A carbon fibre frame makes an irresistible entry to a new class of road riding. Twin Mold technology allows perfect control of the wall thickness and the amount of resin, especially on highly stressed areas of the frame. Oversized carbon tubes for the main frame and the chainstays deliver maximum stiffness and the best strength to weight ratio. The Gran Turismo Modular fibre Tech Monocoque carbon fibre frame comes in our RFR geometry with relaxed and comfortable riding position. A perfect package for riders keen on technology and performance with incredible low weight in this class. The ergonomic CUBE Wing Race bar offers different hand positions for relaxation on longer rides. The CUBE Performance post and thin seatstays flex for enhanced comfort.
Strengths: I bought this bike in 2011 and have covered over 20,000km on it. Equipped with 10sp Compact Ultegra, it is excellent for long distance trainings, not the lightest but very good comfort vs. stiffness.
Weaknesses: It came equipped with DT Swiss wheels which literally collapsed after 9,000 km. I replaced them with Mavics which are have run smoothly.
Really good bike and good value for money these days at around 1,500 euros. I paid more than 2,000 in 2011.
