The Cross Race SL is a wolf in sheep's clothing - subtly understated, but uncompromisingly rapid. For this thoroughbred racer we selected Shimano's gravel- and cyclocross-specific GRX 1x11 groupset. It's light, tough, precise and built for the demands of riding off-road. Powerful hydraulic GRX disc brakes, light and strong Fulcrum Racing 77 wheels and Schwalbe tyres designed to cut through, grip and shed mud in the filthiest of conditions round out the package. It's ready to race. Are you?
Frame and equipment
The Cross Race's brand new frame is a breed apart. Lighter than its predecessor, 12mm thru axles front and rear ensure that stiffness and steering precision are on the money for race-winning control. A full carbon fork helps filter high frequency buzz and vibration, making for a more comfortable ride. Internal cable routing ensures that your gear shifts remain clean and precise throughout the race, no matter how filthy the conditions. And we even fitted rack and mudguard mounting points, so your weekend racer can double up as a weekday commuter or tourer.
For whom is the Cube Cross Race SL suitable?
For racing cyclists who don't like to dismount. The cyclocross category is enjoying more and more fans in two ways. On the one hand, it is the sport itself, in which terrain has to be conquered with particularly robust racing bikes with studded tyres. On the other hand, more and more classic road cyclists are switching to these lightweight and powerful bikes. The considerably more robust versions are particularly suitable for use in wind and weather, in winter and for all those who do not want to descend at every obstacle.
