axial wls GTC

Pro

The Axial WLS GTC is a fantastically high performance race machine designed for riders who demand the best, whether tackling longer distance sportives or a real road race. The high performance package of carbon frame, full Shimano 105 groupset and Fulcrum Racing 77 wheels guarantee the GTC Pro's rider countless fast, responsive road miles.

Frame

As the little brother of our range-topping road frame, the GTC carbon is packed with real high tech features. Oversized main frame tubes with extra large cross-sections in the head tube area maximise torsional rigidty and steering precision, while slim seat stays ensure that it remains comfortable. We can precisely control frame strength via the Twin Mould technique, optimising stiffness and compliance as needed. The geometry creates a stretched, high performance ride position for maximum efficiency and lively, exciting handling.

Components

This high end frame deserves something special. That's why we chose a full Shimano 105 groupset including compact crank (34x50), 11-32 comfort cassette and matching brakes, creating a performance gear and brake package with the best versatility. The Fulcrum Racing 77 wheelset offers superb acceleration and a very low weight. In order to ensure high steering precision with excellent vibration damping qualities, we opted for our CUBE CSL Race carbon fork. A Selle Italia X1 Lady saddle and ergonomic cockpit complete this women's race bike.

        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.

        Our new WLS models come with different wheel sizes for different frame heights. The 14 and 16" frames have 27.5" wheels, the 17,19 and 21" frames are built as 29ers. Depending on body height, every woman gets the perfect riding character and geometry. The models of our Woman Like Series feature a compact frame geometry with shorter top tubes and longer head tubes, giving a riding position that is more upright than on the men’s models. This riding position relieves the pelvis and offers more comfort. The top tubes of the WLS mountain bikes are lowered, making the bike more comfortable and safe to mount and dismount.

        In designing the GTC carbon fiber frames, safety and comfort are the main factors. We use high modulus fibers for the parts which are stressed the most – the head tube, the seat tube top and the bottom bracket area. That is why the frame still offers flex and comfort resulting from the flexible tubes. Our special production process with inner and outer molding forms ensure that the minimum of required material is used, reducing overall weight even with complex frame designs. All GTC frames have of course passed DIN -Plus testing.

        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.

      • 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.

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

        The Twin Mould technique uses re-usable cores during the lay-up process to ensure precision frame moulding. Special inserts guarantee optimum ply orientation during the production process to add extra strength at frame points subject to higher loads. This improves the safety of the product and delivers outstanding stiffness characteristics.
