Multi-sport athletes listen up: this is our response to the eternal race against the clock. The Aerium HPA’s high quality hydroformed aluminium frame combines the technology of a pro rider’s time trial machine with the aerodymanic ride position of a triathlete’s bike, but remains a versatile multi-sports machine. This is a bike that’s fun to ride but which also takes the fight to your competitors.
This bike is all about optimum aerodynamics for maximum speed. The triple butted High Performance Aluminium (HPA) frame uses elaborate hydroforming to increase rigidity whilst saving weight. A geometry that emphasises aerodynamic efficiency with a steep seat angle gives a ride position with minimal air resistance. The wind tunnel-friendly shape of the frame tubes and their specially designed joins save precious seconds on the race course, while the wide bottom bracket results in a stiff frame structure for the best possible power transfer.
We kitted out the Aerium HPA with Shimano’s competition-proven Ultegra transmission and a reliable FSA Trimax Pro chainset with 38 and 52T chainrings. The full carbon Dedacciai Black Fin Aero fork combines lightweight construction with superb aerodynamics. Profile’s 30/Twentyfour wheels and T4+ handlbar also do their bit to keep air resistance low. This race machine is equipped with Continental Sport Race SL tyres.
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
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.
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.
