No compromise, no limits. Built from the ground up to be the best-performing, most aerodynamic time trial bike around, the Aerium C:68 sets new standards for wind-cheating efficiency and rider comfort. From food and water storage to brake integration, we've sweated the details so you can just pedal.
HYDRATION & STORAGE
Twin Head Tube
Low- / High Base Bar - Options
The low option (flat bar) is 400 mm wide and optimised for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
The sleek high option (riser bar) is 420 mm wide and 40 mm high, making reductions in aerodynamic drag possible that would otherwise require spacers.
4 arm aerodynamic development process
Redefining aerodynamic development in the cycling industry, this unique interconnected development process is designed to perfectly match reality, for delivering 'real world performance’ out on the road where in matters.
CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) More advanced than any other in the cycling industry. Using the latest CFD technologies from Formula 1, including real time ‘transient’ flow models of the complete bike and rider. Backed up with extensive wind tunnel correlation, Swiss Side’s CFD methods are second to none in terms of closeness to reality.
WIND TUNNEL Swiss Side’s wind tunnel testing methods are the most advanced in the cycling industry. Using unique systems such as steering torque measurement and rider laser positioning systems, the result is an unparalleled wind tunnel development capability.
INSTRUMENTED BIKE The most advanced on-bike aerodynamic measurement system ever seen. Using an array of sensors to measure aerodynamics out on the road and importantly, how the rider reacts, this unique system delivers 'real world data' about aerodynamic performance for BETTER UNDERSTANDING = BETTER PERFORMANCE.
PERFORMANCE SIMULATION Quantifying ‘real world performance’ to direct development where it matters. Swiss Side’s simulation tools allow the time won or lost to be calculated for any design or setup, over any course for any rider, in any conditions. Like this, performance can be quantified at any point during the development phase to make the best design decisions.
CUBE’s highly innovative new C68 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.
