The CUBE Attain GTC Race is, even if they do say so ourselves, a masterpiece of both æsthetics and function. This high performance race bike combines the sublime comfort and superb acceleration of a high tech carbon frame with the safety of the latest disc brake technology. Shimano's peerless new Ultegra gears, compact and elegant disc brakes and a Mavic Aksium Disc wheelset blend with the taut, elegant but surprisingly comfortable carbon frame to make a genuine long-distance mile-muncher. Efficiency, comfort and performance: it's all in the Attain GTC Race's genes.
Optimising a frame for disc brakes is both art and science. As part of the process they chose an X12 axle system both front and rear to improve rigidity. The forces involved also necessitate a specially designed fork which, together with the Attain GTC Race's tapered head tube, creates an enormously stiff and precise structure without sacrificing comfort. This way, the rider benefits from a smooth ride and accurate steering on even the longest descents. Internally routed cables match the frame's Gran Turismo-inspired sleek looks, as well as minimising maintenance. Full length mudguards are an easy addition, if the need arises - an option that they built in because they know that even hardened racers like to stay dry on long training rides in poor weather.
