This performance hardtail exudes racing flair from every frame tube and each component - hence the "Race" tag. And yes, it's as fast as it looks. The Reaction GTC Race has everything that an aspiring racer could possibly need. The superb carbon frame, 2x11 transmission and RockShox Reba suspension fork in understated Fast Black all point in one direction: to the race course.

Components

Their engineers have given the Reaction GTC Race frame the perfect blend of low weight and high stiffness by using CUBE's complex GTC twin mould construction technique. Performance-enhancing highlights include the tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell, internal cable routing, X12 quick release axle and the Direct Mount derailleur hanger. The 27.2mm seatpost provides additional comfort on longer rides. But the real secret to this nimble, balanced and inspiring bike - whether you opt for the 27.5 or 29 inch version - is our Agile Ride Geometry.

Got your eye on the podium? A Shimano XT setup, including compact 26/36 chainset and powerful but sensitive hydraulic brakes, makes the Reaction GTC Race the perfect racing choice, whether you're taking on a short course XC race or an epic transalpine event.

Shimano XT BR-M8000
RockShox Reba RL

RockShox's Reba RL air suspension fork with remote lockout offers stacks of comfort and control, whilst a robust and lightweight Answer Attack AM wheelset with high quality Schwalbe tyres transmits your power with perfect efficiency to the trail.

Technology

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.
