CUBE and Intermarché-Circus-Wanty have been partners since 2015. The Belgian team reached #5 in the world ranking in 2022 and was victorious at some of the biggest races on the calendar – including Biniam Girmay’s historic stage win at the Giro d‘Italia. Starting from the 2023 season, the team has its own Continental development squad: Circus-ReUz-Technord. “CUBE sees this long-standing collaboration as testament to the strong partnership,” says CUBE's founder and owner, Marcus Pürner.
The long-standing partnership has also helped transform CUBE's portfolio. Extensive R&D carried out by CUBE at its in-house carbon lab goes into every UCI-accredited frame, with wind tunnel testing at each stage of design and production. CUBE's development process is built on long-term testing of a wide range of carbon fibres and layups to create products that include its proprietary one-piece integrated handlebar and stem. The invaluable and direct feedback from professional athletes is standard-setting in the development of all bikes for end customers. The Litening C:68X is CUBE's lightweight carbon-framed road bike constructed from premium C:68X material and built to offer maximum aerodynamic performance. The fully UCI-accredited Aerium TT incorporating sophisticated aerodynamic drag-reduction technology has been developed specifically for time-trial specialists. Further innovative projects are in the pipeline and will be added to the product line-up going forward.
