2018 CUBE REACTION C:62 Race 29 - USD683.80
This performance hardtail exudes racing flair from every frame tube and each component - hence the "race" tag. And yes, it's as fast as it looks. With a redesigned frame for 2018 and a full selection of race-ready equipment, it's got everything that an aspiring racer could possibly need. A Fox 32 Rhythm fork with remote lockout, Shimano XT 2x11-speed transmission, XT disc brakes and Answer Atac AM wheelset shod with Schwalbe tires leave no room for doubt: this is a bike that will allow you to perform at your very best. Are you ready to ride flat out? Because the CUBE Reaction C:62 Race most definitely is...
CUBE's engineers never rest on their laurels. That's why they went right back to the drawing board for 2018's Reaction C:62 Race, taking everything they've learnt about high performance carbon frame construction and making it even better. Premium C:62 carbon results in an ever lighter frame, but CUBE didn't stop there. A shorter rear end with Boost through axle and revised Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) means it handles better than ever, and an integrated headset and PressFit bottom bracket help save even more grammes. Slim seatstays and a 27.2 mm seatpost help ensure you'll stay comfortable for longer, even when you're giving it your all. And internal cable routing keeps gear shifts clean and precise in even the worst riding conditions, as well as reducing the need for maintenance. CUBE also remembered to include cable routing for a dropper post, should you wish to upgrade in the future. CUBE sweated the details, so you can concentrate on the riding.
C:62 Carbon Fiber Technology - Frames that bear the C:62 logo, feature highly innovative developments from CUBE's HPC technology. Through ongoing optimization of the Advanced Twin Mold manufacturing process in which the overlaps of the layups were reduced, along with the development of carbon fiber technology, they created an extremely rigid lightweight frame with a 62% fiber content.
Advanced Twin Mold - This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mold technology, precise inserts are used to ensure extra strength at high-stress frame points. This combination offers maximum control over fibre orientations during the lay-up and production process. The Advanced Twin Mold high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.
