Cube Attain GTC Pro Disc Road BikeCube’s Attain GTC Pro Disc is an aesthetic yet functional masterpiece. This high-end race bike combines the comfort and performance of a high-tech carbon frame with the latest brake technology. Genuine long-distance ability, superb efficiency, and unbelievable comfort are all in the Attain GTC Pro Disc’s genes Lightweight and Stiff Carbon Road BikeOptimising a frame for disc brakes is both art and science – and as part of the process, Cube chose an X12 axle system both front and rear to improve rigidity. The forces involved also necessitate a specially designed fork, which together with the Attain GTC Pro Disc’s tapered headtube, creates an enormously stiff structure without sacrificing comfort Internally Routed Cables and Mudguard CompatibilityThis way, the rider benefits from a smooth ride and precise steering on even the longest descents. Internally routed cables give this race machine a clean appearance – a true Gran Turismo. Full mudguards are an easy addition, if the need arises. This option was included because Cube understands that even hardened racers like to stay dry on long training rides in poor weather Shimano 105 Groupset with Comfortable, Stylish Finishing KitShimano’s benchmark 105 groupset features a wide-ranging 2×11 gear setup. The compact chainset, with its 50- and 34-tooth chainrings, is exactly what’s needed on a race bike geared for performance. The cassette ranges from 11-32 teeth, giving the Attain GTC Pro Disc incredible climbing performance on even the steepest grades and a high enough gear to keep pedalling on the fastest descent. For scrubbing off speed, Shimano’s superb BR-RS505 hydraulic disc brakes work reliably, even in wet conditions.

Special inserts guarantee optimum ply orientation during the production process to add extra strength at frame points subject to higher loads. This improves the safety of the product and delivers outstanding stiffness characteristics. PressFit BB: With PressFit 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 Cube to build a wider downtube and more broadly spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness. Tapered Headtube: This headtube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the headtube. On all of Cube’s carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct 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 Adaptable X12 Hanger: Cube has optimised their new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved, with this new design it’s also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out X12 Through-Axle: In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive: All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes. All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes. All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX Buy Cube Bikes from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
