decide where your curiosity is going to take you...

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.

      • 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.
