A race bike can be UCI-compliant, comfortable, light and very, very slippery through the air too. The Litening C:68X Pro is proof. With its Computer Fluid Dynamics-designed chassis, æro-section Newmen Evolution wheelset and sleekly integrated Shimano Ultegra Di2 gears, you'll not find a more ærodynamically efficient bike in the peloton. A Comfort Flex seatpost and wider tyres keep things comfortable for the long haul. And powerful Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes ensure you can chase seconds on the descents, too.
Frame and equipment
Rules are rules, and a race bike needs to conform to them in order to qualify for UCI-sanctioned races. But making a bike significantly more slippery through the air, within the rules? That's legit. The Litening C:68X's lightweight carbon chassis - built with our premium C:68X material - was designed with the help of extensive use of Computer Fluid Dynamics and real-world wind tunnel testing. The result is a 30% reduction in drag, in a fully UCI-compliant frame that elegantly integrates frame, fork, stem, handlebar and seatpost. It's also light and comfortable, power meter-ready and has clearance for tyres up to 28mm. But most of all, it's very, very fast.
For whom is the Cube Litening C:68X Pro suitable?
For the ambitious racer. Bikes from this category are a serious competition and regularly find themselves on the podium. The large selection of equipment variants, geometries and frame concepts serve every need, from the comfort-oriented touring cyclist to the dogged competitor. The light and extremely rigid frames transport every milli-watt of power directly into the bottom bracket and ensure uncompromising feed. The high-quality components ensure low-maintenance fun for everyone and women.
