Cube Litening C:62 Pro Frame blacklineWith the Cube Litening C:62 Pro frame our goal was simple: to develop an affordable, state-of-the-art race bike capable of taking the fight to the head of the peloton.
Pure, unadulterated carbon frame construction: Cube Litening C:62 Pro Frame in blacklinePure, unadulterated carbon frame construction. The use of our Advanced Twin Mould technique, monocoque construction and superior carbon fibre gives us maximum control over the fibre lay-up - and that enables us to build a frame that's as light as it is stiff. Oversized carbon tubes in the main frame and chainstays, a tapered head tube and super stiff bottom bracket area all ensure an excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio for the best possible power transfer. Slim seat stays and a flattened top tube are designed to introduce a degree of controlled flex, adding comfort to the ride experience without sacrificing performance.

TechnologiesC:62 Carbon Technology
The unusually high carbon content is achieved during production by using three perfectly integrated techniques. Advanced Twin Mold: We minimise imprecise overlaps by accurately fitting individual carbon layers’ overlap regions during the monocoque building process. The result is a frame with no superfluous weight – every gramme counts. We also use a solid core in the centre of the frame during the manufacturing process, which is removed when the frame is finished. This reduces the buildup of folded material and increases the safety and integrity of our lightest frames.
Special carbon fibre material choice: An extraordinary combination of materials is needed to make the best quality carbon. By using High Modulus fibres, we’ve made the C:62 frame extremely stiff. Finely dispersed nanoparticles are integrated in the resin that bonds the two carbon layers. Thanks to these tiny particles, the durabillity of the frame is improved – and it’s also less sensitive to impacts and better able to withstand external forces. This combination of nanoresin particles and High Modulus fibres is what makes a C:62 out of a SHPC frame.
Integrated Cable Routing
Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
Press Fit BB
With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.
Advanced Twin Mold
The Advanced Twin Mold process eliminates any dangerous folding by continuous control of carbon fibers during the curing process. This is made possible by an internal form which provides the perfect frame form during the layup process. Each individual fibre remains precisely in position as it cures. In this way less material can be used as the individual layers can be more accurately and reliably positioned. This production method also makes it possible to increase the carbon fibre proportion in line with anticipated loadings at specific points on the frame. All SUPER HPC models from 2014 on are manufactured using this high-tech method.
Wet Paint Surface
On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
