Here at CUBE, we never rest on our laurels, and the all-new Litening C:68X Race is proof of that. Completely redesigned from the ground up, it represents our bid to redefine what's possible from a race bike. Knowing that at speeds above around 15km/h aero efficiency is more important than weight, and building on the knowledge we'd gained from building our world-beating Aerium bikes, we set out to create a frame that's not just efficient...but aero-efficient.
Sophisticated Computer Fluid Dynamics analysis, backed up by extensive wind tunnel testing, allowed our engineers to optimize every single part of the frame to make it as slippery as possible through the air. Our premium, next-generation C:68X carbon gave them the freedom to sculpt, shape, and refine their designs until they were completely happy with the performance. And the result? A seamless structure that integrates the chassis, fork, stem, bar, and seat post into a frame that's reduced drag by 30%. Make no mistake, this is game-changing territory. Less drafting, more riding at the front—with power to spare to break away. Fully UCI-compliant, we sweated every detail to help you focus on your performance. The low cross-wind effect, integrated headset, clearance for 28mm tires and lighter head tube and fork crown are all there to ensure you go faster. With SRAM's wireless Force AXS 2x12 drivetrain, Newmen carbon wheelset and Schwalbe's tubeless-compatible tires, there's nothing to hold you back.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are the highlights of today’s electronic shifting systems:
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servomotors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with precisely and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you’ll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
