This bike is at home on the streets of big cities across the world. We’ve added useful new features to the Travel EXC, and our engineers have developed a brand new frame for even more versatility and comfort. The efficient ride position combined with a light frame and rigid, precise-steering aluminium fork turns every road into an adventure. The Travel Pro EXC is your ideal travel companion, whether you’re zipping through the streets or taking your time and soaking in the sights.
The Travel EXC deserves the best: a lightweight, efficient, comfortable and sturdy aluminium frame. It’s a brand new design featuring clearance for tyres up to 2.25in. The tapered head tube and accurate rigid aluminium fork give precise handling at high speed, even when fully laden. The double butted tubeset was welded with our proprietary Smooth Welding technique and head and seat tube junctions. The 3D forged dropout includes the disc brake mount and allows our Easy Mount kickstand to be fitted, while our Frame Safe System derailluer hanger is replaceable in case of accidental damage - which means the frame won’t be a write-off if the worst happens. And, of course, the frame passed the stringent standards set by our own CUBE test collective.
The CUBEstand Pro rear kickstand is made in Germany - which means it supports the Travel EXC perfectly. The light Standwell Bag Carrier luggage rack is solid enough to take up to 25kg in weight. If you’re planning a round the world tip, you’ll also need to retrofit a Lowrider rack onto the aluminium fork’s built-in mounts. Shimano Deore and XT gear components provide 30 gears to make riding fun, while matching BR-M355 hydraulic disc brakes add powerful grip when it’s needed.
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.
The new STEREO , FRITZZ and HANZZ models are built using Advanced Hydroforming. Conventional hydroforming processes cannot achieve these custom shapes and technical advantages. As this manufacturing method reduces the number of welds, the weight is reduced while durability is increased. All
Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
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.
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.
