You've put in the miles, and now it's time to test yourself against the competition. You'll be wanting the Reaction C:62 SL, in that case. Boasting the new RockShox SID Select fork and a light and stiff tubeless-ready Fulcrum Red 77 wheelset shod with grippy, Kevlar-bead Schwalbe tyres, it's the lightweight rocketship you've been looking for. Precise Sram 1x12 gears have the range for even the toughest of courses, and powerful Magura hydraulic disc brakes give you the edge you need to out-brake the competition. It looks fast, because it is.
Frame and equipment
Crafted from our proprietary C:62 carbon using our Advanced Twin Mold manufacturing process, the Reaction C:62 leaves nothing on the table in pursuit of low weight, exceptional speed and precise trail manners. A short rear end with Boost thru axle, tapered head tube and Agile Ride Geometry combine to create a lively, responsive ride feel. Slim seat stays and a narrow 27.2mm seatpost help ensure you'll stay comfortable for longer, even when you've giving it your all. And internal cable routing - including for a dropper post - reduces maintenance so that you can ride more often.
For whom is the Cube Reaction C:62 SL suitable?
For the fast trails, the sharp turns, the long tours, the Alpine crossings - in short: For all those who rely 100% on their bike. Despite the weight and stiffness optimizations, these mountain bikes are still sufficiently comfortable and make long tours possible. These complete packages offer little room for improvement and are reliable companions on all rides for years. Almost too bad for the after-work hours - but who knows, maybe you'll find another trail?
The advantages of 29 inch tires
29 inch is THE trend of the last few years, which was able to assert itself completely. Initially viewed critically by mountain bike purists and equipped with some teething troubles, the bike industry has recognized the trend and made it the new standard through continuous improvements. The advantage of the 29" tyres is the enormous running smoothness, which brings great advantages and saves power on long tours as well as uphill and downhill. Obstacles are easier to overcome due to the larger circumference of the wheels, and a greater distance is covered by turning the bottom bracket. By improvements and adjustments in the frame construction and the component selection, initial problems with the agility in the Trail and the optics of smaller frames were optimally balanced. Whether fully or hardtail, a 29 will take you far away.
