Elite C:62

Race 29

The Elite C:62 Race 1X is a high performance carbon racer that doesn't sacrifice versatility. Combined with the very light and efficient frame, the precise SRAM X01 1x11 transmission and smooth RockShox SID suspension fork make this hardtail the obvious choice for both XC and marathon races.

Frame

The Elite C:62's carbon frame is constructed with advanced twin mould technology, giving us maximum control over the fibre lay-up. It's both stiff and extremely light, thanks to smart design features including an oversized, tapered head tube (with integrated carbon bearing shells), oversized PressFit bottom bracket shell and X12 dropouts. Our Agile Ride Geometry gives the Elite Racer extraordinary levels of playful manoevrability and steering precision, making it surprisingly fun out on the trails. Internal cable routing tidies the lines up and keeps gear shifts precise for longer.

Components

High quality, high performance and maximum precision are the qualities that define this bike's features. The 100mm RockShox SID RL combines a handlebar lockout and 15mm quick release axle for maximum control. The fast-accelerating and durable Fulcrum Red 44 wheelset is perfect for racers, as is the Syntace/CUBE carbon cockpit setup. The legendary braking power and modulation of the XT hydraulic discs is even better in the newest BR M8000 version, and the 1x11 transmission with X01 chainset offers crisp, precise gear shifts. The tyre combination of Schwalbe Rocket Ron up front and Thunder Burt at the rear means easy rolling with maximum control.

        This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mould technology, precise inserts are used to ensure extra strength at high-stress frame points. This combination offers maximum control over fibre orientations during the lay-up and production process. The Advanced Twin Mould high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.

        We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.

        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.

      • Integrated Post Mount

        The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren’t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.

      • Press Fit BB

        With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.

        Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame – if not required – will be sealed with a cover for protection.

      • 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.

        In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.

      • Adaptable X12 Hanger

        We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
