SL Road

Race

Our SL Road Race is a fantastically fast hybrid. We've combined the best of racing and MTB technologies, resulting in sleek looks and light weight that's perfect for longer rides. The SL Road Race surges forward with every pedal stroke thanks to the Shimano 105 groupset's 22 gears - ideal for long, fast rides or even head-to-head urban racing.

Frame

A bike like this needs the right chassis. In the case of the SL Road Race that meant opting for double butted aluminium tubes, resulting in a frame that's not just light but also incredibly stiff. Our Smooth Welding process at the head and seat tube junctions is as durable as it is sleek. The 3D forged dropout is ready to accept our Easy Mount kickstand. The aero design fork - combining aluminium with carbon blades - blends perfectly into the bike's overall looks. Cables are all routed interallly - neat, tidy and secure - in the down tube.

Components

We gave the SL Road Race a full 22 gears from Shimano's legendary 105 groupset, but we didn't stop there. We also outfitted it with other high-tech kit like the BR-M355 hydraulic disc brakes, which always provide reliably powerful deceleration. Fulcrum's Racing Sport CX wheels are a highlight thanks to their low weight and extremely stiff design - and Schwalbe's Kojak tyres connect them securely to the road.

      • 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.

        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.

        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.

      • 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.

      • 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.
