The SLT sits at the top of the CUBE Reaction GTC series, so they gave it an extra treat: the revolutionary upside down RockShox RS-1 suspension fork. With a very high quality GTC carbon frame - available in both 27.5 and 29 inch options - and complete Shimano XT 2x11 transmission, the SLT is a versatile hardtail with inspiring performance that's equally at home on both trail and race course.

Components

The Reaction GTC twin mould 29er frame is right at the bleeding edge of technology. It incorporates every feature needed to improve steering accuracy and effciency without increasing weight: the tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell and X12 axles are obvious examples. Our Agile Ride Geometry blends sublimely efficient forward propulsion with wonderfully intuitive handling, which translates to easy riding fun whether you're on twisty singletrack or a race course. The slender 27.2mm diamater seatpost offers added comfort. Other notable features include the Direct Mount system for the derailleurs and clean, simple internal cable routing.

The innovative, 100mm travel RockShox RS-1 suspension fork with lockout has ushered in a new era of upside down forks, characterised by phenomenal steering precision and superb bump absorption.

And extremely light DT Swiss CSW MA system wheels shod with Racing Ralph and Rocket Ron add outstanding acceleration and peerless grip to the GTC SLT's total package.

The full 2x11 Shimano XT groupset guarantees powerful braking and perfect gear shifts, even in bad weather.

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.
