About The Axial:
Cube's Axial is a great example of the do-it-all road bike, and one that offers excellent value for money too. Starting with the full carbon fibre frame, Cube engineered performance into the core of the Axial with a chunky and stiff downtube, chainstays and tapered head tube. These sections help transfer your power through to the back wheel as efficiently as possible, as well as improving handling. A strong core like this really allows you to lean the bike over in turns and place it where you need to with confidence.
The flip side to this strength and stiffness is the slight seat stays which help vibrations dissipate through the frame, rather than being passed through to the rider. The full carbon fork also helps in this regard, as well as saving a lot of weight. 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.
This GTC SL model specification complements the frame with a mixed Shimano Ultegra compact groupset with 105 hydraulic brakes. Ultegra is really the benchmark of drivetrain performance. It's light, it's smooth, it's robust, and it looks great. Plus adjustable brake levers allow you to dial in the fit to suit your hands for maximum control. Fulcrum Racing wheels are a light and stiff addition that drop a substantial amount of weight overall. The less rotating weight, the faster your acceleration, so this is a great component choice. Add 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.
Full carbon frame, Ultegra groupset, nice wheelset, al for well under £2,000? The Axial is incredible value and awesome performance rolled into one.
