Cube unveil Elite XX1 29er

Cube have added another 29er to their 2013 range, with the Elite XX1 29 described by the German brand as a “superlight hardtail which is perfect for XC and marathon races”.

Cube Elite XX1 29erThe Super HPC carbon frame has gone on a diet, with excess resin material removed, and that makes for  a lightweight machine with an overall claimed weight of 9.1kg.

Cube say the Elite XX1 29 delivers the “optimum stiffness to weight ratio” thanks to a tapered headtube, oversized tube profiles and PressFit bottom bracket.

The Elite XX1 29 is, as the name suggests, equipped with SRAM’s new XX1 groupset, which has a 34-tooth single chainring working in partnership with a huge 10-42t cassette.

Otherwise the Elite XX1 29 is equipped with DT Swiss MA 2.0 29 wheels wrapped in Schwalbe Racing Ralph Kevlar 2.25 tyres, Formula R1R disc brakes, a RockShox SID RL 29 fork with 100mm of travel, a Syntace F109 stem and Selle Italia X1 saddle.

The Elite XX1 will retail for £3,499 when it becomes available in spring 2013.
