The best riders demand the best performance from their bikes. Cube created the CUBE AMS 100 C:68 SLT 29 with this in mind, blending their brand new cross-country race chassis with hand-picked components from Fox and Sram to create the ultimate trail-devouring machine. If there's a faster, lighter, more efficient and more reliable cross-country race bike, we'd like to see it.
If it looks right, it often is right. Of course, there's a lot more to designing the ultimate cross-country race chassis than that, but it's a truth that holds for our designers. That's why, for example, the seatstays blend seamlessly into the shock mount on this frame. It's also the reason you won't see any exposed bolts or bearings, and why they routed cables internally (including provision for Di2). As for the stuff you can't see, it's the high tech Advanced Twin Mold C:68 carbon you'd expect, crafted into a structure that sets new standards for low weight and high stiffness. Boost148? Check. Tapered head tube? Present and correct. They've sweated the details, so you can concentrate on the ride.
Cross-country afficionados know that good traction is the key to maintaining speed and control. We started with light, comfortable and tenaciously grippy Rocket Ron and Thunder Burt tyres
A Newmen Advanced/Evolution SL carbon cockpit shaves vital grammes, and they finished with Sram's built-for-racing XX1 transmission and Level Ultimate brakes. It's an uncompromising setup that means you'll be able to make the most of every turn of the pedals... towards the podium.
Then put Fox's range-topping Float DPS Factory Remote shock and 32 Float Factory SC Remote fork between wheels and frame. It's a combination that means you'll always be in control, even as you're reeling in the competition.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
Cube optimized their new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. They 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.
C:68 Carbon Fiber Technology
CUBEs highly innovative new C:68 carbon fibre technology allows them 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, they 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.
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.
