Every fraction of a second counts. That's why, with the Litening C:68X Race, we've built a UCI-compliant race bike around a frame that's reduced drag by 30%. The Newmen Advanced wheelset features a new, road-specific hub that's designed to be as slim and æro as possible. Sram's superb Force AXS wireless transmission includes a wide-range rear mech capable of handling a 10-36 tooth cassette, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes put you in full control. It's fast. Are you up for it?
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 Race 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.
