The Attain SL Disc proves that hydraulic disc brakes belong on a race bike. Its braking performance - assured, and with the minimum of effort - matches both its cornering ability on narrow, tight turns and its climbing prowess on steep mountain passes. And, as you'd expect from a bike in the Attain series, the ergonomically balanced and comfortable ride position is the perfect setup for any adventure on the road.
Frame: Our engineers dug deep into their bag of tricks for this frame. To improve its rigidity, they treated it to X12 quick releases front and rear. Both the frame and the Cube CSL carbon fork have been specifically developed to work with disc brakes. For the frame material, we chose our formidable Superlite aluminium tubeset, joined with our Smooth Welding process and featuring internal cable routing for clean looks and minimal maintenance. The Flip Flop adaptor means that either 140mm or 160mm discs can be used on the front wheel. And for winter training, there's even the option of mounting mudguards to keep the spray off.
Features: The Attain SL Disc features a whole range of technical highlights. Shimano's proven 105 groupset delivers the shifting performance you've come to expect in 2x11 format. The compact chainset with 50-34 chainrings drives a cassette with 11 to 32 teeth for an unmatched gear range, while Shimano's BR-RS505 disc brakes with 160mm rotors front and rear bring it all to a halt, whatever the road conditions. We opted for the superb Mavic Aksium Disc wheelset, and shod it with Continental's grippy Grand Sport Race SL tyres.
