Cycling is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint... and the Kathmandu SL takes that a step further, with a front light featuring a housing that's compostable. It's a small thing, but it's our way of doing what we can. Shimano's XT components are easy to use and the last word in reliable performance. Combined with features like our sturdy, integrated luggage carrier and lightweight, comfortable RockShox suspension fork, the Kathmandu SL is the new gold standard for low-impact, low-carbon travel.
Frame and equipment
When curiosity takes you further afield you'll need a frame that's both strong and comfortable. By using double butted aluminium tubes, we've both reduced weight and improved ride quality - a double win. Efficient Comfort Geometry combines stable handling with day-long comfort to keep you pedalling. And internally routed cables keep your gear shifts smooth with reduced maintenance, while the Integrated Carrier blends its structure seamlessly into the frame's for superb strength and stability, with elegantly understated looks. We think we've thought of everything. Just don't forget your toothbrush...
For whom is the Cube Kathmandu SL suitable?
For the bike-tourist and the kilometre-eater. These high-end trekking bikes are designed in such a way that you can hardly notice any wear even after many kilometres. The complete package for all those who don't know when to get spare parts next time. Optimized by the high-quality components in weight and agility, these bikes underline their reputation as endurance runners, without looking old-fashioned or cumbersome. Long distances under the most adverse conditions are their field of application, which of course does not exclude the relaxed lap at the weekend.
