Better tie your shoes a bit tighter when you climb aboard the LTD Race. It has one of the best aluminium frames ever developed by our engineers. Race-ready components like the Shimano SLX and XT 2x11 transmission, air suspension fork and hydraulic disc brakes clearly signal that the Limited Race sets new standards for an aluminium hardtail. It feels as good on the trail as it does on the race course.
The LTD Series frames are bang up to date. "Lighter, stronger, more efficient" is their motto - so the LTD Race has double butted 6061 aluminium tubing, an innovative IS brake mount on the chainstay, internal down tube cable routing, a PressFit bottom bracket and a tapered head tube. Fitting a 27.2mm diameter seat post increases rider comfort, while Agile Ride Geometry makes the LTD Race a balanced and agile trail companion, whether in 27.5 or 29 inch format.
The 2x11 Shimano drivetrain features XT derailleurs, XT shifters and a compact XT chainset, guaranteeing precise gear changes even under load.
They're brought to a halt by Shimano's peerless XT hydraulic disc brakes. Everything is colour-coordinated, and topped off with high quality aluminium CUBE finishing kit - so it looks as good as it rides.
Up front, a Rock Shox Recon Silver air suspension fork with 100mm travel offers maximum comfort and control in a tried, tested and proven package. Built by CUBE in our own factory, the wheels combine durable Shimano Deore Centerlock hubs with CUBE EX21 tubeless-ready rims.
Advanced Mechanical Forming
With their Advanced Mechanical Forming technology they can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable them to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
Easy Mount Kickstand
The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.
