CUBE Editor 11 gear grey´n´silver 2021
The Editor is a light urban bike with state-of-the-art high-end components - including the Gates Carbon Drive CDX belt and Alfine 11 speed hub gears. It has a sleek and elegant look. The Editor represents a virtuoso performance of style, speed and skill; an efficient bike using cutting edge technology giving it a long life and a minimum of maintenance.
The CUBE Editor has a double butted aluminum frame with special features because of the durable belt drive. The precision-forged Split & Slide dropout can be opened to fit the belt, and accurately adjusted with two screws. The frame is designed with a specific torsional stiffness, because this is the only way the belt can be aligned accurately when under pressure. As for why the frame is so light, only the CUBE engineers know the reason for that...
The CUBE Editor is kitted out exclusively with high-end components designed for urban use, including the Shimano Alfine gear system with 11 speed hub and Alfine shifter, and matching Deore BR-M6000 disc brakes. This high tech bike features the Gates crank and the matching CDX – CenterTrack belt drive, whose groove system ensures that it's always perfectly aligned. It's also absolutely silent and needs virtually no maintenance. We can easily have the Editor retrofitted with mudguards, a kickstand, luggage rack and frame lock. The minimalist rigid aluminum fork perfectly complements the frame's sleek design and saves weight, whilst also ensuring that the steering is direct and precise. The Schwalbe Marathon Supreme kevlar tires ensures good puncture resistance and a smooth ride.
This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
SPLIT & SLIDE DROPOUT
The SPLIT function allows the frame to open at the rear dropout to enable a drive belt to be mounted. The SLIDE function at the horizontal adjustable dropout allows wheel adjustment and chain/belt tension to be made easily without having to readjust the disc brakes. Adjustment screws avoid readjusting the wheel and ensure perfect function and durability.
Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
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.
