Description of CUBE ELITE C:68 SLT - 29" Carbon Mountainbike - 2019 - zeroblack

Exclusive and uncompromisingly speed machine!


Give CUBE's product designers the freedom to use only the very best materials and components, and this is the kind of thing they come up with. The Elite C:68 SLT is more than just a race bike; it's an exceptionally light, astonishingly stiff and incredibly rapid cross-country machine. For 2019 they've equipped it with Sram's standard-setting XX1 1x12 groupset with an all-new carbon crankset. From the Fox Float Factory Stepcast fork to the range-topping Newmen cockpit components, Cube simply picked the best of the best and left it at that. Even the DT Swiss wheelset is carbon, giving this ultralight race bike a uniquely high-tech appeal that translates, very simply, into blistering performance.

The latest carbon technology incorporated in Cube's Advanced Twin Mold monocoque production process - combined with the high end C:68 carbon - means that this state of the art frame is as light and stiff as possible, while also managing to remain surprisingly comfortable. Cube set it up with everything we could think of to leverage maximum speed. So there's a tapered head tube with carbon bearing shells, a PressFit bottom bracket and 12mm through axle at the rear for maximum steering precision and instant power transfer. The chainstay-mounted rear brake caliper allows the use of slender, vibration-absorbing seatstays - so you can stay comfortable and kepp the power down for longer. There's even provision to fit an internally routed dropper post, should you wish to upgrade in the future. Our engineers live by a simple motto: the devil really is in the detail.

  • C:68 Carbon Fiber Technology - CUBE’s highly innovative new C:68 carbon fibre technology allows us to build better bikes than ever. Typically, carbon fibre frames are around 60% carbon fibre, with the rest being the resin that bonds the fibres together. By distributing carbon fibres evenly, Cube can make thinner layers within the frame and reduce the amount of resin. Those fibres are a mixture of Ultra High Modulus, High Modulus Spread Tow and Intermediate Modulus carbon, each chosen for the needs of the particular area of the frame. Nanoparticles within the resin itself allows it to be distributed more evenly when under pressure in the frame mould. The result is a range of frames with 68% carbon fibre – lower weight, higher stiffness, more fun.
  • 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.
  • 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.
