Cube: SL Road Pro
Keep it simple, but keep your options open too. The SL Road Pro’s combination of low weight and versatility makes it a force to be reckoned with on the city streets. Shimano’s 2×10 gears serve up an enormous range of ratios and clean shifting in a simple, light package. Tektro’s powerful flat mount hydraulic disc brakes ensure there’s always plenty of power on tap to stop safely, even if the weather isn’t cooperating. And the comfortable full carbon fork and easy accessory upgradeability seal the deal: this is an eminently adaptable bike.
A light frame helps make a fast bike, but it’s the details that really matter. That’s why, for the new SL Road frame, we didn’t just reduce the weight of its Superlite double-butted aluminum frame. We also fitted a full carbon fork – with mounting points for a lowrider rack – to help filter out road buzz. We added flat-mount disc attachment points, for sleek looks and the best braking performance. Mounting points for easy mudguard and carrier upgrades. And finished off with thru-axles front and rear, to ensure safe and predictable handling, laden or unladen.
