It’s no coincidence that this racing bike wears the SL acronym. The Agree C:62 SL is capable of practically flying up the climbs - and always one gear higher than the competition. This incredible performance also explains why it’s wearing Wanty team colours. At home in the peloton, this Dura Ace equipped bike transforms every ounce of effort at the pedals into blistering straight-line speed. That’s the Agree C:62’s sole purpose: speed. No more, no less.
This super light race chassis doesn’t just look fast; it IS fast. The entirely new frame is supplied complete with matching CSL Evo carbon fork - and both feature attachment points for Direct Mount brakes to improve aerodynamics and reduce weight even further. As you’d expect, we designed this frame for Di2, so it’s future-proof. The seat clamp has been integrated into the seat tube to enhance both appearance and aerodynamics. For maximum stiffness we’ve fitted a tapered head tube and PressFit bottom bracket, and we’ve also run all the cables internally to increase ther service life and reduce the need for maintenance.
Fulcrum Racing 44 Aero wheels are already light, but the 40mm aerodynamic deep section makes them even faster. FSA rider contact points include the SL-K seat post and carbon front end. Braking is handled by Shimano Direct Mount brakes, while the transmission is from Shimano’s range-topping Dura Ace - the choice of pro riders. A compact chainset with 50 and 34 tooth chainrings drives the 11 tooth cassette, while 25mm Schwalbe One Kevlar tyres transfer power to the road.
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 gives 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.
Frame Safe System
To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
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.
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.
