Description

Finally for this year the Access GTC has received a completely new and super light carbon frame from the creatives Cube Bicycles. So now with the prestigious complete Shimano XT 11-speed groupset and Manitou’s Minute fork the Access WLS ride adds up be to a true high-tech, high-performance bike. Now when rolling it out of your fabulous urban garage it’s ready to compete in XC events or to take extended MTB trips with your close friends.

The new Access WLS Frame boasts carbon manufacturing at its best, with complex Twin Mold Monocoque process allowed for them to produce the setup with a much lower weight alongside extremely high stiffness only where it’s needed, along with added bump compliance elsewhere. This was achieved on the Access WLS with several key items like a tapered headtube, PressFit bottom bracket, Direct-Mounting for both the front and rear derailleurs and X-12 rear thru axle. While the smaller 27.2mm seatpost diameter now provides compliance on washboards and the like.

This not only adds up to you’re noticeable comfort over rough ground, but now you can add in Cube’s highly praised Agile Ride Geometry to completely take care of the typical nimble and fun Cube handling.

Having best in class suspension action and super low weight, speaks volumes for the Manitou Minute TS 100mm fork with remote lock out. While the power and modulation of the Shimano XT trail brakes are no slouch either. Also the lightweight wheels get up to speed fast and will have you rolling happily mile after mile.

To finish the GTC ride all the rider/ bike contact points are all female specific, which feature a dynamic yet comfortable Performance Lady saddle along with their own homegrown Syntace/ Access WLS cockpit for perfect handling and an ergonomically correct ride.

Description

Finally for this year the Access GTC has received a completely new and super light carbon frame from the creatives Cube Bicycles. So now with the prestigious complete Shimano XT groupset and Manitou’s Minute TS fork the Access WLS ride adds up be to a true high-tech, high-performance bike. Now when rolling it out of the shop it’s ready to compete in XC events or to take extended MTB trips with close friends.

The new Access WLS Frame boasts carbon manufacturing at its best, with complex Twin Mold Monocoque process allowed for them to produce the setup with a much lower weight alongside extremely high stiffness. This was achieved on the Access WLS with several key items like a tapered headtube, PressFit bottom bracket, Direct-Mounting for both the front and rear derailleurs and X-12 rear thru axle. While the smaller 27.2mm seatpost diameter now provides compliance on washboards and the like.

This not only adds up to you’re noticeable comfort over rough ground, but now you can add in Cube’s highly praised Agile Ride Geometry to completely take care of the typical nimble and fun Cube handling.

Cube Access WLS GTC SL 29-27.5

Having best in class suspension action and super low weight, speaks volumes for the Manitou Minute 100mm fork with remote lock out. While the power and modulation of the Shimano XT trail brakes are no slouch either. Also the lightweight Fulcrum Red 44 wheels get up to speed fast and will have you rolling happily mile after mile.

To finish the GTC ride all the rider/ bike contact points are all female specific, which feature a dynamic yet comfortable Selle Italia X1 Lady saddle along with their own homegrown Syntace/ Access WLS cockpit for perfect handling and an ergonomically correct ride.

2015 CUBE

Description

When your out on the trail and you suddenly decide to stomp on the pedals, the instant reaction from the Cube Sting WLS is nothing less than rocket-like acceleration. Which is why the Sting WLS 140 SL is the weapon of chioce by the Cube Enduro Pro Crew, because they ultimately know the suspension bike is going to be there when they put it all on the line.

The crew of Cube designers have entered the category of true all-mountain/trail women’s specific bikes. And this model is specifically designed for both the 27.5″ and 29″ wheel format along with a high-quality component pick. Allowing for the Cube setup to provide the most fun possible while being nearly limitless in versatility – ride it in a marathon race, for MTB touring or all-mountain style.

As the newest addition to Women’s MTB series the Sting WLS includes all of our aluminium frame manufacturing know-how – triple butted tubing, elaborate hydroforming, tapered headtube, PressFit bottom bracket and X-12 adaptable dropouts, integrated cable routing and Post Mount disc tabs. With their modified Agile Ride Geometry and Efficient Trail Control the Sting WLS has very agile handling but is still confidence inspiring with plenty of reserves for very rough trails. The steeper sloping toptube on the frame with a very low standover height and the forged Smooth Rocker create a dynamic and unique look.

The frame sizes are divided in half accordingly, they built the Sting WLS 29 for sizes 16″ and 18″. While the Sting WLS 27.5 pairs with the 13.5″ and 15″ models, to serve up a ton of fun..

COMPONENTS

By employing a custom tuned Fox Float CTD shock to the RockShox Reba RL 120mm fork with remote lock out, the base is there for taming every trail out there. As the Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur and XT Compact cranks (40/30/22) will guarantee you get maximum mileage before needing a service, along with gear ratios perfectly matched for the demands of bigger diameter wheels. While Shimano´s i-Spec integrates the shifter pods seamlessly into the brake levers, which keeps the Sting WLS 120 cockpit not only ergonomically perfect, but nice and tidy to boot.
