ELITE C:68

SL

"super lightweight wheels – low overall weight – top-notch components"

test rating "very good"

Los colores CUBE Teamline son ya una clara advertencia a tus rivales en la línea de salida: esta bicicleta va a dar guerra. Partiendo de un cuadro fabricado con nuestro mejor carbono C:68, a continuación la equipamos con lo más selecto del mercado en cuanto a componentes. El grupo 1x12 SRAM XX1 Eagle proporciona una precisión de cambio y una potencia de frenada imbatibles, mientras que su horquilla RockShox SID RL permite un completo control de la conducción, incluso en los circuitos más complicados. Hemos seleccionado componentes de carbono Newmen para el puesto de mando, como el manillar y la potencia, y después hemos montado el ligero y resistente juego de ruedas ligeras DT Swiss 3.9, calzadas con neumáticas Schwalbe, para conseguir un agarre y una aceleración óptimos. ¿Preparado para pulverizar unos cuantos récords personales? La Elite C:68 SL sin duda lo está.

Detalles

El logro más destacado de la Elite C:68 SL es que combina una rigidez excepcional -para un pedaleo eficiente y una dirección precisa- con una ligereza y un confort sorprendentes. El secreto radica en la construcción de su vanguardista cuadro de carbono, con un diseño que incorpora las técnicas más avanzadas, incluida nuestra fibra de alta gama C:68 y nuestro innovador proceso de fabricación Advanced Twin Mold. Todo el equipamiento imprescindible está aquí: tubo de dirección cónico y cajas de rodamientos de carbono integradas, caja de pedalier PressFit, eje pasante de 12 mm y un cuidado cableado interno. Ah, ¿y esa comodidad? Se debe a su tija de 27,2 mm y al elaborado posicionamiento de la pinza de freno en las vainas, lo que ha permitido a nuestros diseñadores acomodar unos tirantes capaces de absorber las vibraciones. Nosotros nos ocupamos de las cosas complicadas, para que tú solo tengas que ocuparte de pedalear...

Highlight features

Horquilla de suspensión Rock Shox RS-1 Carbon

El nuevo amortiguador de aceleración combina unas extraordinarias prestaciones con un mínimo impacto y un bloqueo eficiente. Una horquilla invertida lo suficientemente ligera para carreras XC y lo suficientemente firme para carreras de trail.

Biela Sram XX1 Eagle

En la competición cuenta cada ventaja, por pequeña que sea. El juego de bielas XX1 Eagle™ es el más ligero, firme y estable del mercado. Su construcción hueca y la especial tecnología de laminado CARBON TUNED™ no solo ahorran peso; estas bielas son perfectas para exprimir cada gota de potencia en las carreras campo a través.

Casete Sram Eagle

Basta con echar un breve vistazo al nuevo casete X-DOME™ Eagle™: en la bicicleta de montaña, por fin se puede prescindir absolutamente del desviador. ¡Doce piñones de entre 10 y 50 dientes con una transición total del 500 por ciento!

Tecnología

  • Icon of CUBE technology Adaptable X12 Hanger

      • 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.

      • Advanced Twin Mold

        This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mold 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 Mold high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.

      • Agile Ride Geometry

        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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Integrated Post Mount

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Press Fit BB

      • 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.

  • 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.

        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.

      • C:68 Carbon Fiber Technology

        CUBE’s highly innovative new C:68 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.
