Cube Access WLS Race Ladies’ Hardtail BikeCube’s Access WLS Race Hardtail Bike has been designed with geometry and components that perfectly fit the female anatomy and with premium components such as 3×10 gears and a simple to adjust air sprung suspension fork, this bike is ideal for enthusiastic women riders ready to explore new limits Enjoyable & Reassuringly SteadyThe 6061 aluminium frame of the Access Race provides all kinds of enhancement. For starters, the frame itself is very light, yet rigid thanks to Cube’s mechanical forming process, and features such as internally routed cables and smartly integrated disc mount in-between the chainstays and seat add something a bit special. The 27 2mm slimline seatpost offers an extra measure of comfort to the frame while the AGR (Agile Ride Geometry) includes a short and lowered top tube which gives this bike a sprightly, enjoyable and reassuringly steady ride quality Stress-Free & Relaxing In addition to the consistency and flexibility of Shimano’s Deore/XT 3×10 gears and compact chainset, one of Cube’s key priorities was ensuring the best possible fit and comfort. The Cube cockpit with rise Trail bar and women-specific WLS saddle conquered that, giving you a stress-free and relaxing ride as well as complete control, even on those long rides. Suntour’s XCR 32 fitted suspension fork with remote lockout can be set up quickly and simply for each individual’s weight and riding style, while Shimano’s BR-M315 hydraulic disc brakes consistently bring you to a stop, regardless of weather conditions Features:Frame: Aluminium Lite, AMF, internal cable routing, easy mount kickstand readyFork: SR Suntour XCR32 air RL disc 100mm, remote lockoutHeadset: FSA No 10, semi-integratedStem: Cube performance Pro, 31 8mmHandlebar: Cube rise Trail bar, 680mmGrips: Cube performanceRear Derailleur: Shimano XT RD-M781-DSGSL, shadow, direct mount, 10-speedFront Derailleur: Shimano Deore FD-M611 downswing, 31,8mmShifters: Shimano Deore SL-M610, Rapidfire-PlusBrake System: Shimano BR-M315, hydraulic disc brake (180/160)Crankset: Shimano FC-MT500-3, 10-speed, 40x30x22T, 170mmCassette: Shimano CS-HG50, 11-36TChain: Shimano CN-HG54Rims: Cube ZX 20, discFront Hub: Shimano HB-M3050Rear Hub: Shimano FH-M3050Tyres: Schwalbe Smart Sam, active, 2.25″Pedals: Cube aluminium MTBSaddle: Cube WLS active 1.1Seatpost: Cube performance, 27 2mmSeat Clamp: Cube Varioclose, 31 8mmWeight: 13 3kgTechnologiesAgile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let them achieve the same trail as their 26″ bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. They invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size Last but not least, they kept the BB height the same as on their 26″ bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position Aluminium Lite: 6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant, high-elongation material suitable for light tube sets with high stiffness Easy Mount Kick Stand: This 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 Frame Safe System: To protect the high-end frames from damage, they are built with the Cube Frame Safe System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In the case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced with a new one Integrated Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. Cube uses this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight Woman Like Series: WLS models come with different wheel sizes for different frame heights. Depending on body height, every woman gets the perfect riding character and geometry. The models of our Woman Like Series features compact frame geometry with shorter top tubes and longer head tubes, giving a riding position that is more upright than on the men’s models. This riding position relieves the pelvis and offers more comfort. The top tubes of the WLS mountain bikes are lowered, making the bike more comfortable and safe to mount and dismount Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping.
