Cube now Agrees with discs

Mid-range carbon bike gets ground-up redesign, new Attain endurance ride launched

We got a first glance at Cube’s all new Agree back in July at the Eurobike press preview event in Austria. Back then details were a little thin on the ground as regards range and pricing, but we now have more.

The new chassis has been designed with aero in mind, and using lessons learnt from the Aerium TT platform including the dropped seatstays and fork integration into the down and head tube. The new frame tips the scales at around a kilo and the fork adds another 370g. The disc version gets thru-axles front and rear (using Syntace’s X-12 standard for both).

The Agree C62 range starts at £1599 for the C62 disc with full Shimano 105, BR-RS505 hydraulic brakes and Fulcrum Racing 77 disc wheels with a claimed weight of 8.55kg it looks like an impressive package for the price.

The base model standard braked bike is the C62 Pro at £1799, which weighs in at 850g less thanks to its full Ultegra group and Mavic Cosmic wheelset. The Race level disc bike is set to retail for £2199 and gets full Ultegra and Shimano’s new flat-mount BR-RS805 brakes matched to classy DT Swiss spline R32 wheels and tips the scales at 7.95kg.

The top level SL with standard brakes comes in at £2599, features a Dura-Ace drivetrain, Ultegra brakes and deep section Fulcrum Racing 44 wheels and weighs in at 7.35kg.

Sitting at the very top of the range is the C62 SLT Disc, with Dura-Ace, BR-RS805 flat-mount brakes and Fulcrum’s Racing Quattro carbon wheels for £3299 and 7.7kg complete.

Joining the new Agree is an all new entry level carbon and aluminium range, called the Attain. The carbon models get the GTC suffix, and feature a more angular frame design, but under the skin Cube has set about creating a more comfortable platform for longer rides.

Compared with the previous Agree, the new Attain’s comfort-flex-carbon design is claimed to offer seven percent higher stiffness throughout but with a massive 40 percent increase in comfort.

The alu Attain follows the same frame design and shares the same slender fork. The aluminium tubing has been designed to emulate the carbon GTC’s character but at a much lower price.

The Attain is available in both standard and (flat-mount) disc versions and prices start from £599 for aluminium and £1299 for carbon. The range-topping Attain GTC SL disc comes with Shimano Ultegra and BR-RS505 brakes and DT Swiss Spline R24 wheels for £1799, and tips the scales at 8.85kg.

Cube has also expanded its parts and accessories line, plus its women’s-specific road bike offering. See the gallery for our choice pics from the 2016 range.
