There's nothing quite like a lightweight hardtail for marathon racing. And there's no marathon race hardtail quite like the brand new Elite. Combining inspirational low weight with efficient rigidity and surprising comfort and resilience, it's the standard by which all other marathon race hardtails are judged.

Cube’s brand-new Elite C:68X Race is many things. An uncompromisingly high-performance carbon speed machine? Certainly. A cross-country hardtail built with an eye on weight reduction? Definitely. A marathon-specific bike designed to be comfortable and agile over longer distances? Yes, that too. Given the chance to build a brand-new frame crafted from our next generation C:68X carbon, Cube’s engineers took the opportunity to refine what was already a widely admired cross-country thoroughbred. The result is a chassis that's 15% lighter than the one it replaces, but every bit as efficient at translating rider effort into rapid forward progress. The tapered head tube, Boost 148 rear end and carefully profiled down tube ensure incredible pedalling efficiency, while slender seat stays and a narrow 27.2mm seat post add noticeable rider comfort to the mix. Cube have tweaked the Agile Ride Geometry, too, with a slightly slacker head angle for more relaxed handling. With Sram's 1x12 X01 Eagle transmission and Level Ultimate hydraulic disc brakes, it's ready for the start line. Newmen wheels and fast-rolling Schwalbe tyres hook up well on a range of trail surfaces, while RockShox's iconic SID Ultimate fork takes care of keeping the front wheel planted and pointed in the right direction. It's all you need for a day's racing... or simply a day out in the hills, riding hard and fast.

If there's one thing Cube’s engineers have learnt over the years, it's that you can always squeeze a bit more performance out of a frame. That's why they went back to the drawing board with the Elite. It was already stiff, light, comfortable and agile - but the new one is 15% lighter, designed with even greater comfort in mind, and features revised Agile Ride Geometry designed with marathon riding and endurance cross-country in mind. It's all possible thanks to the combination of Cube’s high-end C:68X carbon and Advanced Twin Mould manufacturing technology, which gives their engineers the ability to add or remove precise quantities of carbon to create the perfect blend of characteristics. Slender seat stays help absorb trail vibration for greater comfort over long distances, while the tapered head tube and Boost axle at the rear help maintain precise steering and incredible pedalling efficiency. There's even provision to upgrade to an internally routed dropper post. Better than before? Definitely. The best out there? Well, Cube think so. But they’ll let you be the judge...

Classification:
Category: 3 - Meant for riding on ways like:

  • Tarmac roads and bicycle routes
  • Ways paved by gravel, sand or similar materials (e.g.  re road, dirt road)
  • Paved and non paved hiking trails where roots, thresholds, rocks and drops are more often
  • In doing so the wheels have constant contact to the ground or lose contact for a split of a moment due to small uneven terrain like roots (-> no jumps, no riding on one wheel neither front or rear, no braking that causes the rear wheel to lift up)
  • Important: Please note that when using kickstands, mudguards, luggage carriers, as well as bicycle trailers the application area of the model always changes to classification category 2.

Category 2 - Meant for rides on paved ways like:

  • Tarmac roads and bicycle routes
  • Ways paved by gravel, sand or similar materials (e.g.  re road, dirt road)
  • Paved hiking trails with only few roots, thresholds, rocks and drops
  • In doing so the wheels have constant contact to the ground or lose contact for a split of a moment due to small asperities like roots (-> no jumps, no riding on one wheel neither front nor rear, no braking that causes a lift up of the rear wheel).
