About The Axial:
Cube's Axial is the a great example of the do-it-all road bike, and one that offers excellent value for money too. Starting with the aluminium frame, Cube have carefully strengthened areas where stiffness is paramount, like the large head tube, ovalised downtube and chunky seat stays. This allows for excellent power transfer and confident handling. Thin and flattened seat stays bring comfort to the ride, because as much as all want to go fast, no one wants to feel beat up at the end of every ride. Comfort is also improved with a full carbon fork, which incidentally saves a lot of weight over an alloy equivalent.
Thru-axles again help with handling by minimising flex in key areas, besides which they allow for consisitent wheel changes as there is only one position the wheel can fit in the frame and fork. Internal cable routing keeps things neat and tidy, as well as protecting cables from the worst of the weather for better performance and longer life. All together the aluminium Attain frame keeps the best characteristics of it's more expensive carbon cousins to offer a high performance ride equally at home springint out of the saddle or racking up century rides.
This Race model specification complements the frame with a mixed Shimano 105 compact groupset. A wide ranging 11-34t cassette and 22 gear spread provide a good ratio for all types of riding, and in terms of quality, 105 sits squarely in the middle of performance verses value, so is a great match for the Axial. Matching 105 hydraulic disc brakes mean powerful and controlled braking, and the levers have 10mm of adjustment to get the perfect fit for every size of hand. Cube's own Aero Disc wheelset is decently light, defnitely strong, and rolls nicely on 28mm Continental tyres for a great balance of comfort and grip. A well thought out finishing kit completes the look for an all round road bike capable of everything from Sunday club runs through to long distance sportives.
The Axial Race is a great performing road bike happy to do a bit of everything. A well-made frame, a dialled build kit, and super fit & handling make it a winner.
