Exclusive, high end carbon racer!
As you'd expect from its name, the Elite C:62 Pro is an exclusive, high end carbon racer with an extraordinarily light 29er frame capable of incredible acceleration. Combined with versatile, performance-orientated features including Shimano's 2x11-speed XT component group, the Elite C:62 Pro offers incredible performance and true race potential, without being too extreme to take on a long alpine ride.
The Elite C:62's carbon frame is constructed with advanced twin mold technology, giving CUBE´s engineers maximum control over the fibre lay-up. It's both stiff and extremely light, thanks to smart design features including an oversized, tapered head tube (with integrated carbon bearing shells), oversized PressFit bottom bracket shell and X12 dropouts. The CUBE Agile Ride Geometry gives the Elite Racer extraordinary levels of playful maneuverability and steering precision, making it surprisingly fun out on the trails. Internal cable routing tidies the lines up and keeps gear shifts precise for longer.
"High performance but versatile" was the design brief for this bike. The new-for-2017 Fox 32 Float Performance SC fork, light and strong Fulcrum Red 66 wheels and Shimano XT disc brake system are all standout features. XT gear components with wide ratio 11-42T cassette blend innovative technology with uncompromising reliability. Combined with the high quality XT chainset (26/36T), they provide this versatile 29er with the perfect gear range. Light cockpit components - including a CUBE carbon Flat Race Bar Pro - guarantee optimal ergonomics and perfect control.

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.
Agile Ride Geometry - CUBE ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in CUBE´s series of big wheel bikes. They also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let CUBE achieve the same trail as their 26" bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. CUBE invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tire clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least they kept the BB height the same as on their 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
Stealth Ready - Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them
optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look,
helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame if not required will be sealed with a cover for protection.
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.
Tapered Steerer - This steerer tube 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 head tube. 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 Post Mount - The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adapter aren't needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case CUBE save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.
Adaptable X12 Hanger - CUBE optimized their new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. CUBE can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
Press Fit BB - With Press Fit 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 them to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimeter of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
