AXIAL WLS C:62

SL Disc

When you're fighting for your position at the head of the peloton, it's important that your bike is built from the best materials. This is, after all, the ultimate bike for everything from racing to long, fast days out in the saddle. The exclusive combination of unique carbon frame, CUBE carbon fork and full Shimano Ultegra group with disc brakes has resulted in an extremely fast and light race machine that'll provide maximum riding pleasure and performance, mile after mile.

AXIAL WLS C:62 SL Disc

Frame

Frame: This is pure, high-end carbon frame construction. Our Advanced Twin Mould Monocoque technology gives us full control over fibre lay-up - essential for building such a light yet stiff chassis. The oversized carbon tubes in the main frame and chainstays, tapered head tube, mega stiff bottom bracket and X12 axles front and rear are all instrumental in achieving a stiffness to weight ratio that's the envy of our competition. Controlled flex in the slim seat stays and flattened top tube add comfort to the frame, without compromising efficiency.

Components

Features: High performance with no compromise. The complete Shimano Ultegra group with compact 50/34 chainset reinforces the Axial WLS C:62 SL's serious intentions. It's backed up by the lightweight DT R32 Spline wheelset with Schwalbe Racing One Kevlar tyres and Shimano's BR-RS685 hydraulic disc brakes with heat-resistant Freezer technology. The cockpit features a CUBE Carbon Wing Race handlebar and stem, while the CUBE Performance Motion Post adds a dose of vibration-damping comfort.

Highlight features

DT Swiss Spline Wheelset

Stiffness translates into power. The Spline wheelset comes in the top quality you'd expect from DT Swiss. Through-axles both front and rear deliver added stiffness to the whole system so that every pedal stroke directly translates into forward motion.

Shimano Ultegra Crankset

Shimano's unique and distinctive four-arm construction is designed for maximum strength at high-stress points. The Ultegra crankset uses Hollowtech II technology which sets a new standard for stiffness and light weight.

Shimano Flat-Mount Disc brake

Great modulation and consistent braking power. The Shimano BR-RS805 is the ideal companion and offers all the advantages of a disc brake – for your road bike.

Selle Italia SC1 WLS Saddle

 The saddle is one of the three major contact points with the bike. The Selle Italia SC1 WLS is developed for road use, combining sporty looks with comfort.

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.

      • Integrated Cable Routing

        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.

        On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.

        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.

      • 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.

        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.

        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.

        Perfect aerodynamics and geometry adjustment characterize this package to the smallest detail the light and stiff Advanced Twin Mold carbon frame with horizontal dropouts is designed for the use of electronic circuit components to minimize air resistance. Battery and cable are hiding elegantly in the framework and also the brakes fit perfectly together with the Aerium Super HPC carbon fork.

        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.
