Not all race bikes are created equal. The Litening C:68X SL's winning combination of low weight, long-haul comfort and wind-cheating ærodynamics give it an unfair - but UCI-legal - advantage. A Mavic Cosmic Carbon SLT wheelset blends wind-cheating design with light weight, while Shimano's unmatched DuraAce Di2 groupset puts a wide gear range and awesome stopping power at your fingertips. Carbon comfort, 30% reduced frame drag and fastidious attention to detail mean there's no better way to break free of the bunch...
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 SL 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.
