We’ve given the Touring SL only the best ingredients for long rides and hard daily use. Technophiles and everyday riders alike will admire the 30 gears, high-performance LED headlamp and CUBE performance cockpit, while the hydraulic disc brake is powerful and dependable, whatever the weather decides to do. The Touring SL is perfect for anyone looking for a real challenge, whether that’s right on your doorstep or on another continent.
We’ve equipped the Touring SL with a lightweight, double butted frame available in three variants: classic double diamond men’s, trapeze or with easy entry via a low, specially hydroformed down tube. Concealing the cables inside the down tube tidies up the bike and helps them last longer. Efficient Comfort Geometry is both comfortable and efficient for long days in the saddle, while our extremely stiff 3D forged dropouts integrate the brake caliper mount as well as a fitting for our CUBE Easy Mount kickstand. It all adds up to a stable and high quality frame, worthy of the wheels and equipment we’ve fitted to it.
A Shimano transmission with Deore XT rear derailleur gives 30 gears - a wide enough range to tackle any kind of terrain. Stopping power is courtesy of a set of Shimano’s powerful, reliable BR-M355 hydraulic discs, which will haul bike and rider safely to a halt irrespective of the weather or how heavy the load is. The built-in Busch & Müller lighting system with 20 lux output and reliable hub dynamo, combined with SKS mudguards, makes the Touring SL the perfect choice for unpredictable weather or when rides unexpectedly lengthen into the evening shadows.
Easy Mount Kickstand
The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.
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.
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.
