As the range-topper in the Limited Series, the LTD SL has the high quality aluminium frame and high end components that are bound to inspire looks of envy from your riding buddies. And, as you'd expect from such an uncompromising approach, it offers absolutely the best performance out on the trail.
The detail reads like a frame building wish-list: mechanically formed 6061 aluminium tubes, double butting, IS brake mount on the chainstay, internal cable routing, PressFit bottom bracket and a tapered head tube. Everything is there to ensure that not a single watt of power is wasted and that every steering input is transferred to the trail - and all this is achieved with incredibly low weight. We even took comfort into account and incorporated a 27.2mm seat post. The LTD SL can handle any trail and, thanks to Agile Ride Geometry, remains agile and lively whether your opt for the 27.5 or 29 inch option.
Is this a performance trail bike... or a race bike? The answer is simple: both. The extraordinary Fox 32 Float Performance suspension fork with 100mm travel is the perfect match for the frame's precise handling, delivering smooth, progressive trail-taming bump absorption and razor-sharp steering.
To meet the needs of the most demanding rider we specced Shimano's crisp-shifting XT drivetrain and brake groupset with 36x26T chainset. The XT ShadowPlus rear mech with Direct Mount attachment delivers near-instantaneous shifts, while Shimano's I-Spec mount system cleans up the rider cockpit.
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.
