Every range needs its flagship and, for the Attain series, this is it: the GTC SLT. The culmination of all Cubes expertise in carbon frame technology, this bike is all the proof you need that comfort and high performance aren't mutually exclusive. Far from it, in fact - this is a bike that's right at home leading out the peloton day after day, whether on a long alpine climb or a high speed, twisting descent. With a brand new Fulcrum Racing 66 disc wheelset and a complete complement of Shimano's superb Ultegra components - newly updated for 2018 with technology borrowed from the range-topping Dura Ace - this is a no-compromise speed machine that'll flatter any rider's best efforts. With cutting edge disc brake technology thrown in for good measure, you'll always have a big safety reserve for slowing and stopping - even at high speed, in poor weather or on a long descent. With a bike this fast, that's good to know.

Disc brake forces need a different approach to frame design and construction. That's why Cube's Comfort Flex carbon frame is equipped with 12mm through axle front and rear - they massively increase the frame's stiffness. It's also the reason they opted for a tapered head tube with integrated headset, into which they fitted a CUBE CSL Race carbon fork. To soften the impact of harsh road vibrations, they fitted aero Flex Stays at the rear. They make this uncompromising race machine as sublimely comfortable as it is ruthlessly efficient. Routing all cables internally fulfils two functions. First, it maximises service life, so that your gear shifts stay smooth and precise for longer. And second, it complements the frame's clean, sleek, Gran Turismo-inspired looks. Cube even allowed for winter training rides by leaving space for full length mudguards, so now you can train and ride in greater comfort.
