Perfect comfort on long rides!
The CUBE Attain is an introduction to the world of silent freewheeling, competitive drafting... and speed. This bike combines proven technology with a compelling sense of being able to go further, higher and faster on challenging rides. With a superb 6061 T6 aluminium frame at its core, the Attain's geometry blends ergonomics and comfort in a way that sets a new standard.
The double butted aluminium frame delivers exceptional ride comfort, thanks to the vertical flex from its slim, cross-ovalised seat stays. The light, vibration-absorbing CUBE CSL Race carbon fork adds even more comfort, while the tapered headtube and mechanically shaped downtube work together to provide exceptional steering precision. That's important, because accurate control means the Attain is safe in any riding situation. Internal cable routing contributes to a clean appearance, and the frame has enough clearance for 25c tires - perfect for more comfort on long rides, or when road conditions are rough.
Versatility is king. That's why the Shimano Claris groupset gets a cassette with 12-32 teeth at the rear and a 50-34T chainset up front. It all adds up to a gear range suitable for anything from fast rides on the flat to epic days out in the mountains. Proven technology that combines functions in one lever means you can shift and brake like the pros. Side pull Claris Dual Pivot brakes scrub off speed safely, and CUBE have equipped the Attain with CUBE RA 0.8 Aero wheels shod with wide, comfortable 25 mm Continental Ultra Sport 2 tires.
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 Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
Advanced Mechanical Forming - With the Advanced Mechanical Forming technology CUBE can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by
functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable CUBE to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
Smooth Welded - This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
Frame Safe System - To protect CUBE´s high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Safe System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
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.
Wet Paint Surface - On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. CUBE use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
