Cross-country and marathon racers are in for a treat with the Elite C:68 Race. They've taken their high end C:68 carbon frame and paired it with Shimano's standard-setting 2x11 XTR transmission and Fox's new 32 Float Performance SC suspension fork. It's a combination that promises every racer the ultimate riding experience.
The Elite C:68 chassis represents carbon frame construction perfection. The basics include weight under 1000g, huge stiffness with superb comfort thanks to an advanced twin mould monocoque construction method, and advanced design features including a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell, X12 HR axles and internal cable routing. Incorporating the rear disc mount in the chainstay enables us to spec slender seatstays for extra comfort, backed up by the 27.2mm diameter seat post. The frame can also features internal cable routing for a stealth dropper post, while our Agile Ride Geometry displays the manoeuvrability and precision handling you'd expect from CUBE.
The XTR 2x11 gear system is the perfect tool for transmitting the rider's power to the trail: responsive, precise and ultra-reliable. An 11-40 cassette and stiff and light double chainset (26/36) with side swing front mech combine to offer optimal gear shift performance.
And it's all glued to the trail with Fox's superb new 32 Float Performance SC fork.
The XTR XC brakes make use of magnesium and carbon to reduce weight, without sacrificing performance or control. Super light CSW MA 3.9 Straightpull system wheels with high grade hub technology from DT-Swiss back up the transmission's performance with superb acceleration.
Press Fit BB
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.
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.
