Cube AMS 100 C:68 RACE 29 blue carbon (2017)
Brand new for 2017, our top-flight cross-country race machine sets new standards for riders seeking the fastest, stiffest and lightest route to the podium. We’ve kept the super-effective four bar suspension design, but built an all-new chassis around our featherweight C:68 carbon technology. With Rock Shox and Shimano XT 2×11 components, the only thing missing is you.
Our new frame design had big boots to fill, but we raised the bar further with an aim to set a new benchmark for stiffness and weight. Luckily, our engineers relish a challenge. Using CUBE’s proprietary Advanced Twin Mold technology and C:68 carbon, they created a brand new frame which will redefine your expectations. The frame’s exceptional inherent stiffness is boosted with features like the tapered head tube and Boost148 rear end, while the sleek lines and stealth appearance are complemented by internal cable routing (and Di2 compatability) and concealed bolts and bearings.
Cube AMS 100 C:68 SL 29 teamline (2017)
When you’ve put in the miles, honed your training to perfection and marked off the race weekends in your calendar, you need a bike that’s up to the task. That’s where the CUBE AMS 100 C:68 SL 29 teamline comes in – designed to perform in the toughest of race conditions, so that you can realise your potential. Setting new standards for low weight and high stiffness, peerless components including Fox shocks and Shimano XTR gears and brakes mean you can concentrate on one thing: winning.
We’ve been making fast, agile four bar full suspension frames for over 14 years, but the new CUBE AMS 100’s goals of ultimate stiffness and lowest possible weight meant we had to right back to the drawing board. Our engineers used our best C:68 carbon and Twin Mold Technology to create a sleek, responsive and ultralight frame that sets new standards. Featuring Di2 compatibility, stiffness-enhancing Boost148 rear and tapered head tube plus a stealth approach to bolts and bearings, it’s in a class of its own.
Cube AMS 100 C:68 SLT 29 zeroblack (2017)
The best riders demand the best performance from their bikes. We created the CUBE AMS 100 C:68 SLT 29 with this in mind, blending our brand new cross-country race chassis with hand-picked components from Fox and Sram to create the ultimate trail-devouring machine. If there’s a faster, lighter, more efficient and more reliable cross-country race bike, we’d like to see it.
If it looks right, it often is right. Of course, there’s a lot more to designing the ultimate cross-country race chassis than that, but it’s a truth that holds for our designers. That’s why, for example, the seatstays blend seamlessly into the shock mount on this frame. It’s also the reason you won’t see any exposed bolts or bearings, and why we routed cables internally (including provision for Di2). As for the stuff you can’t see, it’s the high tech Advanced Twin Mold C:68 carbon you’d expect, crafted into a structure that sets new standards for low weight and high stiffness. Boost148? Check. Tapered head tube? Present and correct. We’ve sweated the details, so you can concentrate on the ride.
