Cyclocross season is literally around the corner, and according to Cube, it’s all about the details.
When saving every gram is the goal, every single detail matters. CUBE knew that choosing premium C:62 carbon was a good start, but the Cross Race C:62 needed something special to set it apart. The answer came from an unusual direction: "our engineering team decided to route cables internally via the head tube, rather than the usual down tube routing" says Cube, "This approach fullfilled two goals; First, it created an incredibly clean look and eliminated any cable rub, and second, it meant we didn’t need to reinforce the down tube to the same extent, saving even more weight. For the Di2 cabling we use custom inserts, but they can be swapped if you decide in future to run a mechanical system". Combined with the full carbon fork and race-bred geometry designed for quick, nimble handling, the Cross Race C:62 is proof that the devil really is in the detail.
CUBE Cross Race C:62 SLT
You'll know when 'cross has taken hold of you, because you won't be able to wait for the weekend to come around again. The brand new Cross Race C:62 SLT was developed for cyclocross purists. Ultralight, perfectly formed and equipped with one goal in mind: to win. The new C:62 carbon frameset and carbon fork is paired with the best of everything, to give you that winning edge. From the Newmen carbon cockpit and carbon wheelset to Shimano's all new Ultegra Di2 transmission and hydraulic disc brakes, Cube gave their designers free-rein to indulge their perfectionist streak, so that you can indulge your winning streak. RRP £3,799.
CUBE Cross Race C:62 SL
The Cross Race C:62 SL features a brand new carbon chassis - complete with full carbon fork - and a component setup geared for hard use on the 'cross race circuit. Cube saved even more weight with a Newmen Advanced carbon cockpit, Newmen Evolution SL R.32 alloy disc wheelset and Easton EC90 superlight crankset. Then they specced SRAM's CX1 hydraulic disc brakes and Force 1 11-speed transmission, for the ultimate in stopping power and slick, simple gear shifting. It's a winning combination. RRP £2,499.
CUBE Cross Race C:62 PRO
The Cross Race C:62 Pro is a sleek, carbon-framed race bike designed to excel in the muddy hell of competitive 'cross. Begninning with an all-new chassis built from our premium C:62 carbon, and full carbon 'cross fork, a Mavic Aksium Allroad Disc wheelset shod with Schwalbe's X-One kevlar tyres, and Shimano's new Ultegra groupset with all new Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes. It's all designed to help you cut through both the mud and competition. If you're on a budget, don't get cross, get the Cross Race C:62 Pro instead, with a RRP £2,199.
