Cube Attain Disc Road Bicycle

The Cube Attain is a masterpiece of both æsthetics and function. This high performance race bike combines the sublime comfort and superb acceleration of a high tech carbon frame with the safety of the latest disc brake technology.

Oprimised Carbon Frame

Optimising a frame for disc brakes is both art and science. As part of the process we chose a 12mm axle system both front and rear to improve rigidity.

The forces involved also necessitate a specially designed fork which, together with the Attain GTC SL Disc’s tapered head tube, creates an enormously stiff and precise structure.

But we’ve not forgotten comfort, which is just as important for sustained performance. The fork’s carbon blades work together with slender Flex Stays at the rear to help filter out energy-sapping road shock, reducing fatigue even on long rides and bad road surfaces.

The ultimate high speed endurance machine? We like to think so.

Shimano’s peerless Ultegra gears, compact and elegant brand new Shimano 105 disc brakes and a Fulcrum Racing 66 wheelset blend with the taut, elegant but surprisingly comfortable carbon frame to make a genuine long-distance mile-muncher.

Efficiency, comfort and performance: it’s all in the Attain GTC SL Disc’s genes.

Cube Agree Road Disc Bicycle

The Cube Agree Road Disc bicycle, is a popular choice for our customers in Essex and Suffolk. It’s an uncompromisingly light, stiff and surprisingly comfortable endurance race bike that will allow any rider to push their limits or enjoy a long day in the saddle.

The bicycle is built on the light, stiff, comfortable and ærodynamic Agree C:62 carbon chassis and fork – for excellent handling, explosive acceleration and mile-munching comfort.

There is a full complement of Newmen components and wheels, so you’ll always be in complete control. And Shimano Ultegra Di2 disc components give you slick shifting and ultimate stopping power.

The centrepiece of the Agree C:62 SLT is one of the most advanced disc-compatible carbon race frames available.

The centrepiece of the Agree C:62 SLT is one of the most advanced disc-compatible carbon race frames available. Our engineers pulled out all the stops to make this chassis nimble, comfortable, efficient and ærodynamic – all at the same time.
Impossible? Not when you know how.

The front and rear wheels feature 12mm thru-axles for improved stiffness, while the complex profiled down tube and chainstays build into an incredibly efficient structure. Slender seatstays and the carbon fork blades combine with a narrow diameter seatpost for surprising comfort, while the integrated seat clamp is just one of the small touches that helps improve ærodynamics.

The tapered head tube and PressFit bottom bracket improve steering precision and pedalling efficiency, and the internally routed cables keep everything neat and tidy. The looks may be understated… the performance is anything but.

Our verdict:

Cube’s attention to detail and extensive in-house testing has given the Agree an exceptional ride quality.
