CUBE SL Road Race iridium'n'green 2020
Meet the SL Road Race - a pared-down mile-muncher built for speed and simplicity. We've combined the best of our road racing and mountain bike technologies, resulting in sleek looks and low weight. A slick-shifting Shimano 105 2x11-speed transmission gives you the gear range you need in a lighter, easier-to-use format, while powerful hydraulic disc brakes put all-weather stopping ability at your fingertips and wide, grippy 40mm Schwalbe G-One Allround tyres ensure you're always in full control on even rougher roads. We've put just as much thought into the frame, which features double-butted aluminium tubes for a light, stiff but comfortable chassis that's passed all our stringent in-house testing with flying colours. Smooth Welding is as durable as it is sleek, and the carbon-bladed fork helps filter out high-frequency vibrations for even greater comfort. We even routed cables internally - neat, tidy and secure - for reduced maintenance and improved gear-shifting performance. Head out into the country or across town - either way, you'll want to be aboard the SL Road Race.
The SL Road's aluminium frame is made from extremely light double-butted tubes, giving the best combination of low weight, superb strength and great ride quality. The frame's inherent rigidity and low weight help convert energy at the pedals into efficient forward propulsion... which means speed! For the lightweight fork's design, we took our inspiration from our racing bikes. The æro shape is exceptionally stiff for accurate steering, and it even looks fast to match the bike's purity of purpose. We also routed the cables inside the down tube, adding to the bike's sleek looks and reducing wear and tear in the process - because you should be able to spend your time riding your bike, not maintaining it.
