Cube Attain SL Disc Road BikeThe Attain SL Disc proves that hydraulic disc brakes belong on a race bike. The braking performance of Cube’s Attain SL Disc Road Bike is assured and matches both its cornering ability on narrow, tight turns and its climbing prowess on steep mountain passes. As you’d expect from a bike in the Attain series, the ergonomically balanced and comfortable ride position is the perfect setup for any adventure on the road Disc Brakes on a Comfortable Aluminium FrameCube’s engineers dug deep into their bag of tricks for this aluminium road bike frame. To improve rigidity, Cube treated the Attain SL Disc to X12 quick release skewers at the front and rear. Both the frame and the Cube CSL carbon fork have been specifically developed to work with disc brakes. For the frame material, Cube chose their formidable Superlite aluminium tubeset, joined with their bespoke Smooth Welding process and featuring internal cable routing for clean looks and minimal maintenance. The flip-flop adaptor means that either 140mm or 160mm discs can be used on the front wheel. If you want to use the Attain SL Disc as your winter bike, you now have the option of mounting mudguards to keep the spray off Shimano 105 GroupsetThe Attain SL Disc features a whole range of technical highlights. Shimano’s proven 105 groupset delivers the shifting performance you’ve come to expect from a 2×11 format. The compact chainset with 50-34T chainrings drives an 11-32T cassette for an unmatched gear range whilst Shimano’s BR-RS505 disc brakes with 160mm rotors front and rear bring it all to a halt, whatever the road conditions. Cube opted for the superb Mavic Aksium Disc wheelset, finishing with Continental’s grippy Grand Sport Race SL tyres Features:Frame: Aluminium 6061 T6 Superlite, Double Butted, Smooth Welded, 3D Flat Mount Disc Brake Dropouts, Road Comfort Geometry, X12Fork: Cube CSL Race Disc, One Piece 3D-Forged Steerer/Crown, Carbon Blades, 1-1/8″ – 1-1/4″, Flat Mount, 100mm X12Bottom Bracket: PressFitBrake System: Shimano BR-RS505, hydraulic disc brake, flat mount (160/160)Cassette: Shimano 105 CS-5800, 11-32TChain: Shimano CN-HG600-11Crankset: Shimano 105 FC-5800, 50x34THeadset: FSA Z-t, top zero-stack 1-1/8″ (OD 44mm), bottom integrated 1-1/4″Front Derailleur: Shimano 105 FD-5800, 31 8mm clampRear Derailleur: Shimano 105 RD-5800GS, 11-speedWheelset: Mavic Aksium Disc, 100x12mm /142x12mm, 6-boltTyres: Continental Grand Sport Race SL, 25-622Handlebar: Cube Wing Race Compact BarHandlebar Tape: Cube Grip ControlStem: Cube Performance Stem Pro, 31 8mmSaddle: Cube RP 1.0Shift/Brake Levers: Shimano ST-RS505Seatpost: Cube Performance Post, 27 2mmPost Clamp: Cube Screwlock, 31 8mmWeight: 9.45kgTechnologies: Aluminium Superlite: Extremely high-tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant, and has high elongation. Cube’s Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness. Smooth Welding: This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: improves the firmness of the weld seams and minimises the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow; and, helps the frame form a better and more organic look due to the smooth and barely noticeable welds. 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 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.
