Teamline colours are fair warning to your competition on the start line that this bike means business. It's equipped with the best of the best: a cutting edge Elite C:68 frame, complete SRAM XX1 group and RockShox SID RL suspension fork. Better by far to race with the Elite C:68 SL 29 than against it. Bikes don't come any lighter or faster than this.
Frame: Maximum stiffness with a fantastically low frame weight, but still comfortable - that's the remarkable achievement of the new Elite C:68 frame. It's all down to its next generation carbon frame construction, with a fully revised design using the latest carbon technology and Advanced Twin Mould manufacturing. All the must-have features are here: tapered head tube with inegrated carbon bearing shells, PressFit bottom bracket shell, X-12 axle and internal cable routing. By positioning the rear disc brake mount on the chainstays we managed to scale down the seatstay diameter, increasing comfort without making any sacrifices to efficiency.
Cube sweated every detail to find the lightest and fastest components. The incredibly precise SRAM XX1 transmission is extremely light already, but speccing a RaceFace Next SL chainset allowed them to turn the performance all the way up to 11.
CSW 3.9 wheels with incredibly durable DT-Swiss hub technology are fast, light and strong. Lighty and powerful Magura MT8 brakes and an elegant Syntace Carbon cockpit round off this peerless race bike.
The RockShox SID has won countless World Cups, making a perfect fit for racing thanks to its class-leading steering precision and suspension performance.
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.
