This is their top women's aluminium hardtail, designed to tackle everything from enthusiastic trail riding to novice racing. They haven't just given the Access WLS an extraordinarily high quality aluminium frame; with high quality, enthusiast-orientated components like the 2x11 Shimano transmission, air suspension fork and hydraulic disc brakes, their Access WLS SL is also set up perfectly for life on the race circuit.
WLS series frames get all the features they can muster to make the double butted aluminium chassis even lighter, stiffer and more efficient. The 6061 aluminium tubes feature complex mechanical forming, while the bottom bracket uses the PressFit standard and there's a tapered head tube, too. They also incorporated the IS brake mount into the 3D forged dropouts, while internally routed cables give an exceptionally neat appearance and ensure long-lasting clean gear shifts. The 27.2mm seatpost contributes to greatly enhanced rider comfort and our Agile Ride Geometry with a shorter, lowered top tube makes the SL a balanced and agile companion for female riders out on the trail.
Shimano's SLX and XT 2x11 transmission components deliver exemplary shifting performance in all conditions - and, with a huge gear range at your fingertips, you'll always be in the right one.
They build the high quality wheels - with durable Shimano Deore hubs - in the CUBE factory. Braking is handled by Shimano's reliable BR-M315 disc system, while Schwalbe's Rapid Rob and Tough Tom tyres in 2.25in width keep everything under control.
Up front, the Rock Shox Recon Silver air suspension fork can easily be adjusted to the rider's weight and riding style, delivering perfect control and maximum comfort on even the wildest of rides.
6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant,high-elongation material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness.
