The Access WLS GTC SL's superlight monocoque carbon frame, high performance Shimano XT components and smooth Manitou Minute suspension fork mark it out as a truly high tech piece of sporting equipment. Straight out of the box, it's ready to take on allcomers out on the race course - including the men. But it's not just a racing snake - it also performs brilliantly on long, technical rides in the back country. For 2017 we've stuck with our highly acclaimed Size-Split, so it's available with 27.5 inch wheels in 13.5 and 16 inch frame sizes, and as a 29er in 17 and 19 inch sizes.
Frame: This is carbon frame construction at its best. The Access GTC frame - produced with our Twin Mould Monocoque construction technique - achieves its exceptional weight and incredible stiffness only by making use of the latest technologies including a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket, Direct Mount derailleur attachments and the X12 axle. In order to improve comfort over longer distances, we opted for a slender 27.2mm seatpost. Our highly acclaimed Agile Ride Geometry, optimised for each wheel size, ensures solid propulsion and an agile ride feel.
Features: Only the best will do: the Manitou Minute suspension fork with 100mm hub and the supremely controllable Shimano XT disc brakes work together to help tame even the toughest of singletrack trails. Extraordinarily light and stiff Fulcrum Red 66 system wheels deliver fast acceleration. With a 26/36 chainset and 11-42 tooth cassette, the full 2x11 Shimano XT transmission delivers incredibly precise shifts over the widest possible gear range. Rider contact points from the Selle Italia SC1 Lady saddle to the CUBE cockpit components combine the best possible handling experience with superb ergornomics.
