Cube Axial WLS Race (2016)




Description    The Axial WLS Race is the new spearhead among CUBE's performance aluminium race bikes - a lightning fast racer for demanding road enthusiasts. The high performance package of quality aluminium frame, full 2x11 transmission from the legendary Shimano 105 stable, and Mavic Aksium wheels all help make the WLS Race the ideal companion for bashing out fast road miles.
Frame    The Axial WLS Race features a superior double butted Superlite aluminium frame. Details like the oversized, cross-ovalised down tube, tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket and 3D forged dropouts all help provde the Axial WLS Race's frame with an exceptional weight/stiffness ratio. The Axial frame concept ensures superb long-distance comfort thanks to the balanced WLS ride position, supported by slim seat stays and the vibration-absorbing CUBE CSL carbon fork. Naturally, we've routed all cables internally to ensure long-lasting gear shift performance and clean, tidy looks.
Components     To complement the high quality frame, we kitted the WLS Race out with a Shimano 105 gear and brake groupset - ensuring the ultimate in versatility as well as the best possible gear and brake performance. Combining a 34x50 T compact chainset with an 11-32 comfort cassette gives the widest possible gear range to cope with any ride. Mavic Aksium Elite wheels are perfectly matched to the very light and durable Mavic Aksion tyres - a real, performance wheel system. The Selle Italia X1 Lady saddle and ergonomic CUBE cockpit complete this race bike built especially for women.
