Cube Elite C:68X SL 2020 Carbon Hardtail Mountain Bike Teamline Information

Season : 2020

Brand : Cube

Code : 317200

The Cube Elite C:68X SL is a lightweight XC hardtail, an efficient speed machine and a comfortable and agile marathon bike, all in a package with uncompromising high performance.

Short chain stays, Boost rear thru axle and a tapered head tube give impressively precise steering and excellent pedalling efficiency ensuring every watt of pedalling power you produce goes straight into propelling you forwards. It's crafted with Cube's premium C:68X carbon using Advanced Twin Mold technology which places precise inserts of carbon reinforcement to ensure extra strength at points of higher stress on the frame. The result is a frame that's an amazing 15% lighter than it's predecessor, with no compromises on safety or stiffness.
Internal cable routing gives your bike a super sleek look while ensuring your shifting is clean and crisp even in the worst riding conditions, while also adding life to your cables for less maintenance in the long run. The frame also has routing for a dropper post should you wish to upgrade in the future.
Newmen Evolution 29er carbon wheels with Schwalbe tyres are fast-rolling and superlight with excellent power transfer and strength as well as being tubeless ready, so you can quickly and cheaply convert your wheels to tubeless to enable you to run lower tyre pressures for more traction and stability on trail, as well as massively reducing your risk of a puncture ruining your ride.
The Fox Float SC Factory fork gives you superb control in the rough stuff, with a remote lockout lever on the handlebar so you can firm up your suspension when you hit the smoother tracks and fireroads. A Newmen cockpit with carbon handlebars, as well as a carbon seatpost and crank lower the weight further and give more efficiency, greater comfort and trail vibration dampening.
Your forks are Kashima coated, giving them increased durability and extreme resistance to wear and corrosion, even in salty gritty conditions. Kashima also reduces friction, meaning less heat build up and less need for servicing, as well as the glossy golden finish giving the bike incredible aesthetics too!
Shimano's 1x12 XTR drivetrain gives an unrivalled range of gears with reliable and slick shifting performance, so you'll never be struggling for a gear even when grinding up the steepest of gradients. Reach the top of the climb and fly back down the other side with confidence inspired by super powerful Shimano XTR hydraulic disc brakes.
