Cube has announced it has fully redesigned its brand new Litening C:68X series, with four box-fresh models to choose from.
The Bavarian bike manufacturer is raising the bar for aero road bikes, boasting a 30% drag reduction and integrated UCI-compliant chassis design in which the fork, stem, handlebars and seatpost are all integrated to be aerodynamic while delivering maximum stability.
More than a hundred hours of wind tunnel tests involving over 1,000 calculations and flow simulations were performed to hone the design’s aerodynamics.
The new model also features fully integrated cable routing and refined external mounted parts in a bid to reduce frontal area improve aerodynamics for savings of 30 watts over previous models.
State-of-the-art C:68X carbon fibre technology reduces the bike’s weight whilst remaining rigid, seeing more than 155 carbon layers laid up in precise orientations to add stiffness or compliance to specific frame sections. The frame itself weighs in at under 980g, and has plenty of mounting options for bottle cages, room for up to 28mm tyres and compatibility with all current power meter systems.
The Belgium Wanty-Gobert Cycling Team will be riding the new Litening models during this year’s Tour de France.
The Litening C:68X is available in four different versions (C:68X Race, C:68X SL, C:68X SLT & C:68X Pro) with pricing starting at £3,999, and can be pre-ordered now through OneWay Bike Industry BV.
